I have been following this chaps mega build.
He started of with a green goddess fire engine with plans to make it in to a car transporter.
3 years latter and 80 pages he is now rebuilding it, but the quality of his work is very good.

In bits, top cover to go back on and front axle then to paint it.

Remember seeing about half a dozen of the Green Goddesses in Ritchie's scrap yard at Coldhams Lane, Cambridge in the 1970's and 80's.

When the old man Ritchie died, there was a 'closed' sale somewhere for all the old vintage stuff he had squirreled away in barns on his site. Ancient Rolls Royce, amongst other gems.

Never had a Green Goddess but I did have an Ex-AFS Bedford RL (same as a Green Goddess but with a dropside body rather than the fire engine body) for carrying the lengths of hose for the Green Goddesses.
6 cyl Bedford petrol engine, purred like a kitten.
