1926 AUSTIN 20 Fire Engine For Sale by Auction

In our Thursday June 8th Auction

First registered on 1st January 1926 as an open drive landualette, and supplied by Griffins, of Haywards Heath to Goddens, ML 255 spent the first ten years as a hire car. In 1936 the Austin returned to Griffins, who then converted into a fire engine for the Brighton Asylum, St. Francis Hospital, Haywards Heath. It towed a Dennis Trailer Pump, which is available for sale, together with another example, by private treaty through the Auctioneers. Used until the outbreak of the Second World War, then installed in a children's playground.

The fire engine was then discovered by its late owner in 1963, who purchased it at a cost of £5. He then dry stored it until 1997, when a full restoration began. This was completed in time to take part in the 2001 Historic Commercial Vehicle London to Brighton Run on the 6th of May. The Austin completed several subsequent runs in the following years.

Now offered for sale, for the first time in over 50 years, the Austin is running well, and comes with some fire related equipment including period wellingtons, extinguishers, ladders, an early French brass fireman's helmet and, of course, a beautiful brass bell. A V5C protects its original period registration number.
