You are forgetting insurance people sit in front of a PC that is never wrong & insurance company PC tells them that pre 2000 Tourneo does not exist thus they have to be vans converted. According to insurance company PC Tourneo was only built 2000--> MK6 even thou you can prove different their PC says NOOooo so they wont quote you. This rant is from experience of customers trying & failing to get insurance for pre 2000 Tourneos, while on the subject there also used to be a vauxhall midi 8 seat people carrier same problem again the PC did not list it so has to be a van converted only people who would insure it was Co-Op insurance 'as long as it was not a japanese import' funny when did Luton relocate to Japan
