1966 VW Split Screen Camper Van. Factory German Built & Right Hand Drive. Walkthrough Specification. ’13 windows’. Bespoke Camping Interior
As we are currently going through our busiest ever sales period on record, we are delighted to finally be able to offer some new stock for sale. This is the kind of Split Screen we dream of getting our hands on, offering the ultimate specification throughout. This is a genuine German built and factory Right Hand Drive Split Screen that also has the added benefit of being a ‘walkthrough’ model. This means that there is a split bulkhead allowing you to walk from the driving area to the rear without the need to exit the vehicle. This is a massive sales point and highly desirable specification. The bus also has two additional side windows at the rear making the total number of windows 13 which again adds to its look whilst providing more light into the bus at the rear.
History file dating back and also photographs showing the buses restoration that has been carried out more recently where the bus has been stripped right back, carefully prepared and repainted in year correct VW colours, Sea Blue / Cumulus White. The entire inside and outside of the shell has been painted and the job done properly. Original style 14’’ steel wheels with brand new polished stainless hub caps.
Lovely mechanical specification to include a Steering Rack conversion that replaces the old-fashioned steering box for an upgraded and more precise feel when driving. 1600cc Reconditioned engine and recently overhauled gearbox. Upgraded straight axle setup on the rear to allow for superior suspension and higher top end cruising speed. Adjustable front beam on the front. Absolutely made for use on modern roads and having had thousands spent on upgrades so that you don’t have to.
Bespoke headliner in cream vinyl with several LED downlights installed. Cream door cards / blue piping. Seats can easily be upholstered to match or we can change the entire upholstery easily. The bus currently features an L shaped layout with a rock n’ roll bed suitable for light camping / day use. Please strongly note that we specialise in the build and installation of bespoke interiors of these buses and we would be happy to make any amendments / replacements of the existing interior with our own bespoke work. We can easily add fridges, gas cookers, sinks, heaters etc. The possibilities are endless and we are always happy to discuss custom work.
Comes freshly serviced with 12 months MOT, which even though no longer required by law, allows for a 3rd party independent inspection on the vehicle.
