    Go and look at Barry's collection, there isn't a tarted up one amongst them they're all original apart from one westy that's had a very good resto.
  9. I'm looking to buy my first van, I do have a '71 MGB roadster, so I do have some knowledge of what rot looks like, I've been sent these photos of a van that is someway from where I live, can anyone see anything here that should be be ringing alarm bells?

    Perhaps get someone who knows more than me to have a look at these areas

    If you wanna know what a good one looks like then obviously look above and also at johnluke666 advert in classifieds. That’s a nice underside.

    This welding looks a bit industrial

    The inner and outer sills look pretty gnarly, and there is some evidence of shonky welding hidden by underseal on the jacking points etc... depends how much its up for really.. if its cheap enough, buy it and fix it.
