It’s incredibly rare to see a Bedford CF looking as good as this nowadays, especially a camper van.
From the seller: “Unrepeatable opportunity to purchase a completely sound and extremely rare 1979 Bedford CF250 ‘Broadland Maximus’ camper van. This van has recently been recommissioned having been dry stored in a barn for over 26 years. A significant amount of money has been spent to bring this van up to it’s current standard. A number of improvements have been made particularly to the interior but the van still retains it’s 1970’s charm. The mileage is recorded at 71000 with only two previous owners. This van has always been based in Norfolk, not far from where the original conversion took place, although I understand the previous owners used it frequently for trips to the south of France. I believe only a small number of these vans were converted and this is the only one of it’s type I have seen for sale. I can’t even find another image of a Broadland Maximus van on the internet so it must be a very rare vehicle and quite possibly the only one left. This is an ideal van if you are looking for something really sound and roadworthy that’s a little different to everything else out there.
This was cleverly designed as a five berth van. One sleeping area is created by folding the sofa cushions flat, with the installation of a table top between the two sofa frames and a further two fold down beds are located in the sides of the high top. A further single bed is formed by a hammock, suspended over the top of the front seats. The original conversion was completed by B C Risby Ltd of Cawston, Norfolk. It was then supplied to a Vauxhall main dealer in North Walsham.
With the exception of a professional repair completed to the leading edge of the bonnet and lower front panel, the bodywork is original and unrestored. There is a small dent both above and below the offside rear light but this would be a straightforward repair. Although the paint is showing minor signs of age in places, this is all purely cosmetic and the van is perfectly useable in it’s current condition as it has great patina.”
