The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model.

Oxford Diecast - Bedford
A Bedford CA MkI with Ice Cream van body joins the Museum Collection. The model is hard to date as the Split Windscreen dates from 1952 to 1958, but the revised front end was fitted from 1958 to 1964 and the pressed aluminium alloy grill was fitted from 1964 until the end of production in 1969. I assume Oxford Diecast incorporated these later changes to allow them to model all three versions.
