There little point putting rubber bump stops on, as the metal section that is required for them to touch has been cut off the chassis prior to painting.

Its unusual for them to have been removed on a bus with stock gearbox, hence curious why they've been removed.

Without the bump stop in theory you can have metal on metal at the end of travel, rather than a rubber stop sitting in its receptor.

All you really do is get a valuation done on the van, the SSVC offers this service, it's not wise to value a can from pictures, you need to see and feel it in the flesh so to speak.
Like Hawkeye Jim said, funny the bump stops are gone, you wonder what else s missing, from the pics it looks a good straight van, but when or if your paying top dollar then originality comes into play, not saying someone wouldn't give you your asking price, it's just you limit your market.

Hi ron appreciate that originality brings top money this is a restored van to a high level of quality as in there is no rot or rust which to me when building was very important

I totally agree tho that originality is key to the value

I built this for the wedding car market so the interior is built for that ..

But thanks for the comments

Supose its like everything its only worth what another man would pay for it

Cheers steve
