Yet another version of the Bedford CA van. Like the AA Service Van the St Johns Ambulance was carried on into the new casting without a change in model number. It began life in the split-screen version and continued into the Mk2 single piece windscreen model. The one shown is the later casting

Ambulances like these in the St Johns livery were a common site at country shows, perhaps there should have been a 'Gymkhana' gift set with the Land-Rover & Horse Box, an ambulance like this, a rider-less horse, a set of jumps and a dressing station.

The Bedford Ambulance was released in November 1957 and after a change in casting remained in the range until 1960. It is always cream with St Johns Ambulance decals however there is a factory error piece known with 'Home Services' labels on the front of the van. Values tend to be good, higher for the later casting with the one-piece windscreen.


Later casting, single piece screen, turned hubs
