that one's a bit more obvious than usual, its the older talisman body from the talbot late 80's early 90's.

I've seen a few other post 95 which have been cloned.

As far as I'm aware all Autosleepers of that era were converted on the Peugeot chassis. If you have one on a Fiat or Citroen there's probably a story behind it.

AS did do a few on a Fiat chassis but that's definitely a body for a Talbot!
There's a travellers site near me and some weird concoctions appear out front for sale.

I asked people who worked there between 1988-2000 and they are sure they only converted on peugeot.

What makes you say they converted fiats.

I have seen 3 or 4 talisman/executives with Fiat fronts but they weren't original and had been tampered with/cloned etc.

I've just checked my photo library and yes, you're right the Fiat 'Boxer' shape was only used on the Sussex and Dorset van conversions.
The Fiat 'Talbot' shape was used for the Talisman II, Executive and Harmony van conversion.
