Road Tax exempt.It’s one less than 100 miles since completion and is ready to drive away, it hasn’t been to any shows, so would be totally new on this years show circuit and a real head turner. Manufactured on 13/08/1968 (I have VW type approval letter) but 69 model year, the Bus came pretty solid and was intended as a keeper.Repair work carried out to a good standard, small cargo floor section, both cab floors, battery tray, small inner arch, outer sills and front windscreen sections professionally repaired.
