The heaviest stock Syncro van is a Westy hightop Club Joker with 1.6TD engine with an unladen weight of around 1860kg.

The manual (courtesy of westfaliat3.info) gives an unladen weight for a Doka of 1595kg, and for a high top panel van as 1590kg. You need to add 15kg to that if it's a turbo diesel.

P.S. You do know that rust is approx 60% heavier than steel :mrgreen:

It sounds like there's a certain amount of economy with the actuality in that statement :-D

I think you'll have a tricky MOT - it looks like there might be excessive corrosion within 30cm of ALL 'prescribed areas'.

If it was a splitty, someone with deep pockets would still “restore” that.

It'll be fine, keep it another few years and it will be MOT exempt.
