We used Sherpa vans in the RAF in the 70's and early 80's (I got one jammed under a Vulcan bomber once, long story...). We then switched to LDV's in the mid/late 80's.

The Sherpas felt lighter and quicker, handled really well for a van and were definitely more reliable - I recall that the LDV's would drain their batteries if left standing for a fortnight.

An old Sherpa would definitely work as a a base for a vintage car. It's just a real shame that this one has a Q plate.
