**July 2024 ** JUST IN TO STOCK** RHD AUTOMATIC Australian import back in for sale

The owners have out grown the van after 11 years,  it and we are offering it on sale again.

The bus is a very clean and original  paint Australian import. Found by us on a buying trip to South Australia back in 2009 when it was still possible to find such amazing examples with original paint, service history and low miles. but still not every van was this good, so when we found gems like this we got them on the boat to the U.K.




previous owner purchased from us in 2012, we removed the original immacualte interior and created more open rear space. The family had 4 kids so wanted more flexible seating and sleeping space for 5. This bus is rust free and in original paint ready to go now.

in 2012 we carried out the following work, the van hasnt been used heavily since and always stored in a barn:

  • removal of all windows
