VW Bay Window Camper Van 1976 – Tax and MOT Exempt – Twin slider with new engine




….For sale our beloved 1976 VW Bay Window Camper van ‘Road-Runner’ painted in a beautiful combination of white on sky blue and styled in a classic vintage look. £19,500 (With a £500 deposit to be paid to secure van) Bought in 2010 as a project van we took her off the road to complete a bare-metal restoration and interior strip-out with a newly designed interior hand-crafted and all new upholstery and soft furnishings added to give her a completely new look. Great care was taken at this stage to strip back and future proof the chassis. The whole underneath was taken back to bare metal and then treated with Por-15 to protect it and has meant that the all-important chassis is in great condition. She is a Right Hand Drive and originally started out life as a VW microbus with 12 seats making it the 70s equivalent of today’s people carriers. Registered in 1976, she is now 42 years old and is exempt from both Road tax and MOT, meaning no annual running costs other than the petrol to get you from A to B. She is also a rare twin-slider, meaning you can get good access at home or abroad. We have toured both North and South Wales in her over the years with trips further afield to Somerset, Bristol and surrounding areas too with many happy memories. The beautiful vintage styling has also meant she has had a good life as a wedding vehicle for hire too, being used at numerous weddings across South Wales, taking in venues such as Castle Coch, St Fagans and Caerphilly Castle as well as our own wedding at St Donats Castle. All proceeds from these hires have all been put straight back into the van to maintain and add to the build and as a result has benefitted from a complete brakes overhaul (June last year), a new engine regular paint-work and much more over the years. Details & features included are: Brand new 1600 engine from the VW Engine Company designed to run modern unleaded fuels – costing over £2500 alone and recently re-tuned. Brand new fuel lines and new petrol tank added Stainless steel exhaust pipe Electronic Ignition supplied (far more reliable than the old Points!) Portable camping electrics unit for on-site power MP3 stereo and radio Original Devon Pop Top Roof fitted and refurbished Buddy Seat (removable) 4 Seat Belts (2 x Front & 2 Rear) Rock and Roll bed fitted with extra comfort foam (More comfortable than my own bed) Rear and side jail bars – a great looking feature Stainless steel hub caps (so no rust) and newly powder coated wheels – A recent £500 investment New blue check gingham Curtains, bunting and Cath Kidston inspired soft furnishings Vintage style picnic basket also supplied Unique Birch ply roof and rear living space lining Sound proofing in doors, over engine bay and sliding doors. Additional top engine hatch, making it easier to work on. Retains original road height, a rarity these days with so many getting lowered Matching removable blue table and base, great for meal times in the van. New – Boxed steering wheel ready to be installed. Also comes with a Grey full size ‘Just Kampers’ outdoor/waterproof cover, although largely un-used due to being garaged over its lifetime, and a box of spares containing dizzy caps, lightbulbs etc. MOT and TAX Exempt Recent independent valuation places the value on the van at £22,000 to replace and has been priced accordingly; we have spent £1000’s on this van over the years but have enjoyed every minute. This investment means she is solid, ready to go and enjoy, a great family bus or great wedding vehicle. The choice is yours.
