For sale: 1970 Custom Bedford V8 "Passion Wagon" - South Africa

Here is another custom Bedford for sale in South Africa. This ones baptized the "Passion Wagon" and sports a American red, white and blue paint job. It looks like it might be an older customization. Air horn on the roof and a Venturi vent but strangely placed up front instead of at the rear. Something else that's strange is a sort of a vent on the side. I never seen that before. It's also got a port windows, chrome side pipes, chrome uuniversal mirrors, molded-in fender flares and Suzuki Viatara alloy wheels.
Power comes from a Ford 302 V8 with an automatic gearbox.

Ebay: 1986 Bedford CF2 Scouts Minibus - UK

Here is a CF2 that caught my attention on ebay UK. This one was a Scouts minibus, so it's got windows all around, however those bus style slide windows are really ugly. The best thing about this is that it has low mileage and it's in pretty good condition (except the rust on the front fenders).

"Bedford CF Minibus. Owned from new by local scout group. Only covered 55k. Originally Minibus, however, rear seats removed. Rear windows and side door. 5 speed dog leg gearbox. roof rack included. Only covered 1500 in last 10 years and used to deliver flowers one/two days each year. always MOT'd each year. Old MOT's available. Original service/handbook. Van is in very good condition for it's year and totally original inside. Front wings let the vehicle down, however, it is 30 years old so don't expect the van to be like new. Reason for sale is Scout group being disbanded and storage for vehicle is no longer available. Please call only to discuss the vehicle as emails will be ignored."

Ebay: Bedford CF1 Camper - UK

This CF1 Camper is up on ebay UK right now. It's not oin the best of conditions but those slot mags really make it pop. It's amazing what some wheels can do. If you look closely you will have also noticed that they were re-drilled. Finding original aftermarket wheels for the CF is really difficult so some people resort to re-drilling which kind of ruins the look with all of those extra holes on there... The other good thing about this CF is that it has an overdrive! Check out the sellers description and start bidding, only £0.99!

Blitoneta - Spain

I still haven't figured out why Bedford's weren't sold in Spain. You just don't see any over there. Pablo some how managed to get his hands on this 1984 280D and he's modified it fully over the years. He calls it the "Blitoneta". He has swapped out the engine for a 2.8 TDI, made custom wide tubular rims, converted to disk brakes and much more. Check the photos:
