Description RARE 1978 BEDFORD CHEVANNE MULTI AWARD WINNING VAUXHALL CHEVETTE VAN

XXX Re-listed after ebay cancelled the advert because I put the word not in the title xxx
1978 VAUXHALL / BEDFORD CHEVANNE
Rare opportunity to own what is believed to be one of less than 20 remaining Genuine Bedford Chevannes.
This van is absolutely stunning and draws attention everywhere it goes, so much so that it has won several awards over the years in my ownership, a couple that spring to mind include Editors Choice at the Classic and Vintage Commercial Show at Gaydon in July 2013 and 2nd place in category at this years annual Historic Commercial Vehicles Society London to Brighton Road Run and Show.
The van has been displayed at many famous shows including the VBOA Annual Show at Billing, Classic Commercial Shows at Malvern and Donnington Park, Bedford Gathering at Ellesmere Port, Classic Van and Pick up at Gaydon the list goes on and on. It even got into the world famous Great Dorset Steam Fair this year but due to unforeseen circumstances I couldn't make it.
Aside of this, the van has been seen in many commercial magazines over the years. The van was also the front cover and main feature Vehicle in Classic Van and Pick up November 2013 Magazine.
The first owner of the Van was SMT in Scotland, an ex Vauxhall / Bedford Dealer where it was used for light work as a parts delivery van.
The 2nd owner of the Van, was the workshop manager at SMT who bought it for himself and his family for daily use.  At some point the van became surplus to requirements and spent over 20 years locked away in a garage (hence the low miles), before being brought back to life with a no expense spared full restoration using genuine GM panels.
The 3rd owner was the Son of the above.
The 4th owner was a gentleman also from Scotland who had seen the van advertised for sale at a local show where he purchased it. This owner also had the van featured in Classic Van and Pick Up Magazine looking slightly different with spot lights, sign writing and wheels e.t.c.
I bought the van from the above through the Chevette Owners forum and had it shipped down from Scotland. When it arrived I wasn't totally happy with the finish of the paint.  No one else could see what was wrong with it and said I was being fussy, maybe I was being anal about it and wanting it right so I had the van stripped and repainted, as well as the wheels shot blasted and powder coated.  Many other parts have been replaced with new old stock parts these include the rear bumper, rear lights, front and rear screen rubbers, chrome hub caps, Continental Tyres the list goes on and on.
A truly stunning rare van that drives like a car and keeps up with modern day traffic. This is not to be missed.  The van also comes with a few spares including a new set of complete front door rubbers, a new pair of rear exterior side panels and anything else I can find Chevette / Chevanne related in my unit, a stack of old receipts, paperwork, photos and a spare set of keys.
A couple of FREEBIES to come with the van include a full tank of Petrol to see you on your way and a 12 month Bedford Enthusiast Club membership.
The van is based near Aylesbury Buckinghamshire and is available for viewing with prior notice.
Genuine buyers only please, no scammers.
Not interested in P/X so please don't ask.
