VW Late Bay Window Camper 1978 2000cc RHD MOT Nov   Price: 18500
1978 VW Bay window camper van 2000cc engine. MOT until November 2nd 2018 passed with no advisories. The van is finished in light grey with a pastel white roof in original paint with some patina to the front above the windscreen which adds a lot of character. Extensive restoration work has been carried out.

Respray in light grey of lower body.
Reconditioned engine.
Electric fuel pump conversion.
New Starter motor.
New Clutch.
New fuel tank filler neck rubbers.
New fuel tank filler cap.
New engine mounts.
Complete brake overhaul front and back.

New rear shock absorbers.
New Nearside sill and step.
Reconditioned front bumper.
New rear bumper.
Complete set of new door seals.
New door front door handles.
New wing mirrors.
Underseal in black waxoyl
Complete set of new window rubbers.
New pop top seal.
New pop top toggles.
Reconditioned wheels painted in silver.
All new tyres excluding spare wheel. (this comes with the van but needs a new tyre)
New sliding bushes and rollers.
Resprayed dash top.
New front door cards with speakers. (original radio currently fitted)
New rear door cards and trims.
New pedal rubbers.

New doorstep rubbers.
New pop top roof lining.
New pop top front struts.
New interior light.
New interior cupboards and table in original style.
New cushions.

New wiper blades.

Bad bits:
There are some signs of ageing as you would expect from a 40 year old vehicle.
There is a slight tear on the drivers seat.
The original fridge is plumbed in but has not been tested and would need a safety check before use.
The hammock style bunk beds do work but I have not done any work to them and have signs of wear.
The canvas for the pop top is original and does have some small holes although I have never had any issues leaking.
There is currently no heating system. It just needs the pipe work although after market propane heating systems are much more efficient than the original systems fitted to these vans.

This is a very good example of a classic van and has been finished to a high standard. More photo's are available on request. Viewing is highly recommended. The Van is advertised elsewhere.
