Footnotes

  • This right-hand drive Volkswagen Microbus was imported from the dry state of Adelaide, Australia in 2012 and subsequently restored (all import duties, taxes, etc have been paid). The vehicle was stripped back to a bare bodyshell and then media blasted with crushed glass, which gives a superior surface finish, and then primed. It was then lovingly restored by a show-winning Volkswagen restoration specialist. Panels replaced included both inner sills, both outer sills, front wheelarches, offside 'C' post, cab floor, lower front panel, inner lower front panel, and offside rear corner, while localised repairs were made to the cargo-area floor and sliding door outer skin. New-old-stock panels were used.

    The bodyshell was then sent away for a full bare-metal re-spray, including 'stone chip' application and under-body colour coding in a period VW colour. Re-assembly was undertaken by the restoration company, with exemplary attention to detail down to every original nut and bolt. The door mechanisms, door stays, heater controls, steering box arms, fuel neck jubilee clips, air filter clips, sliding door mechanism and catch, door latch plates, etc, etc are all genuine original Volkswagen parts refinished in yellow zinc plate. Parts chromium plated to 'show' standard include the original exhaust tail pipe, fuel neck and filler cap, hub caps, fuse box holder, engine lid stay, wiper arms and blades, dash vents, door handles, engine lid lock, number plate holders, and light reflector plates. The mirrors are new-old-stock and had never been used before - both were still in their original boxes. Also in their original boxes were the bumper over-riders (an option not fitted originally) with rubbers stamped 'VWOA'; the list goes on. The provision of front disc brakes and an alternator conversion are the only other deviations from factory specification notified.

    The interior was completely upholstered and re-trimmed, including the dash pad, hand-stitched grab handle, cab seats and rear benches, spare wheel cover, headliner, all door cards, top of engine cover, and walk through pads. New carpeting was fitted throughout.

    This is a rare opportunity to own an early microbus that has been featured in the best-selling VW Camper magazine, which stated that it is one of the best they have seen. This concours award-winning VW microbus is offered with current MoT and a V5C Registration Certificate.
