Solid right hand drive Devon conversion aircooled bus, manual transmission 2ltr engine, twin carbs. Original German manufactured bus. Mileage 25K
Gaston has lived in more exotic climates in his time. Years spent in warmer weather has been kind to his bodywork. Registered in the UK in 1974, he soon left and was shipped to Australia.
He was imported back into the country in 2003 by a couple in Tunbridgewells, they spared no expense in refurbishing him. Paintwork, upgrade to a rebuilt type 4 2ltr engine, reconditioned pop top, new interior. He was garaged by this couple and was used as Saturday run bus. If it was raining he didn’t go out that week, but was driven on the next dry day to keep him ticking over.
Since he joined me and became “Gaston”. I have had the following upgraded/installed, Bluetooth CD Radio, painted dash, power steering, wooden steering wheel, historical black and silver number plates, child cab hammock, whale gas night heater, 2 x 3 –point rear seat belts and engine suppression fire kit.
There is also a 2 burner hob, gas bottle, sink, pop up roof, rotating passenger seat, ¾ rock and roll bed and sunroof that the previous owner added.
I have a chunk of paperwork and notes from the previous owner who was extremely good in his record keeping, no stone unturned! Written reports on repairs and general running. There's always going to be maintenece required with the age of the vehicle - it's a way of life.
New paint job end of 2018, Gaston wasn’t painted back on the bus, to give the new the owner the option to change the name if they wish. Regularly wax oiled and again at the same time as respray. This was done before being stored inside for the winter.
The V5 is present and bears my name and address. The bus is a dream to drive with the power steering, the body work is in good condition and the neutral interior lets you personalise the bus to your own taste. One of the better buses out there.
If you are looking for a rare and exclusive model, this is the one. VW and a supplier made some very few units of this model in Brazil to work as dental amd medical clinic for some cities. Very very.....
