Have to sell my Bedford Vauxhall Camper, $8000, when I get some photos up, that seems to be harder to do than it should be, craig@hobbyhoist.com.au Redcliffe. So check the photos on the last page of gallery. I saved this from being picked to death whilst working in Nelson NZ, got it thru a warrant of fitness, drove it a bit then imported it. So standard, I ve not robbed anything off it. Checked out the price of Kombis? This can be modded to a Holden 6, or 253, why would you buy a Kombi? Big water tank underneath, 4 rear shocks. Will post under body when I get the chance to hoist it, at Hobby Hoist DIY workspace, in Redcliffe. Has extensive work history, I ve done brakes right through, master and wheel cylinders. The wheels are odd, had to give back the Jelly Bean mags, actually has two wheels I will use on the Jumbo once its registered, from a set of 4. Also you can pick from all the Beddy stuff I have, all free with the sale. I found old brochures on the UK site from the seventies, become the quintessential anglophile tourer with waders, trout rod and butterfly net! LOL. A good home please, this old survivor does not deserve to be spared out. Auto Sleepers was started in about 1961, this is a factory job, not some bodies weekend knock up. the cabinet work is great, lots of internal storage spaces, in its day, was a 4 seater. Will research the factory more to see if I can authenticate its birthday. Enjoy some class classic camping. Downhill.

Hi Beddites, after a preliminary inspection for roadworthy, Im happy with progress. Two items that require parts, door check springs, holding doors open is a requirement, also must have a demister fan working. Any one with these parts spare? Was given a price of $500 for a fan and heater, could probably rebuild one for that cost. Any one gone around this with a different fan set up? Didn't snag pedal rubbers, was more interested in seeing full perimeter weld on all patches, time for another weld process. A keen body worker I met at a show here, Beddy owner too, does gas and solder work for those troublesome areas, then a good sand back. Can work better than MIG which can blow out when it contacts a bad patch. Tack in with MIG, fill in with the gas and solder. Can only improve my skills I guess.

Keep pushing uphill to get the downhill thrill!

Yes the camper single fold back seats not for a serious nights sleep. Love the Slider in the museum, I wonder if it would be possible to find the list of body numbers bought by APost, to see if it matches a plate, particularly one seaters. Tax payers money long since spent.

Many thanks Hooter for your detailed description of the LS1 fit & the  great pics.  Your 'how to fix ' problems such as sump on rack, also much appreciated, similarly tips on elect steering. I'm sure all this will save me some costly knock backs by the engineer when it gets looked at next month.
