The van was originally taken off the road because of an oil leak into the coolant. Then 'It wouldn't go', so maybe it's the head?
It last passed an MOT in 2016 at 111000 miles. the interior is good as it's been used by an electrician rather than a builder.
However there was a 'crunch' when I was jacking up the rear , so some sill corrosion , lets hope it's not too much.

The plan is  to fit a 1.9td  XUd engine and run it on veg, I've already run a Xantia for 60,000 miles on vegso should be Ok , I'll probably have to fabricate up an exhaust, we will see. At the present time I need to get it up on the ramp and check it out, it could be too far gone ( hope not). A bit of sill welding is OK.

In 2018 I did win a van on ebay, down in Devon somewhere for about a grand, when I emailed the seller  ' Can come weds, can you pick me up from the station' I got the reply "Sold it to a door knocker  1/2 an hour before the auction ended for £450. Sorry" so I became a bit sceptical/ despondant about vans a long way off, at least this one was 'local'
