Very very similar to mine, and I love mine to bits. It all depends on the condition I would say, both the mechanical side and the camper structure.

In the case of mine the camper part was largely original, unaltered and in good condition but in spite of having done a low mileage the engine needed a rebuild(just completed).

Perhaps a telephone conversation might be helpful? if so PM me and we can exchange numbers.

About to buy or not.??

Hi Lainey,

From my own past experience I would say don't worry too much about the mechanical side because you can pick up spares around the country everybody seems to worry about engine's and gearboxes, be more concerned about the chassis and remember that on these Bedford CF's the cabin floor and door steps are part of the chassis.
The parts that are harder to find and therefore more costly are rear axle/diff, prop-shaft, front cross-member, front wing's, doors, and rocker panel's, look for rot around the windscreen, a serous place for leaks and rust!
No my own Bedford CF the main area's on the back body were the seams long each side of the roof and around the rear side window's, look carefully around the cab and trust your nose when you get inside for the smell of damp.
