In 1966 the £18 seat works out in todays money as £303.96
The £5 fitting is £84.43
And the van itself ( £408 ) works out as £6889.77

So grand total of a restall converted van was

£7278.16 :shock:
Hardly cheap :lol:

A bit late posting Owen MC Chairman, some old chap :lol: , my Imp and Fuzz Townsend. Taken at the NEC Restoration show earlier this year :D
I got him to sign the picture of his restored Imp, which is what inspired me to buy and modify an Imp :)
He did say he wished he hadn't sold it :roll: Thanks to John Simister for arranging 8)
