- Change the curtains (except the front privacy curtain which was/is in good condition)

The engine, the body and the outside :
- Odometer is showing NOW 230’000 kilometers (just as a reference)
- Major Works performed between 211’500 and 217’000 km including the following : Engine refurbishment (NEW Crankshaft, pistons, cylinders,bearings, flywheel. Block was remachined, Major Service (spark plugs, points, condenser, spark plug cables, etc.),

Basically the engine was repaired to 0 hours.

- Brake system was revised, repaired and flushed at 202’000km
- Extra critical spare parts will be included with the sale (points, condenser, belt, spark plugs cables, fuel pump, fuel filter, ignition coil)

Comments :
- Oil consumption : ~0.5 liter / 1000 km
- the windshield has one repair(we bought it like this already, no big deal) + a few little spots from small stones on gravel roads (no repair needed)
- Few rust spots below the windshield and in a few places (treated)
- The bumpers could be repainted for a cleaner look
- The brake system is an old type, which means that if you are not used to drive a classic old car, you need to “learn” a few tricks to avoid breaks overheating. This is mainly when driving down hills in high altitude. NO problem otherwise.
- The original heating system is working but not effective in cold places.
- Water filtering through one of the side window in case of very heavy rain (we bought it like this, could be fix by changing a few joints).
- The paint was redone by this Mexican passionate who did a very good paint and when the van is clean, nobody believes it’s from 74.
- This is a very strong car, we drove very bad roads and no major breakdown.
- This is a strong but simple engine (easy and cheap to fix)
- It’s compact enough to drive anywhere but comfortable enough to feel home .
- In general, the van is in good condition, but you should keep in mind that it’s a 1974 vehicle (with its advantages and inconvenient).
