Hello from new Bedford owner


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

Recently treated myself to a lovely little Bedford OY. 1941 model, rebuilt by military in 1951, so probably several vehicles mixed together after that 😂

I've been hankering after a military vehicle for several years but not had the spare cash to get one until now.

My Dad was a driving instructor with the Royal Signals back in the 1950's and he used to drive the OY. He passed away a couple of years ago and left me a small inheritance, enough to buy a vehicle, so I decided on the OY as a bit of a memorial to him.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone and I will apologise in advance for any stupid questions I may ask 😉

Thanks guys. 

I'm very happy with her. Got a few minor niggles, but easy enough fixed. Needs a clutch plate and also plan on giving her a full service and change all the oils.

Luckily I've got a few friends who are military vehicle fans to call on if I need a hand.
