Its a sad day.


But this just isn't used no more, and to be honest looks a bit of a heap compared to the new 18 plate vans.


Corsavan 1.2 Petrol

2005 (55)


I thought it had the original engine, but apparently it had one at a year old.

Also had a speedo change a year or so back due to the ecu failing, so we swapped the immobiliser, ecu and clocks out. So shows 100k but is 200k All documented. 

Owned from a year old

Was originally Green, sprayed white at a year old.

4 x newish tyres, Hankooks I believe, tracking done recently, two tyres less than 500 mile old.

Full tank of petrol.


Mot Till April 2019


Will have the oil changed this week.


Had loads spent to keep it in good nick mechanically, anything that's its ever needed has been done.


2018 work includes: front pads, starter motor, inner track rod ends, drop link, coil pack and plugs, coolant sensor. Bulbs for speedo. 

2017 work includes: new exhaust, wiper motor, outer track rod ends, brake pipes, handbrake rebuilt, radiator, reverse switch., fuel pipes. 

2016 work: Front discs and pads, battery, rear brake pipes 

Also had in the last few years, a clutch, rear springs, abs rings etc etc 


Has a folder full of receipts to back it all up, we run a check sheet for vans so lads are meant to check the oil, lights etc every time its used. Drives bob on, has a scrape down both sills from lads driving over stuff, been rustproofed a few years back, no rust anyway underneath. 


Always had seat covers on so the interior is in good nick, its got some stories to tell this van, its been thrashed by everyone I reckon who has ever driven it, I had a memorable drive back from Kings Lynn to Derby a few years back when the brakes started to fade after a ' if in doubt flat out' type run home.


Engine is sweet as nut ever, these are a rattily engine but this is good, brakes clutch gearbox all sound, no knocks or bangs, good on juice, just a good van that has had whatever's needed doing.


Not sure what its worth really, but I know this hasn't been run on a shoestring and never been serviced, if anything its been serviced way more than needed, but then its only £25 for 5l of oil and £6/7 for a good filter and it takes like 15 mins to do and any other bits are dirt cheap.

Was that before or after tipping out the corpse wrapped in a carpet, Billy ?


That Corsa looks well fit, hope it stays around on here for while.
