1975' Renault Estafette
For sale here is my lovely Renault Estafette coffee/hot drinks van painted in Mazda vintage red and creamy white. Drives great. Manufactured in 1975 and spent it's first 4 years of life as a village fire engine in the south of France. I bought the van 2 years ago freshly imported from France and had it fully resprayed. Sad to be selling but I've never used her for trading in and my plans have now completely changed.
8 months MOT (sailed through with no advisories in both MOT's since I've owned the van)
Fully serviced April 2017
All work history (hardly any) paperwork since i've owned the van present
77,000km on the clock
New Duracell battery
New starter motor
Engine in great condition
Solid rust free chassis professionally undersealed
Brakes in excellent condition
Tyres have loads of tread in them
Interior professionally converted with the following:
LPG/gas + electricity connections + fittings all plumbed in
Fracino Contempo duel fuel espresso machine lpg (never used)
Parry 27 ltr lpg water boiler/tea urn (never used)
LPG/gas is the recommended and standard way to power catering vans. Much cheaper than electricity which will require a large, expensive and noisy petrol generator. You basically want to run everything including generator on lpg/gas.
Coffee grinder (purchased refurbished/previously used full working order)
Coffee knock out box
Stainless steel counters
Double sink - hot + cold water
Sealed gas bottle compartment (holds the recommended 2 x 13kg gas bottles)

Hand made wooden cupboard doors (some quite stiff to open but all do open)
Large storage shelf above drivers cab
Original fire engine blue flashing light for roof (will need reconnecting)
Gas safety cert will need doing (approx £80)
Elec safety cert will need doing + elec water boiler for hot water/hand wash tap will need connecting to vans elec system but it's a small job + I was quoted approx £150 for both jobs.
I have a brand new never used Honda EU20i lpg/duel fuel generator (ideal model to use with the van) for sale separately also. If interested please email me for details/price etc
The van also has a 'Roadrunner' cartoon sounding horn which can only be a bonus I think.
The white paint in the middle of the roof (exterior) is starting to wear away a bit so could ideally do with a lick of paint but it isn't noticeable from the ground/standing level. There are a few small/minor paint bubble/rust spots on the body of the van but again nothing major.
All in all it's a really nice little van that drives great and has a lot of money earning potential as a business. It turns heads wherever I go and I have received many thumbs up and compliments.
