I've toyed with selling for the past couple of years but have now finally come to terms with it and am ready to move on. Time for a change as the bus no longer gets the use it deserves. Kept in a garage since I took ownership in 2004, lots of happy memories from a very reliable van.

Purchased in Colorado in Feb 2004 while I was working in the USA and imported by myself to the UK in August 2004.
Last MOT'd and serviced in October 2018, MOT due October '19. All major work done by Coast VW in South Molton

Engine:
1600 twin port engine with dual Kadron Carbs.
Flamethrower coil, leads and converted to electronic ignition.
Chrome Generator stand, degree marked pulley, Empi billet oil filler & cap.
Engine bay has fire extinguisher fitted.

Suspension/Steering:
Front Suspension - CB Performance Puma adjustable, narrowed beam, 'new' drop spindles (replacements from Type 2 Detectives fitted in October 2017), Spax Shocks, dual circuit brake conversion with CSP front disc brakes (fitted May 2010).

Rear Suspension - Creative Engineering IRS kit with Creative adjustable spring plates, Spax shocks, 68 bay hubs (all powder coated) and drive shafts fitted to AH code gearbox (all work done March 2011).

Creative Engineering rack and pinion steering rack (fitted June 2010).

Wheels - SSP Sprintstars in near perfect condition.

Interior:
Re-trimmed with white TMI panels (front, side, rear doors and rear panels), front seats re-trimmed in White TMI seat covers.
Wood paneling roof.
Full width rock n roll bed with bespoke Mexican blanket seat covers.
Six factory fitted popout windows.
Three home made cupboards across bulkhead give plenty of storage.
Leisure battery fitted in engine bay, powers interior light and stereo system.

Bodywork:
VERY solid chassis underneath with no problem areas.

The bottoms of the cargo doors and cab floor need some work as does the left hand sill, nothing structural or major.
Both front wheel arches also have slight rust issues, again body work only, not structural and not an MOT issue.
The paint work is not perfect and there are a few scratches & blemishes but I like it that way!

Im in Somerset, about 10 miles east of Taunton - Asking price of £21,000

Happy to answer any questions and/or supply more photos.

Thanks for looking!
Steve
