Mercedes Benz James Cook 312D Westfalia - IMPEACHABLE > SOLD

About 3 years ago we've bought an extraordinary James Cook for the purpose of some investigation traveling around Europe. Once we've discovered this model we tireless searched till we've found it in UK - where we went to buy it.
Now that we've settled, we've decided that its time for someone else to benefit of this great vehicle.
We're in Portugal, near Lisbon.

Here's a quite long description.
