How to find out the year of my CF250?

Post by christyjade on Wed May 17, 2017 11:13 am

Hi, I bought my CF250, and on the log book it says first registered in 1982, however I have been told that it's not the 1982 shape?? The front is the older version apparently. Is there any way to find out what year it was built? Or is it a 1982? 

Thanks :)

The facelift CF was in 1980 apparently. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bedford_CF

The year of first registration would be "after" conversion, so the base vehicle was probably built late 1980.

My oh my! I did my apprenticeship on them and the last of the CA's at Vauxhalls  petrol engines were ok. I think it was the first time I'd seen a timing belt as apposed to a chain

Hi,
I've got AS CF brochures for 1972, 1975 and 1977 showing round headlights and split front grill. The brochures for 1981 and 1983 show a one piece front grill with 'BEDFORD' across the front. The headlights are round but with square surrounds.

Not sure if that helps or hinders. I can scan some brochure images in and send them over via a pm if you like, I'll leave it with you.
