1977 VW Bay Window Camper Van. Right Hand Drive.  Enormous Restoration Completed. New Interior.


Offered for sale one of the best bay windows we have ever seen! This bus has undergone an enormous restoration that took thousands of labour hours over several years with no expense spared on parts or materials!

The van is the most desirable specification being Right Hand Drive with the sought after Walkthrough internal configuration allowing access from the front cabin to the rear without the need to exit the vehicle and also the elevating pop top roof that adds a tonne of headroom and improves the light also.

It is not often a bus of this condition and specification comes on the market. A restoration that has been thorough in every single department including the finishing which often gets overlooked at the end.

Fully stripped down to reveal all panels showing rust or even signs of rust. These panels and associated areas have been professionally replaced prior to the vehicle being prepared and painted in VW Mango Green. This is an all time favourite early colour scheme with the beautifully contrasting white fibreglass elevating pop top roof that has also been completely stripped down of every component and prepped and painted inside and out.

The engine is a 1970cc reconditioned unit with twin weber carburettors. All other mechanical items replaced / renewed wherever necessary. Empi quick shift gear change. Wolfrace alloys. Fire suppression system in engine bay.

The bus has had all new brakes  including a replacement brake servo and stops incredibly well, similar to that of a modern T5.

Everything you look and see has been replaced or upgraded and work completed to the highest standard. The pop top canvas replaced is orange / white candy stripe featuring 3x opening vents with mosquito nets. There is also a door canopy / awning with poles that has been made to match and can fit onto the guttering of the van.

Custom fabricated steel rear roof rack support frame with eyelets to tie down luggage when travelling if additional space is required.
