1967 ‘E’ plate very early bay Deluxe for sale

Built 21st November – This is a 1 year only model

I am thinking about selling my van so here are the details and pictures

This was imported from California in October 2008, I brought it off the importer in March 2009. It is a very nice solid original dry van the only bit of welding I needed to do was the battery tray. I have completely replaced the interior from a microbus to now a full campervan. All the external seals were replaced due to sun in California perishing them over the years. Underneath has been clear wax oiled so is not hiding anything, whist this was done also the inside of the panels / doors and cavities.
This van really is superb It took me and other half around Europe last summer for 8 weeks, covering over 6,000 miles with no problems (this is why I have a heavy heart selling her). Only one hitch was fuel pump died on the M25 coming home (typical), but it still got us home.
Colour is Savannah Beige, looks like it has been re-sprayed at some point in its life but the paint work is very good. Viewing highly recommended. All side panels are nice and straight.
The van is kept in a garage and has been since I have owned it, it is not really used in the rain unless when were away.

Bad Points
The usual few dents in the front panel but this just adds to the character, slight bubble on the rear corner, and the front lower arch has a small hole. But as you will see this is not detrimental to a van of nearly 43 years old. The van has not been fully restored as doesn’t need to be this is an original van.
