53 plate Animal

#1 by autosportdevelopment , Wed Aug 27, 2014 7:27 pm

I'm sadly going to have to sell my truck.

Black and silver with a Mitsubishi canopy. It had some head work before I bought it a couple of years ago and has just been serviced. It passed its MOT about a month ago with only an oil leak (Rocker gasket according to the service mechanic) and "vehicle structure has some corrosion" as advisories. It's done 126k. I'm not sure what its worth but would be open to offers, otherwise it's part ex time.

The lacquer on the bonnet and roof is flaking a bit and on one rear tub side. It drives well and tyres are pretty good.

Any rough ideas on price would be welcomed and if anyone's interested pm me. the truck is located in Somerset. I'm looking for a lwb Vivaro/primastar/trafic or swb transit.

cheers, Rob.

Thanks. That's the conclusion I've come to. I've found a transit and am looking at a couple more tomorrow.

Don't get a Transit unless it's the older shape, the new front wheel drive ones are nothing but trouble !! Get a Mercedes Vito. ;)

I need to get an 8x4 in and don't want it on the diagonal so that means swb Transit or LWB any of the vivaro clones. I'm not keen on the Vito and with the lower roof that makes the 8x4 thing even harder.

I'm off to see a 55 plate swb transit with 55k on the clock. Great photos but we'll see.

Thanks for the replies.
