The UK Sports Cars Showroom
1964 VW Split Screen Camper Van. Factory German Built & UK Supplied Right Hand Drive. Devon Interior. Interior of choice offered.
A very pleasant example. This is a genuine German built bus that was supplied to the UK in 1964 and complete with its factory VIN plate and M Code plate to confirm its authenticity from factory.
Restoration orchestrated by the previous owner which involved a complete strip down of the bus to its bare bones to identify which areas required attention. This soon turned into a rotisserie restoration where the entire shell was stripped of its components and placed on its side on a jig so that the underside could be attended to in detail. All of the doors were removed from the bus at the same time so that they could be attended to individually.
The bus was then primed and painted in early and desirable Volkswagen colours, Sealing Wax Red / Beige Grey.
1500cc recon engine has been inspected and serviced on the bench and runs well. Replacement 12v wiring loom. Brand new brakes all round. Very enjoyable bus to drive and will come with 12 months MOT even though it no longer requires one by law just for additional peace of mind.
The bus currently has a Devon interior installed and chequered Red / White flooring. The interior is in good condition for its age being 50+ years old but the woodwork obviously is not new.
Bespoke interiors on these buses are our specialty. Our usual procedure with a bus like this would be to build and install a bespoke interior specified by us to what we consider to be the best selling specification and then advertise it to the market once complete. On this occasion however, we have decided to leave the interior as it is to allow the new owner to decide whether they prefer the current setup or would like a new bespoke interior built to their exact preference / specification. We have had so many requests for this as when it comes to soft furnishings, layouts etc. it is very much a matter of personal preference so this now allows for you to choose everything from upholstery options to appliance should this be the option for you. All of this can be discussed in great detail so if you are interested in this vehicle, please call us today and we will happily go through all options, pricing etc.
