OVERVIEW
This is a stunning original 1971 Volkswagen Type 2 1600cc Bay Window Westfalia Camper Van that was imported from South Africa in 2007, hence being a rare righthand drive model and is finished in the original colour of champagne gold and is also a rare cross over model that has the earlier bay bumpers front & back & early bay front lights, indicators and the rear with new model indicators.

The current mileage on the clock is 59,000 miles (95,000km) & in ten years of owning the camper I have done 12,000 miles approx.
This is the original 1600cc engine and runs faultlessly.

The camper was first registered in 1971 and is tax exempt and comes with 11 months MOT (to End of June 2020) and has recently had its yearly service.

It has only had three owners from new over its 48years, and I am the third owner since June 2009.

SERVICE & UPGRADES.
The van comes with all the original paperwork from purchase to import and has been serviced every year by a professional VW specialist (Precious Metal of Essex), it has been professional lowered (subtlety) by TD2-Type two detectives of Cambridge and is fully adjustable by a mechanic.
New stock steel wheels finished in white with new white wall tyres to enhance classic look.
The front brake system has been fully upgraded, and has a new exhaust, and has had many other new stock parts fitted to bring it up-to a superb working condition to ensure reliability and safety.
It was professionally resprayed in 2008 in its original colour of champagne gold which is also described as mango green.

INTERIOR
The van has the original standard Westfalia interior thats immaculate and has not been modified in any way and is without a mark or blemish and the front dash looks brand new. It has the front cab bench seat with three professionally fitted seat belts for three people to travel up front and the rear seat has two seat belts, also with the rear facing double seat for when parked up when using the flip up dinning table.
The rear compartment has a rock n roll double bed plus a single bunk in the pop top.
It comes with the original front compartment suspended bunk, thats very useful when camping for storage or for a small child to sleep on.
A rear heating system has been professionally fitted, thats runs off of a standard camping gas cylinder thats position under the rear seat, which provides excellent heating levels for all camping conditions.
It also had an additional camping battery fitted with wiring system running power to a hidden central tray behind driver seat, which provides usb charging points and AC plug adapters to run auxiliary fridge unit without any visible impact on interior.

THE HISTORICAL STORY
This 1971 Westfalia Camper Van was imported from South Africa Johannesburg in 2007 and shipped into Tilbury port and was driven straight to the 2007 Sandown Volksworld show where it begin its uk celebrity status.

This camper van comes with a fully documented historical story thats supports its amazing condition inside and out. Starting with the first owner Mr Dicks who bought the camper in South Africa Johannesburg on the 30th December 1971 and sold it 35years later at the grand age of 85, and for 15years of its life it was stored in the owners boiled sweet factory and was not used, hence its great condition and low mileage. The van was not used for camping in its first 35years and the bed had never been slept in up until 2008.

The campers latest celebrity moment was to star in the movie 'Kubrick by Candlelight' that was filmed at the London Shepperton Studios in Workshop 25, where it played its part in the grande finale get away scene.

To conclude this overview, I would like add that this camper van is not a historical museum piece but has been well loved and really used to the full as a family camper van, from day trips out to the coast, picnic trips and sunset park ups, to runs to the garden centre, to week long camping trips in all weathers, and has been amazing to camp at various festivals, it has brought us so much joy and this is a reluctant sale and we want it to go to a good home that it will give the same joy its given us.
