Ford Transit 160 Ambulance
This vehicle was home converted in 2009 but not re-registered as a camper van. It has been used every year since for camping trips and festivals.
Each year, I got it through the MOT with some welding and some parts as necessary, we have reciepts and all MOT certificates.
Has original single seats in front but comes with double seat ready to be fitted.
Some of the original features remain and we have made the following additions:
This was running well until last Summer when we tried to run it on 50/50 vegetable oil and deisel which caused the fuel pump to fail. I have tried in vain to get it running again, I have purchased a second hand pump which I have been reliably informed will work. Sadly, I no longer have the time to keep working on it: it possibly needs new injectors or the timing is out i'm not sure, it also needs new batteries. If you can get it running I'm sure it will pass another MOT and be good for a few more years, maybe the best option is to pop another engine in.
We've had some great times camping in her and are reluctant to let her go for scrap - this would be a great project for the right person.
MOT valid until June 15th 2013
The vehicle is currently SORN in Cheltenham from where it will need to be towed.
Please note that the rugs etc shown in pictures are not included.

After three hours in the garage today adjusting the injection pump timing the engine is now RUNNING but needs fine tuning. We would still advise towing the vehicle but this is down to your discretion - there is 1/4 tank of deisel.
There is also a removable CD player/radio/bluetooth telephone available as an optional extra if required by winning bidder (ask for details).
This vehicle is also advertised elsewhere so please be advised the listing could be removed at any time.
