Looks good!
Notice it has a long-nose front on it... Thought only caravelle's had those?
Will that be a recent upgrade, of did late vans have em too?

Think they just fitted what they had near the end of the production run, seen a few 888 specials for sale and they all have the caravelle front end???


anyone got any ideas?

its was put on all later vans(not sure of the dates, 2000 on or sumat) it started on being used to get a bit extra space for the vr6 engine, think the model designation was t4a-short nose then t4b-long nose.

also 1200 on altenator and clutch? sounds steep!(ive no idea of costs btw) but it looks like a nice motor. keep an eye on the regional meets for the up and coming cumbria meets if you fancy poping along, dunno where you are but they tend to be in the north(carlisle) but we should get around abit more next year tho:ILU:

Yes you got bargain there.

The long nose van was the 888special Xpack and was put on the last run of T4's in 2002/2003 cost 500 more for 1500 worth of extras and also the long nose front which was never previously available on the van. Concidered by many to be the most desirable and rarest model.

Well done *<:-)>
