We have Doncaster 43, a 1965 Leyland Royal Tiger Cub here at the SYTT in Rotherham under restoration. The replacement engine is configured to be fitted with a ZF 6 speed manual gearbox and we need the gear selector assembly to suit. (Change speed unit, selector shaft with brackets etc) These parts would be found on a later Leopard or Tiger, does anyone know of a spares chassis with these parts for sale? Thanks in advance, Martyn Callaghan 07765404403 — looking for recommendations.

AUCTION - Leyland Lioness LTB1 - City of Bristol Fire Brigade (HY 1801)

City of Bristol Fire Brigade HY1801, a Leyland Lioness LTB1 dating from 1931 and painstakingly restored by the late David Berry is to be sold at auction on 2nd May 2019 at Philip Serrell Auctions in Malvern.

HY1801 – which will be available to view on 1st and 2nd May - is one of only 5 LTB1 Lioness Six FE's to be manufactured.  Received in Bristol in May 1931 this 12’3” wheelbase Lioness carries a Braidwood body and the front tubular cross member had been moved forward so the engine and the power take-off for the pump could be accommodated. The midships mounted Rees Roturbo 700gpm turbine pump with the unreliable self-primer which had been trialled on the first LTB1 pump made for Liverpool was however not fitted, it instead has twin deliveries each side. It carries a 2-section John Morris 'Ajax' extension ladder.  This was the first Bristol Leyland to have a windscreen.  The appliance went into service at Central but was later moved to Avonmouth. 

Only 3 are known to exist today, one in South Africa - in preservation but not running, one in Bristol - in preservation but also not running and HY1801 which is in full running order. It served for 35 years in the Bristol Fire Brigade and was one of the few Fire Service vehicles never to be painted grey for wartime duties. Subsequent owners have included English China Clay Quarries - who used her to pump out flooded pits and the Lex Group who were Leyland agents for many years. She was sold at auction at Crewkerne to a garage in Kent and eventually passed into preservation.  One claim to fame is that she was used on a film shoot for the 'Nanny' series starring Wendy Craig.

Bought in 1993 David Berry has restored the vehicle to its present excellent condition. David attended many shows and events with HY1801 including thirty performances at The Royal Tournament and also won awards on the London to Brighton Commercial Vehicle run for three consecutive years.
