Morning all,

What a lot of metal for the money.

If the body structure is as sound as the outer panels look, then this dusty gem has lots of potential. The only issues are storage for something of this scale, and the potential cost of having it moved, but that reflects in the modest opening bid price of a smidge under 2k. Fire engines don't often do much for me to be honest, but these Commers look great I think. There's one like this local to us, which has been converted into a mobile pizza oven Shocked

This has been listed before at 5k.

Nice motor, don't think the price will stay low.

Beautiful curved lines.
What is that engine - 4 litre Blue Riband like the Humber Super Snipe?

Its the 4.7 litre slanted petrol engine, I have the same in mine. It is similar to the Snipe / Superpoise upright engine but has its differences due to it being slanted over 66 degrees.
