This stunning example was supplied new in 1963 to San Ontonio, Texas, where it remained for over 50 years. It is understood to have originally been supplied as a Micro-Bus and confirmed by the VW Stiftung AutoMuseum Volkswagen, having left the factory in the colour scheme it wears today.

The VW was located in Texas in what is said to have been good but tired condition. It was0brought to the UK, whereupon a detailed restoration was commissioned. The advantages of the Texan climate was apparent, when upon peeling back layers of paint, the body was found in excellent condition throughout. The sills required repair which was done properly, and the buswas painted back to Sealing Wax Red (L53), with a Beige Grey (L472) roof. The 1600cc engine was stripped and rebuilt, new replacement parts were sourced where needed including a new fuel tank, bearings, bushes, window and door seals. The work was entrusted to the well-respected Brookside Aircooled VW Specialists, supported by invoices totalling c. £16,000.

The VW Camper was then sent to interior specialist VanWurks in Manchester. A complete new interior, in two-tone cream and mushroom was installed to excellent standards, as it still remains. In keeping with the style of the basic layout of the original, modern materials were utilised and added  to provide more useable functionality. The specification included a built-in fridge, two-ring hob, sink, “Rock & Roll” fold out bed, picnic table (which stores in the roof), up-rated Blaupunkt stereo system and a full alarm system. A complete new roof lining was correctly installed, with sound insulation and additional lighting. A modern power-management system provides leisure battery or if required, external hook-up power to all appliances and on-board systems. This power management system also acts as a battery conditioner for vehicle and leisure battery while in storage and provides 240V outlets in the vehicles for use with other devices. This additional work by VanWurks equated to approximately £8,000.

This stunning and eye-catching Camper, which remains in excellent condition throughout, really is the best of modern reliability with fantastic period looks, whilst providing a wonderful level of comfort, brimming with up-to-date technology. The perfect companion for touring holidays, trips to the coast, festivals or weekends away with a loved one!
