BEDFORD BEAGLE ESTATE
2-door 4-seater estate.
Martin Walter Ltd conversion, for Vauxhall, of Viva-based Bedford 8cwt van, running for years after the original HA design was superseded by later Vauxhalls. Severe style, rather austere interior, but square and roomy. First cars did 72mph, later versions over 80mph, but handling with transverse-leaf front end rather old fashioned.
