1966 Volkswagen Campervan Split Screen MICROBUS


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.
