Hey johnno, he is dreaming, and i will tell you why, now a days if you have the shell, [firewall to rear bumper] you can buy aftermarket panels, stamped replicas to bolt onto the shell. Stamped panels like front gaurds, bonnets, boot lids, fluted guards, glass, trims, and from there all your brakes and bits you can get from rocket and other hotrod joints. His price does not surprise me.
We have a company here in brissy, and they sell complete factory stamped replica bodies and panels for some of the historical cars. The stamping is done in taiwan, shipped here and you can buy a complete XY falcon, 68 camaro, there are about 4 bodies they do at the moment, i am holding out for them to do the monaro, and the beauty is with them, they will build the car for you, or you can buy one panel a week till you have a complete car. I hear that when these cars are done, you have a hard time seeing the difference between real and replica.
BAD NEWS, my understanding is that we will never see beddy parts, because the guy that owns the rights to the bedford image refuses to sell, give or lone the image for replication, which is why we see almost no dicast bedfords, and never will in 1:18 scale, just matchbox and the like, of which i am lucky to have one of.  ;D We can hope he goes broke and sells or loans out the rights one  day.mmmmm  Here is the one I have, its as close as you will get without being sued for copyright infringement.

George.

Good question ben, all i know is the guy bought the rights from vauxhaul years ago, and he is a real hard arse, he just will not part with the rights to the bedford image, i dont think it has anything to do with the love of the beddy, for him it is just a business thing. So how do i know, well we were talking about diecast on here early in the year, so i contacted a mate who is high up in the diecast world, so high that he can pick up the phone and talk to any ceo of a car company and they talk to him, nice if you have that power, anyway, he talked to a couple of people for me and came back with that response, regarding copyright, he told me that the diecast companies like biante and others will not do a beddy if they can not do an EXACT replica, it wont sell and they wont do near enough is good enough, so he said to me that the minute anything changes and they can do a beddy in 1:18 he will let me know.
