Offered For Sale is my 1982 LHD Peugeot J9 Van.

French born on the 2nd November 1982, this rarer factory sliding door model Peugeot Van with 2100cc Diesel engine and 4 speed gear box was purchased from it's 2nd registered keeper in Rochefort, in the Western region of France. It was in service until late 2018, used as a general property maintenance vehicle by its then owner.

It arrived in the UK in April 2019 having covered 198,300 Kilometres / 123,217 Miles in its 37 years and after a small amount of recommissioning work was completed, a UK MOT was obtained. After this, in May 2019 I became the custodian, and only UK registered keeper.

Immediately after collection I unfortunately realised the van didn’t really run 100% and would need some additional work. The van has since had the fuel system- including tank- flushed, pipework replaced, and an electronic in-line fuel pump added before the mechanical system. All injectors have been checked and cleaned, and the exhaust manifold removed, braised, re-machined, and refitted with new gaskets.

Running gear is in very good condition having been serviced upon purchase, and now the van drives and rides well. The 2100cc lump is basic, but reliable - not a quick engine but strong and durable. It’s an old diesel so there is a little smoke on start-up if it’s stood but none evident whilst driving even when accelerating a little heavier. The 4 speed box works well without undue noises, the clutch releases well with a good biting point also. Suspension is original and happily continues to carry a full cab and load without sagging, wallowing, or creating any undue noises. Brakes have also been gone through and pull up straight with good pressure on the pedal.

Original metric wheels have been removed, painted in a metallic gunmetal to the front and a rich blue to the back. These were then fitted with 16” Hankook commercial rated tyres with 16” heavy duty inner tubes.

Bodywork itself is commensurate with age and previous usage as a work van whilst in France. There are marks and dents with some surface rust showing- all evident in the photos. There is no recent paintwork to the main areas that would hide any major damage, heavy rust or rot. The lower rear doors have been repaired, the nature of this is best described as agricultural but they would appear to be salvageable with better repairs and possibly some panel work.
Chassis is in very good original condition and without damage or repair. More importantly, it has only factory underseal, so nothing covered up.

The cabin of the van remains basic but is complete with all elements working as they should with just one exception- the fuel gauge- which I suspect might just need a connector on the sender reattaching after I had reinstalled it. The driver’s seat is worn as shown but still comfortable, the passenger double seat with just minor damage but again comfortable. 3 factory seatbelts are present.

I have ran this van for personal use as work commitments have allowed. It’s now covered 201,400 kilometres / 124,895 miles of which I have completed 3,100 kilometres. I had intended to update the cab interior, insulate and line the rear before adding additional seating and a full bespoke camper interior as it benefits from 6’ of standing height within the back. Work commitments continuing, it seems a shame for it to not achieve its full potential so is reluctantly offered For Sale.

The van comes with current UK MOT (18.04.2020) and having not completed vast mileage since this I see little reason it would not pass when due with last year’s advisories having been completed by myself within my ownership.

Included also copies of the original French registration documentation. It is fully UK registered, NOVA import duties declared but not required due to age at point of import.

It is available for viewing in Leicestershire, and on completion of full payment will be released and removed from Sale.

To confirm- this is a 38 year-old commercial vehicle that has during its life been repaired and maintained, it has not undergone restoration but is presented in good original condition with room for improvement to suit your own requirements.

Genuine interest only please, my time outside of work is important to me. Questions will be answered quickly as phone and internet access allow.
Funds must be received in full and must be cleared prior to the vehicle being released.

60+ detailed photos are available upon request.

This is a private sale and as such is to be sold as seen without warranty being implied or offered.
The van drives well and is fully road legal but for anyone interested in the van considering transporting rather than driving away, I do have access to a trailer and I am willing to offer a delivery service depending on distance; with an additional cost agreed prior to any completion of a sale.

Please email any questions or call, please leave a message if unanswered.

Viewing is in South Leicester, near J21 M1 / J1 M69.
Thanks for looking.
