  1. Up for grabs is my 1973 tax exempt bay window tin top white over blue campervan.

    For those of you that are into the VW scene this van has just been built so hasn’t yet made an appearance at any shows or meets, therefore it will be making its debut with you as the owner :) which is now a rare thing to see.

    Ok so a little about the bus. It is very solid and straight and has been undersealed to protect against the elements. There is some light surface rust around some of the windows and a patch under the front head light, but i have left that and treated with wax oil as i like the look it has which, giving it lots of character. Depending on your plans for the bus there is nothing major that needs doing as this van is rot free and very solid throughout.

    The roof of this van is immaculate and very straight, one of the best iv seen thats never been touched or filled ect

    The running gear for the van has been converted to wide 5 split screen stud pattern and is all brand spanking new as follows:

    new 4.5 inch fully adjustable narrowed beam from lime bug (late split) front end set up

    3.5 inch dropped spindles

    new narrowed track rods

    short slam shocks all round

    5mm spacers on front which can be used or taken off depending how you like the ride

    17'’ radar wheels ET 40 with brand new tyres fitted 185/35/17

    the rear of the van has been lowered 2 splines

    rear set up has had wide 5 conversion using brand new hubs, break shoes, and all brand new break internals from type 2 detectives

    brand new front flexi brake hoses

    1600 twinport aircooled engine

    klaxon horn fitted

    3 bow roof rack (rear)

    2 bow roof rack (front)

    GENUINE VW of America over riders front and rear, fully restored and painted with all rubbers and fittings

    chrome door handles and mirrors 1 or 2 cab handles could do with changing as there a bit worn

    brand new fuel sender

    pioneer cd player with aux with remote control, 6x9 speakers in the rear and i think 6x4 in the front if i remember rightly

    cab lights front and cargo lights rear all working off one switch on the dash

    new cab floor carpets and rubber mats underneath and walk through carpets

    full width rock and roll bed brand new and never slept in as of yet and comes with brand new upholstered vinyl cushions

    front cab seats are original with original material however the drivers seat is ripped but i like it like that so i never changed it

    99% of brand new door cards covered in cool new coffee sacks we ordered in to do the interior. the back 2 cards are missing but only cheap and it doesn’t stop you enjoying and using this bus

    the roof is fully insulated and has been ply lined and then has a bamboo roof fitted as we were kitting it out as a surf van this can be taken down if needed no problem and the headliner would be intact

    the cab headliner is still original VW in white and is excellent clean condition with no rips or damage

    the cargo floor has been insulated and then wooden yellow pine t&g fitted on top and stained with varnish

    there is a home made unit made out of the same material also fitted which can be left in or taken out and is yet to be painted the choice is yours

    the van comes with a full 12 month mot

    this van is ready to roll for the summer camping and festivals ect straight away with no work needed unless you wanted to paint the van, bt what a cool van this is as it sits at the moment. there has been lots of money and lots of time spent on this van with all the new running gear ect and has wanted for nothing. the engine bay is solid as a rock with no repairs needed

    all rubbers on the van are in good condition too and all glass is in excellent shape

    as said previously this van is in excellent shape with lots of nice new parts fitted and has been done to a high standard .

    i think who ever owns this awesome bus will be very pleased with it and the work its had done and it is a van that can be enjoyed right away no restoration needed .

    being in the VW scene myself i am constantly studying the market and i feel this van is priced fair and priced to sell with the new running gear/parts and the overall condition of the van

    the asking price is £13,000 ONO i am open to SENSIBLE offers but unfortunately NO part ex as i need the cash for another project.

    the bus is located in manchester M27 and is available for purchase and viewing straight away. The bus is kept in dry storage.

    i am sure i have forgot a few things on the list so will add to them as i think on

    please feel free to ring me (lee) on 07718140863 any time with any questions you may have

    cash on collection and a deposit of £300 is needed to secure the van if you wish to buy.

    full uk licence and valid insurance must be present before any test rides .

    please no tyre kickers or time wasters ,

    first to see will buy for sure and i will be sorry to see the bus go

    i will try and upload more photos of the van and the insides tomorrow evening if the weather is ok
