Mk3 vin plate question please hurry

Postby bobbari123 » Sat Aug 12, 2017 4:29 pm

Hi!
I have been looking for mk3 bus, and now i have found one but i'm not sure that it has been originally a bus version.
Can i see that from the vin plate?
Seller send me a picture of that.

A mk 3 won't work using reg on etis, the vin will give a small amount of information. Etis only really came on line from 1991

I'll guess that typ box in vin plate is telling is the car has been with rear seats or van.
If someone knows what those types mean

yes i checked the etis and this is all that it tells me:
Transit 86
Primary Features
Build Date: 08.02.1989
Vehicle Line: Transit 86
Interior Fabric: Interior Environment

i´ll guess there is no way to know if the car has been with rear seats originally or not?

A lot of buses were aftermarket conversions anyway, so wouldn't show up on ETIS.
Does the V5 say it's a bus M2 :?:

I don't know about the Mk3, but the Mk4, & Mk5 SWB factory built buses were 115's, and the vans were 80, 100, 120's etc.
1997 Mk5 SWB 115 Minibus 70ps Di (Gone, but not forgotten!)
2004 Mk6 SWB T280 Medium Roof 85PS 2.0 TDDi - Vantunered
2008 Mk7 SWB T280 Medium Roof 85PS 2.2 TDCi - Also Vantunered
