Fire Eater II


Description

The Fire Eater II was originally a Corgi Juniors model, the ERF Fire Tender. The ERF Fire Tender being a British-built Fire engine used mostly in Europe. The casting was originally used by Corgi starting in the early 1970s alongside the Mercedes-Benz Bus, and Porsche 911 Carrera. This was the second Fire engine casting made by Corgi and then remade by Hot Wheels, after the Flame Stopper II, also known as the ' ERF Simon Snorkel Fire Engine'. Cast into the side of this vehicle is a hose reel, on the left-hand side of the casting, indicating it would be right-hand drive if it had an interior piece, as in the UK, Fire engines typically have their hose reel on the left-hand side of the engine for ease of getting hoses to the fire from the parked vehicle.
