1976 VW Bay Window T2 Camper Van
For sale is a charming and unique 1976 VW T2 Camper Van, imported into the UK from Germany in 1986 and tax and MOT exempt. This van has been lovingly restored by the current owner over the past 4 years, with all rust, filler, and bad welds removed and replaced with new inner and outer sills, rear corners, front, battery trays, and rear end to make it solid again.
The van had some starting and stopping issues which were fixed with new parts, including a new alternator, starter motor, electronic ignition kit, leads, carb, inferno coil, battery, fuel pump, calipers, pads, and brake lines. Additionally, the front ball joints, shocks, and bearings were replaced. This van is now in excellent condition, with two Porsche tombstone front seats, a buddy seat with a built-in seat belt, and a rock and roll bed with lap and shoulder belts. It can comfortably seat and transport 5 people, and the brakes work perfectly.
There are still a few things that need to be addressed, such as a headliner or board, a paint design, new seals on the front windscreen and sliding door windows, a slow puncture on the front right tire, surface rust on the bottom of the cab doors, and an oil leak that may require the engine to be taken out to fix the oil cooler. However, the van is still reliable and ready to take you on your next adventure.
Please note that the van does not have a sink or cooker, but it’s perfect for those who prefer cooking outside on a Cadac or BBQ. It has been well-maintained and used, with many summer trips taken and lots of smiles and waves received along the way. This camper van is a labor of love and will surely bring joy to any adventurer.
