Probably the most famous austin half ton a55 van in existence, star of tvs heartbeat.
i bought this van in 2008 from the film vehicle supplier of the tv series heartbeat. We stripped the van right back to bare metal, alleviated it of any rust & imperfections, sprayed it in its original colour blue, (it was a weird beige colour when i bought it) even the interior has been spray painted.
the film company would brush paint it over quick with emulsion of either green, white, black or whatever to give the van a different trade. Appearance. Bakers van, fruit & veg etc,
in the photo outside scrips garage, it is in its fruit & veg guise. The van is seen in lots of different episodes. See the reg no. 456 fdv. We removed the engine & gearbox, put new clutch in, removed cyl head. Checked pistons. New head gasket. Spray painted in engine bay, refitted engine & gearbox.
the underneath is now all solid & perfect. Brakes serviced & pipes all renewed. I have fully documented photographs of all this. Months & months of work.
i am thinking of selling the van like this. With the lights, windows, interior etc not fitted but supplied with. As i have all the parts in boxes. New radiator, leather seats refurbed, replacement door cards. All of the hard work done. If not i shall fit it back up & sell it all up & running. If you are interested please call me on the details below. i figure that when its up & running, it will be the best van out there, with plenty of provenance. An ideal advertising tool
