Well it arrived! Its been converted to RHD and was imported from Belgium in 1985 (its original number plate was ERF 933). I got it pretty cheap, and its fairly solid.

I last saw this van in 1989! :shock:

It used to be parked on a driveway in Totnes, South Devon.

That's an old log book! What are the dates of ownership/change of ownership?

Interesting! So, what's the story with it? Where's it been hiding? Did you get any history with it? I'm intrigued! :)

Post Re: 1980 Acadiane
to be honest, the guy I bought it off was fairly useless.
But this is the story as far as i'm aware:
First registered 1980 in Belgium ERF 933 (I still have its old v5)
Left its first and only owner after five years
Exported from Belgium/imported to England Through Dover in 1985
Driven around under the reg: PPF 343W
Last MOT'd 1990
After that, it was exchanged for a Land Rover LWB safari in 1990
Since then somebody took on the 'project' of converting it (pics to follow) and it was never put back on the road.
Thats what it looks like anyway.
