With regret we are putting up for sale our beloved van.
2.0 Litre, twin carb 1977 GERMAN DISASTER CONTROL COMMAND VAN (LHD)
MOT till June 2012. Tax till Dec 2011. 92,500 km (approx 57,000 miles)
Registered in Germany in 1979 – hence W Reg. Purchased by us in September 2003, from Germany where it had been maintained and garaged by the German Fire Service. It is one of 112 manufactured and used as auxiliary vehicles.
This van is totally original. We have all the original German paperwork and details of the history and fitting out of the van.
The van drives great and has been serviced regularly, has recently been fitted with a new starter motor and electronic ignition.
Recently re-sprayed in original colour to maintain condition, (pictures available of pre spray) and has been fitted with all new window rubbers.
Has been wax oiled annually since purchase, absolutely solid everywhere.
The interior has original seats, cushions have been replaced with new foam and vinyl. There are two three point seatbelts in the rear along with two lap straps – ideal for families. The front seats have been replaced with a single and bench VW seat. Can seat 7/8.
The original cupboards were removed to aid visibility, but the van still has a lot of storage space, without compromising the number of seats. The floor is steel checkplate, hardwearing and easy to clean.
The van has an insulated body and an EBERSPÄCHER heater (which we haven’t used). The heater cables need replacing; we have them they just need fitting.
CD player/radio fitted and spot lights fitted in rear.
We also have a 3 bow roof rack available.
