VW Campervan T2 Bay (Danbury or Viking?)1974 3/4/5 berth. Original & unmolested.




….Here we have our ‘original’ blue and white-roofed, original RHD bay window Viking/Danbury? conversion with brown and orange 1970’s interior. He has a full pop-top that is pinkish, with plastic windows and curtain rails (with more orange curtains) and with a white roof.Internally there is an original wooden fitted custom unit which hides and houses a two burner gas stove and grill, a sink (pump and water tank stored under the floor) and various wooden storage places and cupboards – one has the gas bottle in. Also has the original table and fittings. Modern stereo / CD / aux input player with 2 under dash mounted Vibe speakers and 2 Vibe speakers in the rear. There is also a child’s hammock that fits over the cab seats. The floor is laid to carpet and the roof lining is the original and clean, as are the sun visors.We have a service and MOT history for the period we have had him and some previous history too (hence his name) and mechanically there has been no problems following brake, wheel, tyre replacement/refurbishment and fuel and brake line system replacement by Cavan at Revesby Garage (who did some other initial works for us too) after we purchased him a few years ago. There is well over 100k miles on the clock and the engine is believed to be the original (?) and in fine fettle.As you can imagine with a ‘bus of this age, there are still some (small) outstanding issues that need addressing including some minor areas of rust which will need attention. But he has always ticked over and delivered 55-60 cruising speeds easily and well and the current MOT runs to August 2018.We have undertaken some restoration as required and the underside was completely sorted and sealed before summer 2016 by reputable repairers and there are invoices to back this up. The body work and interior are original and have been sympathetically looked after and cleaned but not ‘restored’ this is truly an ‘original’ looking T2, its why we bought him.Also included in the sale are some spares and a useful Haynes maintenance manual.- photos and receipts for all works can be seen. Sleeps 5; 2 in original wooden fold down bed – 2 in hammocks above and a child hammock across the front seats with dividing curtains. Pop up roof, seat belts for 5 people (3 front, 2 back fwd facing). Leisure battery, fridge, cooker, sink, storage and LED interior light (v bright) Best of all – drives beautifully and is lots of fun for all occupants. Longer description:Conversion with original interior. New parts as required and regularly serviced and both prior and subsequent to long excursions – such as Lake District, Cornwall/Devon etc. and various festivals.Repairs and undersealing to floorpan just over a year ago and engine runs really well. Driven regularly, with electrics checked and improved with leisure battery and charging points.Front roof rack included as shown in images.Hopefully the photos show most things but if you have any questions or want to arrange a viewing then please contact us.The mechanics and structure are all sound. There are a few areas of the bodywork that the new owner will perhaps want to address, or maybe not (we didn’t):The pop-top roof is watertight and looks A OK and definitely has a 1970’S vintage/vibe.As with any vehicle that’s 43 years old there will always be something to fiddle with and maintain but overall, it’s a sound, solid ‘van that’s never let us down and is a lot of fun and makes everyone smile – and is not ‘overly standardised/modernised/renovated – not that there is anything wrong with that – we appreciate the slammed T2 scoobydooers, but like our original better. Prefer cash on collection ASAP, otherwise we can store and will accept bank transfer ahead of collection, either way is fine. Advertised elsewhere so may end before the listing is scheduled too – there’s not many ‘originals’ left…
