A Bedford CF 350 ? Or, something else? A bit of Help, Please.

Hi, New to the board and hopefully looking for some pointers in getting some background information on a 'Bedford Maxiome' that I have just purchased and looking to restore.
There seems to be limited information on the web for both technical and promotional material in order to get a bit of historical understanding. Also, future engine repair, etc.

I have seen it listed as a Bedford CF 350 but struggling to find more info on this 'Maxiome'. (Have also seen Images of same the Maxiome Body on an Inveco Chassis on a younger Motorhome.)

The Bedford came with a Certificate of Manufacture from the Vauxhall Heritage Centre (Griffin House) Detailing the Engine and Chassis manufacture in 1981.
For some reason its on a 'Q Plate', although the DVLA detail it registered 1st Jan 1981. My thoughts are based on the Original Number Registration being sold as a Cherised Number... ??

Any pointers in the right direction would be gratefully received in help keeping this Bedford on the road.


Cheers

Mike

Seems I may have found some information regarding the Engine and Chassis specifications in the Relevant Forum Sections.

Cheers for the info, Mike.

Hi and welcome to the club. I was going to point you in the direction of the brochures HERE so you could get some info on the chassis but I see you have already found them. I can't say that I have ever heard of Maxiome before so it's a new model to me. A few more photos would be nice if you have any.
