1979 Volkswagen Type2 VW T2 Bay Window Panel Van

….Reluctantly the time has come to sell our van, we just don’t have the time to enjoy as much as we used to, and think it’s best to move on while still in great condition. We’ve owned the van 13 years since 2005, and did a full restoration completed in 2012 with no expense spared, plenty of panels all replaced inc US imported rust free doors. So many receipts I can’t bring myself to add up as it’ll be more than the sale price – but no regrets we’ve had some great trips and holidays in this van. So we’ve spent a fortune on the van over the years inc the resto. We have a list of all the work and receipts, serviced and checked every year regardless of the minimal miles. Beautiful Nepal orange paintwork which we have looked after by covering the van when not in use during summer, and dry stored in a barn over winter. Same 1600 Engine as when we bought it and have only done 20k miles! still feels good & strong, and has got us to Cornwall at least twice a year, and even the outer hebrides without missing a beat. Looked after by the same aircooled specialist throughout our ownership. The interior we’ve kept flexible so just has a full width rock n roll bed in the back and lighting as we didn’t want to cook in it. Insulated, Sound proofed, and trimmed panels all round. Porsche Boxster seats in the front. We have customised the van a bit, but nothing that would make it difficult to put right back to stock. The only bad bits are a few poor quality restoration bits like window scrapers and some of the door seals – easily replaced, but frustrating they didn’t last like original – but they aren’t leaking so I haven’t replaced yet. Also a bit of rust that has broken through on the bottom rear drivers side arch (see pic) – this panel was good and didn’t need replacing – I have a spare few litres of the paint too – shouldn’t be a major job. This van would make a stunning eye catcher for a retro / pop up business or street food vendor. We will continue to use the van, there won’t be a lot of miles going on it, but will renew the MOT and Service at the same time in June. Please note we are in no rush to sell, so sensible offers only. Any questions please ask, but please phone for a chat and hopefully organise coming to take a look. Matt
