For sale: 1978 Customized Bedford CF V8 - New Zealand

Wow! This is one of the more impressive customized CF's I have seen! The guy has done tons of small body mods to make this look as smooth as possible. Starting from the top, the rain gutters have been removed and the roof is smoothly intergrated with the rest of the body.
At the back, the doors have been eliminated as well as the bumperettes. The license plate, third brake light and modern brake lights have been frenched in.
On the sides, the window recesses have been smoothed out, diagonal port-hole windows added, the door handles removed, side door hinges removed, a fuel door and small aerodynamic mirrors added.
Up front the grille has been modified and a 1-piece bumper-deflector added.
All these modifications and the silver metallic paint make this CF look modern and sleek. The torq thrust style wheels in what looks to be 17" add the final touch. Mentioning the wheels I also notice custom disk brakes up front. The wheel PCD is different, so the diff has been probably swapped as well. A Chevy V8 with automatic gearbox powers this van.
The owner hasn't forgot about the interior either. Custom silver and black upholstery to match the exterior. Custom dashboard, chrome steering column with selector, steering wheel and I'm sure much more I can't see in the photos have been done.
A build like this can take several years and you can spend a lot of money or you can buy this one! Why is the owner even selling it?

"This custom and unique 1978 Bedford CF van is being sold by Turners Penrose
Purchased 15 years ago by the current owner, this Bedford was lovingly restored to its current glory.

With a V8 Chevy Engine and custom interior it also boasts handle-less entry at all points. Entry is gained by the 1 x key remote.

Owners are regretfully selling in favour of a family home and would like to see this Bedford go to someone that can spend the little extra money and time to get her fully back to where she deserves to be.

No inspection report has been completed however the vendor has advised there is an issue with the radiator which would need to be attended to."
