Further to our recent Picture of the Week feature on the Bedford CA van – https://fleet.ie/times-past-pin-pic-the-van-that-rocked-and-rolled-the-1950s-1960s-the-bedford-ca/ – a rather special version is now up for sale from a TV star!
This Bedford is one of many vehicles Classic Car Auctions is now inviting entries for its live online auction on the 27th June.
Gary Dunne Classic Car Auctions Manager commented: “We are delighted to be able to offer our next auction as a live online sale. We have had a tremendous response from our vendors and have some very exciting entries confirmed.”
Of the Lots currently confirmed, there are two wonderful rare vehicles from the personal collection of Wheeler Dealers TV presenter Mike Brewer.
The first is a very rare 1960 Bedford Utilabrake Van, an original Martin Walker factory converted 10 seater. This van featured in Series 14 with Mike and Ed. The second is again a rare car, the 1968 Fiat 500F Berlina which underwent a full body and paint restoration in Italy in 2013. At the same time, the interior was retrimmed and the engine and gearbox were overhauled. Both vehicles were driven to CCA’s secure storage facility and are offered at No Reserve and £7,000 to £9,000 respectively.
The Live Online Auction takes place on Saturday 27th June.
