1978 Volkswagen Bay Window Transporter/Camper

Interesting history; imported from the Lebanon in 2019; new drivers door and windscreen repair section; recent engine overhaul; Touareg seats; perfect for budget lockdown holidays

The owner of this 1978 tin-top bought it from a relative in the Lebanon where we believe it had lived all of its life. Before it was put on the boat, it had a new driver's door and a lower screen section fitted and subsequent paintwork.

Since arrival in the UK in March 2019, it has been UK registered VRL 887S and the vendor has set about fitting an interior to suit his family needs.

He fitted a set of front and rear seats from a Touareg which are trimmed in cream leather. The rear seats push forwards on runners and fold flat to form a double bed. He got round to installing some camping comforts such as a fridge unit, but not hooking them up so there is some detail work to complete.

The engine was also puported to have been overhauled before it arrived in the UK and it certainly runs and drives, with all gears selecting. There are a few areas that could be tidied up and this is reflected in the modest catalogue estimate.

The paperwork consists of a current V5C, Historic VW club dating letter and a photocopy of the Lebanese registration document.

This sound old bus must have a thousand stories to tell...if only it could talk.
