Hi everyone, I recently purchased a barnfind Barkas B1000 in quite a good shape! First thing for me to do is get the car MOT ready, which seems to only be a matter of getting the engine running (it turns fine, just old fluids), refurbishing the brakes (they're slightly stuck, but the Van rolls...) and patching up a few holes in the wheelarches and drivers footwell. I've called my local road authority agency since the chassis number only consits of 6 digits. Whilst they said that's not a problem, they couldn't find any recent history of the car being owned in Europe either. It's been off the road for at least 5 years, and has been owned by multiple German companies based on old stickers left on the bus. I was told to collect as much data on the car as I could find, so we can establish new plates and data. One of the things I was wondering about, is the year of the car. It has the external hinges for the side door instead of a slider, and if I'm correct that at least makes it pre 1987. Are there other ways to determine the year of the car? I'll post some pictures later, currently at work Thanks!
