Dennis F27 as found - tin machine

this was taken on the day i found the "tin machine" on widmere farm near Marlow in Bucks where she had resided for 18 years as you can see she had been stood out in the open but cleaned up really well after much work with a steam cleaner!
after checking oil level and a service on the engine she was running perfectly and all systems seemed live within a few days she was on the lo-loader back to Abingdon and a thourough inspection and mechanical overhaul

Hi Jason, nice machine. It's a former Surrey TL Magirus DL30 from 1961.
Did you get it fully operational? Can you please check for me the TL number?

Hi it was Chertsey's appliance from 61-79 the TL number i think is what is on the wheel chocks? it reads TL33? But on the first aid tin it reads SFB 12, It was one of two F27's the other went to Guildford its reg was 49WPA
