1959 Single Cab • SOLD

Just in today, this beast needs to find a new owner. To be honest we'd like to keep it and slam it up with a big engine and 17-inch Fuschs, it would look phat! But, with five full resto's on the go we just have to let this baby go.

So let's give you the low down, both good and not so good about this van. Firstly, it doesn't need an MOT, so no scary garage bills every year. The rear bed floor is in mint condition and the drop sides are in a very good state too. The roof, chassis rails, engine bay and original engine lid (not shown in the photos) are all in good condition.

The not so good details are that it needs a lower half front panel, outer sections of the front cab floor and inner and outer sills. But the thing to remember is this is a 54 year old van and we're amazed just how good the bed and drop sides are as these parts are usually badly dented. In a nutshell, a weekend's work fitting an engine and overhauling the brakes and steering will get it on the road. Use it as is or restore it to your own taste, it's a classic.
