76TIL006 Austin Tilly City of Leeds Fire Brigade

Regular price $10.00 Sale

The Austin Tilly (Utility) was essentially a civilian vehicle which was also adapted in large numbers for military use during WWII.

Here we see it in its civilian role, as used as a support vehicle for the City of Leeds Fire Brigade, whose colourful City Crest in blue, yellow, white, black and gold features on both sides of the cab doors.

A tooling modification sees the usual canvas back replaced with a new rear body part giving the vehicle double side windows and a wide single window across the back.

Decorated in red with red wheels and silver wheel inserts, black chassis and mudguards, our fire support truck is registered KNW 224.

The area above the cab still retains the spade and spare wheel.
