1973 VW T2 Bay Window Camper Van. Westfalia Pop Top Roof. Restoration work completed Summer 2024. Brand new high spec bespoke Interior

A wonderful Bay Window bus that left the factory on 13th February 1973. This is a factory German built and UK supplied Right Hand Drive bus complete with its VW birth certificate. This is an invaluable document to support its exact provenance from new. This also confirms that the bus was a genuine Westfalia conversion from new.

The bus comprises of the most desirable specification being RHD, having the world renowned Westfalia pop top roof vastly increasing headroom and with side opening vents to keep it cool on hot days and finally being a walkthrough model allowing you to walk from the front to the rear of the bus effortlessly without the need to exit the vehicle.

The bus has been owned locally to us by local VW enthusiasts for the past 13 years, used for adventures and has plenty of paperwork for servicing and mechanical work carried out throughout this time as well as old MOTs dating back even further.

Since our acquisition this year we have carried out restoration work on the vehicle which involved stripping it back wherever required. As the bus has been well cared for, the repairs required were minimal and the main bulk of the work involved was stripping and painting the lower half of the bus in the early and traditional VW colour of Sea Blue. The engine, fuel tank and all associated components were all removed in order to carry out a thorough job including painting of the entire engine bay, inside the rear shell and the cab area. This exposed all of the unseen floor sections to assure all was in good order in this department.

Gearbox rebuilt in 2015 and the reconditioned engine has been freshly serviced with all new seals 2024. Mechanics checked over and the bus is provided with 12 months MOT even though no longer required by law for added peace of mind.

After the main restoration work had been completed, it was then time for us to build and install one of our high-end bespoke interiors. We pride ourselves on producing some of the best VW Camper Interiors available. Each one is built bespoke by a team of specialists and as such we only have limited capacity to do a handful per year, valuing quality over quantity.

All the products, appliances and materials are of the highest standard and have been tried and tested, to ensure the best possible user experience. We have tweaked our design several times over the years and believe this interior to now be the ultimate and most effective use of space on a walkthrough model classic VW. Every square inch is of great importance so why waste any!?
