Watch these amazing old Bedford trucks as the convoy marks the vehicle’s 90th anniversary Bedford News

The Bedford Enthusiasts Club marked the 90th anniversary of the start of production of the vehicle with a convoy at Millbrook.

Drivers began northbound services at junction 15A of the M1, where vehicles left in age order – oldest first.

Before heading to Millbrook Proving Ground, the 24 vehicles visited sites historically significant for the brand, including Kimpton Road in Luton – site of the Vauxhall factory where the Bedfords were made from 1931 until the name was abandoned in 1991.

Vehicles on display ranged from the 1935 “W” model to one of the last “TL” models manufactured in 1989.

Carl Lemon, organizer of the Bedford Enthusiasts Club event, said: “I came up with the idea for the Bedford Anniversary Convoy to celebrate the 90th anniversary.

“Millbrook played a major role in the development of Bedford Trucks after it opened in 1970, so it was the perfect location for our event to wrap up.”
