1964 VOLKSWAGEN TRANSPORTER Panel/camper van - £24,995
In L87 Pearl White with grey upholstery to the cab and a splendid, unique interior conversion with a rock 'n' roll bed in the back.
This German built Panel van left the factory and was shipped to Toronto, Canada in early 1964. The original owners were Rainbow, Painting & Decorationg Ltd of Winnipeg, Manitoba and it was used for many years before being parked up in their yard.
It was rescued by a VW enthusiast and shipped to the UK in 2016 where it underwent a full restoration whilst leaving the exterior to show the original signwriting and battle scars. The original 'rainbow' design has been left in place along with various bumps and scrapes acquired over the last 55 years.
The underside was stripped and restored with new metal where necessary and the steering, brakes and suspension were renewed as required. The brakes were converted to a dual circuit set up and new heat exchangers and an exhaust went in. A memory stick with lots of pictures detailing the restoration before and after is in the file along with images of the van as it was found in snow bound Canada.
A rebuilt 1500, single port engine with a Solex carburettor was fitted, the original unit comes with the van as well, and the interior had new trims, door cards and floor mat, and seat belts were fitted. The original overhead heater box is in place.
In the rear, the interior has been trimmed in hessian and timber and a rock 'n' roll bed is fitted along with a rather nifty storage unit made from a converted barrel. There is LED lighting to the rear, a leisure battery, a USB port and an all-important, built in, Fireboy Supression System fire extinguisher is fitted in the engine compartment.
This wonderful Splitty has new tyres all round and recently completed a 500 mile trip to the UK from the owner's holiday home in France.
