This is an original vintage Matchbox diecast model of a Dennis Fire Engine with Escape Ladder (model no. 9) from the 1950’s. This is the 1958 version with metal wheels and crimped axles.

The model we have for sale, pictured on this page,  comes from a single-owner collection and is in superb condition. The only noticeable paint loss is a small amount of the gold detailing on the edges of the ladder. Apart from this, the paintwork is bright and unmarked.

The box is the original and has the correct model number printed on both end flaps. The box is generally in very good condition with just a little edge wear, but one end flap has been neatly re-attached with clear tape (on the inside only). Please see photos for more detail.

  • Model ref. no: 9
  • Length of model: 6cm (3.25 inches)
  • Boxed: Yes



  • Model: Near mint (Grade: 9.5/10)
  • Box: Very Good (Grade: 7.5/10)
