A nice period piece, this 'split screen' Bedford CA van would have been used to deliver newspapers around London in the late 1950s/early 1960s. In deep yellow with silver grille and grey metal wheels on crimped axles. There are six decals: 'First with the News' in white in red on the diagonal roof sign, red 'Evening News' on the van sides, and headline boards on the cab doors.

This one is in excellent condition, with almost unmarked paintwork; just a little rub on the top of the roof sign. The decals are excellent too with a few tiny 'nibbles' around the edges. The axles are rust-free.
