Opel Bedford Blitz Camper - Retro Classics Stuttgart

I spotted a photo of this Opel Bedford Blitz online a couple of years ago. I don't know much about it but as you can see in these new photos it's one of the most clean campers you can probably find in Germany. These were taken in March at the Retro Classics show in Stuttgart.
What makes this Blitz very unique and stand out from the crowd is a fake wood grain panel with chrome molding, that contrasts with the shinny white paint. The chrome hub caps (looks like Opel Rekord C) and white wall tires give it a nice classic look. I don't know much about that style of poptop, probably a Hymer conversion, but the stickers on it gives some oldschool character.

For sale: 1972 Custom Bedford V8 - South Africa

You don't see many Bedford vans in pink... With the purple stripe, it really looks like a color pallet from the 90's. This one is for sale in South Africa and it's been customized like almost all the CF's I have seen from there. Large vertical windows, running boards, mag wheels, etc and of course, a big Chevy V8 engine.

Vendo: 1986 Bedford Combi L - Italy

The "Combi L" was the 9 passenger Bedford in the Italian market. This one has been dressed up a bit with some period correct stripes, Hella fog lights, plaid curtains and some BWA aluminum rims that you can only find in Italy. 1986 is one of the last model years and it looks to be in really good condition and well maintained all these years. Only 15,000 kms? It's even got covers on all the seats. This is probably one of the cleanest and original CF's you can buy in Italy right now.

"Bedford cf 250 anno 1986 gasolio cilindrata 2300 cc. Unico proprietario percorsi solo 15697 km. Funzionante, allestimento pulmino, trasporto promiscuo persone/cose, posti totali n.9 Sempre custodito in garage. Cerchi in lega Bwa. Impianto audio Blaupunkt. Da vedere, conservato in modo impeccabile."

€ 8,500.-
Modena, Italy
