VW T25 Vanagon, 1985 LHD, Bronze Westfalia four berth camper built in Wolfsburg for the Californian market where it lived for its first 25 years. Remarkably well preserved with original 2.l Waterboxer engine (MV) with catalytic converter and fuel injection, original Westfalia interior fixings all in good condition. Thanks to life in a dry climate there are no structural rust issues. The engine was overhauled shortly before it was imported, has been regularly serviced since and runs sweetly. It's a great drive, happiest at 50 it will cruise at 70mph. It's been a reliable daily runner for the past ten years and a much loved weekend camper but our family of five has finally outgrown it.
This is an opportunity to secure an unusually solid, clean van packed with original features. It is ripe for a full restoration, or as is for use as a brilliantly original camper for family adventures. It’s very versatile: sleeping four (we had five and a dog) and comes with a drive away awning with additional sleeping pod. A sliding rail in the floor gives the option for an additional single seat, or a two-seat bench (both included) in addition to three seat belts on the rear bench seat.
There are some dents to the bodywork after a gentle slide on ice into a sapling (see photos). There is some surface rust along the seam of the side panel behind the kitchen unit. There are a few bubbles appearing in the paint work. It is an old vehicle and will need maintenance and attention to minor faults as they present.
