The Bedford TK is a truck that was produced by the Vauxhall subsidary brand Bedford Vehicles. The TK range replaced the Bedford S type in 1959 and served as the basis for a variety of derivatives including fire engines, military, horse boxes, tippers, flatbed trucks and other specialist utilities. A Special Purpose Truck version built for the British Post Office (later British Telecom) was used for installing telegraph poles and known as the "Polecat". The British Armed Forces still use four-wheel drive Bedford MKs — a variant of the TK.
Available with 4 cylinder and 6 cylinder petrol and diesel engines the TK was the quintessential light truck in the UK through most of the 1960s and 1970s, competing with the similar Ford D series. It was available in rigid form and also as a light tractor unit normally using the Scammell coupling form of semi-trailer attachment.
