Some say A Man and His Truck Is A Beautiful Thing!
I say some things, you just can't put a price tag on,and that's exactly how we feel about this 1975 Bedford J1 truck.
The Bedford TJ was first manufactured in 1958 and was an updated version of the TD range. The TJ was available in the United Kingdom up until 1975, after 1975 it was manufactured only for export.
ABOUT THIS CAR
It’s not in show condition by any means, but then who said that such trucks needs to be concours to be desirable?
With only three owners from new and with a last owner for 34 years, this NZ New truck features not only a rather nice shade of red, but was privileged enough to be loved and taken care of for all these years. It is unfortunate that so many trucks don’t share the same privilege nowadays.
One could see that the previous owner has taken care of it; he has been through it from end to end, not to show it, but to use it.
This truck has a really good deck and mechanically it's pretty reliable. Of course, with trucks, there will always fine tuning and tweaking to be done but its all basic engineering with little effort, both physically and financially required to keep it running.
If you love history and old things, you will appreciate this truck. It will make a great promotional vehicle, plus it sounds so good and drives really well. It is guaranteed to give anyone great joy when driving it, plus it can also be used to benefit and support the wider community one resides in through charity runs, not for profit organisations etc
These are trucks that can motor along…they just cruise along really. A great asset for your business!
TRANSPORT / WORLDWIDE SHIPPING CAN BE ORGANISED ON THIS VEHICLE ON BUYER'S BEHALF AT BUYERS COST.
