We came across this long ago abandoned Bedford 'D' tanker in the dunes of the Calanscio Sand Sea. The door opened and closed fine and that's me sitting in the driver seat. I have to assume it broke down and was deemed irrecoverable by whoever abandoned it there.
This is most likely a Bedord RL which was produced from 1953 through 1969. The RL was the 4x4 military version of the S-Type. Thus, it had likely been here for 20 years or longer!
