1975 Devon T2 Eurovette?

Postby tjbrestorrations » Sun Sep 18, 2011 3:36 pm

I have recently started to restore a sad 1975 Devon T2 on an N Plate. The outside and underneath is not the problem. The inside and what layout was original. I have removed all the fixtures and it appears to have a sink and cooker unit behind the sliding door. I think the sink and cooker unit have been altered and it should have a swing out cooker on the left of the sliding door, am I correct? To all those with more knowledge than me, many thanks.
Regards Phil

Hi Phil and welcome to the forum. I have seen some vans with the layout you describe.
My own is a 1969 caravette and has the cooker on the right as you enter the sliding door, no sink and two buddy seats, wardrobe and cool unit on the left. I have only seen one van with a L/H swing out cooker unit though. Hope this helps :)

Welcome to the forums, Phil.
I have a '76 Devon Eurovette. The sink and fridge unit in on the right as you enter the sliding door and extends back as far as the spare wheel well. The swing out cooker is on the left of the slider, behind the passenger bulkhead. Behind the driver bulkhead is a wardrobe and buddy seat.

Here are a few piccies for reference:

Hope they help. :)

I had many happy years with a Eurovette, also on an 'N' plate. 8-)

I hope you'll keep us updated with progress on your restoration!

Hi Phil , good luck with restoration , i have 1973/4 Devon all as above,i have extra buddy seat between drivers and passenger seats, which cant see on above pics but might be an addition, may be wrong but think they had cool unit originally before peeps changed to fridge?? Swing out cooker on left is defo and great on a sunny day to cook outside and keep smells out of van and give bit more space inside, great little vans, i love mine , enjoy it and have fun!!

The fridge was an option for the Eurovette from 1976 onwards.

Image

The seat box that went between the front seats was only fitted from 73 to 75 (I think). One of it's functions was to be reversed and used as a seat at the dining table. However, from 76 the buddy seat behind the driver bulkhead had a fold over flap that legs were screwed to that acted as a second dining seat.

I did wonder whether the fridge was an option.
I think I've got that options list, come to think of it, along with a couple of Eurovette brochures I got from the showroom, when they were being sold new!

Also, if my memory serves me correctly, when the cooker is swung out its detachable top then slots into a fitting on the passenger seat bulkhead, and then a table leg can be screwed into the underside and hey presto, an additional bit of work surface is formed! All clever stuff!

Brill thanks doug i did wonder what that leg srew hole/bracket was for!! ive fitted extra flap on side of my cooker which ive made a leg for which once cooker is swung out., it gives me extra work surface next to cooker in door opening when cooking outside, good to see your original paperwork.My buddy between seats has removable back rest too, clever peeps these G er mans!! ;) Woow just noticed ive got the original seat covers on mine too, thought they looked very 70s kitch :o Cheers boys always learning on here which keeps me addicted.

You're welcome, Jon. :)

I like the idea of your extra bit of work surface, when the cooker is swung out!

Hmm. I replied this morning but the post seems to have disappeared. :roll:

Anyway, for a 75 onwards Eurovette you should have 6 table legs - 4 long and 2 short.
The long ones are used for the table (1 for indoor use, 4 for outdoor use) and the cooker cover worktop and the 2 shorter ones for the fold out buddy seat.

Use phtotobucket, joneb.
It's by far the easiest way to post pictures on the forum.

Here are a few pix of my buddy seat -

No, they're your pics.
If you set the albums to private only you can access and view them as well. Photobucket is easy to use once you get going.
