More information on this Bedford:
Years ago while on holiday with my folks in South Wales I photographed these two Bedford OB coaches laying forlornly next to a Richards coach garage in Moylgrove (Pembrokeshire). A few years later one of the coaches disappeared so whether one was restored I really don't know. The photo must date to the mid 1980s.
This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Bedford above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular OB would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Bedford OB, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the OB, and similar old Bedfords, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
