A work colleague spotted this Mini van on a trailer on either 4th or 5th August. It was on the A11 heading north just after the M11 junction.

Anyone know anything about it ? Crap pictures but best his wife could get at 70 mph on a phone :lol:

Registration number could be YHC 139Y but not on DVLA computer ??

Looks like a local hire company trailer as I recognise the logo on it so doubt it’s our lord of the rings as he has his own trailers

Who was it a 'Service Van' for ??

Yeah his plans are to restore it back to how it should be, i think it was a private service van as the old guy who owned it (now in a care home) looked to be a mobile mechanic, the garage this was dragged out of had a 1954 daimler parked beside the van and outside there was my cooper a exremly rotten van, pickup, clubby estate and a metro plus loads of misc car bits engines etc etc. the van is rough but completely salvageable. i jut wish the old guy had parked my cooper in the garage rather than the van :lol:

Yeah, would have been preferable Liam, but I'm sure you can do the Cooper :)

To be fair HOY was parked in a shed for most of its 44 year slumber and that didn't do it too much good either....but then the shed gave up the ghost several years ago, which didn't help I suppose :roll:

What year is the van, the photo my mate took isn't too clear.
