1992 Volkswagen T4 Camper 2.4 Diesel - Full MOT For Sale
Offered For Sale is my much loved 1992 VW T4 Panel Van Stealth Camper, Barbara!
I purchased her back in January 2017 as a well loved well used panel van needing a little help to achieve its full potential.
I ran her for the first few months to and from work whilst planning the work to turn it into a stealth camper. All of the work below has been completed with the full intension to keep Her but with work commitments there is likely to be little use in the year ahead so instead of Her sitting in the unit missing the sunshine I have decided to list and see if She can find a new home.
The bodywork is solid but is a few different shades of white, not all evident in the photos but they do all add a little character. I replaced the front passenger door as the lower section had rotted out. I also replaced the sliding door with a solid 2nd hand part that has seen previous dent repair. There has been various areas welded prior to my ownership, including sills, front arch (not at all tidy but solid for both the MOT's she's been through in my ownership). Rear inner arches and one front inner arch and wing also appear to have received repair, again pre my ownership and again solid but characterful!!!
The van has been lowered by myself using good quality rear springs and adjustment to the front torsion bar. I sourced and refurbished some Mercedes factory wide steel wheels and added good quality 205 55 16 part worn winter tyres.
She is powered by the 2.4 normally aspirated 5 cylinder diesel engine, very agricultural but also very reliable with a reasonable but not outlandish 195K covered. I have had a lot of work completed and added a lot of parts to Her in my ownership. Most recently of which and within the last 1000 miles has been a Cambelt and Waterpump (with garage receipt), diesel pump seal kit, new starter, alternator and battery and various service parts. The engine is just what you'd expect from the 2.4 lump, a little noisy (but a decent Sony stereo head-unit I installed offsets that). She's a little rattily with the odd oil leak but remains very strong and with the 5 speed box will happily sit at 70 mph all day long. She'd been to Devon twice now and back too without the 4th emergency service!!
Brakes were serviced when I first got her and still remain in good condition. Clutch remains at a good bite point and gearbox works well too although doesn't always like to be rushed when cold.
Interior has had a lot of time, effort and money spent on it to create a bespoke, functional and unique look. Fully stripped out first she has been fully foil lined to the sides and roof before recycled insulation being added behind all panelling. A 240v / 12v electrical system has been added with a quality Split Charger and large second battery. Colour change remote LED lighting within the rear too. Plywood panels have been lined properly in an Anthracite grey with a good quality stretch van liner. There are 4 x Fully belted RX8 Leather seats fitted, the front 2 have been modified to Ford Galaxy swivel bases so swivel around and lock off when forward facing. The 2nd row slide forward and backward and can be removed completely from the Unwin floor mounts. With the additional of the road sign rear stored table and removable leg this provides a dining / lounge area. Within the rear there is a 6' bench seat designed as a non travel seat that folds out into a good sized bed. This can be achieved with the 2nd row of seats still in place. Loads of storage within the handmade pallet wood cupboards with road sign theme continuing through the sliding doors (all purchased and not acquired!!!!) as well as under the rear seating. She also comes with rear curtains fitted and a front screen cover as well as Fire Extinguisher, Fire Blanket and CO2 detector.
She has 2 x Original keys and 1 x Additional Key and one key still operates all locks including the ignition.

Having covered little to no mileage since Her last and with 5 months remaining on her MOT I wanted to ensure She was ready for any new custodian so She will come with 12 months MOT once I have addressed 3 very minor fails this week. There are some advisories also and details can be sent to interested parties.
There is as your would expect a few little things that would benefit from a little time. The fuel gauge and heater gauge of the dash were intermittent but stopped prior to storage at the end of the summer. I usual carry a can of diesel but have also filled her up with diesel this week to ensure she ready for her new owner. The wiper arm has broken on my return from the MOT station, I will look to source a new one and fit if time allows. The glow plug light on the dash has never worked but its simply a case of turning the ignition, counting to 8 and starting her. Heater controls have also gone missing, no idea where but hoping they turn up!
She is offered for sale as a genuine private sale and is therefore Sold as Seen and is sold without warrantee implied or offered. Proof of ID and a copy of your driving license will be required prior to any accompanied test drives.
