1967 Volkswagen T1 Camper - Split Screen For Sale

1967 Volkswagen MPV T1 Camper/Microbus Registration no. 297 DUB Chassis no. 247123019 Offered for sale following a stunningly well done four and half year restoration is this highly desirable 'T1' (split screen) 13-window Microbus. Purchased in the UK as an ex-California' example. It was swiftly delivered to marque expert Paul at The Bus & Beetle Depot in Carlton, Nottingham at which point the extensive restoration began. The paintwork was entrusted to Gary (owner of a 'Bay' model) at Alan Perry Garages, Nottingham, where the bus was refinished in its original colour scheme of Cumulus White over Sea Blue. The Bus & Beetle Depot rebuilt the mechanicals using new parts throughout including a Type 2 Detectives (T2D) adjustable front axle beam with dropped spindles, and a T2D IRS conversion. The opportunity was taken to upgrade the braking system, disc brakes being fitted at the front complete with a servo and dual-circuit master cylinder, while larger Type 3 drums were fitted at the rear. The bus now rolls on Radar 15" alloy wheels. Bears Motorsport of Dudley, West Midlands supplied a Freeway Flyer gearbox, set up specifically for this bus and its up-rated 2,030cc engine. Built by Laurie Pettit, the latter incorporates a counterweighted long-stroke crankshaft, and breathes via twin Dell'Orto 40DLRA carburettors. The estimated maximum power output is 100bhp. Type 2 marque specialists Custom Classic & Retro of Loughborough made the curtains and cushions, and re-trimmed the interior to the owner's personal specification, which included a shelf above the sun visors. Other noteworthy interior features include a special sound system with speakers mounted beneath the seats, head unit with internet connection, and a drop-down DVD player mounted on the fresh air box, while there are numerous sockets for charging mobile 'phones and other devices. Electrical power is supplied by two leisure batteries beneath the bed, and there is also a 240-volt mains connection and split charging system. It took 4½ years to complete this painstaking restoration, which is a reflection of the amount of work involved and the care taken to achieve such a high standard. Back on the road towards the end of 2013, the bus has covered only some 1,800 miles since then and is presented in commensurately good condition. It has featured in an article published in Volks World Camper & Bus magazine (July 2014 edition) a copy of which is on file. There can be no better way in which to enjoy the Goodwood meetings and other historic motor sports events.
