Ooh, another link asking me to join the Facebook.. :?
Meanwhile, on a site that does allow people to view content, this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1939-Allis-C ... 4663342720 seems like a potential candidate, but it's too wide for the van and too far off to drop through for a quick viewing.

New you say? Hmm, must look that up some time. Is it as true to the real thing as BMW's Mini tribute turn is to a BMC mini?
:lol:

It's different I guess.. From the cab forward. But as a tribute to an original H, the Japanese "tribute" vans are, IMHO, less difficult to look at.

..Or not. :|

That's just a ruined Kei van, poor wee thing. OK, I give in, the new Citroen isn't that bad, but the unspoiled, Fiat Ducato badged version of the same is the one I'd be choosing if I wanted another van on the fleet.

If i was forced to choose id go with the Japanese one.. we had a new Citroen jumper van and i wasn't impressed.. even the factory chocolate roof rack bent when attaching the ladders.. in comparison to an old worn out smiley transit i still prefer the transit...

:drool: :drool: :drool: in fact.. But then I looked at the VOSA history and it seems as though the car has been very well acquainted with welding and welders.
At the price, I'd log in at yahoo.jp and bid for a JDM one that may lack the shine, but I'd sooner not risk someone else's repairs to the historic rot.

It may of course have had every area of rust removed to the correct joins and may equally well look like its Thatcham slide (sadly available only for the earlier, less squared off model) underneath, but in this age of "click & collect" proxy buying, I'd give it a swerve, even if it were suited to my particular needs, a thing which only trying to get into and out of it would determine.

No denying that it looks good though, so someone will doubtless buy it and then do the worrying. ;)
