1978 Mk1 Transit Ambulance *GONE*

Hi all

We have a Mk1 Transit Ambulance that is going FREE to collector for repair or spares.

I wanted to post on here before going via ebay or similar as ideally it would be nice for her to go to someone who is passionate about these vans and may rescue her as there are so few left.

It is important to know the van is not drivable and will need to be towed / trailered from its location in Bristol. It is currently on SORN

It had at some point in its life been used as a motorhome so is listed as such on the V5C. The interior has been stripped out, one side window has been taken out as it was broken. The van was a project that sadly has never got completed. The front tyres are both flat and need replacing. We put a pinto engine into the van a number of years back but and she was MOT’d and drivable but has been sat and hasn’t been running for some time.

We will be so sad to see her go as we think it would make a stunning restoration, but sadly we are moving and have nowhere to store her in our new house.

Now gone today I'm afraid.
Very sad to see her go but hopefully she will now have a new lease of life with someone else. Fingers crossed
