1972 Australian VW Camper Van • Sold

As with most buses of this age, over the years issues arise such as rust, resulting in panel replacement and subsequent re-painting, new engines, interior work, the list goes on. So, when one like this comes along that's never been re-painted, never had any interior work done, and is still running on it's original engine, it's almost unbelievable.

Allow us to introduce you to this amazingly rare, retro, right hand drive Australian Dormobile. The conversion in an Aussie Dormobile is different to it's UK counterpart as the laminates are a slightly different colour and the push buttons on the handles are different.The cooker and cool yellow sink looks like it's never been used. All of the flooring and fabrics are original and in great condition, not faded, not worn, not torn, just amazing.

The roof canvas is perfect and the colour is very period for this bus. The bunk beds are perfect, the dashboard is uncut, there's a stereo fitted in the glove box, all gauges and dials work, and unlike most, the steering wheel isnt cracked either.

The original fridge works perfectly, it has a single and grill hob, sink and water tank, plenty of storage, rear seat belts, 240v hook-up, 2nd battery, bonus charger, tow bar, bike rack, breathable cover, new white wall tyres (commercial white walls supplied by us) and two rear interior tube lights.

The engine runs great and pulls very well, the gear change, brakes and steering are all amazing, but then it's only covered 45k miles from new, not bad for a 42 year old, and to make it even better the road tax is free. It also comes with the following:

12 months MOT, 12 months tax, 6 months warranty on engine and gearbox, rolling road tuned, bike rack, cover and mag featured. Be quick as this baby won't be around for long.

But why buy from us? Well, because we provide an extensive range of additional services including lowering, insurance-approved alarms and tracker systems, 240v hook-up systems, zig charging systems, upgraded suspension and IRS conversions, bigger hook-up systems, better MPG air-cooled engines and custom-made upholstery. And there's a lot more besides so come and book a test drive with us today, you'll be glad you did.
