I have owned the can for many years, and being a restorer and dealer, I have always tried to keep it in very good condition, mostly the body, as most that I have seen and owned over the years have had major rust issues.

I will start with the body, it has been back to bare metal in most of the important areas on several occasions over the past 14 years, any rust has been removed, new steel welded in and rust proofed from behind, KO66 has just again been sprayed into all the box sections and behind the most recent welding.

All window seals were re-done 2 years ago, but some were not fitted well and rust started again, so welding has been completed yet again, and I decided to re-fit the seals with the best sealant I could find.

Paint is only 12 months old, but I have photos from over the past few years, the new top coat was the result of badly fitted window rubbers. I have kept the body standard other than mild custom work, like the removal of badges, custom bars ect, with the idea as a collectors car, it can easily be returned to standard. The flames are in custom made pearl, and have an underlay which I doubt you will see in the photos, which is snake skin design, very unique, I kept the colour of the main body original.

I believe it will be one of the best bodied Bedford’s left on the road, now for the rest;

I have the original 173 motor with still ran well, but opted to fit an ex race engine to gain power and top end, it is a 186 bottom end, ported head, big cam, roller rockers, running a 350 Holley (it needs bigger) The Dual fuel system was fitted around 7 years ago, and I have modified a custom gas hat to suit, I fitted a custom made hi-stall convertor, and the transmission has recently been replaced, it has extractors and a sports exhaust, custom in take system so it is reliable, sounds great, and has plenty of power over the original drive line.

Brake upgrade is engineered stub axles, HZ V8 callipers and disks, and original rebuilt Bedford rear brakes, machined to be matching HQ stud pattern, capable of accepting V8 conversion.

Sound system, floors were stripped, body tarred, so were all inner seals, top of the range sound deadener fitted, new carpets, MP4 Din 3 deck, supports Bluetooth, DVD, ect, deck runs 4 speakers, hidden in the custom dash and under the power seats, powered pre-out runs custom amp powering 2 x 6/9’s and two roof mounted 6 inchs, big amp powers 2 x hidden boxed Clarion subs, second battery powers twin amps which run two pro series clarion subs, sound system is set up for clarity and all amps are limited to protect the system. Roof mounted drop down Screen is included but not fitted, also included reverse cameras and separate 7 inch screen.

The Van seats 4, fronts are SAAB black leather power and heated seats, rears are commodore with seat belts, I have another mid seat to make it a 5 seater, but it has seat belts to make it a 7 seater, currently has raised bed in the rear, and external side windows open as per a campervans, rear bumper is a step up in steal, front is custom rolled alloy.

All suspension bushes were replaced around 40,000 klms ago, car drives very well, sounds excellent and gets attention where ever it goes, as such is a great daily driver as I have been using it, or a weekend toy, and will be an excellent long term investment for any collector.

Contact me with any questions, and I should have a range of photos from over the past decade that will all go to prove the condition has always been excellent.

Spare include; original motor, original front brakes, two spare original read barn doors, other spare body panels, a rare set of period allows to suit the original stud pattern, 3 seater fold down rear seat, original trans, some electrical spares including drop down roof mounted DVD, reverse cameras I have collected as well."
