    1975 vw firebus for sale...
£13,800 ...offers invited.
this bus was used for 34 years by the fire chief of the german fire service in schleswig-holstein, where it was permanently kept under cover when not in use. It was maintained and serviced on a very regular basis by the firecrews...and therefore runs immaculately... being a fire chief's vehicle, and therefore an emergency services one, it had t. Always start immediately and run in tip-top order... anything other than that would not have been permissible.
i have photos of it when it was actually still in service!
i am it's 3rd owner, it left the german fire service in 2009 , when it was imported by a chap in york. I bought it in march 2017.
the bus is m.o.t. And tax exempt.
it has only just done 42,000 miles! And i personally have only done 3,500 miles in it in the 3 and a half years i have owned it... illness being the main factor in that!
engine-wise it is a 1600 that runs excellently, and always starts first time.
it has had a new throttle linkage assembly fitted and the suspension is ultra-smooth!
it has been well cared for, well-shod, and the red and black leather upholstery etc... is fabulous!
it has a full-size rock'n'roll bed
it also has a good sound system with 'hands-free' phone capability.
it has some rare and interesting features not found on most vw busses...
as well as the normal heating system, it has an additional petrol heater, which works independently ... i have only ever use. It once, but i can say that it certainly throws the heat out!
it also has the original 'blues-and-two's' flashing light (which is in full working order!) and a switch for the klaxon (which was made inoperable by the fire chief before leaving germany, apparently it would have been illegal if still in working order!).
added to this the back hatch is 'solid' i.e. ... no window in the back! This, i am told, is very rare, and indeed i have been offered £1000 just for the back door on it's own!
the bus is having a new battery pan fitted on the 27th of September ...am only selling as a t5 now takes up most of my time.
any viewing and/or enquiries welcome in the area.
