Hey Johno, mate time for me to get help, this beddy thing is out of control. If you want to see custom vans, take a look at miami vice, they use a few custom vans for UC work, plus all the customs you see in the background of shots.

Post Wed, the first pic is of this van in it's prime, a few years later in pic 2 and the last pic was recorded 2 years later again, so must be the result of a rebuild, but not sure.............
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Bedfordcrazy on March 16, 2011, 08:32:32 AM
Awesome, i think from memory the carving on the back was done using plaster and fibreglass.

Post by: Bas NZ on March 16, 2011, 08:38:11 AM
Yes George, I have received the same information from a friend in the UK, but can't confirm this for sure, but the process would work for sure, might try it on the Black Beddie. ;) I have always liked the flow of this van, even the cab side windows are curved and not straight like most.

classic, looks a bit funny with no wheel at the front - could mid mount the heater ;)

Post by: Bedfordcrazy on March 17, 2011, 09:55:34 AM
Amazing, the mighty beddy even looks good as a trailer. Just imagine what you could do inside one of them as a trailer.

As for the van with the cast on the back, if you did it Bas, you could do a big KIWI bird, or do the big bedford logo, now that would look good .

Just a recap for George today, this van was rebuilt in 1990 to 1993, the back was done in full fibreglass, back to Bedford vans tomorrow........ ;) For those that want the full size photo for closer inspection, I will put them in my Gallery tonight............

Sunday Post....... nice doors, many vans in the UK have this setup
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Bedfordcrazy on March 20, 2011, 12:15:43 PM
Awesome Bas, my ex sheetmetal guy suggested the lambo doors for my van at one stage, yes they look good but on a beddy, mmmm dose'nt appear to be to much room to get in and out, compared to other cars fitted. I can say i canned the idea, at $1,500 a door, depending on supplier. In my case they would be for show only, i would never use my drivers door.
Have to say, i love the daily post, awesome newspaper.  ;) ;D ;D ;D :o ::)

Hey Bas, now you have out done yourself, yep i love beddy's, but i go nutso for a 4x4 beddy, the more the better. My next project is a 4x4, and i have already designed it, all i have to do now is design the funding,  ;D slightly harder.  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: hotrod on March 24, 2011, 11:03:29 AM
without trying to take the wind out of your sail are they 4x4 or are they done that stupid english gasser style they are so fond of.
Tried to lighten under the front  to see if there is a diff but the programmes here at work are not that good, will check again at home
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Bas NZ on March 24, 2011, 11:54:54 AM
Hotrod, you may be right there, I haven't had that closer look, but I'm sure there must be one amonst them, It was more about the Beddie sitting high and the look it gives it just re-enforces just how good they look if converted to a 4x4 ;)
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Bedfordcrazy on March 24, 2011, 12:54:07 PM
Hey Hotrod, i enhanced it some more and it looks like a diff, having said that, i still would not swear to it on a beddy workshop manual. The angle just leaves room for doubt. Still looks awesome though. There was a guy at noosa, and he did up a caddy 4x4, and an jag 4x4, the pics were in the newspaper, see if i can find it and give you a looksy.  You are right bas, the look of a 4x4 beddy mmmmmm its just a pity they never went into production.

I agree Bas, it looks like the swb roof has been cut even more to lower it. The doors still look original height. I love that grill, nice and neat.

george.
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Bas NZ on March 30, 2011, 11:00:36 AM
I am thinking more of a 2"- 4" chop in the front ???
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: BusyKiwi on March 30, 2011, 06:14:37 PM
I think it's original, the side glass is the main reason. I think it's the spoiler and side skirts that brings the top into proportion

notice no side door hinges
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: BusyKiwi on March 30, 2011, 06:17:55 PM
Bas I think there should be a 3 picture minimum on your daily posts :D

Only difference between mk1 and 2 is the square front guards and bonnet so it still has the bedford lines.
I've always preferred the mk1, the rounded front guards just do it for me
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Bedfordcrazy on August 01, 2011, 07:51:31 AM
I love the CF with it's all rounded body, no square or sharp edges. I offen wonder what a 2011 beddy would look like if they decided to bring it back as they did with the transit. I guess if the transit & monaro are any examples, beddy would look like crap. If i was asked to design the new beddy, i would maintain the cf body, but would fit it with all the latest technology, but i would do a 4x4 option, and a dual cab ute. Oh well, dream on.  :o :o ;D ;D :)

Nice van Baz, i like that last van, not sure i would do it but still cool, I like what they did with that rear end, incorporating the spare. I wonder how much is steel and how much is fibreglass. Is this an older van, 70s or a recent build,

All in fibreglass George, I have a mate there, he built his van all in steel, 4 years later the rust was back, rebuilt it again in fibreglass, 10 years later no sign of the rust.
All the rust work on my camper has been done in steel, but will do the repair work (rust) on the Black Beddie in fibreglass, as I only want to do it once. Photo of this van was taken at a 2002 meet if my information is right.

You dont see a full van mural these days, pity. These days it is cheaper to do a wrap rather then airbrushing. To do the paint job in a wrap, they can do it in a day. 1 day to print, 1 day to wrap, would take a couple of weeks to paint.

The problem is that there are too many maggots out there that think it's really funny to key someone's pride and joy. Either that or they just feel they are hard done by because they have never got off their lazy useless arses and created for themselves something that is truely unique.

I thought about a mural for mine but decided that it just wasn't worth the grief and expense when all it takes is a couple of seconds for some scumbag to ruin it all. Either that or I'd have to keep it locked in the garage for the rest of it's life just to keep it safe.

We used to call it a "two bob" and if I had $1 for every one done around here I could retire. If you have a flash paint job don't leave it parked around here.

Windows 7, as far as I know nothing has changed on the computer except not using it for 6 weeks while away, yes can open by clicking on it, opens in window viewer etc, but this would take for ever to see what I have aready loaded and not, should be able to  click on pictures under start and see them all, not just the symbol. :-\

I know what you're talking about Bas. See if either of these links below help. The second link mentions that if the 'Windows Photo Viewer' is not set as the default viewer for your image files then the thumbnails won't display the picture so have you installed any new graphics type applications recently that may have taken over your file associations?

Have a look through these links anyway because it's a lot quicker than me typing it out.

Thanks Rogue, being there done that, all is set up ok, will set photo's up in a 3rd party programe to view until I find out what went wrong, even did restore to 1 year ago. Any way left my external hard drive with all the photo's on, forgot when I was in Germany that I had done this, so did have them with me. Any way, Farther inlaw has posted it off, should have by Monday and start posting again

Garry I always thought, that where your stop light is in the rear of the roof, this area from side to side should be recessed to form a spoiler that is within the roof itself, I was, still am to make up a fibreglass recess, I think David may have done something like this?  Bas

Also anyone who has caught their shins on the bottom of the door will appreciate it as well.
A mate did the conversion because the bottom of his doors were rusted, but liked the lack of bruises on his legs.

this is the van but can't find any reference to arabian nights
cv&t just call it french bedford and Vans (customised vans in colour) show a close up of the face stating"the face of a french woman painted by Cordebar" and refer to the van later as "Moustache"
"a thirty year old with a french face,"
hope this helps

BTW love the paint scheme on the van above the face

Americans never had the pleasures of a CF.
It is probably an Opal Blitz in Europe.

1976 CF Bedford Van

Whilst the PMG, and later Australia Post, has generally standardised on the Ford Transit van for mail delivery since the late 1960s, this vehicle was part of a small batch of Bedford vans ordered during the mid-seventies. It sports the first version of the Australia Post logo, introduced in 1975 when Australia Post was established to replace the Postmaster forgot to add
General's Department (PMG). This van saw a relatively short service life, after which it was used by Australia Post as a promotional vehicle. It has 69,800 km recorded on the odometer, and remains in close to new condition.

This vehicle is one of the later batch of CF Bedford vans, which were fitted with Holden engines of either 173 or 202 cubic inch capacity.

The van was part of the Australia Post heritage collection, which was donated to the Sydney Bus Museum in 2005.

Engine: Holden 173 cubic inch (2850 cc) low-compression.
Transmission: Holden 3-speed Trimatic.

Have got the moulds for both........... ;) ;) well sunvisor is a little different, but the roof spoiler is the same, made the mould 30 years ago from a plug I made.

Here is the information I have.. Just did a bit of research, this is a interesting way to go....... This is the process from the van above he used.


First step was to sort out some bigger wheels to fit bigger brakes, now you simply can NOT buy bigger wheels for CF Bedfords any more, the stud pattern is essentially a pain in the ass & extremely hard to deal with.

Studs removed, hubs drilled to six stud on the same PCD, then adaptors used to convert to the typical Jap 4wd/commercial stud pattern.

Now that we had some room for bigger brakes (stock wheels were 14") we could go on the hunt for something that would work.

After a HUGE amount of time was wasted on people that simply didn't respond to emails or return ph calls etc (because it just got too hard for them) we purchased a set of brake rotors.

They are the 13" two piece units, this allowed me to design custom hats to suit the Bedford hubs & have these & the caliper mounts machined just around the corner.
Z32 300ZX TT front brake calipers were overhauled & painted then the whole lot was slapped on:

Murray (McQuoid Engineering) who does the HQ disc brake conversion is now working on another (bigger) kit. I think the HQ are 9 or 10" with single pot callipers but is making up a bigger set using commodore discs with twin pot callipers .
He's going to be using my old front of the van (my trailer van) to set up a display with the HQ and bigger set up and the power steering kit he has designed. I have photo of the power steering kit am just waiting on a price before i post anymore details

Hey george, any chance of getting a copy of that video (can you put it online) ?
Someone pointed that van out to me not long after I started my website about my custom van, have heard many rumours about that yellow van since, like its got airbags etc but it looks like he is using leaf springs and diff, I believe he is running the rover v8 which is a lot shorter than the chevy v8

George what file extension did the editing software save it as ? if is one of the formats I qouted above then you should be able to just upload it, but if it is in a video format then as atk1 says you will have to decript it and then convert it.

Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Rogue Trooper on September 11, 2012, 05:21:27 PM
If you've saved it on your DVD recorder and then have written it to a DVD then I highly doubt it is encrypted. It'll be saved as a VOB file which most media players worth their salt can play. Using your computer have a look at the DVD file structure. There will probably be a folder called VIDEO_TS on the DVD. Have a look in there and you should see a bunch of files and at least one of them should have the extension VOB on the end.

Look at the file sizes to the right hand side if you have 'detailed' view selected for your files and pick the largest one which should be the main video file. If you double-click on it, it will probably play in Windows Media Player so you can then confirm that it's the right one. Depending how large it is you could copy it somewhere one of us could grab and then it could be encoded to a different format and smaller file size.
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Bedfordcrazy on September 12, 2012, 09:33:38 AM
Hey Rogue, i had a look at it last night, it goes for about 2 half mins, not long. I have a pioneer dvd/hdd recorder that connects like a normal pvr to the tv, but the genuis of it is i can go into an editing window and cut out all the commercials and crap, so that you are left with just the footage you want. When i put the DVD+RW discs into my laptop and play all is good, so will try and look for vob, worse case i send a copy to shane or someone and you guys can sort it out.

it's actually blues on silver
copied the paint scheme from a ute (pickup) in a USA hot rod mag

was a nice van that, 350 chev, 9in diff, full custom interior.
I tried to find it before i started my current custom van, records show it was deregistered and someone told me it was rusted out in some back yard out south
There was another one similar paint (poor copy of it) not long after i sold this one, when i was young and cruised town I used to get a lot of people saying they had seen my old van but was the other one.

bas .. how have you got on with the a team sun visor ?

Yep sunvisor all preped and ready to lay, just waiting for the garage to empty, a mates car in in there, half in metal, should be shifted in a week.  Have the old sunvisor on a mates van, he says it makes a sound while driving, may need to change the air flow a little, as it was imported form the states from a Chev van, he will be up on the weekend so will test drive and see, may need to make a little change to the mould before I lay....... ???

ben
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: BusyKiwi on September 26, 2012, 07:19:45 AM
If it was converted it should of been joined further out. The old axle tubes are usually turned down and pressed into the head tube and welded.
from factory the tubes are plug and seam welded. without knowing the full story it looks like the factory weld broke at the bottom causing the case to split. thats a lot of pressure to do that though.
A diff under pressure usually goes out of alignment and snaps the axles at the spline

I love the stretch beddy, red one. BUT where he went wrong in my opinion is when he chopped up the front, me i would of given him 10 outa 10 if he had of kept the beddy front, bonnet so on. He could of done what we do here with mesh in the grill or a ford grill, but to totally destroy it, that is a crime against beddies. I give it 7 outa 10, because i love the interior, cab and back.

The stretch Beddy was certainly something different.....in a good way. The recording of Get Back was also something different.......in a really REALLY bad way..........you can always chop, shape and change a Beddy - but you just cannot attempt the same with a classic beatles song! my ears are still bleeding!

would still be able to open normally, either standard hinge which may limit it's lifting height or new hinges at the top which would allow a lot of room.
I'm doing a flip forward bonnet on my custom, is proving to be a real pain in the butt cause the bonnet points inthe middle, it doesn't seem much until you try tilting forward

Title: Re: Daily Post

Yeah i guess there is merrit in it, as sometimes the only thing left standard on some vans are the recesses.
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Sundownernz on March 08, 2013, 10:20:06 AM
We had a van here many years ago (pre '80) where they had reversed the recesses so that instead of recessing inwards, they came outwards. It was a big job and looked really different once you figured out what was going on. You had to do a double take to realise that the usual recess lines you saw had been reversed. Only saw it on the one van though.

German web site:

Even so, a rare classic on German roads: The Bedford Blitz. And even if the Bedford Blitz in Germany has always been a niche has led - in the UK was this truck a long time often seen vehicle and for many non-British is the Bedford Blitz a "typical British" car dar. This was mainly because, that this transporter was with artisans and small companies because of its functionality and reliability very popular, but was used very frequently by the British Post Office. And of course, very much as a milk transport vehicle. His "good-natured" appearance caused because additional sympathy.

The name was the Bedford commercial vehicle brand of Vauxhall Motors, so that the name actually Bedford only small trucks and buses were built. The bus division was also one of the main reasons why Bedford came into financial difficulties in the mid 1980s, as the early 80s known as the Transport Act 1980 was introduced in the UK, which broke the state bus monopoly and should deregulate bus services. Then the need for large coaches jumped and Bedford had in this area due to its focus on small buses in the cold.

Rob, Debbie and family who own it are great folks, I had the honour of parking up next to them at the Kumeu rod show a couple years back, well thats after they stopped to see if I was ok. My standard bedford died outside the show and they stopped to help, was a maiden voyage and problem was only a loose computer connection.
After the show we sat and had a chat

Vanadium is owner by another of our club members and was beyond repair. He now has a MK2 CF being rebuilt. This one is being stripped down and some parts being used to repair a couple more CF's in Reagans shop. The rest on offer on trademe. As busy said, he's a trained coachbuilder and does great work and is a really nice guy, so if you need any custom work done, he's your man.

Hey Bas, yeah was sitting in the sun with dogs this morning and thinking about that. I really do want to get it finished, i was so close when the metal guy pulled out. My daughter is getting married next year, so i want to finish a few things up this year and i will just hit it full hrottle after xmas. We only had a few bits of body work to do and it was into paint. Being it has been 2yrs since we last worked on it, i am going to see if he wants to finish it for me. I have'nt given up on it, it will get done and it will blow your mind when its done.

Bas, there is an interesting story behind that orange CF2 that is for sale in South Africa. In the early '80s when vanning was at its peak a South African caravan manufacturer called Jurgens imported 200 brand new plain old CF2 panel vans from the UK. They pulled out the original engines and transplanted Ford V6 3 liter motors with manual gearboxes and then proceeded to fit out the interiors with 4 swivel captain's chairs, and fold down couch. The four seats swiveled  to face a round removable cocktail table. The vans featured the windows as shown on the orange van and they were fitted with air-conditioning. The vans were re-badged as a Jurgens Cruise' o Van and were offered in light metallic blue paint or flat beige with brown stripes. I bought one of these vans in 1999 and rebuilt it with a 350 small block. There aren't many survivors of the original 200.
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Bas / NZ on August 25, 2013, 08:49:45 PM
Sounds like a good buy then, yes in the ad it was called (Jurgens Cruise' o Van )  so this is one of those for sure then. Thanks for the info, interesting, take it this is the blue one in your gallery / below...

And you brought the Porsche over with you and not the Bedford???? :D

Yep, bad call in hindsight. I sold that van for ZAR 28,000 which works out to about $4K kiwi and there wasn't a spot of rust in it. In my photo that you posted you will see the light blue nose of an interesting looking car pointing out of the garage. That is a 1964 GSM Flamingo. Only about 120 ever made and I rebuilt that one from a bare shell that we found lying under a tree in the bush. Although not a Bedford I'll attach a before and after shot just for fun. Also sold that before we moved. Another of my big regrets.
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Bas / NZ on August 26, 2013, 06:01:02 AM
Yes, I guess if we could see into the future, we would all make different calls, but for most of as that is not the case, when I was around 23yrs I had a chance to buy a Bedford that was owned and built by Mike Ironside, a well known self taught customizer here, but I didn't, I regret that choice so much, even today. ;) A lady brought it and the real pain was that she lived local, so used to see it on the street a lot, didn't help things...

But Gordon, nice find and job done on the 1964 GSM Flamingo, had seen photo's of this type of car before, but was not sure of its name.. Well the good news is you are now  back on track now with the rebuild of your van, that I'm sure will bring may years of joy, after all the pain they give us in the process... ;)
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Gordon on August 26, 2013, 03:11:27 PM
Yep, at the time you make a decision based on the knowledge at hand. With the extra knowledge gained later come the regrets. Thought I would post a more appropriate Bedford picture that includes my old Flamingo.

Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Gordon on August 26, 2013, 06:48:29 PM
Hi Bas, when I bought the van it was in pretty poor condition. I've got a few pictures of the van when I first bought it, but they aren't in soft format so I'll scan a few and upload them to my gallery. It was beige with the brown stripe when I bought it and the standard Cruise o Van interior . I managed to get the van lower by fitting shorter front springs and I had the rear leaf springs reset. I'll load up some pics shortly.

Posted on this before, but info this time around.

Well on paper the CBS Supervan was a promotional vehicle but that doesn’t mean it shares any similarities with other promotional vehicles like say the Oscar Meyer Weiner mobile.
Alan Arnon, the marketing manager of CBS automotive parts built this as a promotional one off sometime in the 80s. (CBS made brake pads, clutches, belts etc)

Starting as a standard Bedford CF the most noticeable modification done to this Van at first glance is the wide body but beneath all of that custom bodywork lies the real craziness.

This van is powered by a 4.4 Rover v8 motor, has a Jaguar XJ12 front and rear suspension (that’s the one with inboard brakes), air shocks, Recaro seats with speakers in the headrests… the list goes on and on.


Basically the CBS Supervan is a super awesome van that once roamed the uk but seems to have have vanished over the years.

Apparently it is being mothballed so really someone needs to find it and bring it back out.

Hi Fellas

The blue van on pg113 with the vertical twin headlights, can someone tell me what vehicle those lights would have come from. I would really like to have stacked headlights or do you guys have any other ideas for headlights, want the twin vertical headlight look. Would LEDs work, if so what type. they seem to come in driving lights only so far as the rectangle ones are concerned.

Thanks, Brendon

Looks like Mazda 929, could bring in some Dodge or Chev van ones (early model) a few outfits online that sell them and ship to NZ..
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Sundownernz on October 08, 2013, 09:33:03 AM
Hey Brendon,

Check out the lights in the blue van further up this page in-front of the caravan. Those are available as single lights from Hella. Buy 4 of them and make up your own vertical mounting plate to fit them into, then make up a light surround to suit, job done. Those lights are a generic one, fitted to all sorts of vehicles. The 4 in the front of my van are the same fitted into a Daihatsu Delta truck mounting plate. I'll see if I still have the Hella part number at home and if so I'll post it here.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Garry.

Hi,

I spotted this blue van in 1990 in germany. Sorry but I do not know from which car the lights come. Conversions with Chevy Van parts were popular at that time. Hella would also be possible.

Peter

Hey Brendon,

Those Hella part numbers are as follows:

#1041    165 x 100 Quartz Halogen - high beam
#1042    165 x 100 Quartz Halogen - high/low beam

Well came across these while cleaning up, a bit water damaged but ok

Red one is UFO, Green back one is Joint effort ran a 4.1 Falcon motor, Silver one has a chev front and the other a Holden grill by the looks of it.

From the 80's,  Auckland Custom Van Show.

Shame these vans have a horrible end, even that "mirror image" was last heard of was up on blocks rusting away out south Auckland somewhere.

I've got some photos of a custom bedford with full murals that was hit in the front, this was back in the 80's, think it was called barbarian. Was the first and last time I ever saw it but I remember running home to grab my hanamax 500 camera and taking lots of photos of the interior. I'll try dig them out

Grant, who owned it was a boat builder (is now drag racing in the states), fibre glass (and ply) side skirts and flares, 350 chev ..., they put a commodore front suspension in it to get it real low but because it was so low it always looked top heavy - needed a roof chop
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Sundownernz on October 29, 2013, 09:40:39 AM
Ah good memories.
The front end on UFO was the second it had after the first one met a sad end with a stone wall. Owned/builder Graham Hill founded Parlour Vans here in Auckland and is still around travelling the country in a big black Hino bus with cowboy murals on it. The silver van was owned by Jim & Bernie Bainbridge and was running a 350 chev and were members of Auckland Custom Vans. Joint Effort was also a Parlour Vans vehicle.
Mirror Image was with West City Custom Vans and although it looked the part, didn't drive too well with the commodore suspension and used to bump steer a bit. Would have looked awesome with a roof chop as it was pretty low already.
I'll see if I can dig some old pics out.

Cheers,
Garry.

I've actually started doing one, started out with the hotwheels A team van, so far have just filed the body lines to that of a CF. Took a bit to much off the front corners so need to find my old body lead.
Have a few 1/24 plastic vans, was thinking of doing one of my custom CF but would probably be easier to scratch build it instead of using an existing kit as the chevy and dodge vans differ to much from the CF

I don't know if that van was ever finished.
It was sold a few years ago - http://bedfordcf2van.blogspot.com/2011/08/for-sale-bedford-cf-v6-chopped.html (http://bedfordcf2van.blogspot.com/2011/08/for-sale-bedford-cf-v6-chopped.html)

(Good joke i heard today, )

Little Joey goes to confess,=


"Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose girl."

The priest asks, "Is that you, little Joey Pagano?"

"Yes, Father, it is."

"And who was the girl you were with?"

"I can't tell you, Father. I don't want to ruin her reputation."

"Well, Joey, I'm sure to find out her name sooner or later so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?"

"I cannot say."

"Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?"

"I'll never tell."

"Was it Nina Capelli?"

"I'm sorry, but I cannot name her."

"Was it Cathy Piriano?"

"My lips are sealed."

"Was it Rosa DiAngelo, then?"

"Please, Father! I cannot tell you."

The priest sighs in frustration. "You're very tight lipped, and I admire that. But you've sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for 4 months. Now you go and behave yourself."

Joey walks back to his pew, and his friend Franco slides over and whispers, "What'd you get?"

"Four months vacation and five good leads..."

Nebs.
You need to wake the van culture up in SA, they don't know how easy they have it when it comes to road worth certificates and the law, no excuses for everyone not  to have a van. -  having just gone through the nightmare of getting my lorry on the road I can see why the van population in Australia is so small.
You can't make a plan over here, a case of Castle on the back seat just doesn't cut it - its the book or nothing and no matter what you try it gets blocked .
Luckily its all over now so we've started on the road of making her look the part, so far so good.
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: NEBS on October 10, 2014, 11:04:26 PM
Hi Bean,
I am trying to get in touch with some of the owners, but very few are actually on the road. The best way is to attend few of car shows with a nice van to inspire the other guys to bring theirs out again.
This is a nice one in the Cape.
The white one was for sale or swop on gumtree a few months ago.

You guys are fortunate to have this site and to be able to get together at times. I also have lots of pics of British and French vans, but would not be sure if these has been on the Buga site before. Anyway, here is another SA van to view. This one has a really neat spoiler and wheel arch setup with gullwing back door..

This is an original UK Bedford PR photo. It appears to be the Electric model with a body kit and a few extras.

The bumper cowling is the same as on Wobbly Bob's yellow drag van, with added spoiler. Very nice.  8)

Nebs .
My first love for Bedfords came when I saw a van in Durban in a shop window at the bottom end of West Street back in '76 called "L'il Blue Mule" I think the price was R12000.00 at the time ,for me it would have been 3 years salary so it put it out of reach back then - Any idea of what happened to it  or do you have pics of this van?
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: NEBS on November 03, 2014, 05:20:58 PM
Hi Bean,

I remember the van. Unfortunately I lost pics of it.
I drooled over Lil Blue Mule. I was for sale at "Love Motors" in Smith street.
John Love had it built for himself.
He sold Escort and Combi Panelvans semi customised from this shop. (Durban Surfers transport)
This was Lil Blue Mule, but was dark Royal Blue where yellow on pic and light metallic blue with airbrushwork on back where tan on pic.
I was driving this Transit (daily transport) with Frazetta airbrushings at the time, while I was building my first CF (this blue and white van)
This green Bedford used to park at bottom end of West street (close to Point road) Was my main inspiration to finish my Beddy.

Hi Wendy,

Have you looked into seeing if you can make a sliding door track out of Teflon? When I was working in Indo we skid 400ton generators round using Teflon and Stainless Steel strips as there was very little resistance. When we needed to help slide the Indo crew used grease but it was messy and made Teflon soften so I converted them to use Morning Fresh detergent and the result was awesome and didn't affect Teflon. Two big advantages was due to heat grease would melt and make a huge mess and catch dust making a gritty paste. Whereas the detergent would not melt and even when dried would go wax like and when it came to mess ya just hit it with pressure cleaner and any grit or dirt would be washed clean.

With Teflon it comes in different colours for the different densities. We used white and red as these were the hardest and would not crush under 400ton ( 4 x pcs 200mm x 400mm x 25mm thick ). You can buy in sheets or square lengths an trim easily using circular saw.

Just a thought and may eliminate the grease issue.

Over an out.

Kool Idea will run it past Ray as he will be doing the refit i guess...yes greasy grit is what you get after a while...especially after dirt road adventures :(
Ray just loves working on the beddie..... ::)

That ambo looks like the one that was/is down here in Hamilton, was a sounds shop promo van but was a different colour. The dash makes me think it's the one, was talking to the guy about it when he was thinking of selling it, the dash is joined in the middle between the vents and if memory serves it was running a 350chev
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Bas / NZ on December 01, 2014, 09:59:21 AM
Different, runs 202, the Guy had 2 for sale on TM a little while ago the other ran a 350, this  seller is different from the other seller I think.

well have been thinking on what to do with the old Girl (bedford) as i have taken the camper off and put the tray back on as i use / need it more often now, (doing scrap steel runs). But i'm looking at making the camper a slide on slide off, just drop the 2 sides and back off slide on ontop of the deck fix down and off we go..

what thinks you all??

yeah thats what my thinking was George. but i'm stuck with the jacking off and on at the moment?? just not sure how to go about it...

any ideas??
Title: Re: Daily Post
Post by: Bedfordcrazy on January 31, 2015, 09:06:38 AM
Mate that is simple, you can buy the jacks from a few different places, and just mount them in all 4 corners, and when you are ready to park the camper you just wind down the legs or ( electric ) the legs drop down, camper lifts enough to clear the chassis and you drive out. You have locking pins that clamp the camper to the tray when in use. How much a set up would be for manual or electric i'm not sure. But try some of the trailer places they carry different height legs, maybe some of the truck companies.   But i would be interested in watching the progress if you go ahead with it. The other benefit is it gives your suspension a break when the camper is off the bedford.

good point.. i had heave duty shocks from pedders put in a few years ago & also had the rear springs re-set 3" higher for the weight.

the prob at the moment is cash flow... so need to look at something not too costly and easy to do.

They had  found a few small areas of rust, that Robert was able to sort out. They have not long came back from a trip to Perth with their car club! The van is pretty well stock too! So hopefull we will have another member for this page soon!

Mark Fishpool posted these pics of his awsome van!

I built this van in 1983. It has been stored away for nearly 20 years. I got it out of storage and checked it all over ready to put back on the road.
It needed the carburettors stripping and cleaning, new oil and filter. The brakes needed adjusting, but were not seized.
Now has an MOT and on the road again.

Prince Philip once used a green 1980 CF Electric van for transport around London and trips between Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. It was retired because of the inconvenience of charging, and it's quietness meant other drivers couldn't hear it come up behind them.

The Royal Bedford Van is currently garaged at their Sandringham estate.

The EV CF isn't as quiet as you imagine... you hear the whine of the electric motor, and the noise of the tires, wind, suspension rattles and brake squeaks...

Yea, just a joke Ray, as the fuel cap is still there, Yep see you and your van next Sunday. mines on hold for now, except for the odd drive around the block, as I have had to much work on, the good thing being is that I have all I need to finish it, so when the time comes it will be a quick job, hope to put October / November away for it and off to Germany mid December to mid January but back on it when I get Home, hope to have all mods done this summer and on the road....... :-\

John Evans posted this on facebook, had to share some history with you.


Picked this poster up at the van nats at Bathurst last year this was the first major air brush job that i did in 1973 i was still learning the craft at the time but i had no record of it other than  a yellowed dog eard photograph .this beastie had a mid mounted big block  and a tailshaft about 10 " long and went like buggery in a straight line but not to good around corners
It was owned by my boss and good mate Alan Hempel  when i worked for Graf X international in Dandenong where i Built a car for the first Mad Max movie.

This ambulance would have been the most accessorised. It was based in Helensville back in its day and was always kept in pristine condition by the 2 x paramedics based there in the early 1980's.

Interestingly this Bedford is still registered and getting around today.

If you want to see a collection of beddies owned by active members on facebook....
Click on the link or copy n paste into your browser
A fellow asked for pics of our vans....

A very interesting collection and a great observation quoted  by Dash Laver on these beloved bedfords.....

"Great thing about the Beddys is the variety of designs and individuality owners express. It clearly isnt like say kombis and peeps are too scared to play with their "investment," the Bedfords almost make you flick your creative on to GO :) "

Yeah there are so many different combinations on vans etc nowdays Wendy.
There isn't many stock vans at all left.
Most are modified in some way.
Be interesting to see how many stock ones are left?

Might be a good thread to start?

How many stock vans out there?
Members post up pictures of your stock van only.

This is a sad post today....quoted from Dale Gordon Taylor on facebook...

The death of my first Bedford. At least it was sudden not a drawn out slow demise. Guy chose to ignore a stop sign and hit me square on at the back axle. She flipped straight onto the roof when the opposite side wheels dug into the road and spun like a top up the street. Didn't even break the side mirrors! No seatbelt on at the time but not a scratch on me. Surfboards had a couple of dings though. Insurance company wrote it off. Wondering if anyone here ever scored some parts off the old girl?

Nice to see the strength in all the a,b,c &d pillars , still holding strong  :o

   Sad Bedford pic . But those boots landed perfectly 10 out 10  ;D

    As for a stock original Beddy , back in 2008 when l bought my van . I got some repairs from a

   bloke in Brisbane , named Paul who fixed up vans, sold parts & was a certified Beddy Nut . He told me a

   story about purchasing an original unmolested van off an old lady . So surprised to see one in

   that condition ,  he had it vacuum sealed and placed in an undisclosed location for prosperity.

   I believe him , I still have his contact details on my receipt . So if true . We have one , just need to

   find the other .. Cheers Frank

Sounds like Paul Cahill. Mr. Bedford, top bloke! He built the LHD Scooby Doo Mystery Machine Beddie van for the first movie, and a second one for Movie World promotional work. (pic.) He said Warner Bros. shipped the movie van to the U.S. following filming and that it only had a Holden red 6 and drum brakes.

    Your right Hobbit . It was Mr Paul Cahill , what a character . Let you wonder round

    his property checking out his Beddy stockpiles , while he fixed your van . Out in the

    boondocks forget the suburbs name  , south of Brisbane city . He was a hero to many

    Beddy owners in that city . As his prices were fair his work was good and best of all

   always a laugh .........Cheers Frank

A bit of bedford history
The CA bedford common modifications of use.
And then the CF were introduced and followed in the trade.
So great to see the  passion and love keeping the tradition alive.
Awesome bit of history of our beloved vans,

I made the cut :)
The red one you posted up further Wendy is  he bought it when he was 15 (so probaby 20 plus years ago) he is very keen to get back into the scene after being dormant for a few year.
Its still pretty much the same now but the interior will be taken out and put in storage to make room for a back seat for family duties.

Hey Outriding, the post "Bedford CF factory photos - Australia 1971", those vans aren't "in" the production line as such, they are in the repair shed. Look at the second photo and you'll see the imperfections marked out, and they still do that today, but usually after.
