!984 Bedford CF Camper (Walker Conversion)

Hi!
Thought I'd introduce myself as this is my first CF. Always had Trannies or cars before. Oh and me Motorbikes!
Recently bought my Camper off Ebay for not a lot of money, it had a little tax left and a longish MOT. Do nt know much about the model other than its a Camper Van conversion by Walkers. It has a 2.3 slant 4 cylinder with 4 speed ZF gearbox, electronic distributor and Webber carb. The chassis is remarkably solid. And rear suspension is the heavy duty type.
Apparently the previous owner had put in a new cambelt and head gasket, and I cant find a leak anywhere. Clutch, gearbox and axle are all fine. And the rear diff does nt whine..it seems I bought something half decent reading the trials and tribulations of others on the Forum.
The body is somewhat tatty...surface rust or a little crustiness here and there. But all in all I think it has the makings of a nice vehicle.
Its already got two Captains chairs fitted - luxury or wot? So
I've started reupholstering inside first and then I intend to respray before the Summers end!
I've done a Google search to find out about the model but cant find nothing so if anybody has any info I'd welcome it! All I know further is that this is the transition model between the CF1 and the CF2.
So heres to a long Summer and hopefully a revamped CF at the end!

Hi Rich and welcome to the site.

You've got a CF1 facelift. Have a look at http://bedfordcf.co.uk/history.htm for a very brief history of the CF. I've no idea about the Walkers conversion though I've heard of Martin Walker but I think they were just on the CA vans.
