I think that long term keeping the van makes sense.

Starting again with something else will cost more than you think and there's the whole going in blind again. You know what you have and what the issues are with it etc.

Stick I say, especially if it's a special bus.

Thanks for the input chaps ! It will be difficult to part with and I know it will be virtually impossible to replace but it's either sell or borrow cash to complete the house.

So, spend on Gungy bus or sell as is ?


Shit driver.

Sell as is. You wont get back the 800 or so on the touch up. That's a thing of love for a long term ownership. Also the new owner is better off seeing what rust etc there is.

A nice fancy paint job can hide all sorts. You know its fine, but the buyer will be wondering what's under it.

Good luck....just make a plan to get back into a T4 once its all sorted.

Thanks as ever David, it's a tough decision and one I'd rather no have to make but the house comes first.

May change my mind yet .....

I'm interested to know what you think its worth.

Also FWIW i don't think its rare at all. Mileage is low but what makes it rare?

Caravelle twin slider and barn doors makes it rarer than the standard tailgate and probably the multivan versions. Not many about as barn doors were a special order on the Caravelle.

As to its worth I don't have the foggiest so once Gungy bus has had a clean I'll stick some photos up for a guesstimate

Wait until late spring/early summer, then clean it up and flog it! You may think that having barn doors is rare, and there may well be less of them than tail gates for all I know, but IMHO it is definitely not a selling/buying plus point! Get shot of it, finish the house, moan about losing the van everytime you see one, and then when you afford/find a decent one again we'll welcome you back
