Full Description

1980 Land Rover SIII 109" Banbridge Fire Tender

Showing just 9,000 miles in the hands of its two Welsh Fire Service owners; stalled restoration project with many parts included

Supplied new in June 1980 this late model Series III Landy was delivered to its first owners, West Glamorgan Fire Service who were to keep it in active service until March 1998 when it transferred to Mid and West Wales Fire Brigade who owned it for many years until our vendor took the reins after the last un-registered owner passed away mid-restoration.

Offered here as an unfinished restoration in a non-running state it represents an exciting opportunity to restore to its former glory, particularly for those who have a passion for ex-service vehicles.

Appearing largely sound with some metalwork repairs carried already (to varying standards of quality) there is certainly scope to continue.  A mountain of parts and spares accompany this lot (photos to follow ahead of the sale) and include body panels/parts and an array of fire brigade kit including helmets, hoses, hydraulic pincers for cutting cars open etc - some of which may have good value to collectors hunting online which could help fund the continued restoration of the truck.

Within the history file, we find the current V5C, Fire Service Appliance log book with regular entries showing use up to 1992 and original delivery note and user instructions from Pilcher-Greene Ltd, suppliers of Medical & Commercial vehicles of West Sussex dated 17th June 1980.  The document refers to the vehicle as a 'Banbridge' MkII 109" wheel base with diesel engine and Mk.6 Godiva UFP pump No. 7561 with PTO for use with fresh water supplies.

A nice opportunity for sure, and quite by chance the number plate features '999' - how apt!
