I have a 1965 Coronet van that I have recently purchased and am in the process of restoring.
There is some great historical information available for Coronet (YouTube etc), but I am not finding many older Coronet vans showing on any internet search engines.
I am wondering if there simply aren't many older Coronet vans out there or perhaps people aren't showing them via the internet.
I would love to hear from anyone who can direct me to sites / people with pics etc of older Coronet vans....I have been in touch with Andrew from Coronet - but would like to understand more about their early colour schemes and also some pics of restored vans.
Unfortunately this forum has exceeded its upload limit and I am unable to show some of my pics here....any idea how this can be rectified please?
Once you've digested that info, you can do a search of the forum to see what else is around. If you're not familiar with how the search function works on this forum, have a look at the pictures I posted in this thread showing how to do it. Just substitute the word 'coronet' for the word 'sunliner'.
If your van is genuinely a Coronet, you may find the chassis number welded on the inside of the channel of the drawbar arm on the doorside. Get a torch and lie on your back and slide in under the drawbar, about where the arm disappears under the front of the van. Look for a number welded inside the channel there. Let us know if you find anything.
Thanks mate for this information. Andrew from Coronet confirmed it is a circa '65 Coronet but isn't sure of the model.
I have posted the link to some pictures (hope the link works!), of purchase photos & restoration underway pics. the van has a the chassis number on the drawbar & the number is 1592, it is written in chalk in side the front panel...you can just make it out on one of the pics below.
Hi all, I think I have purchased this exact van, any help in finding the same cladding would be grrrreat. Only want to repair the front panel under window, was thinking I could attach curved plain sheet on both sides if I cant get the original stuff.
