1977 VW Bay Window Camper Van – Right Hand Drive – Sliding Ragtop Sunroof – Bespoke Interior Options.
A stunning Bay Window bus offered for sale. A well cared for bus that has been subject to a lot of restoration work. The body was stripped back to reveal any areas that required attention and all of the usual repair panels were replaced including new sills (inner and outer), wheel arches (inner and outer), doors, boot lid, engine lid etc. Any areas of rust found were cut out and replaced at the time before the bus was primed and freshly painted in stunning early VW style colour scheme, red and black. The black paint has been skillfully given a metal flake finish indicative of 1970’s styling / fashion that gives a lovely glisten in the sunshine and impresses folk wherever you take it!
The 2.0L air-cooled engine runs very well and the bus selects all gears positively including reverse with the added benefit of an Empi quick shifter. New Twin Weber Carbs installed for added performance (you can really notice the difference in power). New front and rear shock absorbers. Dropped Spindles. Braking system overhauled with new drums and shoes on the rear and discs and pads at the front. The bus has covered few miles since the major work has been completed.
One of the key selling points has to be the stunning Paris sliding rag top sunroof, which is in virtually new condition. This is one of the best upgrades / features you can add to a Bay Window that slides all the way back allowing full light and fresh air capacity inside the bus making the entire driving experience more pleasurable.
The interior layout on this bus currently comprises of a full width Rock n’ Roll bed and hard wood flooring. Please note that we specialise in the interior builds of these buses so are able to offer bespoke interior add-ons if requested. As interiors on these buses are suited to personal preference, we have chosen to leave the rear without cabinets as a blank canvas and to allow for the customer to choose if they would like any additional units installing. This can include a wide range of appliances, different colours / laminates etc. Example pictures are included in the listing of what we can offer. We can also change upholstery and add anything else to this interior on request.
This bus has had an enormous amount of money spent on parts and labour to ensure that it is ready to be driven and enjoyed.
