Maestro vans are rare enough these days, but to find one in such unbelievably tidy, original condition as this really is something else.
Having started life as a sweet and confectionery sales van, it appears to have survived without the rigours of the usual commercial vehicle use and is undoubtedly one of the best surviving examples left on the road, as reflected by the fact that bidding is already over £1,800 with over four days to go.
There are hundreds of low mileage cars of this era coming out of the woodwork at the moment, but commercial vehicles are a wholly different ballgame. With 23k on the clock, seats that look like they’ve never been sat in and virtually flaw-free bodywork, it would certainly be a challenge to find another. But what price beauty, eh?
The time has certainly come for 1980s classics. And for most fans of this site, we reckon that’s a good thing!
