This truck has been mis-identified. It is actually a Bedford, Model K. The Model K was the smallest Bedford truck model, and was rated at 30 hundredweight (1.5 tons) or 2 tons capacity. The Model K was introduced in mid-1939 and was built until 1953, when it was replaced by the TA series, and more specifically, the Bedford A1 Model (30 cwt capacity).
