Lot 182 – Volkswagen T2 Camper “Cal Look”1600cc Twin Carb 1972
Estimated Value : £20,000 – £25,000
Probably one of the prettiest V Dub Campers on the market today. Having just undergone an 18 month program of improvements, the end result is as you can see.
From its very expensive respray into period “Porsche Mint Green over 70’s VW white”. This was done after all areas of concern were addressed, including new metal replacement drivers side door step, seat belt mounts, sliding door outer sill, rear arch half panels. Then new rubber seals were fitted throughout, doors windows etc. New rear bumper and mounts. New chrome work and locks. Very expensive “Super light” alloys were fitted and low profile tyres, this with the lowered suspension on the Van and the colour, helped to obtain the “Cal Look” that the owner was aiming for.
Inside the dash was colour coded, an expensive wood and ally steering wheel fitted and the front cab area resprayed. Seats were all in good order so just cleaned and re-padded where needed. A rather loud stereo utilising a Sony CD player, 2x Alpine 700W amps and a 10 Speaker surround sound system is fitted.
The engine is a rebuilt 1600cc Twin Carb with lightweight aluminium fly wheel attached to which is a custom exhaust system, giving a purposeful growl when revved. The engine bay itself was refinished in the matching white while the engine was out so is now very clean and tidy.
