One owner from new 1977 VW Type 2 Camper Van For Sale

I am advertising this on behalf of my parents elderly neighbour who is unfortunately giving up driving owing to his advancing years. I have known this vehicle all my life. He bought this van new on 3rd October 1977 from the local Volkswagen dealer, when he traded in a 1962 split-screen (and what would that have been worth today?) and it has been his daily driver ever since. Obviously, he is the only recorded keeper on the log book. It has always been used whatever the weather and it has always lived outside. It was bought as a panel van but with the reinforced floor because, as a carpenter by trade, he intended to do the conversion himself. However, owing to the people who said they would do the roof letting him down, it was fully converted within a few months by a company in Reading who were well-known at the time (I believe the details are in the history file) The Camper has always been meticulously maintained by specialists since day one. It has now done 130,000 miles from new, with the engine having been replaced, owing to a fault with the original unit, at 100,000 miles. I can confirm that it is both quiet and smooth for a 1600cc air-cooled VW unit. Apart from that the vehicle is pretty much original. All the heat exchangers were replaced last year by a marque specialist. It is not concours by any means, but it is remarkably good. It has a few marks here and there, which might benefit from some remedial paintwork, and some surface rust showing now in a couple of places but nothing serious. It also seems to be missing the rubber seal around the roof for some reason. The bodywork is remarkably original, with just one bit of welding required to the inner sill / subframe area a few years back. Apart from that, it has needed no attention because it has been cleaned and protected underneath every year from new. As such, it has a remarkably clean MOT history. (I am not usually a big fan of blanked out number plates in car adverts but because this is not my vehicle I thought I would play safe with this. Any interested parties will be told the registration so that they can see the MOT history for themselves) Inside, the vehicle has storage lockers in the passenger area, a gas cooker, a sink and a sleeping area with bunk beds. The original seat covers are slightly faded these days and look to have become slightly damp with the decline in use over the past ten years or so (averaged 1,500 miles a year for the past few years) but do not feel damp to the touch. The roof opens, stays up and closes again fine, although is a bit stiff from lack of use and would arguably benefit from a bit of time spent cleaning and lubricating everything. The pictures were taken in April of this year. There is a valuation certificate from Hannover Heritage restoration company in the history file dated 2007 which put its value then at £15,000. In summary, this is an honest, clean, well-maintained one-owner Van which, with a bit of time spent on doing the small jobs that the owner is sadly no longer able to do, it could be a real show stopper. However, seeing as the vehicle just needs to go now, and be appreciated by a new owner, the owner will let it go for close to the £13,000 mark. Viewing can be arranged by appointment through myself. I work odd hours so if I don’t answer the phone straight away please leave a message and I will get back to you. More pictures available upon request too. Note: the owner's son and I took the van to Busfest at the Three Counties Showground over the weekend and it performed faultlessly. It also trundled down the motorway quite happily between 55 and 60 mph
