Bétaillère's are favored for their increased rear load area height, so suit a variety of applications.
Unfortunately the compromise you make for this additional space (originally designed to transport animals) is that it has indeed been used to carry animals!
One expects certain wear due to the nature of its original use, so their condition, and use, versus say a factory camper of the same age is very very different.
We view unrestored original condition horsebox's with a different eye to that of a standard van or camper, but still walk away from a-lot of Bétaillère's as they are often 'far too far gone' to be viable for restoration where commercial use is the end goal.

Rear side skirts require areas of patching.
Areas of surface rust - perforating in some exposed areas.

It is structurally stable, with wear visible where you would want to see it - based on it being a working vehicle.
No holes in the floor, and is above average for a livestock carrier 41 years old that hasn't been tinkered with.
Nothing is hidden under layers of waxoyl, or earlier bad 'restoration' attempts. This has not seen any filler.
Cab roof, gutters, headlining, seats, front wheel-arches etc are good and all original and un-touched.
Various lifetime marks to the outside of the cab - around one headlight in particular - obvious un-ashamed paint touch ups - again nothing concealed under layers of paint.
This is a good proposition to take forward.
Perfect for catering or camper conversion.

HY’s/J7’s ‘clock out’ at 100,000km (approx 60k miles) as they only have 5 digit readings, they return to 0 and start over.
They are easy to clock – you don’t know what’s happened in the past.
