Bedford dos Mártires em Silves

Esta Bedford CF foi avistado em Silves e pertence (ou pertenceu) a Agencia Funéraria dos Mártires. Está com um aspecto um pouco abandonado.
A carroçaria tem alguns promenores curiosos, como a alteração dos vidros nas portas da frente e os farois da frente e trás da Mercedes.

Vende-se: Bedford CF "Dead Surfer"

O "Dead Surfer" está de novo à venda. O dono actual comprou-a em Maio e trocou o transporte de caixões por uma prancha de surf. Não sei a razão porque está a vende-la apenas uns meses depois de a comprar. Aparentemente está em bom estado com apenas 77,000 kms.
A curiosidade desta ex-funéraia é que no livrete está registada com 8 lugares...
O preço é de 3,000€

ebay: Custom V8 CF - UK

Here is an interesting 1980 Custom CF. If you look at it from the front or sides there is hardly any custom work done. You have to go to the rear to see some heavy customization. The rear doors have been removed and the hole rear has been smoothed. The license plate was embedded it the middle and the tail lights have also been "frenched" but they look to have a glass/plastic enclosure which is unique. I'm not a fan of that trapezoid  window but it sort of matches the parallelogram side windows.
This van also includes a very rare option for a CF - the sliding rear door.
The owner of this van wanted everyone to know that it this CF had a V8 so he put a stripe with a giant V8 on it... That would have to go, the sticker not the Rover V8 engine.
The paint looks good but it does have a couple of nasty cracks in the roof which makes you wonder about whats under the bondo... Overall the van seems in ok shape but I would count with a new paint job and some rust repair in the near future.
There's no photos of the inside but the seller mentions "Ford Scorpio electric front seats fitted and black carpeted interior". The starting bid is at £2,500.00 with a reserve price.

ebay: 1984 Bedford CF2 Camper - UK

This 1984 Bedford CF2 is up on auction right now. It has the 2.3 diesel engine and being a CF2 it has the 5 speed gear box and disk brakes.
It was converted into a camper with all the necessary camping equipment with the table and bed in the rear. The front seats have been switched and it has a custom dashboard with plenty of gauges. 
The high roof looks like it is custom piece. If it wasn't for that you probably wouldn't know its a camper inside. The white steel wheels are nice and the blue paint looks great. The rear plastic bumpers were shaved off and the license plate has been embedded into the door for a smooth custom look. Its just missing the chrome mirrors.

ebay: Bedford CF Retro Camper

This 1980 CF Camper really stands out with its canary yellow paint / white top and wheels. The tinted windows finish off the job on the outside. Inside it has the usual camper equipment and some racing seats up front but you wont be racing in this van as it has the stock petrol engine (1.8 or 2.0 ?).
Lots of bidders showing interest on this one, it's ending very soon so go and bid - item 170867422404
Located in St. Austell, Cornwall, UK

Sellers description:
"Please bid on my pride and joy. Ive owned an enjoyed this camper for five years. She is a retro camper so she has her quirks and squeaks!
She was restored 7 years ago (Photos of rebuild) having over £4000 spent for which i have all the bills!
Although going straight through her MOT last year she is in need of some TLC mainly on the paint work but its only some surface rust. There is no rust underneath.
She has a pop up roof with bunks, double bed, cooker, grill, CD player built in speakers, sink, fridge (not working), table, interior lights and loads of storage."
