Leyland Sherpa 240 diesel van

I’ve always wanted an “old” British van so I bought two!!! When they came up for sale I couldn’t resist. They were cheap and bought unseen. On the first one, the interiors in very good condition, but the bodywork requires a fair amount of welding. I’ve already sourced a good running original spec. engine from another Sherpa owner.

Here as some photos of no.1 when it arrived.

Number 2 Is in better condition bodywise and actually has no holes anywhere in the chassis apart from the jacking points at the rear. The bodywork is bashed and battered but with some love and care and a big hammer, I should be able to repair over time.
