Classic VW Camper van

A must for any amateur or professional car restorer the VW Camper Van and this 1794 example is in good shape to be fair considering the 42 years which its been since she first rolled out of the factory. The Devon Pop Top complete with bunks and covers but, no interior to speak of this camper is ready for a respray and some seats. The engine is 1600cc and according to the advert is “solid” and she just requires bodywork. An easy project to complete for someone with the time and a snap at £2,850 with UK delivery an option suggested by the vendor or browse more VW Camper Vans for sale here in the Volkswagen classifieds.

Jaguar XK120
Jaguar XK120 for Restoration (1953)
On the more pricey end of the spectrum is this 1953 Jaguar XK120. A drop head coupe has been living the life out in California, LA. She is in need of a full restoration and is LHD. She has also been raced at one time in her life so but, appears to be straight underneath it all. However one never can how shes avoid the odd spin or bump especially with it being at one point a former race car. The gear box has also been replaced with a different one and no longer matches the chassis number or heritage certificate. She’s also an imported vehicle and the Ad makes no mention of tax or duty to be paid nor outstanding. This XK also has a different bumper than standard and there is no frame for the roof supplied with the car either. £37,000 is the asking price, dare if you will, rare as hens teeth with re-creations fetching similar amounts you might struggle to find another even if this one doesn’t seem like the best on offer.
