VAUXHALL BEDFORD BEAGLE

Estate car.

Dormobile conversion of the HA Bedford van: no frills and even less sound-damping, though van-type doors give excellent loading height and will handle almost anything. Same 4.125 back axle as the cars: gets later uprated engines in 1967 (1159cc) and 1972 (1256cc). Always, however, drum brakes and not very good ones at that. Personal experience suggests 40mpg on light loads.
