HTN 63 - Army spec Bedford found along the Garden Route in the Cape - to be fully converted

17th March 2005
While the Sandstone Heritage Trust is not concentrated on old commercial vehicles, we do have some interesting old items. For example South Africa’s oldest commercial vehicle – a 1910 Peerless is part of our commercial vehicle collection. We have spent a lot of time looking for a suitable army spec Bedford.

We found this one along the Garden Route in the Cape. It is a military spec that has been converted for use in a mining application.

During 2006 it will be re-converted to a full spec Military Bedford.
Below is a picture of two of our military commercial vehicles already restored –
a Diamond T and a 1942 Dodge Power Wagon.
