The UK Sports Cars Showroom
1966 VW Split Screen Camper Van. Right Hand Drive. Walk Through. Pop Top. Fully Restored to the highest possible standard.
The ultimate specification for a split screen bus being factory German built and in Right Hand Drive for starters, exactly what you want for UK use. This bus is also a rarer walk through model meaning that you can walk from the front to the back without the need to exit the vehicle, a highly desirable format.
The bus was also an original Devon conversion and features the rare Dormobile full width side elevating pop top roof and twin bunk beds in effect making this bus a 4-berth camper. A testament to the quality of Dormobile products is that the company is still going strong today over 60 years later!
This bus was owned by a friend of Alan Schofield, the elusive and well respected man who started one of the best and most successful VW parts suppliers in the country in the 1980s and who we use regularly for the majority of our parts.
This bus has been meticulously restored to the highest possible standard with amazing attention to detail throughout to keep to exact factory specification wherever possible. The entire vehicle has been on a rotisserie and stripped to bare metal and the underside prepared to an equal standard to the rest of the bus. Then finished in textured body coloured paint so that you can see every square inch of well-prepared solid steel underneath.
If you are looking for an iconic split screen bus and also a good investment being the absolute best selling spec then this is the bus to buy. Finished in stunning all-time favourite year correct VW colours Titian Red / Beige grey with paintwork prepared to a glass like finish throughout.
The bus currently has an Original and year correct Canterbury Pitt interior that is sought after among enthusiasts but as we specialise in bespoke joinery and interior design / fitment in these buses we would be delighted to build your exact interior of choice brand new in whatever specification and layout you desire. Please contact us to discuss this further and note that some of the pictures showing interiors are examples only of what can be done.
Comes fully serviced, tested thoroughly and with 12 months MOT even though no longer a legal requirement on classic vehicles for added peace of mind.
