This unique example of a Bedford ML 3 ton industrial works fire brigade fire engine was ordered by Rover in 1939 from Vauxhall Motors and delivered in early 1940, initially to a subsidiary Rover works at Acocks Green. Subsequently it was transferred for fire protection duty at the Rover Company’s main factory at Solihull.

I am restoring a 1961 Foden 6G6/22, it was a 6wheel flat bed, we are going to make it into a tipper. Like we had in the day. I will be looking for plenty of parts as I get more into it, but for starters I need a Pr of tipping rams, and chassis brackets, outside of chassis type. Also any photos would be a big help.
