Uk RHD 1957 pitt-moto

Post by starbug1 »

Thinking of selling my .... uk right hand drive 1957 Heg425, Uk's oldest surviving CAMPER. Pitt moto (before peter pitt met mr cantabury). It has never been welded and is solid. All standard, 1200 6v, semaphores, working heaters from the control, fuel reserve lever, manual choke, original working blue star radio & Loads of amazing history. It has been displayed in the wolfsburg museum back in '88.
Not sure if i'm allowed to start a post with out a price...
4 owners from new, Pile of history inc a few old mags it was featured in.
HEG425 lived in a heated vw training center for a lot of its life, all Mot's back to 1985 (when i believe it was first put on the road after many years of sitting in the training center )
This has got to be a piece of vw history as Peter Pitt is the godfather of vw campers!

******UPDATE*****
This is going to be advertised for sale soon on a few sites... It has just had (nearly complete) lower half and roof painted in cellulose just to freshen it up... center half is still in its original cellulose paint!
I will take £28k, no offers at this stage. I will be putting it up elsewhere @ £30k once complete.
Here to sell... You will not find another like this one!
