I’m reluctantly selling “Bilbo”, our 1978 Bay. He’s a leftie and was imported from Holland in 1981/ 2, hence the X plate. I’ve got copies of all the logbooks right back to then.

I’ve owned him for c12 years now and he’d had a full refurb before I bought him. We’ve looked after him very well and all servicing is done by our local VW classic expert. I had a new (recon) 1600 air-cooled engine a year after we bought him and we’ve done less than 10k miles in that time, using him mainly for festivals.

The body work is mostly sound and the chassis is excellent, having been wax oiled. Original wheels and hubcaps.

He has a full width bed which is extremely comfortable for 2
2 hammocks for the kids
Leather bench seat for 3 in the cab
Gas operated fridge
Sink and tap
2 hob cooker
Under bed storage
Above bed storage
2 sunroofs in the pop top
Spare wheel and cover

He comes with the following accessories:
Blow up drive away awning (with pump!) worth £500. 1 adult can put it up in 15 minutes
Retro roof rack
Windscreen night cover
Levelling chocks
Festival flag pole
Wind break
