    Mileage : 140,000

    sits nicely on the motorway at 60 mph..will do more but uses a lot more fuel at 70/75 ! 28ish to the gallon.

    starts on turn of key instantly every time even at sub zero temperatures we just had.

    History...

    18 months ago all the required welding was done on this van..and a load more.. new rear wheel arches, bits of floor..and anything else under there.. this was overdone to make it years before anything else would need doing. This van is solid underneath.

    was sprayed 2 years ago..so there is the odd scratch,etc..but nothing major..touch up paint included!

    All filters/oil, etc changed November.

    rear brakes all new November.

    I have 3 large boxes of spares from other T35's I have stripped..from wiper blades to fuel pumps,etc....and an extra spare wheel... will include all this with the van.

    Insurance

    I have it insured with adrian flux as a camper conversion.

    Price

    dedumdedum....I want this van to go to someone who is going to really get use out of it and care for it. maybe someone who really needs it.. £1600 ?..seems ok? so pm me if you think this is what you want and I'm sure we can sort something out.

    It is parked outside, clean inside and out and ready to drive away.

  • after a few pm's and a bit of thought..here's the plan. I am going to leave it advertised just here for a week. if after that it is not sold..or some other arrangement made.. then the dreaded ebay. (or I could just keep it :reddevil: :spank:)

  • Renault Master same as mine and it looks like it is in good condition.

  • I could probably stretch to £600 :whistle:


    Fuck me, that's exactly what I tried to turn my Toyota Estima Lucida into. Note, the Toyota ('surf bus') was an 8 seater car. Car. Brum brum BANG, too, that was the last I got out of that. But I slept in it during me honeymoon.


    Seems such a shame you're selling such a lovely item. Good luck, wish I was buying it.

  • Uh I am so tempted to spend all my student loan at once!!
    But then I'd have no food so that's probably not the best idea!


    I spent every penny i could muster to buy the Beasty (my new van) off Grahem back in Sept.
    It was soo worth the following week of baked beans :)
    It was n still is one of the best bargains i've ever had



    G you sell things tooooo cheap !


    I've seen G's work/style (bloody perfectionist :reddevil:)
    whoever buys the stealth is getting a damed nice van and the price ,absolute bargain.
