This book is a photographic celebration of the numerous Bedfords New Zealanders have owned and loved. From day one, Bedfords were quickly put to work in New Zealand. They were the backbone of many industries of the day - on the roads, land, farms, and wharves; in the forests, factories, towns and cities. Kiwis soon discovered that the reliable Bedford, with its sound engine, solid cab and versatile deck, could be adapted for 1001 purposes. The Bedford became the motoring equivalent of number 8 wire, its diversity and practicality epitomising Kiwi ingenuity. The Bedford and Kiwi connection continues today.
Apart from past, current and future owners, this lively book will appeal to all those with a sense of adventure, a dose of nostalgia, a flair for the artistic, an interest in detail and a joy for all things Kiwi!
