Starts & runs sweetly, drives as it should with no tightness from VC.

The bodywork is good, mostly original with some evidence of having had some paint on the O/S some years ago. The seams are solid as are the sills, the gutters, sliding door etc. The cab steps are solid but will need some attention before any real rot sets in. Its 30 years old & genuine. The front panel has crazed paintwork. If it was freshly painted you could worry what was hidden. Its been stationary for a few years as i have other projects on the go so the paint needs a polish & the brakes need using.

Inside is a blank canvas, there are rear seatbelts but no seats, make it what you want.

Obviously this is a rare beast, mechanically sound having spent ££ with those who are the best at what they do.

If you know your T3's and Syncros then please feel free to message, if you are deciding between this & a Dazam bongo, please dont. This needs to go to someone who aspires to owning a 16, NEEDS a 16, dreams of a 16. They dont come along often and hand on heart this is a good one.
