Story:
Commissioned for restoration in 2003, this Microbus underwent a full nut and bolt restoration in the hands of a classic VW specialist. 4 years later, we finally took delivery of the straightest and most immaculate bus in the UK.

The bus had 99539 genuine miles on the shell at the point of restoration, but with a complete engine refurb resulting in a zero mile engine and a newly built restored chassis to match, the odometer was changed and now reads 22206 miles. After 11 years with the original rebuilt 1300cc engine, the lack of power was becoming a bit of a chore. In 2018 we made the decision to have a brand new 1776cc Twin Carb engine built. This new engine has covered less than 500 miles.

At the time of restoration, we had not yet decided which way to go with the interior. We carefully preserved the interior (which at some point was changed from bus to camper) with the view to use it as a template at some point and create something new. Unfortunately, This never happened and we found ourselves using the van as a van, rather than a camper for which it was intended.

With family life, age and other things getting in the way, the bus has not had the use we would have liked over the past few years. With less than 500 miles being put on the new engine since its install 3 years ago.

The history of this van is extensive. We have a full restoration catalogue and a huge parts list and spec from the new engine.

This Bus is immaculate and wants for nothing. Always garaged and maintained at whatever expense. Restoration and maintenance has been completed by the same classic VW Specialist since it was restored.

Viewing is very welcome. This vehicle does have to be seen to be appreciated and you will not see another one in this condition.

If you would like to see videos, more images, or just ask a question, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The asking price is £21500 but we are open to offers. Looking at the market value, it's very hard to place this van as it's in better condition than almost everything, but It doesn't have an interior. The original interior can be supplied but it would not be fit for use without some work.

Thank you for your interest. We welcome any enquiries.
