Cheap rhd Caravelle Westy conversion, with about £3 or 4k of metalwork pending pretty soon, plus paint.

You’d hope you’d be able to do some of that work yourself, seeing the pics. But even so, say £6k including the cost of the bus and you’ll have a pretty nice van.

Nice minter syncro just gone on - few cams though:

Gotta be the most expensive T25/T3 to date. Can’t remember seeing one for more - it’s got 9 watchers already so will be interesting to see if it sells.

I love that front flip seat - can we get those for the T25?

I don't think that's a Syncro- the filler cap is in the location for a 2WD. I think it's just had the gowesty prerunner treatment, so i would suggest at £28K it's probably overpriced.

Correct. Its a lifted 2wd California.

Does look very clean.

Wouldn't that price be in the right ball park for two vans like that?

I'm pretty sure I saw someone post one fitted in a T25 on one of the Facebook pages - I'll see if I can find it again

Well thats a relief eBay have just emailed me to tell me its been reduced by £2,800, making it a very very reasonable £25,200......

It’s an investment. And like most investments it will go down rather than up!
