For Sale here we have a 1997 'R' plate Ford Escort 55 Van. It is an EX-BT vehicle, currently registered on PLG tax. It comes complete with the BT Service book all filled in. It also has several receipts for parts and old MOT certificates. It has 2 door and ignition keys, as well as 2 keys for the diesel tank. It is a 1.8 diesel (non turbo).

The current MOT expires mid November, and it was issued with no advisories. We had the van in storage from June 2011 to December 2011 whilst we decided in these tough times wether we could afford to keep it (due to owning a Fiat Ducato and a car). Whilst it was in storage we gave the van a new clutch and alternator. It has also been treated to a new set of front tyres and a new battery. When we collected it in December it started first time and has continued to be reliable all through the winter. We have taken it camping around Norfolk for 3 days, as well as on several long journeys to Portsmouth & Reading. The van was treated to a oil & filter change in Oct 2010 when we bought it and has never lost any oil and water on these journeys.

The van has 76000 miles on it (these will go up due to being driven daily) and currently nearly £30 worth of diesel in it! This will give the buyer between 150-200 miles before they need to fill it up! I have been driving it around town to work (about 5 miles a day) and giving it a run several times a week on duel carriage ways. It does around 400 miles to a tank of diesel and will happily cruise around all day at 60-70 mph.

The van has a security cage between the front and rear, so anything in the back can only be accessed by opening the rear doors. As you can see in the pictures we have taken the small metal panel off the lock on the back door - this was so when we were camping we could close the door properly at night. The panel is present in the sale so it can be put back on if needs be. The back of the van has the usual Ford lining in to protect the base and it also has a layer of black carpet on top of that. There is also a roof rack included in the sale (we got this when we bought it) but it is missing several screws to attach to the roof.

Offers are welcome and will be considered. Viewing can also be arranged, either message on here or text 07706262055.

*** PLEASE NOTE ***  Item is sold as seen - receipt will be given. Cash on collection only (no part exchange) No warranty will be given nor implied.
