Great wee vans. I passed my test in one

Somehow the Bedford/Vauxhall thing has stuck tho, and after a run of HA/HB/HC Vivas we're still on Astras, with the newest one (number seven!)coming home in December

Trouble now is that there's so little you can do yourself, unlike the the 'Yellow Peril' you've got there. Change the gearbox? Na, this one's even got electronic clutch and gearshift!!

Ian baby....my pal gave part of it a quick blow over with his spray gun the ladder rack is missing and may be a bit of racking from in the back but apart from that its all good.I would say its one of the best I'v seen regarding rot....theres non on it or any welding been done or needed.They are comanding quite a good price now here in not so sunny England,as for price I have seen ones in similar condition to mine go for 2k plus.In the 80's you could pick one up for 30 quid to go pinching coal in the miners strike of 84

Lovly looking van there LS

The Decorator who does one of the Neigbours houses has an imaculate dark green one.

There are a number of EX PO and GPO vans (mainly Morris) at the HCVS Meeting held a Harrogote in August after the Transpenine road run. theres an owners group for them that has a stand and variouse PO vehicle related memorabilia on sale.
