Seems bloody expensive to me. And LHD? It's not like it's a 16".

Also, from the pics looks like some dubious overspray in seam rash areas?

I must admit.... It is a tad on the pricey side...
But if it is as solid as he says then it's not too far off the mark.
I personally wouldn't spend that much without seeing it. Videos and pictures are great but you can't beat standing there with a magnet and crawling around underneath.
Maybe have a chat with Jason (hugomonkey).... He might have something similar for sale soon and would be for less money I would have thought.
Cheers

you'll struggle to fit a low roof to that, it is a factory high top, structurally different around the top to compensate for the lack of steel roof.

I agree I was speaking with the seller about this van for a friend...looked at all the pics and thought too much for what needs doing. Considering cliffbases's yellow syncro was up a few months ago for £9,500 with a westy pop & interior :shock:

I've got this for sale with a new danish MOT ( i need to finish putting it together) for 4500 pounds , not a show winner but a good and cheap way to start your syncro journey

Thanks for all the input people ... I've decided to hold off on this one, not least because my westy failed its MOT, which means I've had to delay the sale of that

Rob -- let me know if you're really thinking of selling yours, as a pop top is what I really need for the kids

Cheers, James
