Completely original and unique UK 1972 RHD van.
This beautiful early bay is in fantastic original condition and is simply stunning. It has never had any welding undertaken and apart from a full bare metal repaint, is un-restored.
The whole vehicle has been dismantled and subject to a nut and bolt rebuild, with only bearings and bushes replaced where necessary, and then reassembled.
Mechanically perfect, the original engine is 1679cc and has undergone a cylinder head rebuild. It still retains the original twin carburettors. All of the mechanical components are like new, retaining in most areas, their original paint.
The interior of the van has been converted into an 8 seater mini bus. The quality and craftsmanship of the finish is fabulous, with the feel of a 1950’s aircraft, and is in immaculate condition.
This vehicle is supplied with an alternative, bespoke interior that was fabricated for wedding promotional purposes. Other than for photographic use, this is new and unused. Crafted from wood and with silk upholstery, this option is a simple fitment that replaces the two standard rows of seats.
A superb addition is the bespoke full length roof rack. This has been made with solid Teak slats and has an integrated access ladder which slides out on tracking and locates into fixed brackets on the rear bumper.
