    1979 Right Hand Drive Single Cab Pickup. £10,950. Macclesfield area. Years MoT to 4.12.2016
    1600 single carb engine. 54,000 miles - genuine from what I can see from old MoTs.

    Contact by PM for more details.

    I've owned this van for a couple of years now and many will have seen the expensive journey that it took me on -

    http://thelatebay.com/index.php?threads/berns-pickup.34728/

    It's a reluctant but sensible sale as we have 4 vehicles between 2 of us and this is the one that makes me feel guilty for not using it. Bought to satisfy the need to own one a bit of a project as well.

    Restorative work was carried out at 81a VW Service in Southport and included:
    chassis work - new outriggers and jacking points.
    Replacement body panels - including front deformation panel, new cab doors, inner and outer sills, floor repair panels, front and rear wheel arches, rear corners, engine lid, rear side complete panel.

    A quality respray was carried out up to the drop sides.

    Vintage Speed exhaust fitted. Cobra alarm. MCJ steering wheel. Retro stereo with subwoofer.

    I had 2 new covers made to the original spec in a red acrylic material. One is a tonneau cover and the other the tilt one - currently fitted.

    Things that will need doing at some time:

    Drop sides have been filled and there is some blown filler on the outside of them in places. They have been pumped full of waxoyl and are solid but also will need spraying to better match the rest of the van.

    Cab is pretty original, and therefore a bit scruffy. A new owner may want to replace the door and kick panels but it wasn't a priority for me.

    That's when I picked it up after all the work. I could keep it but it needs using and I'm not :(
     
  10. I know what you mean, we play musical cars all the time and usually the camper gets left in the garage..
     
  11. It'll only go up in value?
     
  12. Bern. That is a seriously cool looking pick up. DON'T sell it your regret it , because in 10 years they are probably going to be mega bucks
     
  13. I'd certainly use it...:D

    If you don't need the cash park it up you'll earn more off it than bank interest
