Real shame to let this one die, it would make a great show van, someone must know.

often that's not a bad place to start from with a total resto or customisation. If you were putting her into a commercial workshop and paying by th ehour, then obviously it will take £££££s, but MadVan Man is more than capable of putting her back to her former glory!

after looking round 3001 i dont think its beyond repair the windscreen it the worst bit but chassis wise its quite solid (rear axel mountings will need strengthening), just got to make arangements with the current owner and organise transportation.

You only need two tools in life: WD-40 and Duct Tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the duct tape.
