1935 Dennis 45cwt chassis plus spares

Recommended Posts

I acquired this chassis originally for spares for a Dennis bus, but it is just too good to break. Mechanically it is complete, and there are many spare parts to go with it, including radiator. Regrettably the body was recently in a state of collapse, but the cab doors and tin work were salvageable. It has a V5 (registered with van body) and I believe some restoration work was started in the past, as various items have had at least a coat of paint. It runs reasonably healthily, the cone clutch is free and it goes into all gears. The engine is the Dennis sidevalve 4 of 3.7litre capacity, common to a few other Dennis models and certainly some pumps. A great project for somebody who has the resources. I would like about £1500 but I am open to serious offers as this really deserves to be restored. It came with very little history but I can assist with provenance as one of its working identities (most likely built as a pantechnicon) is now known.

Blank canvas for somebody. I was tempted to make a start but the reality is with two buses to look after already, plus being involved in various other vehicles and a transport museum, this never gets a look in. It arrived here in a far better state than I imagined, and would love for somebody to take it on. There was an air ministry Dennis chassis, I think in many ways these were similar.
