This left-hand drive Type 2 VW Camper was purchased by the vendor in 2017 having previously been imported from California. Presented in pale blue with a blue and white interior, the Camper is fitted with a standard 1,600cc engine with twin weber carburettors. Also included are walk through model six seats, a Westfalia roof rack, and a custom surfboard table. In 2007 the VW was treated to an extensive renovation including a top-end engine rebuild as well as a gearbox and brake overhaul. Having completed modest mileage since it both presents and drives very well. The Camper has resided in the vendors private collection and has been maintained to a high standard during his ownership. Offered in the sale is a comprehensive history file detailing the maintenance work and the current UK registration document. A very good example ready for a new custodian. Please note the vendor is keeping the Dub Box trailer, and so this is not included in the sale.
