Not all is as it seems…

By July 2, 2022Headline News

Although the red Morris Fire Tender  (UD 2682) on the right bears the same registration as the vehicle seen in the 1930 Auto Motor Journal magazine snippet on the left, one of the pair is an imposter. The car on the right is currently for sale on eBay and purports to be the restored original Morris Fire Tender as seen in the magazine cutting. It isn’t! It’s history is known and the non-transferable registration was re-allocated by the DVLA to the replica vehicle which was built from scratch in the seventies using a later spare chassis. The frame numbers of both the original (1929) and replica (1930) are known and recorded by the appropriate vehicle registers.  The vendor has been made aware of his erroneous description. Caveat Emptor!
