We have a Propert Folding Van for sale in Far North Queensland. The Van was purchased over 40 years ago by my father who loved the way it worked and he used it around this area for a number of years.It has sat unused for around 20 years and now the property it is on has been sold, so the van has to go.It is in need of some restoration, particularly the outer shell.Inside is original but again in need of some TLC.See attached photos. Having trouble putting up the photos so if anyone can tell me how to do so please advise. I have a feeling that the annex may still be there also. Please email me and I can provide more information that you require.
After cleaning the van out and giving it the once over, my wife and I have decided we will keep the van for the moment and do it up ourselves. I had forgotten just how clever and “cute” the design is and the simplicity of them.I would ask the moderators to either shift the post or delete it, whichever is the correct thing to do.For the ones that sent PM’s, many thanks and I will post more photos along the way.
Well nearly 5 years on and the Propert has sat in my shed and not had a thing done to it. So now it I has to go to a new home. I need guidance on what it is worth. The van was brought by my father from a mining company based in Herberton far North Queensland. They had two of them and used them for their exploration teams. My father brought it in the early 1970’s. Depending on its value I have an option of donating it to the Herberton historic village where it could be displayed and restored in it’s original environment. www.historicvillageherberton.com.au/ Thanks for any guidance and this time it unfortunately will go to a new home.
