We are leaving the country. Hence this is the reason for the sale.
good on petrol due to being serviced, like a european 2.1 or 2.2 fuel economy. American are twice as fuel effeceint as european engines for the same size. Therefore quite reasonable on fuel.

The ball joints are OK, do not need to replace them. Still runs like it was brand new.
Please note:The bodywork on this was extensive, and includes a full bodyrespray with Fiberglassing to the roof which is made of fiberglass. The van had an inner bodyrespray as well, which means that paint was applied to inside of doors-no rust.
summary of work includes:brakes, tires, exhaust, suspension:sway bar links,new stabalizer
bar, new shock absorbers, suspension links and D-rings. Regular oil changes, and servicing such as gear oil, brake fluid,
fuel filter, and all the full service items:spark plugs, leads, oil and water change, air filter, and even special fuel economy items, 3 or 4 oxygen sensors have been replaced, only the one before the catalytic converter has not been changed. Also had all faults rectified, such as gear lever position sensor, 2 new window motors, a new window regulator, and new power steering pump. However, these last 4 items are only faults in 6 years owned, therefore exceptional example.
Total bodywork is about £2500, had entire respray incuding fiberglass to the roof. An inner
bodyrespray was done therefore no rust when looking inside doors. Window seals have been looked after when a bird flew into the side window. There is a skylight and airvent in the back.
The present price includes a redecoration, painted kitchen and door trim, an second thick mattress, and new appliances. If coming to collect, I need time to make sure everything else is tidy in it, and everything req'd is in it. There is also an extra driver's door if you want, which would be hard to carry.
Other servicing includes a new grill, painted front end, new lights at the front, and just had brake inspection, bulb socket lights, a tire rotation, and fluids topped up. Brakes are allright, no worries. It just went in for radiator water change and brake bulbs.
There are 2 extra seats and bases if you want to teke out kitchen and use it as a dayvan.
Note:it cost £15000 to date, and I would let it go for £5000, but no less. I am still spending money on it, it is going in today for underseal, oil change, top up water and anything else required.
