I think that it is probably best to remove this add and start a fresh to advertise your new venture
It's obvious this bus has issues
Do you view the vehicles you buy yourself ?

I'm sure if it didn't require £1000's spending seller would MOT and sell registered and ready to go. Just requiring cosmetic work.

That's true....I hate to say it but all I can see is a lot of rust and filler for 10500. And that's what you can see!

I'll be blunt, its not worth the cost of the shipping,its bent as hell,covered in crap welding/bondo.
Cut the rear torsion housing out,take all the non knackered bits off junk the rest and save your reputation from the get-go,who ever buys this will be dissatisfied and will land you in trouble.

I have to admit I have only just joined after seeing this add..I love ssvc and love seeing what's being brought in from overseas. I myself have shipped in a fair few from USA and Brazil. I had to comment on this add because Iv seen buses in this type of condition many times and could of picked them up for peanuts.....However didn't bother because I knew how much money and time it would cost to try an straighten them out. You need to look at theses buses in the flesh before buying. I hope you're new venture goes well because searching finding and importing buses is a great business especially when you have happy customers. However your description wasn't great, the bus...well pictures speak for themselves and the price.....No idea where that figure came from? Maybe because it's right hand drive....but I wouldn't want to insult you with what I think it's worth. When searching for buses to import there's keepers and leavers get this right and hopefully we may see some nice buses from you. I wish Good luck with your new business but you need to re evaluate this add. I don't mean to troll as people call it but this add shocked me!

I wouldn't want to entertain how much this bus would need to make it good again. But it would be 1000s of pounds and hours.

All

Following the many comments on this thread I would like to have been able to delete the original ad and re-advertise in a different manner

However I cannot see how to remove the ad, although I did send a PM to moderators??

Either way I have now updated the original advert.

Please - if you wish to talk about the bus, call or e mail us.

Hi All, this bus was sold a few weeks ago after the first viewing via this listing.

The buyer was not a newbie and is currently in the process of stripping and rebuilding the van.

We should have another split on its way soon, again a RHD bus and not a fleetline.

Watch this space and ill get some pics and info up on a new thread once we have everything in place.
