Star Music Bedford CF


Descobri esta cassete do Hermenegildo Soares aka "Star Music", um músico pimba ao estilo Quim Barreiros mas menos conhecido. Parece que é de 1991 e utilizou uma foto da sua Bedford CF para a capa. Na sua longa discografia ainda tem uma outra cassete com uma CF na capa. O que será feito dessa CF?

ebay: Bedford CF Radical V8 Custom Van project

This is the custom Irish CF formerly known as the Saracen Warrior. I blogged about it a few years ago when it was for sale. The current owner was in the process of rebuilding it. I was following the build on the Rods n' Sods forum. Well now it's up for sale on ebay. It's still a work in progress but a lot has been done to it already. It seems that the owner just doesn't have time to finish the project.








"Radical V8 Bedford CF custom van project for sale. Rover V8, electric/power everything, roof, windows, ariel, seats, steering, linear rams to operate both front and rear doors, (which also work by remote key-fob), 'Real Steel' built Rover V8 with auto box, cruisin ratio Buick rear axle, (good mpg), loads of custom tricks done to it, will make a show winner when finished. To be honest, I don't need the space or the money, I just haven't got the time to work on it at the moment and I don't want to see it stood, although I will rather than give it away so no silly offers. I live between Rotherham/Doncaster, just off the M18, and would suggest viewing the van to see what exactly has gone into to it. It needs paint, although it is in primer since the pics were taken, it needs a small amount of welding to the 'zoomie' exhaust system, and some work to finish off the interior, it won't be done in a couple of weeks, but could be finished and ready for next season. It will make a cracking show van with a bit of dedication and work... I'd like £5,500 ovno for it, I might swap it for something interesting and on the road. If genuinely interested then get in touch, I'll do all I can to explain the van in detail before viewing.
Open to swaps, wot yer got???"

Vende-se: Bedford CF230 de 1982 em Loures


Lembro-me de ter visto um par de fotos desta CF há uns anos atrás. Achei interessante porque nas fotos a CF andava a escavar no meio da lama e também porque tinha varias modificações, nomeadamente uns pneus grandes. Nunca mais vi nada sobre esta CF até hoje.
Visto agora com mais promenor, vê-se que a pintura mate é não é grande coisa. Não sei se foi pintado a lata de spray com com pincel, não esconde as várias mazelas da chapa, mas pode ter sido essa a intenção - o estilo "ratrod". As jantes parecem ser de 15" com pneus todo terreno. Seguindo o estilo todo terreno, tem parachoques tubulares a frente e atrás, uma escada e uma grade para o tejadilho (que não está nas fotos).
Este é um modelo misto de 7 lugares e os bancos foram trocados e o interior todo forrado a alcatifa.








Preço: 3.500 €
Localidade: Loures

"Muito boa de mecanica, com a carrinha vai vario material suplente , incluido outra carrinha para peças e grade para tejadilho"

ebay: Custom Bedford Blitz V6 - Germany


Unfortunately it looks like this custom CF has no plates and is being sold off on ebay for parts. It has tons of body mods done to it but it really has seen better days. It's got a Ford V6 swapped in but who knows if that's even working? The starting bid is only 100€ and there are a few parts that are still worth saving here. Local pickup in Walldorf, Germany.

For sale: 1978 Customized Bedford CF V8 - New Zealand


Wow! This is one of the more impressive customized CF's I have seen! The guy has done tons of small body mods to make this look as smooth as possible. Starting from the top, the rain gutters have been removed and the roof is smoothly intergrated with the rest of the body.
At the back, the doors have been eliminated as well as the bumperettes. The license plate, third brake light and modern brake lights have been frenched in.
On the sides, the window recesses have been smoothed out, diagonal port-hole windows added, the door handles removed, side door hinges removed, a fuel door and small aerodynamic mirrors added.
Up front the grille has been modified and a 1-piece bumper-deflector added.
All these modifications and the silver metallic paint make this CF look modern and sleek. The torq thrust style wheels in what looks to be 17" add the final touch. Mentioning the wheels I also notice custom disk brakes up front. The wheel PCD is different, so the diff has been probably swapped as well. A Chevy V8 with automatic gearbox powers this van.
The owner hasn't forgot about the interior either. Custom silver and black upholstery to match the exterior. Custom dashboard, chrome steering column with selector, steering wheel and I'm sure much more I can't see in the photos have been done.
A build like this can take several years and you can spend a lot of money or you can buy this one! Why is the owner even selling it?















"This custom and unique 1978 Bedford CF van is being sold by Turners Penrose
Purchased 15 years ago by the current owner, this Bedford was lovingly restored to its current glory.

With a V8 Chevy Engine and custom interior it also boasts handle-less entry at all points. Entry is gained by the 1 x key remote.

Owners are regretfully selling in favour of a family home and would like to see this Bedford go to someone that can spend the little extra money and time to get her fully back to where she deserves to be.

No inspection report has been completed however the vendor has advised there is an issue with the radiator which would need to be attended to."
