1959 DOUBLE DOOR WALK THROUGH PANEL VAN SOLD

Post by harrisracing » Mon Jul 01, 2019 9:36 pm

1959 SPLIT SCREEN DOUBLE DOOR, WALK THROUGH, PANEL VAN, WITH FULL LENGTH SAMBA SUNROOF £20k

SOLD

SCROLL DOWN FOR FULL SPEC.

I’m absolutely gutted to be having to sell this bus. I have literally done all the hard work. But personal circumstances mean she has to go. I know most ads over use the word rare but how many early DD walk through panel vans do you see?

Obviously if you fit two sets of doors with windows you have a camper (that you can always turn back into a panel) if that’s what you desire.

Full on resto. Now very solid. No rust what-so-ever. Just needs painting and re-assembling.

All other parts new or reconditioned. I have 90% of parts to complete.

Professionally built 1916cc twin port engine with brand new 44 webbers.

Please excuse the crap pics but I have very limited space in the garage and studding for a garage door so not easy to get out! Pictures showing it painted all over in red oxide are the most recent.

I have included some older pics (with bare panels) from when I moved it a few years ago. Naturally I have hundreds of photos during the build if you wish to see anything specific.

Imported from California in 2010. All taxes have been paid. I have all paper work from HMRC to prove taxes have been paid (as well as the title and bill of sale). As it was imported before Nova it is not on the system. I have spoken to DVLA and told this won’t be a problem as I have all the relevant paperwork.

UK Sale only Please!

Yes it is complete but I'd rather it went as one with the bus to be honest. If the bus doesn't sell then I may sell separately.
