Description

A Split Screen Sundial camper conversion from Los Angeles.

Painted in a stunning combination of Blau and Pastelweiss which is much admired.

Originally imported to LA and converted by Sundial.

Imported to UK in 2016 from Brian Richardson of Phoenix, Arizona who had owned it for 10 years.

I have owned it for 8 years and restored it fully in that time.

The interior has been reproduced in the original style with the Sundial rock and roll bed showing the original patent label.

Upholstered in dark blue fabric with Aztec pattern curtains with matching cushions. Mad Matz cab mats.

Fully reconditioned Hehr louvre/ jalousie windows all round with bug mesh screens as also used by Westfalia.

Wolfsburg West rear Safari window.

Original Sundial awning with new side curtains in original style.

Original Blaupunkt 1960s FM radio in working order.

Rock n roll bed with 2 lap-belts, storage underneath and cupboards to side.

Buddy seat for two with storage underneath.

Full lap & diagonal retractable seatbelts (2) in cab.

Engine is a very good 1641cc with twin carburettors.

Stock height original suspension. Engine is a very good 1641 with twin carburettors, Mahle pistons, Grant rings, Engle 110 cam, rebuilt heads with high-rev springs. AS41 dual relief case tapped for full flow and professionally cleaned, crack checked, and align-bored. New main, rod, and cam bearings. Doghouse oil cooler, Bosch 009 distributor, new fuel pump, Bosch Blue coil. Vintage Speed stainless exhaust (2019).

Transmission rebuilt by well known UK specialist John Walklett . . . higher final drive fitted to match the power of the upgraded engine.

Rewired (2019) 12 volt conversion with alternator.

During restoration lower 15cm of body panels all round were replaced, plus the door bottoms, cab floor corners, bottom of front screen surrounds and inner and outer sills.

Chassis is good (photos available).

Restoration was completed five years ago and it still looks very good indeed.
