The vendor bought this van in Oct 2012 as part-refurbished, already converted from panel van to high-top camper with rock ‘n roll seats-bed; front, rear & side fenders; curtain rails & curtains; and tinted windows. Also with: high-back ‘Captain’ style front seats with arm rests; JVC KD-G721 radio/CD/MP3 player with USB socket; and electrical hook-up connector at rear.previously green in colour.
Main work done in the first year of his ownership to Oct 2013:
BODY: Side windows removed, sills cleaned & re-welded where necessary, and new rubber seals. Complete exterior body prep & respray in VW ice-cream-white, paint code VW L90D. New VW roundels front & back.
INTERIOR: In the front cabin, varnished plywood cladding fitted.
Main work done in subsequent years:
ALSO INCLUDED: New Thetford portable toilet, unused. Box of spare parts. Servicing & repair handbook. Ring-bound documentation of repairs and refurbishments during his ownership, plus email from previous owner listing improvements made during his ownership.
RELIABILITY: The engine has never let him down. After 30 secs of pre-heating (it’s an old-style diesel, 1.7 litre) it starts immediately even in cold wet weather. After a few seconds of unburned fuel smoke (typical for an older diesel), the exhaust clears and the engine runs regularly. No faults and no breakdown recoveries in five years of ownership and 10,000+ miles. Very reliable. Economical too.
MINOR WORK REQUIRED TO BRING TO ‘ GOOD CONDITION’ STANDARD
REASON FOR SELLING: The van is too high to pass under the threshold of the barn that’s with the house the vendor has recently bought.
Auctioneers Notes: She would not win a beauty contest but with a low estimate of £1500 – £2000 this camper van is worth a second look. A lot of the hard work has been done, see attached amendment. Basically she is a half-finished project. The advantage to you is that you can build any specification you wish to create. She is a solid vehicle with a high top roof and can be viewed as from now, by appointment.
