FOR SALE 1978 VW T2 Camper - all original panels - Excellent

  1. 1978 Late Bay import from California in 2017. This is probably the best bus I've seen or owned for the condition of the bodywork.

    Only one tiny bit of welding to the battery tray - the rest is all original panels with perfect shut lines and factory panel gaps. Yes it has a gently worn look but you can see that there is not rot anywhere - underneath is perfect with jacking points etc all still covered with the original paint. All door bottoms / sills / jacking points are like new and all cavities have been rust treated - as has the underside.

    Genuine new bumpers front and rear painted Dakota magnolia to match wheels and top ... then deluxe inserts added

    Mechanically the whole breaking system has been gone through together with the engine - the 1600 TP engine having a refurbished genuine solex carb with the best 123 electronic ignition ... new leads, plugs, factory air filter etc etc and it runs great.

    Interior has a new headlining together with all new TMI basket weave seats / panels ... the Rusty Lee bed has been covered in the matching TMI vinyl.

    New door seals / window seals / tailgate / engine lid.

    New tank and all fuel lines

    Custom units including one behind the passenger seat with period correct cooker.

    The cab floors and rear area all have the correct rubber coverings and the static belts have been changed to inertia reel. The dash top which usually suffers has been replaced with a perfect used example.

    5 x new correct load rated tyres on freshly painted / shot blasted steel wheels.

    As mentioned there is nothing hidden on the bus and of the three I've owned this one is the straightest - all exposed paintwork wear has been treated with Gibbs ... which if you wanted to get the bus nice and shiny can be painted over without issue.

    The main thing is ... no filler and original fit panels - and no welding required.

    MOT till March 2019 but will be MOT and tax exempt from 01/01/19 I've added plenty of pictures but really ... go and see some others then come and see this one !

    £12500.00 ono priced to sell

    Cheers Simon
