Here comes summer and your ticket to a taste of warmth thanks to this VW “Splitty” campervan, the Holy Grail among VeeDub enthusiasts.
The base vehicle, a 1966 German-built 11 window Transporter, was exported to the United States and repatriated to Europe when it arrived on UK shores in 2008. Shortly after, the vendors, both Naval officers, acquired the VeeDub which underwent a total restoration with marque specialists. The rebuilt twin port 1.6 litre engine is coupled to a reconditioned gearbox, while the suspension is sympathetically lowered with coil springs over shock absorbers.
The interior high standards match the exterior, a sheer delight to behold. The owner is highly skilled – having built his own house extension, he plans to go on a boatbuilding course on retirement so the Splitty is now ready to float someone else’s boat.
Its fridge runs on electricity or gas, while the interior also features good lighting, a three quarter fold-down bunk, and a Zig unit to monitor the 12 volt and 240 volt interior electrics. The gas cooker is mounted on one of the twin side doors in period style so can be used inside or out, depending on the weather, making it ideal for those surf trips to Newquay!
The exterior is finished in the VW factory colours of pearl white over velvet green and there’s a perfect colour match to the leather front and vinyl rear seat facings. The original roof has been retained rather than converted to a pop-top, making secure garage storage easier.
It’s very appealing, highly practical, and great value when in the last few years some of these VWs with quality, and not always original, conversions have been achieving well in excess of £50,000. The copious history file, accompanied by a current V5C certificate, clearly shows why this particular camper has such great appeal.
Guaranteed to turn heads wherever it goes, this VW will be welcomed at any classic car or campervan event.
