I know techically its nowhere near finished but it was well well rotten. The chassis had snapped in half, the sills were full of bitchum, back panel and arches where full of cement not bodge, lol.






These were taken end of last summer.

Cheers guys. Its actually a 300e van but after research found Ford offered the window conversion and moved filler neck if you wanted to put rear seats in the back which mine never did. Unusually its got a complete roof lining in aswell. It was far too rotten to rebuild as standard which i was going to do, honest :shake: :tup: Its rolling on a 3x2 chassis with an Autopower and Customs front clip, 4 bar with a narrowed 8" and WILL be running, eventually, a 350 SBC.

Cheers for comments guys, it means alot to me as im building the van alone and without anyone else to bash heads with if you know what i mean.

All that hard work paid of tho Jonny cos it does look real sweet now its finished (whow much damage was done with the recent mishap m8)
It's a bit charred under the flipfront and the firewall got a bit scorched but the top paint seems to have survived. You can't tell it happened unless you look underneath. I'll respray the engine bay when I pull the engine out.
