    4x4/Small Van etc

    Hi all,

    17 soon so will be learning to drive. Looking for a cheap (both to buy and insure) truck. Budget about 1000, and I know I'm asking for alot for not much. Would be happy to do work on it if needs be (Im guessing it will!). Looking for whatever really, ideally a Defender, but whatever really, a small van (Astra ,Combo ,Transit Connect etc) would be good.


    PM or post welcome.

    If you get a Defender for less than a grand, that runs, I'll be very surprised. You'd get a 200 or 300 TDI Disco for that price though, 200's were prone to head gaskets going about 70-90k, most or all that are still on the road will have been done by now.

    Hi Sam

    One of these would be ideal for your first stalking vehicle,


    Suzuki Vitara, but this one comes with a 1.9 Peugeot turbo diesel engine fitted from the factory, cheap to run and will get anywhere; I have embarrassed Land rover owners in it more than once.

    They come up on e-bay every now and again, your should be able to pick one up for 1,000
