This was advertised on various places including Gumtree and it disappeared between Sunday night and today when I went to check on it.

Distinctive features

Twin slider
Front door have four pop rivet holes where the pods have been removed. Did have big bumpers on but these have been replaced for regular ones.

Had a recent slave cylinder on the clutch and water manifold

Advanced conversion fitted with lots of reading lights in the back and a neon.

Engine seal was incomplete.

Headlights were wildly out of aim.

Syncromesh was going on 3rd gear.

Tailgate has 2 grommets where the wiper and washer should have been.

Tailgate glass had a Bilbos sticker on it.

Caravelle sliding windows in both sliding doors.

Please call me if you see it 07881 493812 . Chris

It's Chris who's placed the advert Andy to try and get some info on where it is..
 
But then again with it being eBay it's not strange to see that 2 dickheads have made offers when it clearly states the van has been stolen.Wacko

Seems it wasnt the only one - since the newspaper article I got two mails claiming to also have vans stolen. I was a blue /white high top reg G483 SAU which was stolen on the 17th or thereabouts. This was around 0.5 mile from where mine was stolen. The second was a Swift motorhome , taken a couple of miles away. I will post up a description of the VW if the owner wants me to ( I am waiting to hear). If you are parking your van in North London - lock/clamp/track it.

where did you end up? Did you get a pay out? Did you replace it? Do you still mourn it's disappearance? Do you need closure? Smile

I didnt claim as was told it wasnt worth it compared to the loss in NCB.yes it still hurts that it was pinched ,compounded by a second van going 3 months later ,a much nicer one to boot.So I moved housd because of this . And yes I have an 87 club joker.
