Lot 200 - 1939 Leyland Fire Engine
|Result||Sold - £16,240|
You will not miss this 1939 Leyland Cub Fire Engine at our auction! Originally supplied when new to Budleigh Salterton district council, Devon. We are informed that DOD 37 served during WW2 in Plymouth, Exeter and Bristol. We are also told that this imposing Fire truck was sold for scrap in 1964. It was found 15 years later in a derelict state, in a Doncaster scrapyard. Bernard Land and his son purchased the truck in 1989 and restored it to the impressive original, working condition we see today. Presenting, unsurprisingly and traditionally, in red with acres of chrome work, this engine has many authentic details including a brass bell and Lucas headlights which are both inscribed ‘king of the road’. Offered to auction with a V5c registration document.
Interested parties please note that this vehicle requires a new water pump.
