Do I have the oldest/lowest miles T4?

Hi, My names Paul and I've recently joined T4 forum ( recommended to do so by Roger at Torbay conversions). I've had plenty of vans over the years but I currently have what could be the oldest/lowest miles van in the country. The van is a 1.9 TD and and is in great condition. It's registration is H469 SWG, and was registered 06/03/91,it has done 35,000 miles. I know this sounds incredible but it was used by the Department of Work & Pensions as an undercover surveillance van. It's been lined out inside and had a roof vent fitted to keep the air fresh during those long and tedious stake outs!. I've had it repainted and in the process of doing a mild custom job by fitting some 19'' 5 spoke alloys. I will post some pictures when it's ready. Does anyone know of a T4 older & less miles?? Interested to know. Paul

I think that'll be hard to beat Paul. Must be one of the first T4's out!!

mines old but not that old its a 91 with a whole heap of miles on it. i'd suggest doing what i'm doing at the mo. during the resto/conversion i'm keeping all my old bits that arn't completely knackered one they may be rare and worth something when people are trying to restore the modded vans in another 10/15 years time.
or maybe i'm just collecting junk! we'll see

I've still got all of my old bits - you never know what might happen.

Mine has done 12k miles but mine is an 03 plate I:
