This unique van is in excellent condition having been fully stripped down and rebuilt to a very high standard. Our aim was to restore this historic vehicle in such a way that the interior is comfortable, clean and up to date, but at the same time retaining many of its 1970’s features such as the original colour and equipment. This left hand drive, walk through camper came from Holland, which means that it has not had to endure salt treated winter roads of the UK, and is kept in a garage parked on a wooden floor with a dehumidifier during the winter. This means the floor panel and bodywork and interior are in very good condition.
