I'm helping out a friend who recently aquired a 1961 English Ford Van 800. It has been garaged for the last 30+ years. It is red and seems to be in fair condition for its age. I have pictures of it if anybody is interested. I know very little about these vans, so if anyone can help provide any information about them and what they are worth it would be appreciated. We believe it ran when it was parked in the garage, but no attempt at starting it has been made due to the long period of time sitting. The paint is faded and looks as though it had a business sign attached to the drivers side panel. It is located near South Bay California. Thank you, Radioman1

Hardest part about what you have is parts, even in England parts are hard to find. Do you have a picture???

Here are three pictures, but they don't look very good. The van has a lot of stuff piled up around it and it hasn't been washed. If I can get some better pictures of it I will post those as well. It is in California and I'm in Washington so it may take a little while.

From the pic's guessing you should be able to get 1 to 2 grand if there not much rust. Always wanted one myself

Those who are interested, send your phone number to me in a private message and I will give it to the owner of the van. I will let him work out the details with you. Thanks
