My 1971 Brazillian 15 window ‘Sofia’. I have been her custodian for the past 9 years when she was imported to the UK from Peru. Over the past 3 years she has gone through a major refurbishment to include a full bare-metal respray and a new engine, gearbox, brakes, steering box to name a few. In total I have receipts for over £25k.

The restoration has been done to allow her to be driven safely in modern traffic without being obviously upgraded. I have been using her as my daily driver for the passed 2 months and she hasn’t missed a beat. Prior to this she has completed a 6-month European tour travelling from the UK to Malta and back! Sofia is truly a well tested and reliable campervan which has been respectfully upgraded so as not appear different, but has all the features you would want to confidently travel over an extended period.

Mileage: 14500 (Reset on refit)

I will be very sad to see her go, however I am due to relocate overseas where she is unlikely to get sufficient use and would rather pass her to the next custodian to enjoy.

Based in Lavenham, Suffolk. (Oxfordshire during March 19)

Any questions, please feel free to drop me a line on terry_musgrove@hotmail.com

She is summer camping ready!!

Just installed a Petronix electronic ignition. No more troublesome points and condensors, simply fit and forget.

Also have available my Kyham motor dome awning and 3 bow Westfalia style roof rack (optional extras)
