Bedford - Cars, Motorcycles & Vehicles

Although the Bedford name was retired in 1991, its influence will never be forgotten. Formerly attached to Vauxhall, the name was synonymous with British trucks and lorries for years.

Bedford chassis have been used for everything from fire engines to caravans, proving that you cannot keep a good design down. Commercial vehicles travel more miles and face heavier wear than your car, so they are be built to last. Drive something solid with a Bedford chassis.

About Bedford - Cars, Motorcycles & Vehicles

From the 1930s until the 1980s Bedford was the commercial vehicle arm of GM Europe. The company produced several popular light vans and lorries and was particularly associated with the UK and Commonwealth armed forces. The first vehicles to bear the Bedford name were the Chevrolet Bedford AC van and the LQ lorry in 1929. In 1931 the Chevrolet part of the name was dropped and the vehicles were simply called the Bedford AC and LQ. These vehicles were built in General Motors factory in Luton, Bedfordshire (hence Bedford) alongside the Vauxhall car range. The line up of Bedford commercial vehicles expanded during the 1930s, with Bedford capturing an ever larger share of the UK market. During World War Two production at Luton was given over to the Churchill heavy tank. A factory at Dunstable was acquired to continue the production of the Bedford range of trucks, which now included the influential four wheel drive forward control QL, or "Queen Lizzie" as it was dubbed by servicemen. In the 1950s Bedford developed the RL range of trucks for use by the military. The RL's most famous application was as the "Green Goddess" fire engine. These are still used by the British military as part of a back up fire service for use in times of national crisis. The most popular of Bedford's postwar civilian range of vehicles was the CA light van. These were the dominant vans in the UK in the 1950s and 1960s until the all conquering Ford Transit emerged in 1965.
