A visit to Peak 2CV in Matlock in January was meant to be for a bit of routine maintenance for the little Red Van.....but a few days later I had the phone call .....we need a new chassis!!!!!This isn't the news you want to hear. Obviously the cost of a new chassis and the labour to fit wasn't in the plan and will hit us hard, but she's to good not to repair, so at present we are awaiting a chassis to be handmade which has pushed back the coffee conversion back by a few months.
Still, this gives plenty of time to plan the conversion to make sure we get it right first time. Its important to us Little Red is a fully functioning, drivable van so it can travel to events rather than being a trailer queen. The 600cc engine might not pack much punch, with a maximum speed of 48mph but it will still be going strong after the new chassis has been fitted soon.
Hopefully she will be on the road again in the next few months and ready to take bookings around mid June 2019 ... I will keep you all posted!
