Rare Australian Container Van built In 1963 RHD

An absolute fortune has been spent on the van and too much to list now but hereís a few

Currently has porsche 356 engine (not included )
Comes with a period correct big bore VW engine running Porsche pistons and putting out about 2100cc

Iíve owned the van since 2016 when it was a rotten wreck and always planned it to be a food van, hence the sales hatch
Then covid hit whilst still in the garage being done and things just kinda went on hold from there! Only really driven it around my garden.
So perfect start to have a kitchen fit and start selling, or a perfect advertising vehicle.

Money wise I know what I have In it, hence selling the Porsche engine and downgrading the Fuch wheels and I still know I wonít t get it all back
2 container vans have sold in the last few years and here is the list prices
