it is a bit vague....

"THIS INCREDIBLE ORIGINAL UNTOUCHED MINI VAN IS UNDERGOING A CAREFUL RESTORATION TO KEEP AS ORIGINAL AS POSSIBLE"

Presumably, then this means this is the restored price ?

Maybe they are hoping someone will leave a hefty deposit to help with cash flow during the restoration.


I like the look of the Audi 80 next to it.

I had a gander at the other things and spotted this, don't tell Rich though as he might have to sell a kidney.

Total loony!
Looks like they’re fishing for a customer to pay up front for the work on that van. Sounds strangely familiar! ;)
Run a mile I say!

A brace of early vans from the same seller:

I'd rather have that Mk2 van than the £24,000 one advertised elsewhere. The 'base unit' seems to have been exchanged on the 63/64 van at some point for a 66/67 judging by the ribbed roof....

Reading between the lines looks these vans were previously owned by a member of this forum
