Del Boy's van drives to auction19 November 2021 "Stick a pony in me pocket, I'll fetch the suitcase from the van..."
...so began the lyrics to the theme tune of one of Britain's greatest sitcom's Only Fools and Horses.
And the van in question is up for auction.
Many models of Del Boy's van would have been used in filming the show over many seasons. This particular one was used in various official publicity roles by both the BBC and independent companies.
It has been featured on memorabilia and merchandise and notably the leopard print DVD Complete Series Box Set.
This van once belonged to Perry Aghajanoff, president of the Only Fools & Horses Appreciation Society, and whenever a van was needed for publicity purposes, this was the model that was offered up.
It has also featured in dozens of television appearances relating to the show (such as documentaries and news reports).
The interior of the driver's door was signed by Sir David Jason who played Del Boy – adding his iconic catchphrase 'Lovely Jubbly!' to his autograph.
You can bid for the iconic Del Boy van in the sale at East Bristol Auctions to be hold on December 6. It has an estimate of £15,000-20,000; 'Cushtie' as Del might say.
Other Only Fools memorabilia in the auction includes:
