I bought this, saving her from the scrapyard. She did have a driver's wing but Muttley's started already! Sadly, the van was completely stripped. There's only the steering wheel in the cab! She has glass. (the drop glass had no tracks, windscreen is cracked), headlights and bumpers. Also grille, but it's a bit damaged. A trawl through the parts in hand tells me we have 90% of the parts needed. Call to Ralph already made!
There were no seats in the van. These are the best I could get, and luckily I have enough vinyl on spare passenger seats to repair the driver's seat. The van was actually a custom, but sadly as everything, including the wiring loom, has been removed, the van will be restored as a standard/Popular trim van. The donors we've got are both standard vans.

This is rapidly looking like ending up a minter. I trawled through a lot of parts today, and discovered A full set of sills A pair of rear quarters A pair of rear arch repair panels Sorry Ralph! From the two scrappers, a glove box and set of seat belts and a wiper motor. I think one of them will have a reasonable floor mat. I also have a selection of door trims in stock. The van will end up as standard trim, maybe a custom steering wheel. The only standard wheel I've found so far is a black phase1 wheel. I've found no less than three passenger seats in various condition.
Fancy a chinwag? This live chat box is just for you!
