  1. Iv allways wanted a campervan but knew they were exspensive ! My dad became ill shortly after loosing my mum he allso got cancer and when he was in the hospice 1 day I went to see him as I allways had and he said here ... It was a bit of paper with an address on it ? He said Iv bought u that Vw u allways wanted !! Make sure u restore it and enjoy it with the family for years to come !!

    I trailered it home cuz the hospice showing my dad 2 days later he lost his battle to cancer and the whole family had this Vw to keep us busy !!
    it was easy to choose a name for the bus ......

Then I set about getting it to metal and it was clear it was a complete wreck and had been bodge but this had to be fixed as my dad bought this for me , turned out it was a complete rebuild allso changed it over from auto to manual as the auto was shot to !! Had a rear roof every door ect just about everything!!
