In France we mark out of 20. I'd give you a 7 for grammar, spelling and vocab, and a 12 for trying.

Bon courage,

Robin

Wish good luck to you and Petitrobin in restoration of your van.

thank you for your welcome Philbradshaw and Dave

for my white cf 1977, I have buy it like the photo in 2001 but it is in restauration now, since 2008 and I have put on a roof like the autosleeper, I installed windows on sides, I made and installed a dashboard and I restored the engine. That's all for the moment.

Here's the 280 we picked up last weekend:

It's not really broken down. It just needs a good battery and the preheaters sorting to make it easier to start. We had to tow start it last time. It also needs a lot of welding on the arches and floors, but it is a late modes 5 speed diesel with all the bells and whistles.

Manu is planning to turn it into a pickup, or so he tells me, so if you've got any info about the 'Montréal' model, he'd be interested.

thank you for your help Robin

Effectively, I would like to reconstruct this model.

Two years ago I had found a copy to be sold on a site of annoncements but it was bought by somebody else.

This model was created by a French society wich was called "V.I.P.E." on CF2's base.

I think this 280 could be a good working base for that.

thank you for your help if you known anything else about this model.

Manu

I don't hear about "Pick-up ... Montréal' model. ... This model was created by a French society wich was called "V.I.P.E." on CF2's base."
Do you have any photos of it? How does it look like?
I can try to search through my huge pix gallery.
May be I will find more photos or info.
