This van was owned by a friend from new who used it for his car valeting business, therefore has never done any real work. I have used it as my daily driver and the condition is outstanding. In its current form its still a panel van however is ready to be converted to a camper should that be your desire, as the insulation and soundproofing and little cosmentic improvments have all been completed. The soundproofing and insulation is sigificantly better than a standard panel van.
It is a truly immaculate van. Not to be confused with ex works vans that have been abused then tidied up. Consistently does 600-700 miles to a tank and has been perfectly reliable as a daily driver. If you have viewed a few vans prior you'll appreciate the difference with this one.

In daily use so mileage will increase.
