This vehicle has had a long and varied life. It was originally a seven-seater touring car, running on pneumatic tyres. Later it was converted into an estate fire engine and fitted with a Merryweather steam fire pump from an old horse-drawn fire engine.

Both boiler and engine are in working order and regularly operated at rallies. It has an opposed piston engine: 4 cylinders – 8 pistons!
