Hi all and thank you for accepting me into the forum. I have a 1989 Asquith Mascot which is based on a mk3 Transit chassis and is powered by a Pinto 2lt engine. I hope there is enough Transit in it to qualify for this forum.

Blimey Dave, blast from my past, I got asked to take a van version(no windoes in sides) away from a dry rot company who used it to advertise their business, I sold it for £300 to a local garage who were gonna fix it up and use it to advertise their garage, but they left it siting there for years and then I heard they scrapped it!

Does your's run and drive and on the road?

Hi Chug, I got lucky with mine, the chassis and undercarriage were in great nick. I had the brakes, tyres and engine overhauled and she sailed through the MOT with no advisories. There are only 35000 miles on the clock and she runs and drives a treat. I'm a little worried about the new E10 fuel though so I'm looking at LPG for both the engine and cooking etc.
The bodywork is all fibreglass and the window frames are teak so no rot there to worry about.
Once LPG is sorted I'll be finishing the inside from the bottom up. I've already raised the roof and grafted on a Danbury pre-formed top so there is standing room in the back now.
