The UK Sports Cars Showroom
1967 VW Split Screen Camper Van. German Built & Fully Restored to an exceptional standard throughout.
We pride ourselves in stocking only the very best buses and in this instance we have one of the finest buses available anywhere in the world today for purchase. This bus has had an enormous restoration carried out professionally to the highest possible standard. The metal work is in superb order absolutely everywhere you look and the attention to detail is second to none.
When looking carefully at the bus, it soon becomes evident that this bus has undergone a very special restoration but not only that, it clearly was in superb shape prior to restoration owing to its easy life spent in California and Seattle before being imported into the UK. Every single place you look has been prepared with meticulous detail, even to the point where it makes us want to keep the bus for ourselves and not sell it on!
This is a 1967 Split Screen which was the last year of production in Germany, making the bus very desirable. Factory Left Hand Drive supplied to the US market. Having spent the majority of its life in a dry ‘rust free’ climate. Bare metal restoration completed and painted in year correct Volkswagen one year only colour, ‘Lotus White’.
