I have seen an Austin A40 Devon Van restored to how the originals would have looked.
The colour was red and silver.
I have also seen some photo`s of the A35 van finished in the same livery.

On the van sides it is coach painted, " Austin Service" .

A little bit different I thought.

The Austin A30 van is now back on the road.

At the outset we wanted to keep as much of the original items during its refurbishment rather than a through away all the old stuff type of restoration.

The bodyshell was really solid and required only some localised welding to some small areas.

We have used the original chromework, interior, lighting etc.

The only new items we replaced were new rubber window seals,door seals and rubber gaskets and grommets etc.

A new interior carpet set has been fitted.

I only intended initially to respray the exterior of the van, but during the re-spraying stage I took the decision to respray the interior as well.

This has turned the van from being a very smart shop truck/ parts carrier to a vehicle that can be taken to shows at the weekend also.
