That looks like a manual clutch to me Neil...

Albeit a bit of a posh one...

When I first saw the picture of the motor/gearbox assembly suspended from the hoist in the van it reminded me of a large champagne bottle (something like Veuve Clicquot), which I see regularly every June. Cannot afford one though.

TINC.........apparently Think.Inspire.Create Shops all over the place but not yet hit the Toon or Scotland. here's one of their products.......an electric rubber :!: Looks like the Milton Keynes former Blott shop is being rebranded as Tinc...(sounds like something from Reggie Perrin :) )hence the promotional H-Van. Vinyl Wrap or Paint job?

Came across this outfit who use as part of their vehicle transportation business a vintage RAC Landrover.

This was an HVan heading for Milton Keynes if the caption is accurate...

Would this count as an h van (intentional lowercase H)?
