My VW van has just been declared beyond economical repair
Yes it could be done but we're talking the price of a small but comfortable cottage in the cotswolds with several outbuildings and a nice herbaceous border.
Think ahm gonna have to flog it but its just possible I may recoup my 1990 buying price of £2,495
Probably on the lookout for a replacement 1970s imported Californian or Sarth Effrican bay window van instead. The SA (and Aussie ones I think) come with right hand drive as standard
But generally -
Still have the 1967 Land Rover though
Do you weld?
Bays are a very simple vehicle to work on, if you have some space why not have a go at it yourself? Whatever you do don't sell it for a song, even rusted out carcasses fetch real money at the moment.
If only I wasn't trying to clear all our projects (read totally neglected vehicles I haven't got round to doing anything with..), I would love to take on a bay as a winter/summer/winter plan!
Is it still drivable?
The doctor diagnosed me with hereditary diarrhoea. I can't understand, I wear a kilt.
