1973 Camper van, Historic vehicle, Tax, MOT & U.L.E.Z. exempt & low insurance classic car premiums
(1)26917 miles (KATRINA)
Van bodywork was totally rebuilt, fully primer-ed, under-sealed & resprayed with brand new genuine VW 1584cc engine fitted at (1)12517 miles, so has only been driven 14,398 miles since then.
During early 2020 I repainted the exterior as there were a few areas starting to show a little corrosion. My intention was to also fully refurbish the interior to match the outside, but as with everything over the past 18 months the pandemic had other ideas when it came to my time & sadly I'll have to hand that baton over to her next happy owner.
A VERY reluctant sale as I have had this old girl since Feburary 14th 1999 and as I said spent tens of thousands on her over the past couple of decades keeping her solid and truly road worthy. Although not quite perfect yet with only a few finishing touches she certainly will be and as much as it breaks my heart to sell "part of my family", it breaks even more that this fine van is not getting the use she so richly deserves.
She's not had very much use over the past few years but I still start her up every week or so & the engine still runs great.
Mechanically sound throughout with only a few small to-do jobs still on my list. The van but would benefit a brake servo overhaul as standing on the drive not being driven far obviously does her no favours. The brakes are still working but the last time used the pedal felt a lot softer than I felt comfortable with. Worst case scenario there is a full refit servo kit including master cylinder etc. available on here for around £280 all in.
4/5 berth Westfalia interior with later Richard Holdsworth pop top roof. 240v & 12v leisure battery electric hook up. twin burner gas cooker, stainless steel sink, drawer unit with space for 12V fridge (see available extras), wardrobe & original swivel table. Rock n' Roll bed plus double bunk fits above in the pop top.
Recently fitted new back lights, wing mirrors, front door handles & barrels, black vinyl cab door cards, inside door handles, three brand new rear seat belts.
I also have a brand new ignition barrel & keys ready to fit. Gear stick linkage recently replaced
I also have lots of extras available that can be negotiated as part of the deal if so required. These include extra front child's bunk, thermal mats for all windows and pop top interior. 240v/12v fridge, large drive away awning (with bedroom compartment) and lots of other VW camper related stuff. I have also obtained enough light blue REAL leather to re upholster both the front & rear seats.
