1908 Dennis Truck

Back in 2005 a friend of mine found a late 1920s Dennis chassis in Kent (I was in no position to take on a project at that point). It did not find a home but was broken up and virtually all the parts distributed across the country to help restoration projects.

Unusually the chassis still had the petrol tank mounted but after all these years it turns out it did not fit the intended project so was offered to me.

The body layout drawings in the 1908 catalogue give the dimensions as 15"x9-1/2"x3'6" - exactly the size of this one.

It has the Snercold patent filler described in the catalogues too. Snercold was the trademark for the Safety Non-Explosive Reservoir Company
