Sadly it is time to say goodbye, preferably to someone who wants an easy restoration project. I have been using this vehicle every Summer every week for the last 10 years but the garage has said she should get her chassis galvanised now before welding is required.I know the full history as she came from my place of work when the company I worked for bought her from the Woburn Abbey estate. She has lived in a fire house until 11 years ago and generally came out for her MOT not that it was legally required. We have had huge amounts of fun with the enormous pumping capacity but only ever pumped clean water. She was converted to Unleaded when she became a 2600cc by putting a new head on the old 4 cylinder block. Everything else is original except the G90 wheels on slightly extended studs. She loses water through a leaky pipe into the pump so drinks a little water but not through any gasket. The left front brake binds a little and despite new pipes etc. It needs someone with more knowledge to be sorted. The upper door pieces have moss growing on the join where water pours in when it rains hard. The internal tank has been removed so the inside is completely clear to be a 109 Land Rover. Ladder and suction pipes are available with the appliance if the price is right. I believe a 500gpm pump is rare on this particular model as this size pump was only introduced when the series 3 came out.
Normally a 330gpm pump internally mounted was normal. The pump and primer are always drained for Winter. The item "Land Rover Fire Engine Series 2A" is in sale since Wednesday, November 29, 2017.
