CF250 CB22 owner as of early last year

Post by Matt W on Tue Feb 16, 2016 3:12 pm

Hello all

Well I'm a fairly new owner of an old AS, it's a 35 years old Bedford but in lovely condition.  

How I got it, well, I lost my job over the Xmas period and thought to myself, why not take a flight to France and buy a van that's been parked up for a few years and is a non runner!!  scratch head

So that's exactly what I did allthumbz  (to the amusement of the wife)

It's actually in a very good condition, it has full service history, yep 35 years of it; the book has been stamped on every page and then on back cover! Ziebart rust protection from new, I have folders that are thick with details.

It has the original carpets that have never been walked on as they've been covered with additional carpet from new, it's great.

I have had to do a few things to it, including new brakes and shock absorbers all round, and it's going to need a rear wheel bearing, but apart from that it's ready for some trips out.

Welcome from N.E Wales    handshake     Great to see these old 'uns still going. Did you know about this van or simply come across it whilst looking?

Wonderful find, keep it original and take it to classic car/van shows and you''ll find it will be a nice hobby as well as a fun thing to go away in. Good luck.  allthumbz

I've just noticed I have to wait for 7 days before posting pictures, that's why it's not working  up!
