Went to Historics at Phillip Island last week end- saw this one driving in traffic in Melbourne on the Friday , found it parked in the top paddock at Phillip Is on the weekend - anyone know it?

Im not normally a fan of vans purely because of the shape but that yellow gem may have changed my views.

Still have BabyBlue.
Nearly 39 years old.
I bought her from Telecom auction in April 1986 when I was 23 years old.
An old photo but still the same today.

Hi TC,
That is a sweet looking ride. I was in the bus heading to Phillip Is on Friday when I saw it, really caught my attention and I craned my neck looking through the window for as long as I could until it went out of sight. Len

This Sundowner was bought new by a close mate of mine in 1980.
It was the second Wedgewood Blue Sundowner he owned.
He killed both. i haven't yet forgiven him.....

Hi Peter,
That blue van is an unusual colour, only ever seen Sundowners in brighter colours with the usual side decals. Len

Hi Len,
I bought the van from Telecom in April 1986. It was originally Sno white.
Started to paint it in 1990 however because back then there were a million white escort vans around, at the last moment before painting I thru some blue tinter into the white paint. In 2000 I repainted it again to a slightly darker blue which is what it still is today.
It's fun to drive it not only because it is an older car, but because the bright "BabyBlue" colour contrasts so much in traffic with the drab silver and black metallic colours most people seem to choose for the modern cars today.

Gidday fellow vanners. I just bought my first panelvan. It’s a 79 1600. Originally wedgewood with tan seats. Just wondering if anyone can tell me. It’s got windows in the sides at the back. I’ve seen different placements of these rear windows. Sometimes there’s a pair on each side, sometimes one towards the back and sometimes one closer to the front. We’re these all added later or what? Also wondering where the spare wheel went. Did it just sit in the back? Hoping some of you experts might be able to help a noob out. Chook

spare wheel sits behind the passenger seat, under the floor but only will fit with a very skinny 13in tyre, or  if you lucky enough to find a sundowner bracket that sits the wheel passenger side at the rear, i can take pics if you like,
from my experience the ones with one windows on the sides were normally work vehicles but i may be wrong
