This van was ordered new from Australia as part of the Tourist export scheme, it was collected from the Factory in Germany by its Australian owners. The colour was also special order : sealing wax red, this is normally an early split screen colour. We are really happy with the colour choice and it justs adds to the specialness of this van.
We sold this van 11 years ago, the bus has been owned by the same chap since sale and is now offered back from us the importer dealer.
Really happy to have this van back in for sale, it combines Westfalia quality fit out with the forward hinge roof and the rare double roof bed suitable for 2 large kids. And that paintwork is just unreal. If you are looking for a van that combines originality with high class paint and trim this is the bus for you..
We stripped the van 11 years ago and was as rust free as they come, we then shipped the van out to Brick Kiln racing who as usual executed a faultless finish. the reflection really is so deep. upon return from paint we then rebuilt this bus the G'day way with all Genuine or German parts. All Glass was new, all seals were new, all rubbers new, 1 key fits all the locks. The interior was re-trimmed in cream vinyl and brown leather piping.
The van was subjected to the following work back in 2010.
Original features of this special bus
The owners has chrieshed this bus but used it to camp and take along their young grand children too. The owner has kept this bus in wonderful conditon and even invested in a pressure tent to keep the humidty and dust off whilst stored in their garage.
The owners decided to have the engine rebuilt 2 years after collection. The 2 litre engine was stripped and rebuilt by a time served vw specalist local to the owners. The engine had all new:
We will install a set of new old stock Dellorto carbs replacing the single progressive weber currently installed. we will also properly prepare all our stock once sold post viewing as standard on every bus we sell.
A lovely bus we sold back in 2014, built to the clients spec at the time. We have looked after this bus every year and Winter stored it too for the current owner, with a heavy heart it is time for them to sell.
