Educate me about the AR F12 or A12 Van,

Please educate me about does and don't of these.

Is this something I could drive to the track and "camp" in for the weekend?

Thanks,
ncng

I had a 1979 Perkins-diesel F12. If I had a choice, I'd get a gas-engine one and put a 2000 in. The diesel tops out a couple thousand rpm below the gas engine, so you get effectively longer gearing with a gas engine. And of course more power if you want it.

I loved mine, but it was rusty and made very little sense to own. I did 2200 miles in it from Chicago to California, then used it to bump around it for a year, before selling. Not the easiest vehicle to own due to limited parts etc. But fun.

Hi, please look at the Facebook Group Alfa Romeo Furgone A12, F12 ....

About 100 enthousiasts for Alfa Romeo vans and trucks, mostly F12. And a lot of pictures to find there.

I saw a F12 Alfa van today at the Woodley Park French and Italian Show. The van was carrying two motorcycles. I have not seen a van since the early 1970's when Alfa used them as service vans.
