1985 Bedford CF2 Panel Van 2300cc Diesel. The Bedford CF was range of full-size panel vans produced by Bedford. The van was introduced in 1969 to replace the older CA model, and was sized to compete directly with the Ford Transit, which had entered production 4 years earlier. This particular CF has had only 2 former keepers,Peterborough City Council until July 1994 (AV is a Peterborough registration mark) and then Mike Brown, MB Meats, Rowley Regis, Warley, West Midlands. Acquired in 1984 for restoring as a replica of one of the Brooker Buildings fleet of Bedford CF vans operated for several years from their works. The 2.3 litre diesel engine was a notoriously poor starter in cold weather and callouts for assistance early on winter mornings were a regular occurrence. Nevertheless these vans clocked up high mileages without any other major weaknesses and were often loaded well beyond their 2570 kg gross capacity. Being such a rarity on our roads we would like to think it is a sound investment. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. Viewing is highly recommended. All major debit and credit cards accepted. Please contact us for any further information. Delivery and shipping can be arranged.
