RHD Syncro caravelle

Postby PeteandNikki » 11 Nov 2017, 22:23

Just as the title. RHD Caravelle Syncro, missed out on a couple this year as I was bit slow off the mark but there doesn’t seem to be anything on the market now.

Best of luck! You do know that you are searching for the rarest version of syncro?
There were less rhd made than the coveted lhd 16" versions, barely 2100 or so worldwide.
If you really want a rhd syncro, I would buy what you can find within your budget because rhd brings all its own problems IME.
Having said that, its a waiting game and I have had to bide my time to find the right parts for my rhd restoration.
People are still calling time on their projects so something will turn up eventually, but take what's offered!

If I knew then what I know now...

SA buses: dry store immediately upon import, vacuum all of the red dust out of the shell (trim boards off job) then wash and hose out the chassis on a hot weekend. Dry and then wax the thing to death.
It will probably still rust in the damp UK climate though...

That's interesting, what year was the van built? When I brought mine over it was a December 92 registered in January 93 so dvla have it as a 92.
