2012 VM SWB Ford Transit Van, asking $15K.
it’s a - VM Transit 280 SWB FWD 2.2L (turbo diesel) DSL 92Kw 6SPD Man Van in
Frozen White, 330Nm which moves it along quite nicely and being a diesel I
reckon it’s only just run in.
A one owner
vehicle, purchased from a Ford dealership by myself as a very low K’s demo
396k’s, the van was basically brand new, and has now traveled 145,000 k’s with
the vast majority on highways and byways.
Never done a day’s work and used mainly as a camper van and occasionally
would tow a small trailer. Steering is
tight, brakes are strong, doesn’t leak or use a drop of oil.
the same engine that went into Ford Ranger 2wd ute, this is a late model design
electronic turbo diesel, I get 6.5L/per hundred and I’m extremely gentle with
my stuff and don’t abuse my vehicles, the van cruses loaded or empty over every
hill thrown at it in top, it’s a grunt machine.
have gone wrong are, a stone chip in the windscreen tossed up by a construction
truck on the M5, (filled with windscreen repair resin but it’s still very
obvious) and the fuel cap is getting a bit fiddly to get off, doesn’t bother me
and that’s it only faults. I’ve got a
small bottle of Ford factory frozen white paint and any stone chips in the
paint are touched up as soon as I spot them.
the above mentioned very small issues this van has never let me down, I’ve had
zero problems since driving it out of the Ford dealership. It’s been factory serviced right on service
intervals and on its second set of Goodyear Cargo tyres, I got 90,000 out of
the first set..
fitted with the Ford Professional Pack.
control mounted on the steering wheel.
audio controls next to the blinker stalk.
has a 50mm H/D Hayman Reece towbar professionally fitted and wired.
player with Aux input and all the other standard stuff, A/C, electric windows,
immobilizer, bucket seats with armrests etc. and everything works perfectly,
this van is a joy to drive.
storage space, hidey holes everywhere, large door pockets, center dash piece
flips out to form a small table with cup holders, large bottle storage on both
sides of the dash as well as in the doors, top of the dash in front of both
driver and passenger flips up for two more storage options along with
storage areas under the seats.
for a SWB Van is huge and has a factory cargo area rubber floor fitted, I built
a bed and can sleep cross-ways in the cargo area, I go away and can live pretty
comfortably for as long as needed, I even put some serious heat insulation on
the roof inside the cargo area, it’s the stuff used in high horsepower marine
engine rooms, it works well, I was always going to get around to doing the side
walls but never really had a need to do so.
honestly believe you will not find a
better example of this model Transit, it will pass any test or inspection, I
thought long and hard about upgrading but I have a genuine need to get an
automatic so reluctantly offer it for sale. Rego is due in September and that
is reflected in the price being asked.
represents great value at $15,000. 2 airbags. This Ford Transit Van has 2000kg
braked and 750kg unbraked towing capacity.
