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 I’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 tiles…) 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 everyone’s face!
Any questions, get in touch!
