I am sadly selling my 1974 VW Type 2 called 'Mae', bought originally as an ongoing project she has remained sedentary for a number of years. Unfortunately, I can no longer sustain the time and finances required to maintain her. I will be as honest as I can with all the details and required work and happy to answer any questions you may have.

ENGINE: I had a completely new refurbished 2.0 ltr engine with twin carbs fitted to replace the old one which was completely shot. The engine has less than 500 miles on it since the refurb. ( The carbs are not refurbished, but were cleaned and refitted. ) Currently, they need re-balancing and throttle idling adjusting.

Brand new battery and replacing front left tyre before sale.

Otherwise mechanically the fuel gauge is faulty and needs the float replacing, I have a new part for this which I will include in the sale. And the small engine cooling fan is faulty, I believe its a wiring issue. Easy fix but recommend taking it easy in hot weather.

She has a slightly loose steering bearing which also needs work, however, this is advisory. I was in discussions with my mechanics about putting a new wiring loom in, this one is okay but some things are mismatched and getting older, something for the future maybe.

MOT hasn't been done this year, legally this is okay as she is in the historic category, but could do with a little checkup.

Tax is free for a vehicle of this age.

Replaced wheels for some original ones, however, two front ones have slow punctures and could do with new tires.

BODYWORK: The bodywork has seen better days and is the main things in need of restoration. The van was originally a panel van and had windows fitted a way back, obviously, they weren't done well as there is extensive bubbling around the windows on one side, which I will try and photograph as best I can. There are also minor rust bubbles on the lower section but nothing easily sorted. As for paintwork, it is mismatched where repairs were, could do with some respraying.

I stripped out the old mouldy interior and began work on a new one, this is currently not fitted because of the required bodywork. This will be included in the sale you can take or leave it, but I have two original T2 seats in brown leather and interior cupboards for the length of the van,

As for underside rust, there is a little corrosion in the front left wheel arch and a few other spots as far as I'm aware.

As for the pop-top, the top itself is fine but the canvas needs fixing/replacing as its old and potentially needs new pistons for its raising. It still works fine. However, some of the woodwork around the pop-top needs replacing and repairing.

The driver side door has extensive rust on the bottom of the door. However, I was not too concerned as door panels are easily replaced and unlikely to spread further.

That's all I can think of at the moment to give you the best rundown I can on the vehicle. This is going to be a project van or one that needs a fair bit of money/work put into it. I've tried to be as honest as I can with the vehicle as I would like to see her go to a good home where she can be properly maintained and restored.

I know there's a lot to take in there, and a lot that needs restoring both now and in the future, but she has been a fantastic van with real character and I've had many memories driving her. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask I will do my best to help.
