This is very rare 1957 rust free campervan with semaphoreindicators. huge amount of work and money has already been spent on bringingthis classic back to its former glory. This is fantastic project for someone totake on, as most of the difficult work has been done, and it is now case ofchoosing the colour and spec to get her completed. BODYWORKThe bus was originally found in the Northern Cape (desert), inS Africa, and was initially media blasted to assess any repairs required. Anyrust that was present was cut out and replaced with Gerson panels. All bodyworkwas then prepped for paint which is almost complete. have spent huge amounton this split and as can be seen from the pictures it is 100% rust free busand nearly ready for paint and re-assembly. MECHANICSUp front it has lowered adjustable front beam fitted witha disk brake conversion, and at the rear it has had straight axle conversionwith reconditioned beetle gearbox and adjustable spring plates. The brakingsystem is duel circuit system and the whole system is new including all thebrake lines. The bus doesn’t come with an engine. PARTSIt comes with parts not yet fitted (as indicated in thepictures), including some windows, parcel shelf, window runners etc. Pleasenote the bumpers are fibre glass, which were given to me, but my intention wasto source some originals. There will be various parts needed to finish thissplit. PAPERWORKI have all the import papers for the bus and all taxes havebeen paid. also applied to get letter from the Historic Volkswagen Club,which now have, and this confirms the date of the bus, which is required toget it UK DVLA registered. The bus is of course MoT exempt. After the body work was finished, imported the camper tothe UK to have the rest of the work completed here. However, it has since beenstored in my garage and I’ve come to the realisation that I’m just not going tohave the time to finish it. Reality is have demanding job and in theprocess of renovating house.This is rare split and most of the expensive work has beencarried out and will make great project for the next owner to finish off totheir specification. will be sorry to see her go.
