Slow Power, Take it Easy

Já lá vão 3 anos desde que esta Bedford foi vista no Porto. Alguem no forum.autohoje.com voltou a apanha-la, não sei bem onde desta vez.
Agora aparece com um papel colado no vidro que diz: "Slow Power, Take it Easy"...

Vende-se: Autocaravana CF230 para peças

Esta autocaravana Bedford CF230 de 1977 está à venda para peças... apesar de parecer estar em bom estado. A razão não está no anuncio, mas podemos ver numa foto a matricula francesa... A legalização é muito caro e não compensa, resta apenas vende-la para peças. Isto pode ser uma boa oportunidade para quem tem uma CF em mau estado, usar esta para converter em autocaravana.
O vendedor está a pedir € 1.250,00

Ebay: 1978 Bedford CF Motorhome - UK

This old Bedford CF motorhome is up on ebay UK. The hand painted art work stands out on a dark blue camper. You don't see many motorhomes like this one. Go and bid, it's ending real soon.


The van is currently declared SORN, MOT & TAX expired. The AA have looked her over and apart from a bit of a flat battery from not being driven she is sound. The AA charged battery and she started and drove fine, this was several weeks ago so may need a bit of help starting. The van had extensive work last year, over 2k spent, and is in much better nick than when we bought her, but she is old, 1978, so will always need a bit of love. 

Perfect festival van or a shop project. LEZ compliant.
I'm sadly having to sell my lovely Bedford CF motorhome, so this is your chance to get your hands on a great van! Bought the van just over a year ago with the intention of turning her into a shop, which I did with a friend, due to my friend having to pull out of the venture I now need to sell. 
The interior of the van has been altered so we could crete a shop, but as you can see from the pictures, you could still easily use her as a camper. There is a bed above the cab with a new foam mattress and the rear seats convert into another double bed, although the table that drops down to form the centre of the bed has been cut down and mirrored, so you would need a square of Ply/mdf to fit the space. All the cushions are there and fine for sleeping on!
There is no toilet, but it was foul anyway and site loos are much nicer! There is still a sink and drainer underneath one counter, the plumbing is all in place, just add water from a jerry can. There is a wood panel on one side of the sink unit that looks like it had two ring hob at one time, but we bought it panelled over, but could probably be resurrected.
We replaced various sections of floor and have made the interior space structurally sound.

The outside is hand painted, but not finished, I'll leave that up to the new owner to play with..There is a channel for an awning.
There is also a line of rust/rough edge across the front of the bonnet lip, which was there when we bought the van, and we haven't got round to fixing, just needs a new edge welding across.

New leisure battery. 

This is a fabulous van, great to drive and unique to look at, please contact me with any questions or if you want to come and have a look."

3º Encontro Carros Americanos 2014 - Algarve

Estava a ver fotos do 3º encontro de carros americanos no Algarve - facebook.com/americancars.algarve - e eis que apareceu lá a Bedford CF do Helder Automaisbaratos! Apesar de a Bedford não ser propriamente uma marca americana (nem sequer foi vendida lá), fazia parte da General Motors e sendo uma replica da icónica GMC "A-Team" fazia sentido estar lá.

Acabou até por levar para casa o troféu de "Carro com mais km percorridos".

Rolls Royce CF Camper III

Esta Rolls Royce CF continua a circular por ai, desta vez foi apanhada na Costa da Caparica. Tem aspecto de estar bem tratada e apenas sair no verão para umas voltas.
