  1. 1979 VW T2 Late Bay Danbury Twin Slider camper

    Production date: June 1979 - Next year it will be an historic vehicle and as such tax and MOT free!

    Due to repeated time wasters Bumble is back up for sale.

    So, after much deliberation we have decided to sell our much loved VW camper....
    The body work is all original with only a slight skim of filler over the welds after panel replacement. It has been kept in a garage and only really used during the summer months in good conditions. It has been wax-oiled on the underside and kept as is for the rest of the bodywork.

    It has a 2.0 type 4 engine. It starts great every time and has enough power to deal with modern day traffic. It has new fuel lines, pump and filters fitted.

    It comes with the following:

    Last MOT expired in July which it passed first time, will add a fresh MOT for the buyer on sale.

    - 3/4 Rock n roll bed
    - 2 x 3 point seat belts in front
    - Propex gas heater under rock and roll bed with thermostat
    - Leisure battery 110AH, 140amp voltage sensitive relay, fuse board and battery charger fitted
    - High ampage four way power splitter under rock and roll bed ready for installation of plugs or other accessories.
    - Silver backed JustKampers blackout blinds
    - Custom built interior which includes an area for a camping stove, gas lines have been plumbed in with cut off valves which split the gas between the propex and the cooker, only one bottle is needed to run both.
    - Dynamat fitted over the engine compartment, behind the rock n roll bed, the complete floor area and all door panels
    - CD player with USB i-pod connectivity and speakers up front
    - Original seats in the cab – driver’s seat a bit tired with a tear in the cover
    - Original panels in the cab
    - Original front headlining in good condition
    - Rear headlining has been replaced with high quality foam liner with an LED strip light installed on a rocker switch. this provides more than enough light to fill the entire bus and as its led its current draw is minimal

    - New front window
    - New door and window seals throughout
    - Sliding window fitted in the rear by the bed

    - High quality, sparkly, heavy duty commercial grade laminate flooring fitted. Also anti slip
    - Dash has been repainted

    - The underside is rot free and under-sealed
    - New jacking points
    - various panels have been replaced with NOS, generally only the bottom 6 inches

    I am open to sensible part ex offers. I have been to enough shows to see those £8-12k ones you see where they show a van incomplete or with enough rust to scare you
    I bought this as a rolling chassis 9 years ago and have spent thousands on restoring it. Financal reasons force sale.
    Its very rare to find a twin slider in such good condition these days and even more rare to find one without the roof being hacked and a poptop fitted. This is as original as it gets.
    More photos can be provided, questions happily answered, genuine buyers please....
