    Wow you reckon a Hvan is slow .... .Try a 3.5ton rigid truck with a wheezy traction avant motor in it It must have 4 reduction boxes and a loaded top speed of 30mph !

    Interesting. Presume they swing the motor around the other way for RWD. I note it has a four speed which would help , although you reckon they would have used the later DS ID motor.

    Here's the bus version. I watched it leave. Yes, slow is the right word.
