Yet another version of the perennial Bedford CA van. This is the last release though, I make it the fifteenth if you count the re-releases of the AA van and the St Johns Ambulance as new versions. This one actually replaced the St Johns Ambulance in the range. It was a bit out of place in the 1961 range with its lack of interior detail and its tin base. However this van was ubiquitous in the UK right through the sixties and even into the seventies until the almighty Transit showed the CA and its successor the CF the way to do vans properly. I learned to drive in a CF and would like a die cast as a memento, but the Dinky effort, the only one available, looks nothing like the real van,

Ramsay has this in two versions, both military green, but with suspension on one of them, I find this a bit hard to believe as I don't think the Corgi CA ever had suspension. As Corgi Bedford CAs go though, this one is not that valued or scarce. It was deleted in 1963.

This is an OK example. Paint & base not too bad, new red cross decals would make a huge difference.
