VW T2 Bay Window Camper Van 1979 RHD




….For Sale: ‘Kermie’ our lovely ’79 VW T2 Bay Window Campervan, in distinctive VW Apple Green (L61A) and VW Pastel White (L90D). Bought in Sept. 2015 and promptly laid up for 8 months for renovation by ourselves, when she was stripped down to bare metal, all original interior, seats and units were dismantled, restored & re-upholstered, for which I have many photos & receipts. She is a RHD (UK) Danbury conversion, and is one of the last iconic T2’s to be built by VW in Germany, as they finished building them there in 1979. She will be 40 years old next year, and as such will be applicable for Road Tax & MOT exemption thereafter. We have toured Europe in her (as featured in VW Camper & Bus magazine) and various places around the UK (Lake District, Scotland & Cornwall, VW meets etc.) and she was our wedding vehicle last summer, and so has given us many fond memories and plenty of good times indeed! She had a full re-spray in Feb 2016 and was re-upholstered in red leatherette as part of our renovation. Solid underneath, with very little welding done (unlike some). Generally in very good condition for her age, inside & out (which is commented on wherever we go!) and has covered only 10,000 miles in the last 10 years, having had only 8 previous owners from new. Some details & features included are: Walk thru Cab 1600 AD twin port engine (re-conditioned) Electronic Ignition (far more reliable than the old Points!) Leisure Battery fitted with 6 way fusebox (for 12v ancillaries i.e. lights, fan etc.) Pop Top Roof (Canvas replaced) Buddy Seat (removable) Sink & Tap (with manual foot pump) Twin Gas Stove with Grill (portable, as we don’t cook inside) 28ltr Upright Electric Coolbox (12v/240v) 4 Bottle Wine Rack (unique!) 4 Seat Belts (2 x Front & Rear) Original Wooden Units and Rock & Roll Folding Bed Vintage Roof Rack (modified to take the Spare Wheel) New Curtains Louvre slatted window fitted on the RH side Tow Bar (not used but left it on as may save the engine in the event of a rear-end knock?) Also comes with 2 x Bunk Bed canvas’s & attachments (not currently fitted as we’ve not had need to use them), a Grey full size ‘Just Kampers’ outdoor/waterproof cover and a Black wrap-around Windscreen cover. 12 months MOT (June 2019). Currently on a Private reg. ‘VIW 636’, which is NOT included in this sale. As well as featuring in a 6 page spread in the Volksworld Camper & Bus magazine (Dec 16), Kermie won ‘Best Interior’ at last years ‘Blackpool Breeze’ VW meet, of which we are rightly very proud of! Reluctantly putting up for sale as we are now on with another VW project. Located at Lytham St. Annes, Lancs. FY8. For those of you not too familiar with these older vehicles, they are unique and unlike a modern car, each comes with their own imperfections & peculiarities i.e. a fuel gauge that works but isn’t reliable, heating that isn’t perfect, no power steering etc. but they’re some of the things that you learn to put up with and is part of the charm & character of owning & driving one! Feel free to ask any questions (initial contact to be made thru ebay), but please note: I will only sell for the right price, no silly offers will be considered. Genuine people only please, no timewasters, thank you.
