Our family van is up for sale.
It is an ex police T4 Mk1 registered in 1996 (last year of the Mk1).
The van benefits from factory fitted side windows and barns doors on the back, I have a tail gate which I brought to fit but never bothered happy for that to go with the van.
Current seating front is driver and twin and in the back and rare clip out rear facing single and a triple which can be made into the base of a double be. There are fittings and seat belts in the van but we never needed to fit them.
Body work is pretty straight for it age. There are bits of rust in places on the wheel arches (it a T$ thing) that I have rubbed down and treated just need a dry day to prim and paint them.
There is no rust underneath that would be a MOT problem.
Engine is 2lt 8v GTI petrol that has 227,000 miles on a 5 speed gear box. With current setup it returns 28 MPG more on a long run and does not attract the expensive of servicing like the diesels.
These engines are 8values and have a reputation for 300,000 miles plus and as it is ex police it will no doubt have been well cared for in terms of engine servicing and were often just changed if needed.
The engine has a stock 88bhp and pulls like a train and fair skips along the road.
Cam belt, tensioner and water pump were changed by previous owner at 206,000 miles. I have serviced every 6 months.
Wheels are Audi Fat 5's Alloys.
We are gutted to sale this van as it has taken us on ma lovely adventures but we can’t keep all of the VW’s we own.
This will make an excellent reasonability priced way to join the “VW Scene” and can be converted as you wish or leave as is
Current MOT till 29 March 2016 would be happy to put a fresh MOT on it but that would increase the price.
