For sale: Athena the goddess of war and wisdom.

I have decided to sell this beautiful van as my original plans have changed and simply don't need a large van for town driving.

I will try to summarize info:

Model from 1987. First registered in the UK in 2013 after being dry stored by the dutch army since 1987 having few miles.
Previous owner has put the majority of 38,000 miles on it and was also knowledgeable with tools and mechanics so van would have been looked after in those 3 years no doubt.

Engine: Mercedes Benz 4 cylinder OM314 diesel engine 85hp, 3.9L (known as the million mile engine).
Gearbox 5 forward 1 reverse
Steering LHD

Fresh MOT as of November 15th so good to drive away. The van starts on the button every time no issues even in 0 degrees. I have been driving this van for 2 weeks and it drives perfect.

The van is in excellent shape mechanically and cosmetically. There are areas on the body with slight surface rust that could do with a rub down and repainted but this is only surface and is not a dent on it overall. You can come view the van for yourself. Previous owner has painted NATO green paint over some of the original paint, most likely from a touch up and decided to paint it to blend in, van looks great still (I found out that's how the dutch army keep them in good shape on their days off). Also Nato green inside the van.

Van has 24v volt electrics (2 x 12v batteries) and has both 24v and 12v electric outlets on dashboard and in various places within van.

Don't be fooled by the look of the van, it is very large inside, 3.5 meters by 2.4 meters approx. Just enough room for 2 people, one dog and a very comfortable living space. I was shocked myself. It's about 7.5ft inside also.

Underside was under sealed by either Mercedes or the Dutch Military from new. Peeling off in a couple of areas now but has served its purpose in keeping the underside of the van almost completely corrosion free.

Van has been down rated - which means it can be driven on a normal 3.5t car license. The van weighs 2.7t empty giving you an allowance of 800kg.

Van still has the factory fitted heavy duty Webasto auxiliary heater with separate outlets for front cab and rear patient bay. Works and fire up great. I was told to keep this in as they are sought after due to their reliability.

It still has the original fiberglass body panels in the back so looks really neat inside. As well as this original lighting in the back as well as various other electrical fittings.

It cruises at about 55mph.

The van was insured as a campervan and I was in the process of converting, this dramatically brought the insurance quote down, as originally they were insuring me on a commercial policy, until I called them up and switched it over.

I have all paperwork and history as well as V5 and original keys. Also has tracker and alarm which will be included in the sale.

This will make an awesome campervan conversion, they are one of the best to do it in as they simply do not break down so long as you look after it.

Based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
