ModelT2 Bus (Type 2)
For sale a very rare and unique vw Splitscreen
This van came into the Uk from Australia in the 70s and was owned by a vw engineer.
9 Months mot, Tax exempt.
As you can see it has been extended at the rear and a Chevrolet 2.7 ltr air cooled flat 6 cylinder engine fitted with the chevrolet gear box and axle. Auto gearbox ( Corvair )
All new tyres fitted and it will come with boxs full of spares.
The engine sounds beautiful with a nice deep growl.
The rear suspension is the same a corvette
The van has recently had all new brakes and pipes, and the engine and gear box have had new oils filters, and new push rod tube rubbers.
There is a new Propex gas heater fitted under the vehicle that blows up through the original front vents
You can use it whilst driving as well.
The van can sleep 4 as there are 2 bunks in the roof that fold away.
The seat folds down to make a nice long bed in the rear as the van is slightly longer than standard.
The last picture is the inside of the moonraker roof there are 12 volt spot lights fitted behind.
2 110 amp batterys are fitted with an 80watt solar panel fitted to the rear roof, the alernator also has a sterling 3 stage charger fitted to it.
The box between the seats is a 12 volt waeco compressor fridge freezer, only draws 1.2 amps/hour
Has a porta loo under the blue cover in the seats
The van has been waxoiled and is very solid, it does have a few rust bubbles on the sides ads to the patina, underneath is also solid.
Comes with a suncamp awning that slides into a rail over the barn doors.
Really nice to drive and better on fuel than the vw engine.
This is a very rare vehicle and certainly draws a crowd.
If you want a useable camper that you stay in a field without electric hook up, will drive anywhere with reliability, sleep 6 with the awning, has a w/c, large fridge, sink and cooker, this could be the one.
