This model was sold by GWDs to A. Fleming, a farmer of Heddon Bush, in 1949. Stan Bulling bought it at a clearing sale and then sold it to Jack O'Melvena of Lumsden who was going to restore it but didn't. Bill Richardson bought it from him in July of 1988, and restored it in G. Hedley Carrier adornment by July 1994.
The Lucas park lights are not the usual lights fitted to Bedfords, but were original equipment on this truck, as are the 6 Goodyear tires.
