For Sale: 1979 Canterbury Freedom CF

I don't usually post campers here but this Canterbury Freedom CF is a rare and unusual conversion. 
Besides the bull-bar and graphics, what stands out right away is the high-top roof. It has a very strange shape that looks to have the aerodynamics of a brick... Usually, on a short wheel base CF, a pop-top would be used for a camper or the body would be replaced for a bigger motor home style camper. That makes these high-top campers a strange mutant solution.
Anyway, I don't know enough about these conversions to really describe them, so I will leave you the photos and the sellers description.

"Bedford CF Canterbury
Freedom Motorhome
2279cc Petrol. 4 birth. Tow bar.
Ladder and roof rack. Bull bars.
Spares or repair.
NO Brakes!!!
But does have handbrake. It will need to be trailered away.
This motorhome starts and drives. It has NO MOT!!!
It has a double bed above the cab and the table converts into another double bed. It has a hob and grill, fridge and boiler. It has a toilet / shower room and a wardrobe.
The bodywork could do with a bit of attention. The worst of it is the rear wheel arches, they have been tidied up on the bottom corners but really could do with a better job been done. Also some rust above the front doors. But the overall look of the van is good. The underneath looks good with no visible signs of rot. So I think there will be no welding required for its MOT.
One of the rear windows has been smashed recently. I have cleaned all the glass up. It is the same as the other side so that one can be used as a template. It is a flat so perspex can be used if a replacement can not be found.
The inside also could do with some TLC.
The hob and grill works. I have fired up the boiler but not checked if it works properly. I do not know if the fridge works.
The 12v lights inside work ok. All the outside lights work ie, head lamps, side lights, indicators, brake lights. Wipers, washers and horn work ok.

I live 1 mile from J4 M5 South Birmingham. Anyone is welcome to view. Please email, text or call 07974375586 for any questions. Cash on collection only."
