Land Rover Series 2 II 1958 Fire Tender Orig 2.0 Petrol SOLD
|This is exceeding rare on two accounts.|
The 1st that is a very early Series 2 Chassis number 141801096.
The 2nd that it was supplied to Somerset Fire Brigade when new for use as a fire tender.
It has its original 2.0 engine number 141805482 which runs well.
Only approx 1700 Series 2's were fitted with this engine due to the new 2.25 engines being in short supply.
Up to date V5 document present and reg number is transferable but that would ruin the history of the vehicle!
Comes with lots of Fire brigade paperwork which is great.
New to Somerset in 1958, issued to B1 Yeovil after it was sprayed Red at the Somerset County Council Workshops at Underwood Quarry in Wells.
It then went to B3 Martock circa 1963/64 where it remained until it was taken off the run circa 1975 and sold by the Brigade. Its shown on a Fire Brigade Society fleetlist from 1974 at Martock.
Has been a soft top from new and would have been fitted with a bell and flashing blue light as shown in picture 2 of a later somerset Land Rover.
The chassis is the original and still has the stamped number on the front dump iron.
Chassis will need some work but is not in bad condition with a good rear crossmember.
The bulkhead has its original footwells in superb order and will not need too much repair work elsewhere.
This will make a superb restoration project for someone wanting a Land Rover that is a bit different and you will stand out at shows in the sea of Bronze Green!
You will not see another of these for sale for a while if ever.
TAX & MOT EXEMPT.
