MAY BANK HOLIDAY BROOKLANDS EMERGENCY 999 DAY.


 
On May Day Terry Prince took his preserved Shelvoke SPV to Brooklands Emergency 999 Day. It looks lovely on a bright Spring Day. A credit to Terry and Chris Shelly Houghton.


FOR SALE ON EBAY.


 
This 1976 Shelvoke/Carmichael SPV Water Tender type B was advertised for sale on Ebay. The early SPV Fire Appliance has bodywork by Benson (A Carmichael subsidiary.) Powered by a Cummins V-504-B 8 cylinder diesel engine the Godiva pump delivers 1000 gallons per minute.  The vehicle has been dry stored for the last 4 years in a barn, and has a genuine 21,000 miles.

 I continue to be amazed at how these old vehicles  continue to turn up.
