1956 RHD Double Door Panel Van. SOLD

Post by DETROITPISTON »

Well here goes after 17 years of ownership!!
Early January 1956 RHD Double Door Panel Van. Dove Blue.
Possibly the earliest RHD DD non barndoor registered in the UK.
Fairly standard exterior, nothing outlandish to mention, deluxe trim on early bumpers.
Now fitted with dual circuit CSP wide 5 front disc brakes.
Twin carb engine, just shy of 1800cc.
Lowering adjustor fitted on front beam but not used, currently stock height on original wheels.
Extra rear lights attached inside the hatch but they could easily be removed(i wouldn't bother personally).
Discreet immobiliser fitted for insurance.
By all accounts a very rare vehicle.
Price:- £30,000.

I'll try and upload some decent pictures when i get a chance although i'd imagine any interested parties would be more keen to see it in the flesh.
Pm if you need any more information.

other option to load pics is to click the "post reply" button and have the pic folder on "half screen" at the same time.

then click on the little version of the pic and "move" it accross and drop it into the reply box.

when you have done this there is a new part tothe page that opens under the reply section - which is often out of sight. Scroll down and you'll see the "list" of pics you drag across (9 at a time is max i think)

get the cursor where you want the pic in the reply box and then click on the luist ( i think it says up load)

Trying with the latest suggestion.
Two pictures are in the list as attachments so here goes.

EDIT: No pictures have appeared!!
They were on the list of attachments. I've just re-checked what went wrong and i didn't have the option to upload or insert file, only delete file.

Yes, that's what i was saying, I didn't get the"Place in Line" option box, only the "Delete" option box.

Do you have to have a certain number of posts on the site before you can upload pics or are there any other account limiters??

Do it like the first suggestion in the screen shots above. It really shouldn't be this difficult.
