1964 VW Split Screen Camper Van – Fully Restored Nov 2017. For Sale
An original, German built and factory supplied Left Hand Drive bus exported to Philadelphia where the bus has endured most of its life. Later imported into the UK where the bus has just undergone a massive restoration to bring it to its current standard. Birth Certificate, matching numbers and relevant paperwork comes with the bus to prove its authenticity from new.
The bus has been fully stripped and repainted in year correct colours, Sealing Wax Red / Beige Grey. One of the most popular and sought after colour schemes on a 1960’s bus.
Reconditioned engine running musically on a stainless exhaust system and a uprated disc brake conversion at the front with new brakes all round for optimum stopping power.
We have freshly upholstered the bus throughout to include an early grey wool cloth headliner professionally installed and trimmed all the way down to the waistline throughout the bus before the glass was reinstalled. This alone is a £3,000 exercise when done to this standard and far better than it would have been from factory.
Original front seats freshly upholstered in Sand surf Grey Vinyl with contrasting white piping and fluted inserts along with a brand new twelve piece panel card set in matching upholstery with fluted insert sections on the cab and cargo doors.
This bus comes with one of our luxury yacht style bespoke interiors which features a full width rock n’ roll bed (The best available on the market) complete with a four piece bed cushion set in memory foam with stitched vinyl to match the rest of the upholstery.
The interior features a large bespoke cabinet built using solid oak and veneer pressing with a high gloss black Formica top and matching doors. Complete with a retro original style 1960’s Devon edging trim and matching black insert so that the interior has a modern feel whilst retaining a retro twist.
The large cabinet houses a brand new fridge that can be powered by both 12V or 240V operation.
Luxurious high gloss laminate flooring and table to match with a chrome pedestal setup so for removability at your discretion and finally a curved oak skirting board to sit neat and flush against the rock n’ roll bed.
This is one of the most luxurious and still practical interiors you will ever find and costs around £15,000 to build. The bus has only done test mileage since its restoration and is as close to a ‘new’ vehicle as you are ever likely to find on a 53-year-old vehicle.
Overall a stunning bus ready for another 50 years of service. Comes fully MOT’d and ready to drive away.
