Mk3 For Sale - Long Wheel Base

Post  red_leader on Tue Feb 05, 2013 9:43 pm

Problems with my left knee and back have led to me buying a Berlingo instead of the poor old Scamp. Just too painful climbing in and out, and my girlfriend agrees. Would you spread the word that it is for sale as a spares or repair project.
Still taxed, but MOT just run out. Was in almost daily use from 1997 until Monday.
Two seats, but belts in place for rear bench. 1275 A+, about 25,000 since rebore and grind. 13" wheels, 155 tyres, reasonable tread. No known engine/transmission problems. Starts nearly every time!
Known faults - needs repaint, floor wants rivetting in places, front subframe rusty and turret has been welded one side, one lower arm bush wants replacing, could do with new discs,needs new poppers on hood. I have had to weld the chassis in two places, (rear spring box mount and front shocker top mount) so it could do with a strip, check and rebuild really.
Cheers, Colin

A few more notes on the Scamp, it was the prototype long wheel base, it has twin roll bars tied to windcreen and rear bars, the chassis is reinforced about the front subframe mountings, the engine and box are raised 1 1/2" for better ground clearance and it has a tunnel for the gear linkage and exhaust. A lockable boot between the rear arches has a flat top as a cargo deck. Twin fuel tanks, 13 gallons capacity with a reserve tank function. Fitted with towballs front and rear, and single electrics but no relays. Wiring in place for front spot lights, and there is a mounting bar for them around somewhere. The cab soft top slots into a caravan awning moulding at the front, so no draughts. Locking doors with sliding windows, zipped rear flap. Spare wheel on swing away mounting bar, another included loose. Both bumpers have provision for high-lift jacks to be used. Slots for radio and CB. Grille comes off easily and front mounted Metro radiator swings out for access to distributor etc, electric fan has override switch and also cutout switch for deep water wading. All fuses etc inside the car.
Cheers, Colin
