Makes me think of a 'carry' van.

Do it right - use Hammerite

I’ll leave it a while longer to let you all have a bit of a quizz
The paint is nato green and a red herring as it’s a non original colour

A friend had something like it and it was a common shell for a few makers - not sure if his was a Super Carry or badged by another maker but we are talking 1990s. . I could never get my feet to the pedals.

I really miss my SAAB - I'd have another any day, but mine was a diesel and I wasn't doing the miles to justify it. - Useful SAAB resource here... SAAB Tech Talk


Back to the Campervan - I remember being on various detachments and exercises in Germany when I was in the RAF and there were many NATO green VW buses on the German bases - but they were the later angular ones.

Any particular reason you chose NATO green?
