Big Bertha is for sale, much to my sadness.

Have had some great times in this van, and am only selling it due to moving abroad in the new year.

Drives REALLY well and is mechanically sound. Lots of money spent recently, was looking to get it re-sprayed next year but hopefully someone else can give the bodywork some tlc. Or not, it's only cosmetic!

I will list the good points and not so good points.

Originally a 1.9td (ABL), converted to a 1.9tdi (AHU) from a mk3 Golf with 90,000 miles on the engine. The conversion was carried out in 2011, engine now has 163,000 miles. Never skips a beat, have been as far as Berlin in it, and all around Europe and the UK.

Re-Mapped to approx 120bhp

Stainless de-cat exhaust

Blanked EGR

Large front mount intercooler from Mercedes Sprinter

Upgraded headlight wiring loom with Osram night breaker bulbs (makes a HUGE difference)

New cam belt, alternator belt and power steering belt less than 2K miles ago

Also new oil cooler and rocker cover gasket less than 2K miles ago

Sometimes second gear can be difficult to locate. I've been told this is the gear linkage bracket, and is a cheap fix. However I haven't got around to it. It's only in second gear, and doesn't happen all the time.

Lowered 60mm

Black steel wheels in good condition, with good tyres plenty of tread.

Tailgate with glass (mirror tint)

Side windows tinted black, these both have scratches in the tint film and could do with re-tinting.

Clear front indicator lenses, smoked rear clusters

Chequered bonnet vinyl

Pressed German metal plates

The van had rust around the arches, and a couple of spots on the tailgate. These were sanded back and treated, which you can see from the photos. Like I said my plan was to have it re-sprayed next year.

The van has slight rust around the windscreen, and a couple of slight patches here and there. Nothing serious. When it was mot'd a couple of weeks ago the guy said it was a very solid example.

There are two dents in the top of the tailgate, and a large dent in the rear bottom corner of the passenger sliding door. It is a twenty year old van so please bear in mind that there are age related cosmetic issues. Again, nothing serious, just want to be honest and not waste anyone's time

Fully sound deadened, insulated, plylined and carpeted

Remote control dimmable LED lights in ceiling (currently not working, might just need new batteries in the remote. I will check this, haven't had the time)

Switchable downward LEDs in tailgate (working)

Custom vinyl print on roof inside (slightly marked from use)

Vinyl flooring (marked and scratched from use)

Full width Rock n Roll bed with memory foam mattress. In great condition and very comfortable. Made from heavy duty box frame with seatbelt mounts

Drivers captains seat with swivel base and arm rests (slight hole in the drivers seat, can't see it with the covers!)

Folding twin passenger bench seat

Engine dials upgraded to 99+ spec with blue/red LED dials. These read 193000 miles due to being from another vehicle.

Boost gauge to match red/blue LED dials

The heater control knob on the dash doesn't work, just needs a new cable. Heating works fine and you can change the temperature manually under the bonnet until the cable is replaced.

MOT until 22 Sep 2018 - advisories were:
Two chips in windscreen
Rear brake pipe corrosion
Slight corrosion to rear underside (he advised treating with black sealant paint, and mentioned how solid the van was)

I've been as detailed and honest as possible with the advert, and can provide more photos on request. It really is a fantastic van and I'll be sad to see it go. Any questions please get in touch
