**NOW SOLD** - Thanks for all your interest....
With more than £80,000 of receipts for it’s incredible build, we’re really pleased to offer this beautiful VW Campervan which, as you can imagine, is very special indeed….

A 1965 build but April ’66 registration, “Roxy”, as she’s now known, is an ex-Arizona bus repatriated to the UK in early 2008. Roxy already benefitted from a Rancho ‘Freeway Flyer’ gearbox and straight-axle conversion, dropped spindles and adjuster, meaning she already had the lowered look….

Purchased by her present owner in April 2008, Roxy was intended for one of the most thorough & meticulous restorations we’ve seen in some time….
Alan Sutton and his team of extremely skilled craftsmen at Creative Coachworks in Shrewsbury, Shropshire were hired to do the job.

Over the course of the next 2+ years, Alan and his team, in partnership with the visionary owner, would go on to create one of the most enviable VW Bus’s available today, reborn in the style of a 19-Window Samba. …The eagle-eyed here will spot that VW didn’t actually manufacture a 19-Window Samba, but if they did, it’d look exactly like this!…

Creative Coachworks began in earnest in March 2013. The original ’66 bus was indeed a cargo door variant, but obviously, the rebuild incorporated the addition of the eight windows in the roof…

Not just tasked with bodywork and paint, Creative Coachworks were actually responsible for all areas of mechanical configuration, engine rebuild, the addition of rack and pinion steering, the addition of servo-assisted CSP front disc brakes and much more besides. In fact, the only element which wasn’t handled by CC in-house was the aforementioned nearly-new Rancho gearbox, which, after expert inspection was given a full bill-of-health and used in the final build.

The 1641cc engine was required to be fully stripped and rebuilt with brand new VW crank, plus, Scat C25 cam. Roxy was also married with Twin 40 Kadron carburettors and treated to a Vintage Speed exhaust system with heat exchangers.

The chosen colour palate for Roxy is VW L90D Pastel White over B28 Ice Blue (BMW Mini colour). The interior trim expertly created and installed by CC comprises hand-crafted full leather seats in white with brown trim accents, plus new carpets and wooden flooring. Rock ‘n’ roll bed, single rear-facing seat, and an auxiliary battery to power interior lights, heater system and fridge are also present. Additionally, Roxy has a camper-style 240V hook-up system fitted, and modern radio/cd player with four speakers. A stainless-steel roof-rack and what seems like a mile of chrome complete ‘the look’.

Roxy is accompanied by more than £70,000 of restoration invoices alone, with not a penny wasted. That doesn’t even include the cost of the Bus when purchased before restoration! All the work that Alan and his team completed was finished in 2015, with gentle usage since.

On the road, Roxy holds good road-manners, she steers accurately, stops when asked and gear-changes are as simple and as accurate as you’d expect for a Bus of this era. An absolute credit to her owner who’s adored her, the sad reality is that this person’s lifestyle doesn’t allow Roxy to be used and enjoyed in the fashion which was imagined when the restoration was undertaken.

More than 500 pictures showing all stages of the comprehensive & wonderfully executed restoration accompany the history file. We urge you to come and see all of this for yourself.
