    It used to say OXO on the side of buses when I was a kid, but they never sold any.., 500 your having a laugh. its the other 1.5k you need to add to it before you could snap it up.

    The FG used to belong to an old boy, I spoke to him in 1998, and took some pictures, it was light green then. I think he had owned it since the 70s. The A series is well rare too, I wonder what it starts like, these york diesel engines were renowned for being almost impossible to start on a cold day, they had huge twin batteries I think, so Ford must have known they were lousy starters even when they designed them.....

    I fitted a york diesel in a old transit pick up. It was as strong as a ox, but come winter, tractor battery jumpstart every time

    Hi - This is back on Ebay with a reduced starting price and no reserve. It may not be to everyones taste.
    Seller says if it does not sell this time, he will break up and sell in parts.

    Maybe you like it, or maybe you just need a part from it. Who knows!

    Fancy this but cannot afford it.Don't need all the caravan bits either as I would want a very simple conversion with insulation and an effective burner being priorities. I already have a small gas stove and a primus or 2 left over from a past life.

    Hi - Found this excellent looking one. It is expensive! - but I really do like the shape.



    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-thame...#ht_768wt_1398

    Also - here are some parts that seem to be very cheap at the moment, I am sure they will go up.



    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/camper-van...#ht_500wt_1413

    Hope they help someone.

    (Mods: If ukHippy becomes an ebay affiliate; and someone clicks links and goes on to purchase a vehicle - doesn't ukHippy get a monetary kickback for this? - just a thought!)

    Looks like someone cut up a double decker and put it on a ??????????????????? chassis. Any ideas Wandering Gypsy? I thought Merc at first but the half shafts don't look right.

    Im sure that Thames trader went through ebay end of last year or start of this year. fetched just over 2,000 the paint job on the inside cupboards and the worktop tiles are the same.
