Hi all im just looking for a bit of advice on how much a E reg transporter syncro would be worth its been parked up for about 6 years with head gasket problems i asked the bloke how much would he take for it but he wants me to make him a offer its a 1.6 turbo i think the body work is pretty sound and the under side any advice would be great :confused:

Well I guess you're talking about a T25 at that age. My Father-in-law bought one a couple of years ago for £3200 its got about 80Kmiles 2.1L engine Caravelle bit of a minter on the Body work side of things. He reckons he could sell it now for around 5K ish.

club 80-90 forum have a syncro section and there is also syncronauts

If its knackered you'll easy get your money back in bits! Diesel engine cheaper to work on than petrol boxer engines!

A syncro T25 with a blown engine is worth about £1000 at least! Even in bits that is! We stripped a £150 scrap van and made over £1500! But dont do that if the body is sound, get her back on the road!

ill defo be putting her back on the road mate just had a look and the cills need a bit of work had a quick look underneath and looks pretty solid but its been stood for about 6 to 7 years so i expect the brakes will need some work what will be the worse case if the syncro is knackered would it be worth fixing

£150:eek:

Why do things like that never happen to me! :confused:

Mate you've got yourself a bargin. A:

Do it up and enjoy it. There is loads of information on them on the Interweb. I had a T25 and I loved it. It was so much fun!

Good luck, Let us know how it goes! T:
