Some fraying/aging of carpet around front seats as can be expected with a vehicle of this age. Middle seats are removable so there is an option for more space and back seat bench folds down. Currently using as a bed with bespoke upholstered foam and mattress topper that will sleep two people of medium height but there is scope to create a more permanent bed. Also comes with custom T25 suction thermal blinds for all windows.
Exterior - there is typical T25 seamrust (as shown in pictures) and some superficial rusting in cab steps, however, chassis is fully sound and rust-free. Dent in near-side rear wheel arch that needs hammering/filling (see picture).
