Mk5 Smiley for sale (sob)

Postby MK5meUpBaby » Sun Jun 27, 2021 12:53 pm

It`s finally time to sell my beloved classic Ford Transit MK5 Smiley after ten years of ownership. These great old vans are well known for their super strong engines (often called "The Bannana"because of the exhaust header shape) and great, simple to repair mechanics. Unfortunately they are also known for rust and this one does have its` fair share! I know I`m already talking to the converted but just in case younger members dont know em!

Tech stuff and specs--->

152907 miles at the time of listing (engine has just about run in now!)
MOT until 10th August 2021
10 years in my ownership + V5 in my name
New Lucas alternator just fitted
12,000 miles old clutch
High quality Bosch battery
3 keys
Ply lined rear and ply bulkhead fitted.
2 x spare wheels.

Starts first time every time. No daft electric windows or central locking to worry about and everything works. Drives absolutely fine.

Will need welding for MOT and many of the required areas are now marked up so you can see what will need doing.

Hate to sell her but I now need something faster for the next couple of years due to moving two houses half way across the country and don`t have time to get the welding done.
Come and take a look. Test drive (with me in the van) fine as long as you have proof of insurance or I can take you for a spin.

Van is in Bristol and is fine to drive home should you wish. I`d have no worries about driving her 100`s of miles with no fear of breakdown!

Need more photos? Please give me a call and I can send more to your email address.

Call me 01179856198 if you have questions and please NO TEXTS (it`s a landline and it does have an answer machine on if you don`t get an answer, wait for it and leave a message.

£1600 - Sensible offers may be considered. I`d rather sell to somone who really knows how good these old vans are and why they are worth saving than a local muppet that will just abuse it and throw it away.....

I`m no welder myself Mark but the last time I had welding done locally it cost £160 for 7 plates. The price will obviously depend on who you go to and so I wouldn`t be able to put a hard price on anything. Have a chat to your local welder. It does need quite a bit of welding but things like the wheelarches could just easily be filled if you are on a tight budget.

If you have any more questions it would be better by phone if possible mate.
