This was shown in a dream/flashback to 'Nam'.! (..probably another S.African vehicle.!)

It is certainly based on a Bedford RL:

I can only guess that the front end has been changed to use a different (bigger ?) engine and a larger radiator.
I don't yet know who made those changes and what the official name is.

Perhaps the film producers customised it so that it wouldn't be recognisable as a Bedford.

I agree..... probably just modified for the movie.

uses the original bedford cab,but all that metal forward of cab is dummy...the engine in this model bedford sits under the cab..so theres nothing under the repro bonnet..only fresh air!
