ebay: Electric Bedford CF2 Barn Find

At first glance the paint job on this Bedford CF2 seems to be very A-Team inspired, but after reading that this van belonged to the British Airways fleet I did some googling and the color scheme and red stripe are correct with how they painted there airplanes at that era. That also explains the rotating beacon on the roof. Bedford built several hundred electric CF's and a few of them were used in airports. Those vans were used only for a hand full of years and they clocked very few miles. This one has only 22,000 miles and is in really great shape. It's very rare to see one of these let alone in this condition, a real barn find!
It does have some small rust issues you can see in the photo, the typical rust around the rear arches.
The interior seating arrangement is strange - a backwards facing rear bench and a folding side bench, with only one window on the side door... Since it was only used to transport workers and tools from the hanger to the tarmac, there was no need for comfort.
Bidding started at £1,000 and is climbing at a fast rate, this one should sell for a high price.
