it's that rotten it's strapped to a pallet for rigidity.


No, it's strapped onto another floorpan/bulkhead and then onto a pallet.

I like how defensive he gets at the prospect of you telling him it wants a dustpan and brush to take it away.

He not wrong though. I have scrapped much better stuff.

I really like the front chassis/suspension layout. I mean, obviously it's really old fashioned and having leaf springs as the upper wishbones really doesn't work all that well but it's such a nice, compact little package.

To be fair to the seller, he has dropped the price from £1,150 to a tempting £995 

 

However, I cannot buy anything from someone who says 'lol' in their advert.

Trust me, you won't have to. 3 camels cost at least 20 grand and nobody
is daft enough to trade this for a pile of shit that's even too bad
to be scrapped and a Nissan micro doesn't exist.

There is a fully intact mk1 York diesel Transit currently on the bay for £660, slight snag is it's in Malta, but even so, they'd ship it to the UK for another £550, and it doesn't look that rusty either, whether you would want one with a York boat anchor in the pig nose is another kettle of sardines

Blimey, thought that looked familiar, I've driven past it several times times and wanted to stop for a closer look, now I can actually own it.  Wow.  It took several passes over several weeks before I even worked out what it used to be.

 

*SNORT* Just seen the price.  Good grief, that's some weapons-grade optimism.
