Land Rover Series 2 1960 109" RAF ACRT Airfield Crash Rescue Tender
Sellers Comments - The RAF ordered a number of these from a company called Foamite based at Feltham in Middlesex and the RAF registration numbers ran from 39AA00 - 39AA73 39AA32 is chassis number 151100245, built 10.10.60, despatched 22.11.60 to RAF ATCHAM. It was received from Foamite (after conversion) on 08.01.62, and first issued 29.01.62 to Bomber Command. It went to RAF Cottesmore on 21.01.74. It has a large amount of the correct fire equipment still with it including the rare floodlight and search light. It has two powder containers and a portable fire extinguisher. There are 4 hoses and stowage racks. This will be a great Land Rover to take to shows as you will probably have the only one! The chassis is original and still has the chassis number on the front dumb iron.It is all very solid and needs minimal welding in small areas. The bulkhead is very solid and will need some welding to the original footwells.. The 2.25 petrol engine turns over but I have not had it running as the original radiator is out at present. Will need brakes recommissioning and a new exhaust as it has not been on the road for many years. You could have this back on the road after a light restoration or do the full monty and have a very valuable rare Land Rover. It has never been road registered but this will be easy to do through the Land Rover Series 2 club.
