hey, only just seen the replies to my intro, too busy ploughing thru the heap of info on the site here!!

I paid 1300 for the old girl, and yes, someone put a fair amount of work in! The interior is in really good nick, and the custom made luggage rack is pretty awesome, apart from not leaving enough gap over the roof- will leave me a bit of repair work from stagnant water...   :(

Oh yeah, and the old fella had the bright idea of painting her... with a coat of dulux and a brush! ???

Ah well, gives me more to do!

Oh, and not been out on whitehorse yet, but diid do a big loop round cheltenham, dandenong, and back to st kilda. Sure, as soon as I've got a full rego, you'll see me everywhere!!

Al.

Bedford Fan...big time
« Reply #205 on: September 26, 2012, 08:30:27 PM »
Hi there,

so I'm a massive Bedford fan and i'm currently saving up for my dream Bedford. i have a few question if i may?

Where should i be looking (apart from here) for Bedfords?

I plan to have this car for at least 10-20 years...it's going to be my car for life i figure sure you can spend 20-30 grand every five years on some plastice piece of shit with no character but I'd rather  have a Bedford and put my money there.... Right?

so where do you get parts import them?
what's insurance going to cost me

W ;Dhat I'm asking for is a bit of a financial breakdown so i know what i'm up for....well if you don't mind fellas

Thanks

Adrian

G'day Adrian, welcome aboard - however, you should be warned  - once you own a bedford, there is no turning back!......welcome to the darkside.........................

This site rocks with advice, idea's, monetry breakdowns and a fair share of stupidity - all in all a great community. Search what you're looking for and enjoy the ride - you are in very good company my friend as i have discovered first hand.

welcome............mezzmo

Hi Folks, Been waiting 30yrs for my CF to turn up and it did, WooHoo !!!

I`m a Coachbuilder from Edinburgh, been in Aus for 12 yrs now with frequent visits home, in fact we (the family) just returned from a Christmas and New Year trip to Scotland and a few nights in London... all a bit hectic...

I did plan to fill my cases with CF parts but was so busy celebrating.... i forgot, lol... also most places were closed for the holidays...

Back to my Van, it`s a 1977 SWB with perfect roof gutters... being a coachbuilder i won`t buy rusty vehicles.... this one is very nearly mint, the van is in primer and has been stripped of all fittings eg handles, lights, windows etc. there are two or three small rust patches to cut out and weld but nothing in the grand scheme of things... all handles, lights, grille, dash etc is with the vehicle and original. i dont want to restore the van as i do that every day at work and i don`t want to do a custom build, i just want a running, solid reliable van, i will do a few mods but nothing too rad.

i only just got Him.... yes it`s a He and never a "Beddy" (sorry) always just a CF.... he was dropped off in the middle of Dec and i really want to get things started soon.....

things i need to get him going :  Engine.... set up for Holden motor so it looks like i`ll go for a 186/202 with 5spd Celica box.... not had a look yet but are they out there?
                                               Body.... full rubber kit, seen the threads but any up to date ones ? i think Spectrum Rubber may be the go ?
                                                           weld and prep areas, organise paint and give it a hit.... easy...
                                               
                                               Wheels.... He came with a set of HQ Racing Mags with Brigestone rubber in good nick 225/15/60 i think..

well thats a bit of a run down on what i have to do any help in finding Motor and box would be great but hopefully i can find something locally... and cheap... will keep yo up to date with what goes on with Vincent, hopefully soon....

                                         Cheers All, Scottish Mark :-)
