For Sale Section Rules

PLEASE NOTE! Postings in this section are deleted automatically after they have not been looked at for 30 days.

1) This section is for advertising items that you have for sale. Not for the discussion of listed items. If you wish to debate the pro's & Con's of any item listed, please start a new topic in the appropriate section.

2) Please DO NOT post links to your ebay auctions. This section is NOT for the advertisement of your ebay auctions.

3) If you have a number of items to sell, post them in a single ad marked "Multiple Parts" or similar. DO NOT post many individual advertisements as this forces everyone else's listings down the page.

4) It is expected that any items advertised on the forum are described fairly & honestly. It is the duty of the seller to ensure that this is the case.

5) Items listed for sale should WHEREVER POSSIBLE* be offered with a purchase price, not asking for bids from members. If you wish to auction your item to the highest bidder I would suggest you use ebay & pay the associated fees.

6) This section is offered as a free service to enthusiasts. Any deals made are between the buyer & seller only. The MK1 forum takes no part in any transaction & the appearance of any item in this section is not a recommendation. I strongly suggest that both buyers & sellers are happy to proceed with a deal before any money or goods change hands.

7) It expected that people posting items for sale are "Active Members of this community". Any Adverts placed by members with a post count lower than 5 will be deleted.

8) The advertising of or soliciting for VIN tags, log books or any other vehicle identification documentation without it's associated vehicle is expressly forbidden. Any member breaking this rule will have his membership terminated with immediate effect.

9) If a moderator considers any postings in this section to violate either the spirit or word of these simple requests the MK1 Forum reserves the right to delete any posts without prior warning or explanation.

10) The posting of items for sale on the MK1 forum constitutes explicit acceptance of these simple rules.

11) Members posting items for sale MUST include a rough location in their profile.

It would be much appreciated if sellers could leave the sale price on adverts after the item has been sold. This acts as a good measure of current value for other sellers.

* In some cases it may not be possible for the seller to list items with a sale price. In this case, listings will be reviewed on a case by case basis by a moderator. The moderators decision will be final.

1971 van SOLD

Post by Pandora »

Background and a lot of detail in the 'cars and projects' thread: https://mk1-forum.net/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=22288

The time has come to sell my much loved '71 van. For a variety of reasons it has been on the back burner, with no realistic signs of progress for the foreseeable future, so I have been very sensible and bought a '68 van that is up and running.

So, I'm selling as a project the '71 Morris van, registered in my name. There are a few bits I definitely want to put into the 'new' van, so I'll keep hold of the rear seat , the engine and box and probably swap the alloys on the yellow one over, and fit the steels onto the yellow one. I'll leave the S discs, the Servo etc on it. The back doors are really good GRP ones.

It needs half floors, sills, repair to the heel board and one rear wheel well replaced, and work on the load bed, as well as all the usual mini bits, but it is a lovely thing and when you see others on here restoring vans, it is a really good base to start from!

It's in Dunfermline, Fife, just north of Edinburgh, and will of course need to be trailered.

We all know that Vans are far rarer, more useful and generally better in every way than their common as muck Cooper S stable mates, so it's an absolute bargain at anywhere close to £5500 (but make me an offer - the worst I can say is 'no', OK, maybe 'F*** Off! No' but still :lol: )

It is true that the commercials are really hard to find, they were thrashed to death back in the day, and they are really handy as well as being 'Insta-friendly' to support and advertise your free range vegan artisanal beard boutique or coffee roasting community ethos driven co-operative.
