Quite an expensive van, depending on how good it really is! :o :)

This might be one of Tony Carrols vans, he has moved into the Blackpool area from Manchester.

Better to ask too much,and gradually reduce the price until you find a buyer,than ask too little and then find the buyer has advertised it again a few weeks later with a much higher price :(

You could be right, he does like the word 'mint' ! :D
I'm sure this van has done the rounds at some mmoc nationals a few years back. I remember the colour and low miles, I think it was for sale then.

I do like that colour and it looks a nice van too. It's a colour I would probably use on a Morris PU.

Just checked the phone number, it is Tony Carrol.
As you say the word mint does give it away!

I do like those mirrors mounted on the doors; I bet that will make it a lot easier to see what's behind you.

It will be a new experience for the neighbours!

There was another Antelope Austin badged van on a "L" plate which was in storage in the London area a few years back, that had only done 7,000 miles from new, it was sold later, I believe it went up to Scotland.

Vans & pick-ups painted in Antelope are scarce, I had a late Morris badged 8cwt pick-up I bought from Midhurst Engineering on a K plate, this was in original Antelope paint, regrettably I repainted it dark blue, I should have left it in it's original Antelope colour.
The reg number was WRU251K chassis no. MAU5-318538F it had been new to a chap just outside Wareham in Dorset, the chassis was getting very mellow in places so I sold it.

After that I bought a nice 6 cwt pick-up to replace it, JVE917F this had been re-registered carrying the number HEW836F, I managed to get her original JVE917F registration back, it still had the original BMC Running in sticker in the top left hand of the windscreen.

Remarkably my last van was WRU330K which started out life with the Elctricity Board at Bristol - and I was in touch with the owner of WRU329K. I still have enough of 330K for a rebuild that might satisfy DVLA with respect to retaining the identity.
TFM is a late (April 1972) Post Office engineers van in lovely Golden Yellow (Golden Yellow - doesn't come out very well)!!
