Why was there ever one Mitsuoka Zimbabwe Golden Showers, let alone five hundred of the fucking things?

Seller is a lovely chap. He imports all sorts of weird cack and sells it to idiots like me. 
 

But not this. This is silly.

1 owner from new and 29k on the clock!!! Phwoar. Petrol engine mind you, bet it does about 14mpg

it always pleases me when I see an old surviving commercial vehicle/van thats not been turned into a camper 

dont get me wrong I do like an old camper, but when it comes to old vans its rare you see anything other these days sadly

and sadly a lot of normal surviving old vans end up getting turned into campers, which is what I fear will happen to the above

Would like to win this listing, then refuse to collect because the bobbles on the vendor's trousers are playing havoc with my OCD

 

 

I'd swap that for my bini. Shame it's so far away.

That LT above is about the only thing that could entice me to buy a VW.  It's way overpriced, of course, but looks viable.  I, of course, would be delighted to keep it as a plain, slightly scruffy van (perhaps not as scruffy as it is right now).

That LT, will be a straight six petrol too, M.Boll is correct about the MPG, but they do make a lovely noise.

Despite possibly incurring the wrath of Billy, I wouldn't mind it like this - without the stripes..

Left as it is, it'd be great. In fact, it's about a thousand times better looking than that P6 estate which looks like it's had a 3 month bath in every department of the sodding Autoglym factory.

Given the other couple of scruffy ones being broken on the ebay, there must be quite a few mouldering examples still around. 

Sadly the ones still running seem to now be attracting scene taxation.

Pity it’s a 6 pot...

I rented a yellow one of these from a place in Wandsworth in 1985 and it sounded awesome, 14 mpg was probably a bit optimistic. There was snow on the ground that weekend and I think I went everywhere on full opposite lock, in fact I remember using it for general running around leaving my XR3i parked up., because it was so much fun. I asked for it a couple of times when we rented a van but inevitably got a nasty 1.6 Mk2 Transit

Anyone understand "timed auctions"?

Wow, the army only bought these ten years ago. The MoD are clearly managing their assets well and sell off a hundred grand's worth of truck for peanuts. A bargain though for the buyer - older MAN KATs are loved by wealthy adventure tourer types and the off road scene.

I'm probably their target market, I like hideous looking cars and would buy that (but not at that price) and paint it black.

Edit.  I've just learned that its full name is "The San Remo sports trim with suede effect bolsters"  How fucking Hyacinth Bucket is that?!
