The Dennis SS series fire engine was produced from the early
1980s until the 1990s. The Dennis SS was almost identical with the
previous RS model. It incorporated the same cab design. engine and
gearbox except the SS had a tilting cab which made maintenance and
overhaul much easier. It could be fitted with a variety of bodies
by Dennis and other coachbuilders such as JDC. Carmichael and
Fulton Wylie. Even though the cab design of the SS dates from 1978. br/>they are seen to this day in fire brigades throughout the world
with many still in front-line use. Several variants were built. The
earlier models (SS130-SS137) were powered by Perkins V8 engines. br/>with both manual and automatic gearboxes. Later models
(SS233-SS245) were powered by Cummins diesel engines. Most
appliances had Kirkstall & Eaton axles fitted. front and rear
respectively. some with limited slip differentials. All chassis
came with a choice of 500gpm or 1. 00gpm fire pumps. depending on
application.

This 1989 Dennis SS235 with a Carmichael body saw service with the
Humberside Fire Brigade for five years from 1989 to 1994. Fitted
with an 8. 2 litre Cummings diesel engine. this fire engine still
has its original working water pump. In recent years. the water
tank has been removed bringing the weigh below 7½ tons and it has
been registered with DVLA as a limousine for party hire and
therefore can be driven on a normal car licence. Of course it is
still finished in fire engine red with black interior but it has
had some additions to the cab to make it into a party limousine and
is supplied with a V5C registration document and collection of old
MoT test certificates. On offer at no reserve it would make an
interesting addition to any collection. Price Guild £3. 00 -
£5. 00
