Ford Transit Van Mk2 1980 Kombi Bus (it has "Kombi" stamped on the compliance plate) with 2 front 180 degree rotating front bucket "Captain's" seats - rear seats removed (had been converted to a camper). (2nd of 2 vans for auction) Unregistered LWB. Odometershows 97435 - as it only goes up to 99,999km, can't be sure how many times it has been around the clock.
250 motor is a little tired - mainly top end I think (when on the road was blowing a little grey smoke particularly on start up). Dual throat weber carb needs reco - idle circuit stops working & engine stalls after engine warms up. Switchable dual battery set up for camper (only one battery installed in poor condition - enough to let it run with a jump start to move it on site). It has factory electronic ignition with point free dizzy - when the carb was in good nick it would start at the first touch of the key.
Long Range - twin switchable 50L fuel tanks; one each side (or one may be smaller than the other - can't be sure as I only ever used the passenger side tank).
Removeable cargo barrier (tek screws into floor + screws above seat belts either side.
Purchased roadworthy at the end of 2004 (new tie rod ends fitted for the RWC at 74279km).
Has been off the road under cover for the most part since 2010.
5 speed toploader manual. 2nd gear synchro is a bit worn - jumps out of gear unless you hold it in & a bit hard to get into gear; gearshift lever is broken at its threaded junction a little above floor level but it has a temporary attachment fitted sufficient for moving it around ( I was driving it like this for a couple of months before I let the rego run out).
Borg Warner highway diff fitted - Would happily sit on 110 on the freeway. Joe from JB Auto in Dandenong has other ratio diffs available if required (along with any other parts or advice you might need for older transits) (0427 792 003 / (03) 9792 5000, 56-58 Bennet St, Dandenong Vic) .
It is fitted with a retractable passenger rear side step. It also fitted with a rear step to which a towbar (supplied) can be bolted. A trailer plug is fitted. If I recall correctly both of these steps should be able to be unbolted from this van & fitted to the other if you desired.
It has a threaded fitting in the bottom centre of the front panel chassis rail as pictured - I'm unsure what this is for (winch or towed vehicle bracket perhaps?)
Includes a frame that was fitted when I purchased the vehicle to fit an old style metal sprung single bed base, side arms to suit a "Tradesman" brand roof rack & rear side door magazine tub (loose, not fitted).
Aftermarket adjustable intermittant wiper circuit has been fitted, along with thermofan with override switch (ie you can switch it to run continuously when ignition is on if required). 240V inlet in engine bay with wiring running to rear of vehicle (not connected).
Rear floor lined with ply.
Rear passenger side door can fold back all the way back to the front guard.
The driver's side rear sliding vent window is shattered..
The dashboard & motor/clutch/gearbox in these vans is a mix of the late model 6cyl Aussie Cortinas & Falcons of the same era. I have a Hard copyTF Cortina Gregorys repair manual that I will list separately.
I have swapped some of the doors between the to make both vans lockable. I will NOT be changing them back around as I simply do not have the time to spare. The lock barrels are the same as nearly every other Ford of the era & I have full sets of keys available for both vehicles.

I have just recalled that the clutch was slipping as well - apologies to those who have already placed bids if this would influence the amount of bid already placed.
