    I had it topped up when it started to make noises......less than 80,000kms ago, but it didn’t make it any less noisy...:(

    Not my opinion, I'm only the messenger. This is what the Mobil people that worked on them told me.

    Think they are all still for sale but it amazes me how many reasonable t3s are still trucking and in great condition compared to the splittys and bays that outsold them by hundreds of thousands

    Went to look at a Trakka advertised locally and the guy was very surprised how many calls he got...
    . gee there is some interest in these old busses he said .
    .... sold on the first day as soon as he got home from work people waitimg
    This T3 was a time warp put away many decades ago judging by the draw and cupboard contents
    First camper ive ever seen without a radio etc turns out the hearing aid equipment points to a one owner ? hence the lack of stereo these old busses definatly tell a story

    You should have tested the car horn

    I reckon it is probably 150dB

    There is one out there with your name on it
    Did see one advertised recently though not sure it was a Caravelle GL
    Someone here will know about one that sold yesterday
    There is always Santa but your going to have to get a bigger chimney

    There’s one in Adelaide, and one in Sydney’s west, that I know of.

    But both are not currently on the market, and are projects for the owners I believe. ;)

    They are rare with the sunroof. ripe for suby conversion or rebuild if that motor can be which wont be known till heads removed, corrosion may be too bad or a stud snaps. I recent;y swapped one for labour with my mechanic, they are real nice vans as long as the roof works as it should & no leaks.
