VW T25 1982 AIR-COOLED 2.0l petrol Holdsworth Villa pop-top RHD (MOT/tax/ULEZ exempt)

For sale: my 1982 air-cooled T25 nicknamed ‘Lenny’. Very close to my heart, I purchased this van in 2019 and have taken it as far as Portugal, as well as regular trips in England and Wales.

It is a registered HISTORIC VEHICLE meaning no MOT, no tax, and no London ULEZ charge

About the van:
Lenny is a RHD early-model T25 meaning that he has the more reliable (than the later water-cooled models) and oh-so-classic AIR-COOLED petrol engine, which in this larger 2.0l version is fuelled by twin carburettors. Vroom vroom.

The (original) engine has been regularly serviced by VW specialists—most recently Jacks Garage in Ladbroke Grove. In 2023 it had a full service including new wiring, timing adjustment, carburettor tuning and steam cleaning. It is in good working order although any owner should expect to do regular maintenance.

Mileage is 92,996. FULL SERVICE HISTORY included.

Work done since 2019 includes:
⁃ New front tyres
⁃ New front wheel bearings
⁃ New exhaust silencer and tailpipe
⁃ New front brake pads
⁃ Regular oil change and service including new oil filter, fuel filter, and air filter.
⁃ Brake fluid last replaced in 2023

About the camper conversion:
This is an original conversion by Holdsworth in their ‘Villa’ style with a side-hinged pop-top and full kitchen inside. The gas hobs and dual gas/electric Electrolux fridge work very well. There is a rock and roll double bed/seat and plenty of storage. When popped up, there is an additional sleeping area in the roof, which also provides headroom for cooking. This is all in generally good condition, although the side hinges could do with replacing (this does not impart the lifting of the roof, which is held up by internal piston rods). The front seat is a rotating ‘captains chair’ allowing it to turn round and face the inside of the van.

Additionally includes:
⁃ Full stereo hifi system with USB input
⁃ LED lighting
⁃ Fiamma bike rack and rain cover included
⁃ Back door support pistons have been upgraded so that they hold the door up even with two bikes attached!
⁃ Really robust ARB side awning
⁃ New leisure battery (2023)
⁃ Gas cylinder and spare included
⁃ Thetford chemical toilet included (optional)
⁃ Insulating/reflective window covers
⁃ Fiamma levelling ramps
