  1. Now Sold.....................................



    Hi,

    Over the last few months I have been having my Aussie bay sorted to tip top condition.Basically new rear arches where me and the Misses took it in turns to hit gate posts.Did it symetrically though so both had to be done.Whilst we started this I thought we might as well freshen the whole body.Sanded right back to find any other problem areas.Fresh metal where required.As the engine and interior have been done over the past few years.During this time we bought a Jurgens Autovilla '79 Bay,18 months ago.We were going to keep both but have decided over the past two weeks that the Aussie has to go.Here's the detail.

    Imported by G'day Kombi's in 2006.We are the first registered UK owners from that time.

    Aussie only colour.Martini Olive green.Different.

    Seats and panels covered in a deep red vinyl.Trying to get the pimento pepper/olive combination

    Underneath is fantastic.As mentioned has been waxoiled from when it first hit the UK's roads in Aug 2006.
    Dual circuit brakes,front discs.
    Very good tyres on Porsche teledials with locking wheel nuts. Moderately (4 inches) lowered for a comfy non rolling drive.Can put onto original steelies.

    OR cheaper option of standard type 4 2l engine with refurbed heads and refurbed standard solex carbs.


    Oil temp' sender and gauge.
    Serviced twice a year

    Rear arches and rear valance replaced with fresh metal.Step replaced when first bought.I have left the step runners off so the step can be seen/inspected.Will replace once sold

    Taxed and tested.

    I have probably missed something from the description.

    Any questions welcome.

    Leics.

  2. Okay.

    I am just waiting for the van to come back from the front seats being re upholstered.They weren't as good as we thought they should be.I will take a few more pics of the finished interior once we have it back.Having looked at the prices of G day Kombi's Aussie vans and a couple of others I am open to sensible offers.This van has a complete new engine and interior.All problems that arose from buying a 'rot free' Aussie van have been addressed.There is always rust to be found.Everything that was found to be wrong has been sorted.So whoever buys will get a very well looked after and loved van.

    Thanks for looking. :)
     
  3. Van should be back from interior chap by the end of this week.Will post all latest photo's then.Body,underneath and inside.Will have full tax and MOT when sold.
     
  4. Straight through MOT.Just a few bulbs needed replacing.
     
  5. New photo's added.
    Description updated as I forgot things like the table etc.

    thats really nice buddy :thumbsup:
     
  9. Cheers thanks.It is nice and v tidy.A good functional camper.Thank you again.
     
  10. Added a few more photo's.Roofline and close ups to show how straight this van is.Including interior with the stowaway table put up.Have been toying with the idea of dropping the brand new engine out and replacing with a 2 litre type 4 with new heads and full service to get the price down.
     
  11. Added a few new details such as re furbished door locks all around.1 key fits all exterior doors.

    Brand new ignition barrel.

    Choice of engines choice of price.

    Brand new engine with Dellorto's £16500.
    Standard 2l type 4.Refurbed solex with refurbed heads £13500.
     
  12. Good move on the option of the Engine. I reckon at that price you will get some interest. Really nice van.
     
  13. Cheers.

    Should do it is a really nice van and over the years we have sorted all the bits and bobs that come up.Enjoyed driving it these past few weeks ;D

    Probably pop the 2056cc and Dell's into the Jurgens 8)
     
  14. Very - very nice!
     
  15.  
  16. Interior is nice too - who did the work?
     
  17. Custom Classic and Retro did the wooden furniture and roof lining.

    My Mrs did the door cards,seats,curtains and cow hide.She also made the pop top canvas.I don't think she thought her footwear fashion design skills would be put to VW use 8)
