1965 VW Split Screen Camper Van – Fully Restored to an exceptional standard throughout. As good as it gets!
If you looking to purchase a VW Split Screen Camper Van then we can absolutely assure you that it simply does not get any better than the bus we have offered here for sale!
Built in Germany on the 14th October 1965 and actually supplied to the German market from new having not been exported. Complete with its Birth Certificate from the Stiftung Volkswagen Automuseum in Germany from factory archives confirming the buses provenance and authenticity from new. The side loading door on this bus is a sliding version which is a rare and sought after feature amongst enthusiasts. Even brand new from factory in 1965, this bus would not have been anywhere near the standard and condition it is in now. The panel gaps and metal work are some of the best we have ever seen and the paintwork is superb having been painted in beautiful 1960’s Pastel Blue / Off White. The restoration quality of this bus truly speaks for itself and it is without doubt one of the finest examples we have ever seen in many decades of specialising in classic motor vehicles.
