Lot 167 – Volkswagen “Bay Window” Van ripe for Camper Conversion. 1977
Estimated Value : £8,000 – £10,000
The very good condition of this 1977 “Bay Window” VW Bus is down to the efforts of its last owner. He spent years and a lot of money getting the body work how he wanted. Making sure all the rust these are famous for was professionally removed and made good to a very high standard. Then a high quality respray took place into the nice “retro” colours you see here. All the mechanics were refreshed where needed and in June this year it passed its MOT with no advisories.
Unfortunately funds are needed for a business project so a halt was called before this project was finished, so although the body and mechanics are both excellent, the old tired interior was removed and has not been replaced. Not a bad thing for three reasons. 1. You can see how solid the floors etc are before being covered up. “. It leaves the new owner free to choose the layout of the new interior (We can forward the details of somebody we know that will design, supply and fit for you if required) and three the reserve on the bus is significantly lower this way.
