Technical specifications, photos and description:
It has only got 60. 00 on the clock and it has the old mot's that back it up.
The engine is a beautifully sweet 1700cc petrol with a five speed box. Better than a gutless smokey bad to start old diesel and it is so much nicer to drive. Good on petrol too.
The seats have been replaced with modern ones with headrests for comfort and safety.
The windows are smoked and the van has been painted black. not sure why. it may have been done when new as perhaps someone needed a black van and the factory didn't produce them in black. who knows! It certainly looks the part and it has a dateless registration so it looks more like a van from the 60's. The chap I bought it from pointed out the Civil Service Motoring association Grill badge ( the other badge is an AA badge ) and said it belonged to Q branch as their spy equipment delivery vehicle. of course he was joking but that is what it looks like. Don't park it outside a bank though as it looks like a bunch of villains in balaclavas are about to jump out and rob the joint!
Would look great sign written for a business or put a wood burning stove and a bed in the back and make it a surfers camper van.
Bodywork has the usual dents and scrapes and touch ups from it's 29 years but in my opinion these give the van character. if you want cool this is the way to ave'em. ask yourself. would Steve McQueen have been seen driving a VW Bay camper van with pastel chequed curtains and an awning. no he would have thrown his off road motorcycle in the back of a weathered van!( Worst of the dents is too the nearside lower rear side panel )
So that's about all you need to know. it looks the dogs. runs superb. isn't rotten and will make you look cool if you are young or classy if you are old! On top of that it should increase in value and be an investment as everyone wants an old van and these are the last of the old fashioned classic looking vans and being from the 80's it has a decent powered engine and a five speed box which is reasonably up to travelling on todays motorways. unlike an old VW or old diesel or 4 speed Transit. They are out of the question anyway as they want 10 grand for a decent one. Buy wisely as this will be up there in the silly price band before long!
Mot December 2016.
Call me anytime on 07711 685242. but please note that I hate the " How much for cash. mate " types. I list at the price I want and won't take offers so don't waste my time and come and find faults and offer me less. Pull it to bits all you want. the price still remains the same. This is not meant to offend decent folk. just keep the idiots and time wasters away. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!
I am located on the outskirts of Blackburn in Lancashire. a few miles from junction 31 of the M6 or junction 6 of the M65.
Cash only and all notes will be checked. ( once bitten! )
