Desirable Type 2 model
Mileage believed genuine
In long term current ownership
Subject to a restoration between 2008 and 2009 at a cost in excess of £16k (bills on file)
Presented in Neptune blue, this VW looks good and it benefits from a number of sensible upgrades including 5 spoke alloy wheels, rev counter, and moon roof. The interior has been re-trimmed in black with a blue / check pattern and it looks great.

Originally registered as a VW van, it has been professionally converted into a camper van at some stage which added side windows and the aforementioned moon roof, plus interior upgrades including a day bed.

Additional features to make the VW more suited to every day motoring include servo brakes, quick shift gear change and slightly lowered suspension.

Documentation with the VW is extensive. Lots of bills on file from the 1990s through to the present date - which indicate that this camper has been cherished and well maintained over the last 25 years - and there is a separate file for the restoration mentioned above.

There are also MOT certificates on file going back to 2000 which back up the present mileage of 72k.

The 1600 engine appears to be running well - the vendor drove the VW to our premises from his home some 30 miles away. He confirmed that he has travelled extensively throughout the UK during his ownership.

One very useful extra is the Fireboy fire suppression system which activates should the worst happen in the engine compartment.

Bodywork is starting to show its age particularly around the rear arches and outer sills, although there is a pleasant patina to the VW overall.

The VW also comes with a tow bar plus a box of additional bits and bobs including a tin of paint for touch ups.

Keys plus v5c and HPi clear.

Offered with an attractive reserve, this VW represents a fantastic opportunity to purchase a usable classic at a sensible price.

£8, 000 - £10, 000

Buyer's premium: 15. 00%
