VW T25/T3 Westfalia Multivan 1990 1.6TD rare poptop, furniture, diesel heater




….Up for sale is our VW T25 Multivan, 1990 G reg 1.6 turbo diesel 5 speed, 238140 kms (approx 149000 miles). Originally a German van and fitted with factory fitted poptop and double bed. Also fitted are an overhead locker and rear storage cupboard/wardrobe with pop up table, and desirable Eberspacher diesel night heater with thermostat which heats up very well. Very regrettable sale due to ever increasing self employment workload. We’ve had a number of trips in the van and it’s served us well, recently a 650mile round trip without issues and averaging 35mpg fully laden. The condition is very good throughout but it will need some bodywork attending to, mechanically great and would take you anywhere I’m sure. Loads of paperwork and receipts including a folder from Germany with service records. I’ve listed below the main points of the van – Engine/gearbox 1.6 turbo diesel, JR engine code fitted in the past which has the hydraulic head fitted. Recent work includes new cambelt and tensioner, pump timing reset, new waterpump and thermostat with system flush and re-fill with correct pink coolant, new alternator belt, fuel, oil and air filter replaced (mobil 10w40 oil used), replacement injection pipes. Runs and pulls well with slight smoke on startup which soon clears. Gearbox is the 5 speed dogleg box which shifts great with no clunks/bangs/whines, recent oil change with 80/90 GL4 gear oil. Good clutch with no issues. Fuel tank seems to have been replaced in Germany, can be brimmed with no leaks. Wheels/tyres Original 14”steel wheels fitted with 4 new (1000 miles only) Dunlop 185R14C commercial rated tyres, balanced with new valves. Excellent original VW chrome trims fitted. Suspension/brakes None power steering, original suspension works as it should, good brakes with recent new rear wheel cylinders and a few flexi hoses, vans pulls up straight with no judder. Interior Excellent (recently cleaned) interior apart from missing side trim in rear on drivers side and the odd bit of wear here and there. Captains seats up front (no swivels), rock and roll bed in rear which seats 3 with belts and headrests, buddy seat also with belt (genuine 6 seater). Original wardrobe and lockers fitted, original pop off curtains present with no rips/tears and all press studs intact (inc. on van as well). 240v hookup installed (socket under van – no bodywork holes) with RCD protection and 3 double sockets, 3 x 12volt sockets, 2 x USB charging point, leisure battery voltage gauge installed (battery new in last 2 years). Removable grey carpet fitted with original rubber matting underneath in good order, removable camping unit included (no stove or sink). Bluetooth/USB stereo fitted running through 4 speakers. All switches, dials and lights work, speedo has a crack on the front but doesn’t cause any issues, dash fan works (with a small squeak). Excellent factory fitted poptop, canvas looks to have been replaced with a Just Kampers one at some point, mesh windows raggy. Bodywork/chassis Excellent chassis which never appears to have been welded, original sills and suspension arms again in great condition. Really needs underseal applying but you can see it exactly as it is without worrying rust has been covered. The bodywork is finished in pastel white with some rusty areas mainly at the rear, both rear arches and ¼ panels need attention as do the cab steps. Various bits of rust here and there which need sorting, nothing is an MOT failure though. Generally the seams are ok and the van looks very good. Genuine Witter towbar and single electrics fitted this year to tow a small trailer which never happened. Passenger door lock is different to the rest, sliding door doesn’t lock from the outside and you have to reach around from the passenger door.. New window seals fitted on both front doors. That pretty much sums things up, the price reflects the bit of work that needs doing but then this isn’t a £10-£12k van but could well be with a bit of effort. There are probably things that I’ve missed and I’ve tried to be open an honest about everything, there’s nothing to hide here. The van really needs to be viewed to satisfy yourself on it’s condition. Currently MOT’d until 18th Oct but I’ve no problem putting 12 months on it for the right offer. I’ve also got a full winter cover, thermal windscreen cover and Fiamma triple bike rack which could be worked into a deal for the right price. Please don’t waste my time or yours with stupidly low offers, I don’t need to sell in a hurry or need the cash straight away, when the right offer comes it will go. Sold as seen, no warranty implied or given, satisfy yourself on the vehicle condition before committing to buy. If you would like any further information or would like a viewing please send a message or text me on 07939 845541. Please don’t ring as I often can’t answer, just text and I’ll call you back if you want to talk.
