Yes it is a CA Mk2, but with specialist ice cream van coachwork by unknown, (to me at any rate).

It's Smith Delivery Vehicles, Ltd. of Gateshead.

Eyebrow raised slightly - film is Plymouth, and Gateshead is about as far away as you can get in Englandshire. Any less distant alternatives??

Smiths ice cream vans and mobile shops were common throughout the UK. So Bedford CA chassis-front end delivered from Luton to Gateshead then back down-south as an ice-cream van.

Chassis-front ends were often delivered by a driver sitting on a wooden 'seat' wearing motor-bike leathers and goggles! They then had to find their own way back to Luton often by thumbing lifts from trucks. By the mid-1960s van deliveries from Luton by British Railways was more common on special flat-topped open wagons. Vauxhall/Bedford would therefore give the contract for vehicle delivery to either a car delivery company for cars, vans, trucks and passenger chassis or the railways would deliver cars and vans, for a car delivery company to deliver at the other end.
