Just in case it is of use to anyone on here, now is your chance to own an awesome C15. I've had it for three years or so (three MOT's anyway).
It is unlikely to pass another MOT without a fair bit of welding type attention to the rear end. This became more apparent recently when the dog released the handbrake (accidentally I assume) and rolled off in the van with me hanging onto the door handle - the subsequent impact to the nearside rear corner revealed mucho rust and necessitated some *great* repairs involving a hammer, cable ties and pieces of cut up oil can to act as an under wheelarch spray guard for the -now exposed- rear light unit.
Anyhow, the van starts, drives and stops - although the brakes are pretty tragic by modern standards, which is not unusual for a C15. It has an MOT until the end of August and it has been totally reliable in my ownership. When I first bought it I replaced the radiator, clutch, cambelt and rebuilt the rear axle (which involved making a huge spring compressor) so it may have some salvageable parts. I also replaced brake pads, discs and shoes prior to the last MOT.
The engine (152K) is fine, the gearbox is slightly noisy and becomes more so on long motorway trips. It has just completed a 2000 mile surf trip without letting us down and I have faith in its ability to trundle on until it is out of MOT. It is rusty and scruffy (I'll add pictures when I figure out how to).
It is in Cornwall, near St Austell so miles from most of you. It will be bridged on Saturday as its replacement is arriving and I have no space.
I have absolutely no tolerance for Ebay/Gumtree morons so it's offered here for a (possibly negotiable) £50 if you want it.
