1967 Split Screen for sale

Post by Surecare » Mon Jul 01, 2019 9:02 pm

1967 Volkswagen split screen camper van
Right hand drive and first registered in the UK
3 owners from new (the original owner owned the bus for 39 years!)
90000 miles from new


Finished in Sea Blue over Pearl White
The engine is the original 1500 engine as is the gearbox and reduction boxes
This vehicle benefits from the factory option M183 which is a walk through cab which is very rare indeed. This is a 1 key van – with the original key!

I believe this was one of the last 200 split screen buses ever built at Wolfsburg and it may be the newest surviving example!

On arrival in the UK it was converted to a Torvette Camper by JP White of Sidmouth and the vehicle still has this complete conversion including the Easicool fridge, Gas hob and Formica table.
The vehicle underwent a bare metal respray and minimal bodywork refurbishment by Dave Catchpole and his team at West Coast VW (formerly VW Classics) in 2011 and has been owned by me through and since these works . The vehicle was incredibly sound so minimal bodywork was required apart from replacement of the roof and there is a full photographic history of this work. The headlining was replaced as part of these works and a hobby battery installed together with an overhaul of the electrics.
The engine was rebuilt by Laurie Pettit of Berwickshire – the guru of VW engines! The brake system was renewed and steering overhauled. The reduction box bearing have been renewed and the gearbox seals renewed – no work was needed on the gearbox.
I have covered 12000 miles in her since the refurbishment
The Torvette interior was refurbished and refitted even the foam was reused (but the covers were renewed!) The trim panels were renewed but the original panels have been retained.
This vehicle was (and is) my passion . It has been restored to the exact factory specification with the exception of adding Seeblau over the original Pearlweise , fitting electronic points to the distributor and fitting laminated glass to the front windows. I honestly believe this is the finest original example of the Split Screen camper available.
All work is fully documented and there is a file of receipts totalling over £20,000
Reason for sale?
We have driven less than 500 miles in 2 years ! Vanessa(her name) is not to be stored but to be used. I want her to go to a good home where her adventures can continue !
Price £55,000 Not cheap but the price reflects to condition and originality.
If you are interested please contact me.
We are near Reigate in Surrey (near Gatwick Airport)
