Original LWB VW T4 Caravelle 9 seats long nose in silver. Not a Transporter van T5 or camper

Un-modified Volkswagen Caravelle;. This is the sought after model. You only need a standard category B Licence to drive a 9 seater car, "You can drive vehicles up to 3,500kg Maximum Authorised Mass (MAM) with up to 8 passenger seats (with a trailer up to 750kg)." This still fits on the Red Funnel ferry as a standard car. The 2.5 straight 5 engine is the one to have developing 102bhp and enough torque to noticeably accelerate even at fast motorway speeds yet still yield 30mg on the island and 40mpg on a run. The long nose model was developed part way through the run of the T4 and was used on the Caravelle first and then on the majority of Transporters at the end of the production run in 2003 making this car look newer. This car was previously owned by a Taxi firm and used for airport transfers so it spent the first part of its life cruising along motorways. As a taxi it has had a much more stringent version of the MoT test every 6 months and as such has been maintained very well, this accounts for the high mileage of 208k. I have fitted the towbar to tow an empty boat trailer from Warwick and then tow my boat 1/2 a mile home. The 6 seats in the back are individually removable and fit in many different configurations. This is an ideal base vehicle to convert to a camper or use as a large family car. MoT until February 2016. £4495 Call James on 07545 938070
