This very original Westfalia was imported into the UK by us around 6 years ago and since then been enjoyed by a local family. Now for sale it still in really nice condition and ready for new owners.
The specification includes:
Original fuel injected 2.0 engine and correct high ratio gearbox. Berlin interior with Poptop roof – 2 double beds. Many, rare, original features remain such as the table, swivel passenger seat, the correct fabric and even much of the trim.
This bus runs and drives really well and will be sold with a new MOT.
1968 VW Micro-bus with deluxe package just imported from California. Great colour combo – Lotus white and Indian red interior. UK registered FMA843F (number plates included) Runs and can be driven on our private road but will need to be trailered away as it has poor brakes. Nice 1600cc twin port engine fitted Very dry & sound with nice outer panels and great door gaps. Chassis, sills, outriggers & cross-members are excellent. Some work needed on rear corners and cab floors but all easy stuff.

CLASSIC FULL RESTORATIONS
Nothing gives us greater pleasure than that call from a truly passionate VW Camper lover who has got their hands on a classic van in a terrible state. 'Is it even possible?' they say as they gaze at their rusty heap. It usually is and whilst we never make promises we can't keep, knowing from years of experience just what we are capable of is very satisfying.
For the client of course it is the beginning of a wonderful journey which we share enjoyably as their car develops from a lost cause into something even better than the original version. With modern adjustments, we can really make not just dreams come true, but deliver well beyond original expectations.

WE ONLY DO A PROPER JOB
We have our own in-house body shop and full-time staff to run it. It’s exclusively for classic car restoration, we don’t do blow-overs or knock dents out of Taxi’s. We just restore classic cars to a very high standard. We always remove all the windows, doors, bumpers etc and use high quality paints and materials.
The main problem with all of these 30 odd year old vehicles is rust. There are 2 main types that affect the longevity of any paint job: There is real bad stuff that perforates the metal leaving holes in the painted surface. The only way to remove it is to cut it out and weld in fresh steel. Great care must be taken to not store up more problems for later and a skilled welder will use a butt welding process that leaves the finished surface as smooth as possible, minimising the use of filler to finish off the surface.
And the (apparently) not so bad stuff that sits on top of the metal and bubbles up through the surface. This is the rust that keeps coming back. Body-shops try sanding it off, grinding through it, painting chemicals over it or just hoping it will go away. It rarely does no matter how hard one tries. We have recently invested in a brand new media blasting machine from the market leade [...]
HAPPY CAMPER HUB
We moved to our current location near Banbury in April 2011. We operate from 8000 sq ft of workshops and the heart of that is our large open space Main Workshop.
Our equipment is state of the art and this is where we do most of our repair and restoration work, conduct MOT’s and safety inspections. We also offer complex electrical work and reassuring preparation for those setting off on a camper adventure.
Most people who visit us are stunned how spotless we keep all our working areas. It is a core discipline that we believe sets us apart. We just find that keeping everything organised and clean, makes it easier for us to do an incredible job for you.
