1965 VW Split Screen Camper Van – Factory Right Hand Drive & German Built – Stunning Restoration.
An absolutely stunning vehicle in all departments and one we are very proud to offer for sale. This bus has undergone a restoration that involved the vehicle being stripped down to bare metal. All required panels were replaced inside and out to ensure the metalwork was in superb order before the vehicle was primed and painted in an iconic and popular colour scheme; Black over Porsche Guards Red.
The metalwork on this bus is all in superb order far superior now than it would have been when it left the Hannover factory in 1965. The underside of the bus has been protected with Waxoyl to ensure that the metalwork has protection from rust development.
Ultimate mechanical specification includes a reconditioned 1776cc Engine running on Twin 34pct Carburettors. This is in our opinion the best engine setup you can run on a Split Screen providing plenty of power without venturing away too much from original style German engineering.
Independent Rear Suspension installed allowing for superior ride quality. Folksy Height Adjuster. Front Disc Brake conversion with brake servo upgrade allowing for superb braking performance. Creative Engineering Steering Rack conversion. CSP Quick Shift gear linkage. Dual Speed Wiper Motor, 5 Spoke Polished Chrome Radar Alloys. This bus has everything on the wish list!
Absolutely stunning interior featuring year correct headliner in perforated off white vinyl, all seats and panel card upholstery finished in Biscuit vinyl. Twin opposite facing seating arrangement in rear with bespoke table. Ipod jack plug setup and sound system.
Overall a stunning bus in every department that ticks all the boxes and is ready for its new owner with just the turn of a key. Freshly serviced.
