Mk 5 van wanted with a decent chassis

Postby adamstickman » Thu Jun 08, 2017 6:55 pm

hi there

i am looking for a mk5 panel van that has not rusted too badly
any configuration is ok - lwb or swb - high or low roof i am not fussy

preferably a runner with an MOT
but i don't mind mechanical problems - engine/gearbox/diff/steering/brakes broken i don't mind
high mileage will not put me off

if it has got a sound chassis,not disastrous bodywork and within an hour of leicester i am interested

please message me through the forum thanks

thanks for your interest everyone

i have bought one today (29/6) from a commercial vehicle auction so am no longer looking

if you are interested in what i got......

a hammer price of £1500 secured a one owner (council) LWB 150 with a banana engine and a towbar
59k miles, undersealed so not rotten underneath
a few minor rust bubbles and a rust hole in one wing

i was hoping to get it a bit cheaper but there was quite a bit of interest and one other bidder hung on after £1400

hopefully it will prove a faithful friend....
