"This beautiful minibus would make the perfect hotel or golf club transport… coming from a private collection, it is a very rare car indeed. Although these early minibuses occasionally appear for sale in Europe, we know of no other with the unique electronically operated passenger door. Employed as a school bus in its distant past, this lovely old girl has been used for weddings and recent film and TV work, details for which can be passed to the next owner. With 13 seats this really is the ultimate way to travel in classic style. Present is an original period brochure showing it is one of four two-tone colour schemes available from new. The original 55hp diesel engine has been replaced by a more modern two point four-litre diesel, coupled to a five-speed gearbox . In good overall condition cosmetically and mechanically, It is MOT, Tax and ULEZ exempt and comes with a number of old MOT certificates to 2018 with no advisories listed in recent years. Also present is the original sales brochure, service book, comprehensive parts catalogue, V5 and invoices detailing recent spend".
