£28,000

Volkswagen Campervan Additional Information

Built in March 1966, this double door VW Microbus spent its early years in Sweden, before coming to the UK in the 90s. It is a LHD model, has covered approx 66,000 miles & we believe it was also featured in Volksworld mag circa 2001. Family owned for 25 years & has provided countless road trips & holidays; the stickers in the rear window telling a small part of the fun this camper has facilitated. This VW was the subject of an older restoration (approx. 23 years ago) in VW Guinea Blue with white top & while the body was remarkably solid at the time, it was still treated to new sills, outriggers & jacking points, rear corners & battery tray. The restoration work has held up very well, & only a few areas of surface rust can be found on what is still a very presentable vehicle. It has the original & well favoured 1500cc single port aircooled engine mated to a Cogbox rebuilt gearbox. A stainless-steel exhaust takes care of fumes & the standard heat exchangers are in place & in good working order. A gas-fuelled Eberspacher aux heater has been fitted. The suspension remains standard, as do the brakes, which have recently received new wheel cylinders & a fluid change. A replacement steering box has also been fitted. The wheels have been shot blasted, zinc primed, painted body colour & lacquered at the time of the restoration, finished with triple-chrome hubcaps. White wall tyres complete the classic looky. A full-size spare, with matching paint, tyre & hubcap is also included. Inside a Devon interior from a 1968 Type 2 has been carefully installed, with the addition of a much sought after Canterbury Pitt cooker. This conversion offers a great seating layout for socialising & dining but can be arranged to create a double bed for sleeping. 12volt electrics fitted incl a Sony stereo system with CD multichanger. There is also a CB radio for all your retro-road trip needs.
