Ebay: 1986 Bedford CF2 - UK

This CF2 has received a "rat" treatment, matt black paint to cover up some dents and rust spots. A few more details include small chrome mirrors, double side exhaust, removal of the rear bumpers and some rope tied around the front bumper in jeep style. You can't forget to sticker bomb the rear windows.
The owner put in a new engine and the body is still very decent for a full restoration if that's your intention, otherwise you can keep it as a rat rod or go crazy and customize it.

Australia Post Bedford CF

The Sydney Bus Museum was just cleaning up their 1976 Bedford CF that was donated to them by the Australian Post. There are some curious details on this van, first it's has double front sliding doors, which is a rare setup but practical to deliver mail. Being a cargo van it's strange that they put windows all the way around. The rear 1/4 bumpers were replaced with a large custom bumper but the front remains stock. The rectangular mirrors are also very odd. And finally it has a "Powered by Holden" badge that was particular to the Australian market.

Mile-Ometor showing just 3K, maybe a speedo change at some stage ? Two spare wheels, new battery. Very very clean cabin. As you can see from my photo's this is a very genuine solid van, just a little rust on the off side rear wheel arch. This vehicle is a pleasure to drive, starting first time every time, the motor is exceptionally quite. Very usable and collectable,"
