Bedford HA Van
The Bedford HA panel Van was introduced in 1963 as a goods veersion of the Vauxhall HA Viva. When the Viva evolved into HB, and HC, the Bedford HA van continued without panel changes until 1983. The HA Van was launched in 6cwt and 8cwt versions and then uprated to 8cwt and 10cwt models, the final versions being called 110 and 130. Martin Walter provided two conversions, one a simple van with windows and seats in called the 'Beagle' and the second one the Dormobile Roma motorhome which could sleep up to 3 people.
