There were many, many variants on the good old Bedford CA van, and this was one of the last. It uses the later casting with the one-piece screen and the ribbed roof. It was a nice piece of marketing by Corgi to use one of their own products to advertise the brand and to focus attention on their change of corporate image, bringing in the yellow & blue theme. They came in a few different variations of two-tone yellow & blue, some blue at the top, some at the bottom. sometimes the secondary colour comes down to the waistline as here, sometimes it is just on the roof.

They are very hard to find and expensive, the versions with blue at the bottom and yellow at the top are very rare and will cost you a lot of money if you can find one

This old boy is a bit worn, but unusually for play worn Bedfords the base is straight and it sits well. The offside transfer looks like it was never straight but the nearside one is not too bad
