You have to keep it together, no compromise .....
Good luck with the sale, you will sell, if I was still running my shop I'd take it in a flash, right money too.

That Caravette interior is worth a lot!
Hourglass cooker, gas light.
Rear slider cupboards.. high level cupboards in the rear table holder!
I would say that was very early 62.. if not 61. have you checked the VIN code..Build date from the mcode plate?
Very very nice. The interior is worth at least 1/3rd of your asking price..

I am sure the interior is correct but was asking to see the dates that this interior was fitted. I am sure it is 61/ early 62 period.
I have a 62 Devonette!

Yes that may help G but he would like to know the year the wood was cut, direction of grain, thickness of lacour etc.
G is trying to tie up all interiors cut from the same tree, he's a serious Devon addict, I'm surprised he doesn't live there to smell the trees........you need to be carful of the oldie who goes around smelling stuff....😂
