1975 VW T2 Late bay Australian import

£20,000.00
CB23
Meet Bruce, our Australian T2. He emigrated to the UK in 2016 and has had annual MOTs done since then for piece of mind, though not needed. The speedo changed from kms to miles in 2018 hence changed in odometer reading. Current speedo says 64000, though this is not accurate. He currently has a clean MOT with no advisories from Sep 2023.

It is an Australian SOPRU conversion with a spring loaded pop up roof.
4 berth with 3 cushions making up the top sleeping area suitable for 2 kids or one adult.
Van Wurks kitchen cupboards, twin hob gas burner and leisure battery operated fridge. It also has mains hook up which can operate the fridge and anything else via the 3 pin UK plug.
Designer “Cirkelblomma” curtains from Hus and Hem. Double sided, so the colourful fabric is visible from outside and in, with complementing tie backs and incorporated blackout lining.
Full width rear seat with two 3 point rear seat belts and a lap belt in the middle.
Alpine Bluetooth stereo with Pioneer speakers
Gas powered Propex heater installed

Being from an inland part of Australia, the underneath of the van is solid and bodywork in general is excellent apart from the odd scratch and dent and some slight bubbling on the rear wheelarches and one of the sills. It can be seen from the MOT history that there is no mention of corrosion.

He drives great and comfortably sits at 60-70 when needed.

Insured for 31k
