  16. I have for Sale a Bedford TJ, PACKHORSE. its a early Reynolds Bolton conversion. The year is 1973 tax exempt, it comes complete with a snow plough which lowers up and down by means of a hydraulic pump. The woodwork is in good shape, the tin work is also good the truck shows signs of some ware and tear as you would expect. its showing 77000 miles. The engine is the petrol bedford 300. The tyres are like new with no cracks these were fitted just before the truck was laid up in a barn for several years. I have fitted a new clutch and pressure plate along with a new bearing. The truck starts runs and stops, the brakes are air over hydraulic. The interior could do with a spruce up but its not to bad. If you need to know any more then please PM me. OR call 07545 107174 price on application. Howard
