Vehicle Description

I have this rare and wonderful Commer Highwayman for sale.
I bought it from someone who had given up on it, with the intention of rescuing it.

Extensive work was done:

In the back: the old, musty and broken furnishings were all removed; rotten joists were replaced; warped metal side panels were replaced; new skylight was installed; vehicle got properly sealed; new flooring, furniture, 12V/220 electrics, lighting and gas cooker were installed. I’m including a 12V/220V coolbox with the sale.

In the cab: rusted floor and rusted doors were given brand new metal; electrics got fully rewired

Engine etc: received all the necessary attention from my mechanic – pipes were changed, choke cable replaced, carburettor changed, brakes…, inside of tank was cleaned etc. etc. (for a full list of the works I can get you in touch with him). We kept at it until it purred perfectly without any issues.

Outside of the vehicle got re-sprayed, new rear-view mirrors, new window-wipers, four new wheels

The work was carried out by Dream Day Campers in Southampton, Sporting Classic Motors in Newbury, and some by myself with a carpenter. I can send more pictures and videos on request.

All in all, I will have spent way more money on it than what Iโ€™ll be selling it for, but I just need a quick sale at this point.

So this one is for someone a bit crafty who is excited about putting their own stamp on it.
It just needs the finishing touches like soft furnishings (foam for the seats/bed and fabric), curtains, and decorating in any style you like (painting, mosaic tilesโ€ฆ) I have lots of old Commer advertisements that would look great framed.
(Original) front leather seats could do with a leather repair person looking at it, or just throw a cushion on them.

This is really a super-fun, rare British old-timer, puts a smile on everyoneโ€™s face!
Also, MOT-exempt.

Any questions, get in touch!
Take care
