H&H are indebted to the vendor for the following description:

'This lovely little A35 Van was originally registered in the South of England on 1st August 1962 and benefits from the larger 1098cc engine (the characterful commercial could also be had with 948cc and 803cc powerplants). Little is known about its early history, but having been treated to a comprehensive restoration it was then purchased by a Garage Proprietor in the Republic of Ireland during 2008.

Still bearing its Irish Registration number, she comes with an Irish Title Document which will facilitate straight forward registration with DVLA by the new owner (assistance will be given if required). All necessary Taxes have been paid and registered with Customs and Excise.

The paintwork is generally very good with only a small amount of deterioration around the windscreen. Structurally she is very sound and has recently benefited from a Brake Overhaul. The Interior is particularly smart and benefits from a period Rear Seat Conversion. All in all, a smart little van, ideal for advertising a business or just to enjoy and take to shows!'
