I am reluctantly parting with my Horsebox which I intended to convert into a house on wheels! This is the less common 3.5T shorter version of the EA 440 made by Austin Morris and then under the Leyland/BMC marque. The chassis is free from any major rust and the aluminium bodywork and fibreglass roof are in good shape. It has benefited from a respray by the previous owner so cosmetically it is looking very presentable.The running gear is good and has been fitted with 6 new tyres and had the gearbox rebuilt recently. The engine is in need of attention however and I don't have the time at present to resolve what hopefully is a straightforward fix. It has a 2.3 XD2S engine from a Peugeot fitted which was running when purchased a month ago but began to overheat on it's first run and now won't run. On the way back home from purchasing it we took it to a garage and were told the head and gasket would need looking at. It's a pushrod engine so head removal is fairly easy but to be totally honest I'm now thinking I'd prefer something a little smaller and lighter to do my conversion with. We have a dolly which you are welcome to borrow/purchase if required for transportation. Once the engine is sorted she'll be a very solid base for whatever use you may intend, be it a camper, food van or transporting horses!
