1972 VW T2 Bay Window Camper Van. Dormobile Pop Top Roof. Right Hand Drive.
Very desirable in factory Right Hand Drive format. A well cared for and lovely example throughout. The bus benefits the iconic and renowned Dormobile side elevating pop top roof designed by Martin Walter, truly testified by the fact the company is still going strong today.
The side elevating roof offers an impressive increase in headroom allowing you to stand up inside the bus adding further comfort and opulence. The roof also includes two original dormobile fold out bunk beds which are ideal for children or small adults to sleep in and sure to create many happy camping memories!
The bus has been well cared for and regularly serviced, particularly throughout its early life as can be seen from the ultra-rare original VW service factory record booklet from 1972. This is one of only two of these that I have ever seen. The bus is finished in an original VW colour scheme, Niagara Blue / Pastel White and presents very well throughout. Engine recently removed for full service and engine bay stripped and fully painted / detailed in blue at the same time.
Structurally very solid underneath and mechanically in good condition benefitting from many recent mechanical upgrades including a fully reconditioned 1600TP engine supplied from The Engine Shop, added oil temperature & pressure gauges as well as a volt meter and clock in the front help to keep track of the engines performance.
Uprated Bilstein shock absorbers all round July 2023. These are an expensive game changer that transform the ride quality of any bus making the suspension feel far superior to factory. Brakes gone through and upgraded with a new servo fitted July 2023.
Retrosounds latest radio added at the same time also. This is an upmarket period looking radio that offers modern functions at the same time and is paired with two new speakers in the back. New mahogany rimmed steering wheel and polished stainless horn push fitted at the same time.
Interior by Calypso Campers featuring a ¾ width rock n roll bed, side cabinetry with plenty of storage. Good quality fridge to keep your drinks cold, 12v leisure battery and split charge relay system, 240v mains hookup, power management system, 12v sockets inside bus. Detachable pedestal style table.
Blue floral theme added to table tops and cupboard doors. Lino flooring in theme with the rest of the bus (Either could be removed / changed if not to your preference). Brand new upholstery throughout July 2023 in pastel grey / off white piping with fluting full span including door cards, bed cushions and front seats. New curtains at the same time to suit.
Overall a stunning bus throughout offering everything you could want and more from a classic VW to build and create many memories with your family and friends. Comes fully serviced, checked over and with a new MOT even though no longer required by law on a classic vehicle for added peace of mind.
