Hello from Finland

I have just bought together with my brother a cargo blue CF250 van, originally with Perkins 1,8 diesel. It has been standing for decades but the intention is to get it running and back to utility use very quickly. It has an engine swap done, and is carrying an Opel 2,3 diesel currently. The engine is running but there is some work to be done with the body, new sheet metal and welding is required and the instrument panel is out from a petrol version and wire harness is a mess. On top of these, the brakes are also quite jammed. But we shall make it work!

Our family has had in the past 3 similar cars with various engines and one we did put to pieces so we have some spare parts also.
