Chassis and underside fully undersealed and cavity waxed. No rust issues on the chassis at all. Super clean and solid.
The body is tidy, no rust issues.
The engine has been replaced before we purchased it 6 years ago, and we have used the camper every year since, for family holidays, in France and Spain. On average we have put 4000 miles per year on it. The engine pulls beautifully. Starts straight up perfect every time. Runs like a clock.
This vehicle has been serviced in house, by us since we took ownership of it.
Reason for sale is that we are upgrading to a much bigger setup.
Selling the bus with used Outwell Mountain Awning, which is a drive away tunnel type awning and fixes to the van via a kader strip.
Also tow-bar storage box - which is easily removable. Can carry chair/ tables and other bulky items.
This camper has had a no expense spared restoration, completed to a very high standard, 5 years ago.
100% no rust. All panels and chassis, in top condition. Full cavity wax treated, and undersealed.
It's a LHD Westfalia. The bus was built in 1976 and shipped to the Netherlands.
In 2006 a reconditioned engine was fitted and since then it has only done 56K miles.
The engine runs and drives beautifully. The gearshift is excellent, and there is no whine from the gearbox.
In 2012 it was restored fully by us (VW Engineering Ltd). The colour scheme is in an authentic VW colour called Reed Green, and the bumpers and poptop are in Seagull green.
Since 2012 there has been: new pop-top canvas, driver and passenger seats (out of a Saab) very comfortable, many new mechanical parts, alternator, power steering conversion, immobiliser & alarm, rear parking sensors, leisure battery with interior lights, CD/Radio with blue tooth and USB. There is a full width rock and roll bed and a double bed in the roof, so sleeps four.
The underside of the vehicle is rock solid and is very well preserved.
Its being sold with a a bike rack that fits onto the tow bar, and an awning.
It's a really good honest bus, and drives beautifully.
Vehicles like this are becoming harder and harder to find.
