Difficult to say really as it comes down to the van really, as they do seem quite scarce! Thinking around 10-15k for one needing work and 15-20k for one I can use straight away. Am I being realistic?

Had a quick look over the ex Karmann Konnection van on the weekend.Its the Turkis 64. Looks pretty good. Anyone have any info on it at all? I think it was restored 2014/2015.

Depends on the age / originality etc.

I’m now an owner!! I bought this from an advert on the forum.

https://www.ssvc.org.uk/phpbb/viewtopic ... 1&t=123252

A few little jobs to do but overall a nice solid van. It broke down on the way home so I guess I’ve been christened into the joys of split ownership! Unfortunately I didn’t check the fan belt tension before I left as the owner told me the bus had recently been fully serviced and I was keen to drive my new bundle of joy. 40 miles into the journey home, I stop for fuel. When I restart there’s a backfire followed by a tapping noise and no tick over so I ring the RAC and 24hrs later I’m home. YES 24HRS! Needless to say I’m not impressed with the RAC, but I absolutely love my bus!
