1979 RHD Devon Moonraker • SOLD

The following 12 months saw the restored body go from a welded Kombi to a professionally painted body shell with a Devon Moonraker roof conversion (a copy but a brand new kit) all fitted by us to the highest standard. Before the body was painted, the complete undercarriage was sand-blasted, bare metalled, then painted in POR15 with a thin layer of stone chip coating, which looks amazing and will last many years.

The pop top was fitted next, then we carried out a complete mechanical replacement, new braking system, new electric power steering (which makes this baby a dream to park), new suspension, a re-conditioned gearbox, all new rubbers all round, new Michelin tyres with painted wheels and all electrics cleaned, the attention to detail was second to none. The engine isn't a standard 2000cc Type4 either, it was built by Tony from Micro Giant who build performance and better mpg engines for us, so tis baby is not only more economical, it sounds amazing too, in fact, it's the smoothest engine we've ever heard. It also has a CSP full stainless system, new twin carbs, painted tinware and fan housing good enough to eat your dinner off.

Now a bit about the interior. After we'd painted the van inside and out, we then sound-proofed it with the latest Dynomat, then packed it with a sheep's wool insulation. The latest DAB stereo and high standard speakers were then put in, along with a cobra alarm and tracker system. An LPG gas tank for the cooker and Propex gas heater, 249v hook up, 2nd battery and split charger, bonus charger, compressor fridge were installed, and interior units made by All Things Timber, which is very hard wearing, hand made and looks amazing. The van also had a Brooms Grove upholstery, which again looks great.

Overall, it's an extremely professionally restored camper that's been built to last for many years, in fact, we'd go as far as saying it could quite possibly be the best one in the UK at the moment. Eight months ago this van cost over £56k, and now after a 6 month trip around Europe the customer is having to sell due to having a baby. It comes with a 6 month warranty (12 months warranty available). It also has 6 month's tax and has recently been fully serviced. It goes without saying, no silly offers please, serious enquiries only.

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.
