Wanted please

Post by Brainsparks30 on Wed Mar 30, 2011 6:45 pm

Greetings for the first time! I would like to buy a Hijet MPV rather than the standard panel van type, I rather fancy making a camper out of it, however I get what I get in the end. If you are in norfolk/East anglia this would be ideal for my viewing but would travel if needed. I would even consider swapping for my Escort van which is taxed and motd if anyones game.

I’m trying to be accurate so here goes:

It is an s reg, 1998, 1800cc, diesel 75 model. It has done 128000 miles. It has service history until previous owner. It has new tires, front downpipe, rear shoes and brake cylinders, recent service by me, new heater core, flush and coolant, new fuel filter assembly, new sills and common welding faults corrected, new steering wheel fitted as old one was scabby. Replacement starter motor. Ply lined, no bulkhead. Has tow bar fitted.

I just put on next 6 months tax, MOT until end September.

By my measuring:
Max height: 41.8'' from structural brace to ply floor.
Max length 57'' from brackets for bulkhead to rear of side panels, which leaves a bit to cram in awkward stuff and adjust seats.

Only faults known to me are: Corrosion/hole behind rear left wheel, passed MOT like that. You will probably need to whack a plate on that for next MOT. Power steering fluid seems to be leaking from reservoir hoses. Drivers door pin hinge a bit worn. And finally, the auxiliary/fan belt wants tightening, I bought a new one but not fitted yet.

If it sounds good, can I have your details too? Send a pm, we can fix a viewing for us.
