The owner also has by separate negotiation a 3.0 V6 Essex, bullnose bonnet, front panel, overdrive gearbox, prop, crossmember and rhd steering box.

Body - Very solid from front to back. Never been welded anywhere and wont need any if looked after. Paintwork is as it was in the German Fire service. Base colour is red with some white added. Van is perfectly useable as it is but has picked up a few minor scratches and light dents over the years. Overall though in superb order for its age. Few bits been touched up over the years.

Interior - Good front seats, dash original rubber floor mat. Still has additional wooden seats in the back and racking with a lot of the original equipment on it.

Mechanics - 1700 V4 engine which is really sweet, Slight hesitation when pulling through the gears but nothing that a good service wouldnt sort. 4 speed original box. Clutch and brakes are all good. These trucks were very low geared due to the fact they were designed to pull half a dozen fireman, equipment and a water pump. Flat out is about 55,mph but most people who buy these change the diff to give better gearing.

Specialist equipment. - Still has its original lights, ladders, outside horn, period two way radio, seats in back, racking, hoses, couplings and more.

This is a superbly preserved original and solid old van with a lot of original equipment still on it which you dont find in may of them. Please feel free to come and see the van.
