Bedford History

To mark the 3-million production-milestone of Bedford vehicles, Vauxhall Motors Ltd. has issued a lavishly-illustrated 48-page, large-format booklet tracing the history of these vehicles from 1931 to 1978. Thus the story runs from the original 2-tonners to the present-day TM "heavies". Oddities and war-time Bedfords are included and I like particularly the picture of a Bedford OB Duple Vista coach taking a bridge on a country road, followed by a period Auston saloon, while serving N. Wales 'bus service - see page 18. Copies of the booklet are available free, on mention of Motor Sport, from the Public Relations Dept., Vauxhall Motors Ltd., Luton, LU2 OSY. - W. B.
