Love how he says "fully optioned" - it has after-market A/C system, no power windows or power mirrors or heated seats or cruise control - I even read somewhere that ABS was an option on late syncros.

Looks like the passenger door has seen some action too.

No photos of the donk either to scare anyone off.

At least he has rebuilt the tranny - but the VC is probably on its way out.

Ken and all

This does not look entirely like an original Caravelle GL...

A few points

- middle side windows should have metallic frames
- middle side windows do not open
- 1990 models should have electric mirrors
- black plastic flooring around gear lever is from a Transporter

Many other details are, however, correct.


That all said, it has the Puch badge, which generally means an Ateco, rather than a TKM import, in which case it potentially has a less standard combination. It was also when Caravelle C and CL vehicles were imported, however, I don't believe as Syncros. The seats certainly are GL seats, as are the door trims and carpet (excepting the black housing around the gear lever).

Mark.

That definitely is a factory step. I have seen them on a few other T25's but never a syncro. They were called an ambulance step I believe.

Exactly Greg.

The T25 Carats often got them and so did all the ambulances but they have been around since the early bays ie from 1968 on. There was a South African microbus deluxe with one shown in an old Camper & Bus magazine of mine.

Basically the bracket to the front of the sliding door pulls them out and back in again when the door is closed.

I agree - I'm not a fan - especially in an off-road vehicle.

Kenny,

Why dont you buy it - it will give you something else to polish up nice and shiny!

Exactly.

Every other T25 and T2 I have seen them on have been colour coded. They still look crap but.

No more room in the stable. Suppose I could leave it parked at the beach. 

Be handy though eh for carting broken concrete, trashed roof tiles and garden refuse to Kincumber tip and just as a general hack about the place, might have legs.

That definitely is a factory step. I have seen them on a few other T25's but never a syncro. They were called an ambulance step I believe.

Love how he says "fully optioned" - it has after-market A/C system, no power windows or power mirrors or heated seats or cruise control - I even read somewhere that ABS was an option on late syncros.

Looks like the passenger door has seen some action too.

No photos of the donk either to scare anyone off.

At least he has rebuilt the tranny - but the VC is probably on its way out.

Scotty,

 

No more room in the stable. Suppose I could leave it parked at the beach. 

 

Be handy though eh for carting broken concrete, trashed roof tiles and garden refuse to Kincumber tip and just as a general hack about the place, might have legs.

Exactly Greg.

The T25 Carats often got them and so did all the ambulances but they have been around since the early bays ie from 1968 on. There was a South African microbus deluxe with one shown in an old Camper & Bus magazine of mine.

Basically the bracket to the front of the sliding door pulls them out and back in again when the door is closed.

I agree - I'm not a fan - especially in an off-road vehicle.

Kenny,

Why dont you buy it  - it will give you something else to polish up nice and shiny!

Yours is a sensational tristar - it came with everything. There is another caravelle near Sydney Uni near a job of mine that is also a syncro and the same colour that still has the poverty pack wheels.

So , the Tristar came with everything ??? Anybody knows of the whereabouts of the original front bumper ?? would love to have it back. It obviously had been taken off once the roobar was fitted.

The anecdotal story behind those ‘poverty’ wheels is that alloy wheels were fitted by the factory but didn’t make it to the customer... It is said also that the spare was of steel design in vehicles that were delivered with alloys....
