1958 Mercedes Unimog 404 Fire Engine


SOLD 1958 Mercedes Unimog Fire Engine

Original Fire Engine

Fully Coachbuilt, no doubt the industrial model, airport, factory locations etc

The engine has been rebuilt by the vendor over a number of years. Now looking for an enthusiast who has a secret fetish for fire appliances..time to come out of the closet!!

The vendor has supplied the following information:

We purchased the vehicle in June 2016, and spent the following 2 years restoring the vehicle.
The engine has been fully restored and a new clutch fitted at a cost of £3500. The braking system has had all the hydraulics etc replaced. The bodywork was repaired and fully resprayed, please note that the body is fully detachable.
This vehicle was 1 of 3 built in 1958 by Jennings, this 1 is the only survivor. This vehicle when new was supplied to Manchester Airport when they finished using it the vehicle was sent to St. Helens Transport Museum where we found it. 
Due to 2 heart attacks we had to close our business which resulted in us having nowhere to keep her and therefore the requirement to sell her.

On site now for viewing.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Don't forget. We personally collect FREE of charge around 90% of all our auction vehicles.
