Description

1962 split screen westfalia so33 camper van patina ride. This is a rare and sort after model that has the super cool sub hatch roof. You often see so 42s and some so23s but there can only be a handful of these so33s in the UK. This is an early 62 small back window model with flat arches. thick lip dog legs and ice pick handles.
This van has undergone a restoration in 2013 but retaining the patina exterior. It has had all new cargo floors, cab floors, outriggers, jacking points, inner sills, outer sills, rear corners, dog legs. etc. etc. all of the rust that plagues these vehicles has been removed and top-quality auto craft panels have been expertly welded in. All the non-structural surface rust has been left as this adds to the patina. Great care and attention to detail has been paid to ensure excellent panel gaps and alignment. All the repairs have then been blended to match the original patina. The paint on this van is an old paint job in the original colours of turkis blue and white. Underneath this van looks like new and has been treated with black 2k stone chip all over. this looks very neat and will protect this van for many years to come.
All of the rubber seals were replaced with Wolfsburg west rubbers. Inside all the dash and interior metal have been sprayed and restored to look like new. The restored steering wheel has some chips and hairline cracks in the paint but to be expected through use.

This van has been lowered with an irs conversion in the rear and a 2-inch narrowed adjustable beam in the front. It also has dropped spindles and a raised steering box. This whole package is driven by a strong running 1500 single port engine. The previous owner said the engine had a recent rebuild but I have no receipts to show this.
The original so33 interior has been replaced, it has been lined with birch ply as per the original. It has a full width rock and roll bed which has been professionally upholstered.

All of the wiring has been gone through and replaced where necessary. The fuse box has also been replaced with a modern blade type to ensure perfect connections. All the mechanicals have also been gone through and replaced where necessary. It has 12 months mot. The van was originally delivered to Seattle but came to the UK from Texas. The m code plate is still in place showing the model, options, and colour. I really do recommend viewing this van to see the quality of the work that has gone into it.

I have had the vehicle 8 years and I’m only selling as it has not been used for the past 3 years (apart from the odd quick run around the village or the annual trip to the MOT station) and I would like the space it takes up in my barn back.
The van always has a service and MOT every year irrelevant of whether it needs it or not and dry stored in my barn.

I have a Vango Airbeam awning that will go this van and it is ready to enjoy now. thanks for looking. I have many more photos along with all the restoration photos available. See below for a list of features.
