Walls Bedford CA restoration

February 1, 2015

This stunning Bedford CA has just been completed having undergone a full conversion process – and isn’t it just stunning!

The Bedford CA became a key model for Walls with its small size and ease of use. With the development of the Direct Drive System, they opened up great opportunities which had been previously stifled by the large Commers and associated vehicles.

Completed in the famous Walls ‘dogtooth’ livery, this beautiful vintage ice cream van is fully mobile and ready to bring smiles to everyone.

The chassis itself was originally a panel van for Radio City, and after a little TLC (and a bit more after that!) it was made fully operational and now sounds as good as the day it was first started up.

New wooden frames were drawn up and handcrafted before the fitting of aluminium panelling befitting of the era of when they were built in their 100s.

Finished in traditional blue marble laminate with a balloon man roof, the interior features a traditional 3 lid freezer with single chiller and has been brought up to date with the latest Carpigiani Rapida II and electric motor system.

Everyone has a Bedford Ice Cream Van memory, whether young or old – and this one is certain to create many more!
