Too much rust GMC safari cargo ?
« on: July 03, 2016, 09:46:43 PM »
Hi,

I wanted peoples opinions before I get a van. I'm new to this and going solo!

Is this too much rust? The 60,000 mileage is low for its age (1999). This checks out legally with the service records, its just been in the same town forever. Its selling at 1000 GBP. Resale potential doesn't really concern me but I'm aware this is penetrative rust that either needs cutting out (unlikely) or treatment to slow it so I can get a couple of years.

Would really appreciate advice or info. Thanks in advance :)

That looks like an MOT failure. If you can weld or know someone that can then I would have second thoughts about this van. Don't forget the rust you can see is not the whole story/ Check under the van at the frame and see if there is rust there as well.
