1961 split screen double sided double door panel van (coffee bus)

1961 vw split screen coffee van restored and ready to go Price: £55000

This sale does not include the company name so the van will be un-branded

This is Tallulah, a 1961 vw left hand drive split screen double sided double door panel van in vw light grey. Imported from California in early 2015 and fully restored/custom fitted out for the sale of specialty coffee with everything you need to start trading immediately.

Left completely stock she has a 1600 single port with 46k unconfirmed miles. She has had the following work carried out and a lot of this was featured in the volks world Camper & Bus magazine.

The vehicle was stripped to shell, with all metal work repairs using minimal part panels to retain as much original metal as possible.
Lower nose repair
Cab floor replaced
Outer sill and partial outer sill
Rear wheel arches were re-instated
battery tray
cargo door repairs on bottom of 3
cab doors localised repairs
retro fitted side windows removed and returned to original panel van
Replacement genuine tail gate
Rear lights returned to standard
All running gear removed for fitting to rotisserie, underside cleaned, treated and repainted prior to reassembly.

Door cards up upholstered

Seagrass cab floor and under bench carpet with lining

full length roof rack included

New brakes
New bearings
New shocks
Electrics refurbished
Rubber seals replaced
New Autocraft retractable towbar fitted
correct 15” rims fitted
New original spec tyres
1600cc single port engine fitted with new ancillaries (carb and exhaust)

Vehicle fully insulated and lined

Recycled vintage apple crate and pallet cabinet work

Mazzer Super Jolly electronic grinder (as new)

All milk pitchers/utensils/scales
Instant hot tap 240v
High end smart Inverter / charger installed
3x leisure batteries installed
Sink with cold tap
70l fresh water tank and water system
Usb chargers
Battery monitor

16 / 13amp power connection
LED lighting
on board Gas supply
3x marine Compressor Fridges (1 pull out drawer)
cash drawer installed

2kva Hyundai inverter generator with only 25 hours

Side ladders

2 external counters and cover as seen in photos (1 small & 1 large) which will be unbranded.

This has been used to start my successful coffee business that I am now looking to move to a permanent premise, hence being unbranded as the name will remain with me.

The van is a real head turner and as a result gets invited to events a regular coffee van would not.

I attend regular weddings, festivals, farmers markets, private corporate events and also have a spot on the prom on the South coast of Sussex.

She is completely self-sufficient running on dual fuel and for larger events has the capacity to be connected to a power source.

Currently in need of nothing other than a new business name and someone to who wants a new challenge or to add a unique coffee bus and investment to their fleet.

100s of pics available on request or by viewing my business social media and website thecoffeecamp.com Instagram & Facebook

Viewing obviously welcome by appointment only, or you are more than welcome to pop over to see the van on a day I'm trading at the Horsham farmers market (Thursday & Saturday) to see her in action.

Any inspection welcome

I would also consider stripping her out and selling as a straight panel van so please ask if interested.
