hi i have approved your posts as new members are moderated, ask your group rep to get you upgraded on the site as you can then see lots more, as for the nine seats forward facing i cant think of any to hand but maybe another member will. welcome along though.

Mercedes Sprinter 4x4 minibus (Rare)
VW Transporter 4-Motion Minibus (Rare)
Iveco Daily 4x4 minibus (less common than rocking horse sh*t and not made since 2006 as the Daily 4x4 is now only available as a chassis cab version)

An older Defender 110 Station Wagon could be adapted, replacing the rear sideways benches with genuine or aftermarket forward facing seats. Actually scratch that, only 8 seats.

Would have to be a 130 based bus, specially made from the likes of Foley...

And good luck getting insurance!

How about an American 4x4, one of the big jobbies. Escalade or similar.

I Think the Escalade is only a 5 seater, even a Chevy Tahoe / GMC Yukon is only 8 seater.

Apart from the van based 4x4 mini buses - VW, Mercedes, Toyota Townace (only import) etc, there isn't much out there.


Only kidding really but you could try and find a UAZ 452 Bukhanka - built like a brick shed, drive like one but can cope with just about any type of terrain (as long as it doesn't fall over).

Cheers
Andy
