1971 VW T2 Bay Window Camper Van. Right Hand Drive. Pop Top Roof. Meticulously Restored and cared for.

One of the most meticulously looked after buses we have presented to the market having been owned by a serious enthusiast who sadly had to sell the bus on only due to his age and change in circumstances.

‘Costa’, as he has been aptly named is a factory right hand drive, desirable walk through camper van, ideal in that you can walk from the front to the rear of the vehicle without the need to exit. The bus also benefits from a modern pop top roof conversion that elevates with gas strut assistance making it effortless for the operator, far superior to that of the early 1960s designs.

The bus is effectively a 4 berth with a small slide out double bed in the pop top roof area suitable for children / small adults and a full width rock n roll bed in the main camping area. There is also always the option to add a driveaway awning that can be purchased separately to increase the habitable area even further.

The bus has been subject to a thorough restoration by specialists Johnson Autoworks including a strip down and full repaint in stunning Mexico beige / Sepia brown which has been the continued theme throughout the bus, oozing nostalgia from every angle. The metalwork is in good condition and the underside very solid, a testament to a good quality resto and subsequently a well looked after bus.

Subject to a £10,000 mechanical overhaul in 2019 by renowned VW specialists, Type 2 Detectives including recommissioning the buses sought after type 4 engine with many new components, reconditioned steering, uprated Bilstein shock absorbers, replacement ball joints and much more work listed in there comprehensive ‘health check’ report.
