Bedford CF MK 1. 1979.

Rover V8.
Auto gearbox.
Uprated rear axle.
Uprated braking system.
Full custom interior.
Colour BMW Ibershott.

I built this van over the winter of 1983/84.

the first show it attended was Truckfest at Peterborough Easter weekend 1984.

It was on the show circuit from 1984 - to about 1992.

It was used occasionally after this for trips around Europe, but spent a lot of time in storage.

Other vehicle projects came along over the years and the van was stored away until last Friday, when we got her out to put back her back on the road for her 30th anniversary this year.

Getting the van out of storage.

She was stored away in the early 1990`s.

I did get her out now and again, but not really for the last ten years.

Amazingly she started up after a battery was connected and the electric fuel pump tapped into working.

Once in the workshop the carburettors were removed and thoroughly cleaned.
Oil and filter changed.
Tank drained and fresh petrol put in.

The wheels were removed and the brakes cleaned and adjusted.

She runs a treat now. Ready for the new show season.
