1956 Bedford RL Green Goddess
Registration no. PGW 33
Odometer Reading: TBA
MoT Expiry: Exempt

* Running and driving well
* Used on a farm for watering duties
* Remains presentable

The Bedford RL 'Green Goddess' has invariably found a new role in 'civvy street' after decades in military service, and their subsequent roles have varied tremendously but almost always involve dispensing water. This 1956 example has been used on a farm and it remains in good condition, and has ladders and copious amounts of hosepipe. It is said to be running and driving well.

An ideal way into owning a useful classic commercial, and one with room for plenty of people too.

£5, 000 - 8, 000
To be sold without reserve
