Dear All,
My name is Marco, from Italy.
I discovered a camper van on a 1976 A 0509 P. I think it's the diesel V6. 3.5liters i think right?
Tha van is in very good condition. Not used for few years but left in a box so not outside.

What do you think? Are still spare parts available both for routine maintenance (oil filters etc...) and for extraordinary maintenance (water pumps, heads, and so on...?)

If in very good conditions with low mileage will i have to buy it? I have fallen in love with it!

Thanks in advance for your precious advices and hope you are all safe in these uncertain times!

Marco
