1985 Austin Maestro 500 City Van


Time warp condition; 10,000 miles indicated; driven 30 miles to the sale; remarkable order; find another

This extremely smart 1985 Maestro 500 City van comes to us with little in the way of history, but a lot in the way of condition.

It is not quite true to say it is unmarked, but it really is in fine order. Its odometer shows just over 10,000 miles which we can't say is correct either, but it could well be given the condition both inside and out. There are a few dings here and there but it is the straightest one we have seen since they were being delivered new.

It comes with a no advisory MOT which expires on 17th January 2021 and its original Handbook.

Driven some 30 miles to the sale, it comes from a period where precious few BL cars have survived which is a shame, because they were well engineered and functional, even if a bit unloved at the time.

This one has the 1,275cc A-series engine so will go on for ever and cost pennies to run. If you had one of these in period and miss it, now is your chance to relive those deliveries of yesteryear...

The vendor has applied for a replacement V5C which has not yet arrived. This will be forwarded to the new owner in due course.
