1995 Bilk Float TD

Post by quietside » Fri Mar 13, 2020 7:56 pm

I bought this piece of shit as a budget camper and parts dragger.

Image

227k on a 1.9TD, recent cambelt, terrible dashcam, minging interior which I've since cleaned. The glovebox fell out and the switch on the dash runs the blower.

It was an 8 seater; I'm not going to use the back bench so I sold it to another Eurovan licker; I'm delivering it there next weekend.

Image

It's as rough as houses to look at but drives fine and does about 40mpg round the doors.

Image

The lacquer peel is disgusting and I couldn't care less.

Overall I quite like it.

[checks receipt] £300 - and I feel like I was done.

I sold the rear bench for £50.

It got the Bilk Float name at work.

Fans of Local58 would do well to check out my dashcam footage. I've never owned a car with a dashcam before.

I take it that it got past the underwriting gods.

No, the chebs wouldn't insure it so I added it to my modern car policy for £not too much.

I suppose it has its uses as a disposable dogging van, especially as it has a dashcam. I take it you're going to be a regular at Sale Water Park again?

What parts will you be throwing in the back of it? And I don't mean body parts.
