1969 VW Campervan (Early Bay) 1.6 Petrol Engine   Price: 10000
1969 VW Campervan (Early Bay Style) in Matt Black with some great features.

Purchased the vehicle in 2014 and had the engine replaced (with a reconditioned 1.6l Petrol Engineer) and the interior renovated to include storage cupboards, toilet and a rock n roll double bed. It also has a perspex roof (great for seeing the stars!) and a see through engine cover.

The guys did a great job with the refurb and we've enjoyed a number of festivals and camping trips over the years including the Isle of White and Glastonbury.

Recently put the vehicle through it's MOT following some fresh welding work on the chassis. Also had the carb cleaned out and some general tinkering under the bonnet.

As a driver - it's a challenge as you might expect! Requires an experienced driver and someone who doesn't expect super comfort and an easy ride.

Mechanically sound but the general consensus is that a new carburetor and choke wouldn't go amiss along with some work on the electrics (CV Player not operating at the moment - very frustrating!) The previous owner had sparkly lights and all sorts throughout the vehicle and given the chance I'd have the wiring sorted out. As it is ... still needs a little work but in terms of driving - not an issue!

The mileage is most likely 200,000+ but the vehicle has had loads of work done and the current engineer has done less than 10,000 miles in the vehicle.

I have a variety of spare parts and manuals to go with the vehicle. Lots of service history kicking around but in general terms it's a long term investment and a genuinely eye catching VW.

I will also provide a JustKampers Cover with the Van - it's a bit battered but keeps the elements away (useful this winter!)

As I've recently moved house, I don't have anywhere to store the van and rather than let it sit unused, I've decided to let "Black Betty" go to a new home where she can continue her adventures. She can be driven away and used immediately - but someone who knows a little about campervans or mechanical work could really make a massive difference to the van.

FEEL FREE TO DROP ME A MESSAGE WITH ANY QUESTIONS. CAN BE VIEWED ON A WEEKEND OR LATE EVENING. COLLECTION ONLY - UNLESS YOU CAN ARRANGE FOR DELIVERY.
