 Land Rover Land Rover Series III 1980

The perfect toy for fire engine collectors, repressed pyromaniacs or lockdown loonies.
We have been lucky enough to have some amazing Aerodrome rapid response vehicles pass through our hands (and hope to have more, call us if you have a similar toy to sell: (07706) 574136).
Why burn your ex partners house down just for the thrill of seeing the fire engines turn up? Cut out the middleman/person. Buy your own fire engine!

This has to be the most user-friendly and ready-to-go example.
Below is the vendor’s description, and he seems to be a pretty sensible chap who ought to know is talking about, given the fact that he runs an Aerodrome.
Note the mileage. It’s extraordinarily low.

“Land Rover Series III Fire Engine with Full MOT. Used as a fire response vehicle for an Aerodrome. Serviced every 4 months as per Aviation Rules. 57,000 miles. Lights all working (blues not disconnected). A chance for a excellent condition collectible. Starts first time, and runs beautifully. Ran on high end budget for many years, kept inside and heated. A fun to drive fire vehicle. Fire media and radios removed.”The gearbox and drivetrain is impeccable and it is equipped with elliptical rear springs.”

Drives impeccably. Perfect for a trip to the local pub (if it hasn’t closed down permanently, remember: having a pint is an act of support for your local community, as is smoking: the tobacco industry is a dying trade, and less than 6% of smoking related lung cancer patients survive, and are therefore less of a burden on our healthcare system, and the excise duty they pay on tobacco far exceeds the cost of hospital treatment, so light one up for the sake of the NHS). Moving on…
