The Bedford CF was widely used. The British police, in particular, used them for prisoner transport and as riot vans. Some ambulance services kept them in service for longer than usual after production ended as they were liked by crews. The British Military also had a fleet of CFS. They were used by builders and builders' merchants, as well as by courier services and the Post Office. They were also a popular caravanette due to their space and reasonable fuel consumption. They were used as ice cream vans in Britain.
1985 CF series 2
In 1984 the CF was renamed CF2 and basically only received mechanical upgrades. The diesel engines remained the 2.3 (with the 2.0 available in continental Europe) but the old Vauxhall slant fours were replaced by a 2.0 L (1,979 cc), 78 hp (58 kW) version of the Opel CIH four cylinder.
New transmissions were also available:
4-speed GM all-synchromesh gearbox on short wheelbase models;
ZF 5-speed overdrive all-synchromesh gearbox standard on all long wheelbase models and optional on others;
GM automatic transmission optional on most models;
Choice of axle ratios on nearly all models.
And new efficient brakes:
Front disc brakes with self-adjusting rear drums on CF2/230 to CF2/280;
Self-adjusting drums all around on CF2/350 models;
Load-sensing valve standard on all models.
