So really I have no valid reason to sell this as it’s exactly what I need, it’s cheap to run (52mpg to Lincoln in August) cheap to tax (£13 a month) and generally doesn’t go wrong. But! I want a mid sized van and cash is what I need to buy one. As I have the Lupo project ongoing I need to one in / one out.

I bought it earlier in the year from a mate who was in the army. He left and went on the rigs, and as the MOT was up while he was away he sold it to me. He bought it in Germany whilst working over there, it was originally used by the CO of a catering regiment and he brought it back. As such, it’s solid except for some bubbles on the drivers wing. Pretty common as it’s a dirt trap.

So I’m the third owner. Upon buying it it needed a front caliper and spring. It had two tyres and full brakes just before I bought it (with receipts) and I’ve done the front two brake flexies, another caliper on the back and some other bits of routine stuff including a service (oil and filters). All the bleed nipples have been replaced, handbrake cables oiled and the crappy rubber coating removed from the interior dials. The headlight adjusters snap but a guy on eBay 3d prints replacements and these have been bought and fitted. Back lights and boot hand have been sealed up and the boot is dry.

Bad bits are the back seat leather is showing a fair bit of use, at some point the drivers side wiper has had a bush come away, making it drop and someone shut the bonnet so there’s a sort of dent below it. The headlight wipers are in the back of the drivers seat, I just never put them on.

MOT advised a ballpoint was borderline and the drivers track rod end was stiff. Front tyres will want changing within six months I’d say.

He’s confident it had a clutch and a timing belt when he brought it home but I can’t find the receipts in the pile. Upon inspection the timing belt isn’t shiny or cracked and looks pretty new, clutch doesn’t slip. New aux belt and it had a brake fluid flush two weeks ago.

No oil leaks, coolant is green and clean and apart from the above it’s a very clean car.

£650 for good solid economic motoring for a year

And yes! I’d consider a swap for a van (I want to convert one for a camper for festival season next year so mid sized, connect / dispatch etc)

Can meet at any train station or Glasgow airport.

To add, I really would like to sell and save myself the hassle but would also roffle for £11.50 a ticket with £25 going to the forum coffers if there is interest.

That looks really nice. 

 

Might be worth you adding a "for sale" tag to your post. I think if you edit the original post, then go to full editor you should be able to add it. Makes it stand out a wee bit.

V40s are great cars in a no nonsense sort of way. Had ours for about 7 years and will probably keep it forever. Would never claim I love it but it does everything we've needed it to do. Would recommend, GLWTS.
