1989 VW T25 Campervan Autosleeper - 56000 miles - on The Market SOLD

Sold by Patina
With just one previous fastidious owner from new, this incredible T25 Transporter with an Autosleeper campervan conversion is only being offered for sale after his sad passing. The garage that looked after it for him has agreed to sell it, so they are well placed to be able to advise potential bidders on its history and condition; they would also welcome any inspection in person as they are confident you won?t be disappointed when you see it in the metal.

In an incredibly original and well-preserved condition, the campervan has covered well under 60,000 miles. It has clearly been a much-loved and treasured member of the family, as the condition, both inside and out, is nothing short of stunning; you'd have no difficulty in believing us if we were to tell you that it is three years old, rather than 30.

Finished in white with contrasting red stripes, the bodywork is way, way better than you?d imagine; Volkswagen Transporters of this era are renowned for many things but rust-resistance isn't one of them. So, it's great to be able to tell you that the dreaded tin-worm hasn't made much of an appearance here at all. In fact, the only mention of corrosion on the online MOT history is surface rust on the exhaust back in 2011!

The panel gaps are good too, being tight and, more importantly, even which is a good indicator that there are no accidents or other major damage in its past.

Being completely honest, there are a handful of touched-in chips on the front, but also being honest, the seller states that there are no scratches or car-park dinks he has seen, the bodywork really could be five years old rather than thirty. Even the door shuts are as clean today as they were when it rolled off the production line. It really is in quite a remarkable condition.

Even most of the exterior plastic and rubber trim is still a deep black in colour rather than the more usual mottled mid-grey. In fact, the only flaws that stand out were caused by an excess of elbow grease when the previous owner was washing and polishing it; the transfers along the side are a little faded in places due to this, as are some of the corners. But are they really flaws? We'd argue that they aren't; they are a lovingly acquired patina acquired as a result of love rather than neglect, and we wish every vehicle we'd ever owned had been as cherished and cared for as this has been. Paint that's a little thin in places seems to us to be a small price to pay for such devotion.

The underside of the vehicle is equally clean. There's no evidence of any welding, dents or other variations from its original finish - nor are there great gobs of underseal, we can delightfully see just white paintwork with a hint of yellow Waxoyl (or similar). It really does look as good under there as the MOT history suggests it should be.

The steel wheels wear their OE Volkswagen plastic wheel-trims with pride (this is a vehicle from the 1990s, after all!) and are shod with matching tyres, further proof that the original owner was a prudent and cautious man that looked after his vehicles properly.

If we are being ultra-picky, then the number plates could do with being replaced. If you are so inclined, a detailing of the exterior plastics would return them to a consistent colour; for example, the two exterior mirrors are various shades of grey. (Sadly, we are referring to their colour rather than their sexual proclivities. What they are, nobody knows.)

There is an exterior chrome ladder plus the usual exterior water tank filling point.?much more text on our website.
