How many versions of the CA van are there? Once I have them all I think I'll do a feature with a group photograph. This is the upgraded newspaper van. Originally it was 'Daily Express. When it was switched to the new casting the Evening Standard took over. No421 was made from June 1960 through to 1963.

Here we have a reasonable example. As with most of the two-tone Bedford CAs the top colour could be masked just to do the roof or sometimes it comes down to just below the bottom of the windows. The version with just the top of the roof painted silver is valued more highly than the half and half version.

If you are very lucky you may find this van in blue with 'AVRO BODE' stickers, these are rare and expensive.
