A very reluctant sale of my 1995 t4, I had planned to finish the van and convert the interior but a potential house purchase is forcing sale as I need additional funds. The van was originally a 2.0 petrol which I had professionally converted to 2.4 diesel in March 2017. The milage of the van is just under 131k, the doner engine has done approx 170k. V5 has been changed to correct engine and diesel. MOT till May 2020.

Engine

2.4 aab
Full service at time of conversion.
New clutch.
New starter motor.
Gearbox bushes replaced.
Re-enforced clutch pedal bracket.
Short shift mod.
Turbo conversion.
Manual boost controller.
Cone air filter.
Mitsubishi L200 TMIC.
Lower 0.66 fifth gear.
New cambelt and aux belt Jan 2019.
Oil change/new fuel-oil filter every year in my ownership,last change April 2019.
I would estimate the van is somewhere around 100/110bhp, it's certainly no slouch! 130bhp would easily be achievable with uprated injectors and 150bhp plus with lda mods to the fuel pump.

The van has been my pride and joy for the last 3 years and I have spent a considerable amount of money on it, especially on the mechanicals, the van has been 100% reliable since I had the engine swap and has plenty of grunt, powers up the hills and cruises on the motorways. I would of loved to finish it off but could really do with the extra cash toward my next house.

Bad points

CV joints have started clicking on full lock.
Surface rust in the usual places, arches, windscreen, above sliding door.
Inner front door sills require attention, will need welding.

I've tried to be as honest as possible with description. Viewing recommend as it is 24 years old, not mint but very presentable, definitely gets a lot of attention, apart from the listed rust areas it a good solid van that just needs a little bit more TLC and it would make a great van/camper. (Awning not included)

Reduced to £3500 ono
