Volkswagen T2 Bay camper van , 1973 never welded Price: 13995
1973 volkswagen T2 camper van
Originaly Westfalia conversion but now simplified
but using original fabric for the coverings of the rock n roll bed and cushions
The interior is just ready for that personal touch.
This van was imported from a dry American state years a few years ago
And has undergone a very light restoration, i.e
New rubbers, interior panels, and consumables
The van has all its original panels, and is in need of none.
This is the only way to buy these , especially considering the value.
So many people get caught out by buying a van thatís shiny , or with a flash interior, this is no way to buy one of these
You can change the colour, you can change your interior,
but you are stuck with your body,
These vans now need no MOT, so its doubly important to buy wisely .
There are many dollied up vans out there which can also be un roadworthy and dangerous
It costs a considerable amount of money to restore these vans metalwork properly,
and some will say you will never stop the rust, just prolong it.
This van was factory under sealed from new and where thatís coming off its shiny orange paint underneath ,
The front beam is perfect as are the ball joints brakes and lines.
The steering doesnít have the so call usual play its tight and direct.
The engine is the flat t4 engine 1800cc with twin carbs which have all been rebuilt and simplified.
The engine starts and runs fantastically
Its had the oil replaced every year. along with the fanbelt
The Gearbox is precise and the gear lever selects gears without play in the stick.
All four premium Hankook tyres are as new .
Inside the heating works, it has the original front seats been recovered but not by us.
The passenger seat is on a swivel base.
In the back is a new period style rock and roll bed covered in the original westi fabric the floor is ply lined and covered in vinyl and sides are original spec ply
The roof is original Westi as fitted to the bus originally with a tan canvas which is new. It also has the original childís bunk upfront.
Side windows are original opening louvered windows and upfront it has the original opening quarter lights.
Overall this bus is a must look at it looks worse in the pictures than it does in real life,
The pictures just donít do it justice , the black you see in the close up pictures Isnít rust itís a waxoil and underneath its not rust just that the underseal is a bit flaky in places, I didnít want to tart anything up as it much better to see it in its original condition.
The VW badge has been unclipped for safe keeping but will come with the van.
If you in the market for a van thatís super solid ( Original solid ) and want to make your own , this the van for you , it also with the original cabinets can be built as original westi spec.
I have 100+ pictures, if you would like me to send them to you, PM me your tel no and ill whats app them to you.
Thanks for looking
