ebay: 2 Electric CF's - UK

Not too long ago I was posting about the Electric CF and now two of them pop up for sale on ebay! The seller says that there were former airport vans, so they have very little mileage but as you can see in the photos, they have some dents and a few rust spots. These CF's are certainly worthy of being restored since they are so rare. One of them has the original lead battery pack. It would be interesting to upgrade to Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries, since the new technology is more reliable, lighter weight, more range, faster to recharge and the prices have dropped a lot in the last couple of years.
The bids are starting very low, only 1 more day until the auction ends!

"STRICTLY FOR SPARES OR REPAIR. Here we have a pair of electric powered Bedford CF2 vans, short wheel base, with no side loading doors. Only one retains it's battery pack, and I suspect they might be best suited to conversion with normal engines and transmission.
A "fetching" shade of GPO yellow, they have completed minimal mileage in their previous career at an airport, and although scruffy, are remarkably solid, with minimal corrosion, and very restorable.
The photo's show them unwashed, without even a brush out, I can take others if required."

Hercules Power CV

Encontrei estas fotos no Penso que ainda não tinha visto esta Bedford, embora já há por ai algumas muito parecidas que foram buscar inspiração na GMC da A-Team (emblema GMC na grelha). O dono desta também pintou as letras brancas nos pneus que ficam bem na jante de ferro preta.

Island Style - I can make you're Bedrock

"This custom airbrushed 1978 Bedford Cruise O Van - elegantly titled 'Island Style', is definately proving itself as a one-of-a-kind custom automotive paint and airbrushing masterpeice. The beach and island themes on both the sides of this beautiful Van will take anyone back to the surfing days of the seventies. Two types of painting styles were incorporated into the project, photorealism and surrealism. Making sure that the overall piece appeals to the masses. Only the best urathane based paint was used for this project, ensuring that the high quality airbrushed art will last for the next 38 years, and remains a show stopper at every show."
