1965 VW Splitscreen----SOLD----

Post by Archie3781 »

Californian bus originally, imported by previous owner, currently Mot'd and taxed and insured.

Running a 1641cc twin carb on a freeway flyer box.
Narrowed 4" front beam with adjuster on lowered shocks.
New steering parts throughout, steering box guard.
New dual circuit brakes, pipes etc with a VW JIM SERVO.
Drum brakes with all new parts throughout, stops very well.
New wiring at front end.
Refurbed speedo calibrated to steels.
Engine rebuilt, changed to 34 twin webers, no end float, no leaks, runs brilliant, fuel gauge works, engine temp works, oil pressure works, 3 gauges fitted in airbox.
Bosch OG dash radio, works but only used as a dash filler, new modem stereo fitted under dash.
Front seats upholstered in black vinyl.1/3&2/3.
Rear 3/4 Rock n roll bed.
No interior other than rear engine cushion and R N R BED Cushions.
All windows pop out, front safaris, and rear safari, all have new rubber.
Some insulation and sound proofing throughout.
New engine lid, and rear apron.
Loads and loads of spares available at extra cost.

This is my dream bus, and I've poured thousands into it, no expense spared getting it sorted, the engine runs sweet, the steerings good too, really a very solid bus that just needs either painting or running as is.

Gutted to have to sell it, but other projects taking priority.

Looking for OIRO £20k, no time wasters please, may swap for other Classic aircooled plus cash.

Feel free to ask any questions, 100's of pics available.

Hello,
May I contact you because I would be interested in selling your combi Split.
I am already the possessor of a magnificent Oval Beetle 1954.
My question would be whether you would be willing to make an exchange your Combi Split against my Ovale 1954 or are you resistant to this kind of proposal ?
I can provide you some pictures if you are really interested .
Thank you for your reply...
Cordially.

Hi Archie3781,
As seen my various searches on sites like " BugBus " or "The Samba " I could sell my Oval 54 between £ 16,000 and £ 18,000.
Unfortunately I do not send photos to the site. If you give me your email address, I can provide you some pictures and a description of my Oval 54 .
I am willing to put more cash to my Oval if you are really interested.

Cordially.
