Buying a HK Panel Van

Hey there, I'm pretty new to this game but I'm interested in buying a HK Panel van. The guy was asking 3500 but it hasn't sold. here's the description: Its your chance to buy a piece of australian history, someone has spent a lot of time and money on this van, it has just about every GTS option available; bonnet, guards, steering wheel, dash, premier wood grain dash. It has a HQ diff in it and HQ disc brake front end. Selling in as is condition (unreg) needs someone who has time to finish project.

I emailed him and he said that there is very little rust(a bubble or two behind the rear wheels) and the engine runs well, also the rego ran out 29/11/04. Aside from that I don't know too much about it.
Just wondering what you guys think would be a reasonable offer and is there anything with the HK's to watch out for? Thanks a lot lads. Matt.

Take the panels off the inside of the rear quarters and shine a torch down and have a look for either rust, previous repairs, or bog. Run your hand over the inside of the panel to feel for any dents, which wont be shown on the outside if its been repainted/bogged. The front floors are also prone for cancer so remove any carpet and have a good look. Lowers of the doors and gaurds are also spots to inspect. Crawl underneath and check out the subframe for any rust. Mechanicals are straight foward to repair, the body is the costly part. Have a look at my shed for my 2 HK van projects which should give you an idea of where to find the rust. http://gallery.oldho...
