Streets on fire: 1977 Range Rover Commando by Carmichael


Never seen before a fire truck based on a Range Rover: this one was built by Carmichael in order to be used at the Jersey airport (Channel Islands, UK) and was originally panted in yellow.


The seller says that after some years of service the car was then given to Caernaforn, England and then was repainted in he same red you can see now. This car is pushed by its Rover 3.5L V8 engine and it has an added axle on the back: the car is still a 4×4 so the third axle is needed to increase the load capacity of the vehicle.


The original equipment is still on the car: the foam tank on the back and the intimidating cannon on the roof, controlled from the inside of the cockpit. The seller says that the body is sound as well as the engine and transmission, the only work to do before going around scarying your neighborhood is fixing the clutch and brake pumps. Find it for sale at €12,000 (today $12,700) here in Verona, Italy.
