1974 Rare historic Bedford CF 2.3 Dormobile Landcruiser For Sale

Rare Bedford CF Dormobile Landcruiser with inclined Vauxhall 2.3 petrol engine married to a four speed gearbox with additional Overdrive. Mechanically sound with an excellent engine that pulls well and is most happy to cruise around 55mph, although is capable of much higher speeds. We have owned and loved this van for over 4yrs but now looking to sell to assist financing a house renovation, else we would have liked to keep this in the family for as long as possible. The van is registered as an historic vehicle and is therefore MOT and tax exempt. The last MOT was completed 2nd Aug 2017 at 69318 miles, with very minor advisories. The interior is all original and in very good condition for its age. Somehow the van seems much bigger on the inside than you would believe but at the same time very cosy. Originally equipped with a full double bed and two hammocks for children, but sadly we do not have the poles or hammocks though the chassis attachments remain. There is masses of storage space in both under-seat and overhead compartments, plus a generous wardrobe and long shelves meaning that you really never need to live amongst clutter; at the same time you can carry all you could want during a long holiday. There is also a dedicated compartment with portable toilet, which is fabulous for those night time moments particularly when raining outside! This space is also very handy for carrying larger items when in transit. The van is equipped with 240v electric hook up powering 3 single 13 amp sockets and the fridge with ice compartment. The fridge also works off the gas supply and sets ice solid! The two gas bottles are slung under the chassis and accessible though a hatch in the floor, so an easy change if the gas runs out. The cooker hob is a traditional two gas ring with grill. The separate gas cooker is sufficiently large to cook a roast dinner, as it has a number of times. The sink is supplied with pumped water and we have the waste canister which needs placing under the van when parked up. The water tank is vast and lasts us for up to two weeks of constant use. Externally the van is overall a good looker, but there are a few areas which need attention for it to be at its best. The worst of these is a patch of rust on the front drivers wing above the wing mirror attachment. In addition, the side window rubbers though functional are in need of replacement. Fortunately these are readily available and with a few hundred pound investment would really smarten the van exterior. One rubber has failed on a rear quarter and has been kept watertight with specialist tape. There are also a few small areas of rust and paint bubbles, but really quite good given the camper is 45 this year! The coach body is all fibreglass, so no rust but there are some fine cracks in a few places, if you look closely. Also the roof is a bit patchy in places where bird lime or similar has affected the paint (before we owned it), but as it is a pale colour underneath this doesn't really detract from the overall look. We have recently completed a health check which identified the need of some patch welding in a few areas which if it were to need an MOT would have to be completed; this work is valued around £600. In addition there are a few other small items that need attention, most notably the rubber gas hoses need replacing. As a result of the above we will be looking to accept a lower sale figure to compensate. Owning this van is a real pleasure, not only because it is so cute but also because it is so unusual and rare, therefore making it feel all the more special. Naturally this is beginning to translate to increasing value and therefore this is a sensible long term investment.
