which t25 REALLY needs a syncro conversion?

Postby hugomonkey » 24 Mar 2014, 16:23

I was wondering what kind of t25 would be crying out for a syncro conversion and what the aftermartket value would be for a van thats been converted,would it go up or down?,would there be any insurance issues? would anyone buy one or would everyone run a mile? they seem to be very popular in the US so what about in the UK, i´m thinking like bluestar´s, whitestar´s ,lle´s and of course campers like dehlers and gypsy´s
:ok or :run

The carthago is a nice camper, don't see many 4WD's. As for buying one, if i had a choice of genuine or 'made' i'd always go genuine.
Making westy syncro's would probably be the quickest sellers, but maybe not the most profitable?

Hmm, interesting. How extensive would the shopping list have to be for a project like that? Also the cost :(
I've never seen a California syncro, it would be cool 8) , but I suppose in some peoples eyes It'd never be a real one

My Myrtle :D totally biased of course and of no value to anyone else, but a very solid van and cheaper than buying a wrecked "real" syncro :shock:

Syncro Westy hi top gets my vote. The original is as rare as rocking horse poo, remember the unicorn? But as a practical camper it takes some beating, and the original fittings require updating, ie 15/16 " wheels ,Waeco fridge, upgraded charger, solar charging, all would be sacrilege on an original.

i think that 99% of the people that would do a conversion would do it because they know how much time and effort they´ve already put into their own vans and how much they´ve already invested in it, it really is just a kind of an upgrade like a TDI engine conversion

OK, completely off topic (sorry!), this was my Myrtle the Turtle, due to her top speed... offroad ability was already taken care of though :D
