1969 VOLKSWAGEN DORMOBILE - £12,000 ovno
This Dormobile Camper van was made at the Hannover factory in Germany and shipped to Ramsgate, UK, to be converted by Dormobile. It was then shipped to South Africa where it stayed until 2009.
The Van was shipped back to the UK in 2009 and used daily until 2013, during that period it had new steering box fitted, ball joints replaced and a small amount of welding done under the front valance and under the cab steps.
The interior is original Dormobile layout with the walk through front seats, childs cot, two roof bunks and a double bed to rear. There is the original cool box, cooker/ grill, sink, buddy seats and plenty of storage space. The van comes with awning and inner tent, correct for the year.
It is Tax exempt, and is sold as seen
A family member bought the van in 2013, and used it for several long trips ( european), he replaced the engine, thus the low mileage, and had some more welding work done. I bought it from him last year, and i had a leisure battery and 3 point plug put in, i also had two 3 point seat belts put in the rear. Accelerator cable replaced, and new tyre. It also has a new battery.
I put it in for the MOT and it failed due to the following;
indicator tell tale inoperative nearside - FIXED
Windscreen washer provides insufficient washer liquid front- FIXED
Seatbelt anchorage prescribed area is excessively corroded offside front
Suspension component mounting prescribed area is excessively corroded offside front
Suspension component mounting prescribed area is excessively corroded nearside rear
Suspension component mounting prescribed area is excessively corroded offside rear
I have been quoted £1200.00 to fix the above ( welding), and pass the MOT ( from Volks Spares)
There are also some advisories, and cosmetic welding, which once done will only increase the value of the van
I am genuinely selling, as we do not use her enough, and whilst she is stored in an under croft carpark, so protected from the elements, i just do not have the time to enjoy her.
I would like to get £12k for her, which is less than i have put in, but i want her to carry on her story and go to a good home and see some new parts of the world... ;o)
All offers over £10.5 k will be considered
Thanks for reading
