1965 EZ camper, solid, genuine. £20000 ono

Relisted due to this forum going down.
Totally genuine price - This bus is really solid and not mucked about with, many would say it is very cheap for what it is but I just need to sell him and move on.
For sale due to illness our much loved Rare Walkthrough 1965 EZ Camper. Original German made splitscreen imported to the UK from Orange County, California in 2011, he’s been in our ownership since 2012, always garaged when not in use. We had him professional restored by Ruby Restorations and registered him in the UK ourselves. He’s done less than four thousand miles since then, illustrating why he has to go- chronic illness has stopped us using him.

As can be seen in the photo he is the 546 th camper made be EZ and still has the original airstream aluminium opening windows with all bar one still having the metal fly screens fitted. He also has the original power inlet although this is not connected. Rock and roll bed of course.
We’ve tried not to muck about with him too much so he’s stock height, with his reduction boxes - gets up Porlock Hill in Devon no problem- running a single port engine. (This one only put in this summer!) He’s running J tubes off the engine but he’ll come with his heat exchangers, original VW, so you’ll be able to reconnect his heating which was working well with his previous engine. The only real update on him is the installation of electronic ignition.

When we had him restored all the outriggers were replaced as was the load bay floor, which was only done because we didn’t want to patch it. He’s completely straight and sound and the chassis was coated in Por 15. The only issue with the chassis is a dent on a cross beam which was caused when he was being offloaded from the shipping container, this has no impact on the handling or safety of the vehicle which is why it has not been replaced. He’s also had a new starter this year, so starts and runs on the button.

He’s got his original interior, a little tired as are the front seats, a job I was going to be doing this winter, but as I said earlier further illness has sadly curtailed those plans. The only real work done on the interior was sound proofing with Dynamat and some funky door cards in the cab.

The only issue with him I can think of is for some reason the passenger door lock has decided to stick! All the locks have been renovated so, apart from the ignition they all use the same key, not sure why it’s playing up I’ll try and investigate if I have a chance. He also comes with a host of spares including, in pieces, a 1600 twin port super beetle engine and a full set of door seals. A great bus, love him to bits but because of the health issues just not getting used. He can be happily used as he is or the new owner can keep personalising him. MOT and tax exempt due to his age but he does have an Mot certificate dated end June 2018 as I preferred to be safe than sorry. More photographs available.

Nice bug but I’m going to stop having my garaging once Cyril goes and would only have onstreet parking - not suitable for valuable vehicles.
