I have owned this 1973 VW Bay Window since 2014 which is originally from Greece (microbus). After I purchasing the vehicle it undertook a full restoration from bare shell. Since 2014 it has been used as a wedding hire vehicle. In 2020 I carried out a full respray (internal and external) in gun metal grey (T5), (the paint is mixed with a glitter enhancer which is extra visible in sunlight). The paint is maintained annually and there are no visible scratches/ dents in the bodywork. The underside is protected with underseal and cavity wax inside the chassis rails and doors. The cab floor and the cargo floor are protected with an application of Raptor.
This VW Campervan has -
A brand new rusty lee rock and roll bed (with a memory foam mattress)
Two new rusty lee buddy seats
New coconut hair cushions (cab seats and buddy seats)
New upholstery in Malvern marine fabric
New hand cut door cards in matching fabric
New wood flooring
New rubber mats in the cab area
New top quality door and window rubbers
New Wolfsburg west wing mirrors
A wooden steering wheel and stainless steel boss
Digital bluetooth headset and speakers with hands free
A perforated headliner in white
Mechanically the vehicle does not want for anything it has -
New 1600 engine (with 2000 miles )
Vintage speed exhaust
Vintage speed gearstick
New engine battery
New engine tin wear
It runs great, is regularly serviced, MOT'd each year and mechanically checked before each wedding hire.
This VW Campervan is set up as a 'day van' with no cooking equipment/ cupboards. However it can easily be used for camping with an awning and camping set up outside or a 'camping set up' could easily be installed inside. It would also make a great investment for a small business - wedding hire, photo booth, sweet shop ect.
I have lots of photos of the vehicle before, during and after any work completed. A walk around video can be provided on request. Viewings welcome.
