  2. I say go for it ,I picked up our 79 panel van conversion van for £1000, yes it's a bit rough but I've seen worse go for a lot more, 20 people went to see mine before I bought it, I had to drag it out of 2 garages to load the thing, I had to take it home as I think it may have been lost if I hadn't bought it. Bought September hopefully finished by the end of the season, yeah right.
     
  3. Mine was £200, and yeah, I've spent a bit more on it. Probably runs me a couple of grand now.

    This is what it looked like when I bought it-

    It's all do-able, BUT the lower the cost, the longer you'll spend restoring it. The above has taken just under 5 years, 2 evenings a week and approx. 1 day a weekend. And it's still rough as all hell. Just consider the amount of money you could save up in that time.

    If you want to have a project, and make your own bus- if you are buying it for the fun of doing the work- then fine. If you want to buy a bus and use it sooner rather than later, save up.

    It'll sit in the garden for as many years as an old rust bucket van but will look much nicer and enhance the look of your garden.
