:)Hi, It doesn't look like I will find a 33 Van.My next favourite would be a Ford 300E Van to restore.Why? you ask;when I was 18 I bought my first car a 1949 Austin 8 [all I could afford as an apprentice],but a friend [with a well off Dad] had a 100E Van in British Racing Green with Cooper Yellow wheels,yellow grill and a large yellow strip across the bonnet,roof and back doors and it was tuned[as much as you could a side valve engine].I loved that van and have always hankered after one in those colours,so I might have a look round.Why a 300E? same body, but has the OHV engine as fitted to the 105E Anglia,but best of all the Mk 1 Cortina GT engine will fit.Also the 300E has electric wipers,not the vacuum type fitted to 100E's etc.which used to slow down to a stop on brisk accelleration and when driving up any sort of hill or gradient. Not quite my ultimate car,but certainly much much cheaper. starider
