Oxford Diecast B Taylor Builders (Auf Wiedersehen) Bedford HA Van - 1:

Product Code: HA021
58 reviews |
Sold out
£14.95

Auf Wiedersehen Pet first appeared on our screens over 25 years ago and was the story of seven out of work builders from various parts of England who were forced to work in West Germany. This is a model of Barry the electricians Bedford HA van . The HA van was very economical and sold well into the large fleets, notably the regional gas companies, the electricity boards, water authorities and British Railways and Post Office Telephones. When the Morris Minor ceased production in 1972, Bedford stepped into the void created by the lack of an immediate replacement and gained large orders from Post Office Telephones (1972-1982) and later Royal Mail (1975-1978). The HA was also modified for a number of special applications, including a 'high top', which Martin Walter designed primarily for the garment trade. A good number of these were also sold to laundry companies, whilst several local authorities employed them in their 'Park and Gardens' departments. Camper versions soon appeared and firms like Morrisons, Cummins and Archibold Scott converted them to ice-cream vans and burger bars.

    Bedford HA

    Bought this little van mainly because I liked the model and do collect various sizes. Found it a good model with the only let down being the windscreen is slightly large. I do not expect this sort of priced vehicle to be as good as say a Minichamps model. You certainly have improved the quality of your models and when I compare it with some of your older models e.g. the Austin A40 Somerset which is way out on looks. Dinky Toys made a brilliant one of these back in the '50's especially as it was meant to be a toy. You have come on leaps and bounds over the years so keep it up.

    Barry Taylor’s van

    Having driven 2 Bedford HA vans daily for over 7 years with BT, the model is an excellent miniature version of the real van. Being a fan of Auf Wied Pet, it was a must have. Well done.
