1967 VW Split Screen Camper Van – Factory Right Hand Drive – Walkthrough – Brand New Dormobile Side Elevating Pop Top Roof. Bespoke Interior
One of the best buses that has ever graced our presence! This is a genuine German built 1967 bus (last year of production) supplied from factory in Right Hand Drive format. The bus is also a factory walkthrough model, which features a split bulkhead in the front so that you can walk from the cab area to the rear of the vehicle without the need to exit. This has long been one of the most sought after specifications on a Split Screen bus lending itself perfectly to a camping style interior at the rear.
This bus has undergone a massive restoration in recent years that began by stripping the vehicle to virtually a bare shell before undergoing meticulous preparation and then careful application of primer and paint in original early VW colours; Mango Green / White. The paintwork on the vehicle is stunning inside and out and can only truly be appreciated fully when seen in the flesh. It requires a great amount of skill, experience and patience to get a 50-year-old bus up to this standard.
Mechanically, the bus is in superb order with tonnes of receipts from well-known Volkswagen specialists supplying all the usual upgrades that owners spend thousands on so that in this case, you don’t have to. The reconditioned 1500SP engine is in superb order pushing the bus along beautifully throughout the gear range with plenty of power.
A full width ‘Dormobile’ side elevating pop top roof conversion has been installed at great expense to bring this bus to the absolute highest sought after specification for the UK market. Dormobile are a well-recognised company that have been going since the 1960’s and were one of the original companies that converted these buses from new and are still going strong today some 60 years later. Their product is absolutely superb having been perfected over the decades. We have installed the brand new conversion kit with an original style candy striped canvas in red / white. This bus now ticks every single box!
Currently the interior comprises of a full width rock n’ roll bed which is basically a three person seat that folds down to create a 6’ bed & twin facing rear seats behind each front bulk head.
As we specialise in bespoke interiors on these vehicles, please note that we are able to offer any interior of choice with this vehicle, which can be anything from minor amendments to a brand new interior featuring a different layout of choice. We can fit gas cookers, sinks, fridges, TV’s etc.. The possibilities are endless and all you have to do is ask.
