///// MECHANICS /////



She drives amazing (2.0L ENGINE) and has a five speed manual column shift gear box and with 325.000km she has plenty of life left in her (same age vans are generally between 400.000 and 600.000km).

DO NOT trust other Ford Econovan ad with mileage under 300.000km as odometer is only 5 digits. Check reports of vehicle on CARJAM as we did.


Also the POWER STEERING is very useful for a van, because you are going to drive it every day.  A good Sony CD Player is installed with external plug (Jack and/or USB), which allows you to listen all your favorite songs from your Smartphone during those long drives.

The second battery of the van is necessary for all your interior electric needs such as fridge, power inverter, usb plug, lights and water pump. This second battery is charging when you are driving but the Dual System installed protects your engine battery by never discharging it.

Before buying a campervan or car we recommend that you get the vehicle checked by an independent mechanic or have an inspection by the AA undertaken to ensure there are no major faults or problems. If you are renting or taking advantage of a buyback scheme make sure you have a valid contract in place.

Please be aware of scammers that have been operating on buy and sell websites such as ours. They claim to be working away but will want to buy and sell a vehicle remotely. DO NOT engage with these enquiries or transfer any money without meeting the buyer or seller in person.
