The Bedford Beagle was an estate version of the Bedford HA, a van with a 400 kg payload. The conversion was performed by Martin Walter Ltd. There are only a few examples left to this day. The Beagle turned in a camper called the Roma, which was also designed and built by Martin Walter.
The vehicle was introduced in 1964 and was originally equipped with a four-cylinder engine with a capacity of 1057cc. All round drum brakes and a few instruments were also fitted. Later, larger engines were used in 1967, they were 1,159cc displacement and 1972 they were 1256cc. The top speed increased from 116 km/h to 129 km/h.
In 1973 the production was stopped. The better equipped Vauxhall Viva replaced the Beagle.
