As above an old smiley van which is a gen low mileage ordeded by the manchester council for a forman with a bad leg then went to Edinburgh for a guy with a bad leg, then me just as a camping and motorbike van.

Anyway last October the MOT ran out and I just kept it on the drive way, still is. It needed £700 worth of welding so that was that.

So I remmenber back a good few years now here on the fourm folk were looking for auto gearboxes if there are still anyone wanting a good auto box here it is.

If anyone wants it I am in Bathgate near Edinburgh it would be a shame to send it to the scrappy in the end.

If there is interest I will get some pictures up but you need to be able to collect from Scotland.

There might be some pics around here still from old meetings out at the Stirling pub we used to meet at. its a Green 150 van with semi high top roof and 6 stud axles for 1.5 ton load, also a side door, it was a special order at the time from Manchester council.

Cheers

Bill

When you send a PM, it will sit in your 'outbox', until it's been read by the recipient, when it will move to your 'sentbox'
So, if it's gone from your outbox, then it has been read :)

As it looks in good nick and is the much sought after SWB 150, even with no MOT that would probably make at least £700+ on ebay I reckon :wink:

This one made nearly £4000 with an mot!!** eBay auction listing blocked. Please enable cookies in your browser for this site and for eBay! **

yep pretty much just the same as mine appart from an MOT.

Im quite happy if mine goes to a good home, I cant weld and no covered facilities so I would have to spend on open ended body shop work.

My van in this listing is waiting for lockdown restrictions gone so campervan man can come and collect it from Bathgate in Scotland, we agreed a sale.

I think we are nearly there now so it should be soon, assuming all is well.

Im looking around for a replacement van now but automatic vans in my sort of £5000 price range are rare, some ex police sprinters but mostly huge ones, im looking at something the around the same size as my transit.
