Built by a French firm in 1913 using a Burrell SCC cylinder block.

Brought to the UK 15 years ago and is in a ready-to-go state.

We have been asked to advertise this impressive roller on behalf of the owner. A fantastic piece of equipment which is totally unique. The French firm only produced this example with the SCC cylinder block. Chataignier No. 141 had a feature article in Vintage Spirit around 10 years ago.

It has been all over Europe and reputedly worked originally in France before ending up in the Netherlands. The current owners brought it in from the Netherlands 15 years ago and the maintenance has been kept up with since then. The boiler has been given a good bill of life and was retubed 7 years ago - the engine will be supplied with a fresh, 10-year hydraulic certificate by a reputable boiler inspector. In recent years it has also had axle and bearing work. Generally the engine itself and the boiler is as good as can be expected - in terms of viewing the roller, any potential buyers would be welcome to arrange any independent tests or checks to confirm this. 

The main job to do is the gear drive train. They will need either work or replacement before it is used seriously on the road however it is useable as it is. Further, it will be supplied alongside a new chimney and chimney base as the current is tired. 

It is on rubber tyres which helps with slipping and with loading on lorries. The livery is reflective of what it originally would have looked like when new and is a chestnut brown.

It has been out of use for the past 4 years as the owner has had other ventures but was on the 2018 rally scene. The owner feels it is not being used enough so wishes the engine to go to a new home who can use it more.  

The engine is not based at our premises, however we will liaise with the vendor and interested parties to arrange any viewings.

£39,995

NEW PRICE £37,995
