Saw a few t25 pick up's in dunmanway last week, but not sure if the bloke who had them is interested in selling them.

Have to say, i think they're my favourite type 2 model. Perhaps not the most practical, but defo the coolest in my opinion:)  Seems to be a few about, but wouldn't say there's too many, as they would've all had a hard working life, i'd imagine :'(

here's a mix of practicality and the coolness of the pickup looks: a RHD crewcab, in Co. Clare/Limerick.

I think Paul has revised the price too:

That's a beauty so it is:)   If i wasn't in the process of moving into a new house, i'd be up for that. He has it advertised donedeal.ie for e4000 now, that looks like a bargain for somebody:)       Dam bad timing, lol

Looks like its handy for leaning on too  ;D



And when its off the road its damn handy for storing stuff in/on  :D :D :D
