T25 T3 1984 Volkswagen VW Campervan, 5 speed 1.9 MTDI Diesel Holdsworth Villa

….1984 Volkswagen T25 Transporter, new MOT, 119000 miles from new.Original diesel , 5 speed gearbox.I bought this 8 years ago, as a non runner, with the idea to recapture my youth spent in many different Volkswagen T2’s and T25’s, by restoring it and using it for camping trips.It’s been stored in my barn out of the weather most of that time.I removed the old 1.6 diesel engine and replaced it with a 1.9 AHU fly by wire engine from a 1997 Golf TDI.I converted it to run with out all the electronics that go wrong regularly.This is the engine to have in your T25 brick, no more slow up hills, or queues of traffic behind you.This goes very, very well, and returns 40 plus mpg.So it now runs a mechanical injection Bosch VE diesel pump, it runs great , and is powerful and economical.It’s had a big intercooler fitted and a large bore stainless steel exhaust box, free flow KN type filter.I estimate it has around 100bhp, it’s had a new cambelt, new clutch, new battery,new brakes all-round, new ball joints, the tyres are like new Michelin van tyres. It has had lowering springs fitted, from memory -70 mm It looks like the bus was treated to some form of rust treatment from new, like Ziebart.This is why it’s in such rust free condition. the only repair it’s had, is to the O/S seat belt mount.The only rust hole is where I pushed my finger through on the O/S door step.I think this is going to be the least rusty,original non restored bus you will find.It does have a bit of surface rust and dents, but its not covered up and you can see what you’re getting. It’s fitted out with a Holdsworth Villa Conversion it all works as it should, there’s a big water tank under the seat,2 burner cooker with a grill, sink with electric pump.It has two non leaking,opening or removable glass sunroofs, that make the inside very light and airy.It’s got all the original service books and handbooks, and a fair amount of receipts and paperwork.Twin swivel front seats. and curtains that have been washed, and not refitted.My reason for selling, now it’s done, my wife doesn’t like the non powered steering !!!So now I’ve bought a modern campervan, and the Volkswagen T25 is for sale !!!I can take photos of anything you need to see, or come and have a look with your mechanic. Any questions message me. Bank transfer or cash on collection please, from BN27 4HG
