A brief history of the Bedford Trucks

The Bedford 'O' series chassis was introduced in 1939, just before the start of World War II during which all industrial production concentrated on military needs. The Ministry of Supply decided on two models from Bedford to meet limited commercial needs for goods vehicles from 1941 onwards. The OLBD was an 'O' SERIES LONG 5-tons nominal rating Dropside truck and the OSBT was an 'O' SERIES SHORT 5-tons nominal rating End Tipper. 5-tons refers to the carrying capacity. T

Bedfords were made by Vauxhall Motors Ltd, Luton, Bedfordshire.

the 'O' type was re-specified for wartime military use resulting in the OYD 3-ton truck of which over 72,000 were built. These had the same 'O' series cab but with the more utilitarian simplified military style mudguards, sloping bonnet and front crash bar. The OYD was specified with single rear wheels and oversize tyres. There was also the OXC tractor unit version for hauling articulated trailers. Production resumed in 1945 and in the immediate postwar period Bedford 'O' types were probably the most common trucks on British roads.
