ebay: 1981 Cavalier Coachman CF Camper - UK

Here is a rare 1981 Cavalier Coachman conversion van, the "Stratus High Top" model to be exact. If you were looking for a original one, unfortunately this one has been painted black... but all CF's in black seem to look cool. This is a great camper with a £1,350 starting bid on ebay.

"Bedford CF1 Facelift. Rare Cavalier Coachman conversion with a high top.
1981, 2.3l petrol, 4 speed manual transmission. 2 berth
I've had this van about 4 years and had a fair bit of fun with it, but work and a wife means it's time for this to go. In the time I've had it, I've had the bodywork repaired and had it resprayed (£2000), it has been reupholstered (£1200), I've put a new petrol tank and filler hose on (£70), I've redone the electrics on the leisure side, with a new control unit, plenty of 12v outlets and a split charging system. It has a two way fridge (12v when the engine is running and gas), 2 ring gas hob and grill. All gas piping was renewed by the previous owner by a corgi fitter. Also had a full set of brake cylinders fitted in late 2014
It has recently had a new starter battery, starter motor, fuel pump and idle valve solenoid, and now runs better than it did when I was using it.
All that I can see wrong is that it is tired due to being 35 years old, the reversing lights don't work (I haven't been able to source a switch) and one of the rear number plate illumination lights doesn't work. There was an issue with the rear light clusters, but a bit of tinkering fixed that.
As mentioned, it has no MOT, but I believe it will not take much to get it through. I could MOT it myself, but, a, I'm too lazy and b, I'd have to up the price."

Location: Middlesbrough, United Kingdom

Starting bid: £1,350.00

Vends: 1975 Bedford CF A-Team - France

Here is another A-Team styled Bedford for sale, this time in France. This one seems to be an older customization, maybe form the 80's, and it's seen better days. I particularly like the red interior with the custom dashboard. It seems to be in fair shape and the seller say's it has no rust but it really needs a complete makeover. The price is really good too, since it already has all of the hard to find parts - fiberglass flares, sun-visor, Weller wheels and so on.

Prix : 800 €

Code postal : 54000
Année-modèle : 1975
Carburant : Diesel

For Swap: Bedford CF A-Team project - UK

This Bedford CF is available for trade for a classic car or motorcycle. As you can see in the photos it's got a A-Team inspired them going on but it's still in project phase (or "rat look" as the owner calls it) so you could build it up as you like. Some positives is it already has the fender flares and wide wheels.Check the details below.

Swap Value: £2.000+
Description: Easy project. Starts and drive. Rat look A-Team. Needs very little to finish. Got most part including side window. Front grill and bumper missin
I want to swap for - Classic cars or motorcycle only

Ebay: Bedford CF2 Custom V8 - UK

This is a very particular 1984 Bedford CF2. It's a long wheel base but looking at the photo it doesn't have the high top... This type of configuration was never offered so you know some custom work is going on here but besides that detail there's not that much other exterior mods. I can only see rear fender flares, the frenched-in rear license plate and of course the custom paint job.
The power plant was of course swapped for the typical Rover 3.5L V8 with auto transmission and Jaguar rear axle with some wide tires on deep offset chrome rims.
The seller says the van has been off the road for 30 years and just got a new MOT.
Inside it's completely empty, so you can customize it the way you want. The bids are going strong but there is a reserve price.

Ebay: 1980 Bedford CF 230 - UK

Here's one for those hot-rod fans. Mat black paint, red steel wheels, white walls and zoomies!
This CF230 is one of the last CF1's from 1980 as you can see it already has the new style dash board. The owner got a little creative in the interior using some old denim jeans... The rear has some nice camper style seats/bed conversion and it also seems to have a good audio system. The starting bid is low so this might turn out a good deal for someone.

"BEDFORD CF 230 1.8 VAN , a classic van first registered in 1980, mot'd till august 2016, taxed till april 2016, colour is a matt black finish, van starts and drives well, used daily, would be a good project for someone. has had various new parts since ive had her, new starter motor, alternator, clutch cable, front upper ball joints, timing belt, wheel cylinders, also has a new battery.  bottom of pass
enger door corroded but otherwise solid. has a few dents and scratchs but not bad considering age. cash on collection, feel free to ask me any questions or to arrange to view her."

Ebay: 1987 Bedford CF2 - UK

Start the new year with a CF2. This is a last year built CF so the body should be in reasonable shape but it does have some rust spots you can see in the photos. Double sliding front doors is a rare option for a cargo van. This Bedford has got a lot of potential.

"Bedford cf2 van starts And drives with sliding doors both side ideal easy winter Project original Van needs little welding and TLC for MOT"
