1965 VW Split Screen Camper Van – German Built & Factory Right Hand Drive. Pop Top - Nut & Bolt Restoration Finished Spring 2018 – Less than 10 miles since restoration. The absolute ultimate VW Split Screen Camper Van! Restored professionally and tastefully to the highest possible standard and specification here at UK Sports Cars. This is the one to have from all perspectives including enjoyability, reliability, practicality, versatility and most definitely, investment! The specification on this bus has been very carefully selected by us having followed the market trends throughout the years to ensure that this bus holds its value for future years to come. To start with, this is a 100% Genuine German built and factory supplied Right Hand Drive bus delivered to the UK in 1965. Every single matching number and original identification plate is present. Even the original paint sticker on the bulkhead is still intact! This is absolutely crucial stuff when buying a bus. Don’t be caught out by the many clones and non-genuine articles that are out there. Before restoration began, this was without a doubt the most solid UK Right Hand Drive bus we have ever seen, almost as though the bus had been time warped from the 1960’s. The previous owner was a long time employee of a very well established split screen parts supplier who we have used for many years, so it was expected that the bus would be a good one from the start. This bus formed the perfect basis for restoration, requiring no welding so we stripped back the entire shell and fully repainted it in year correct and all time favourite original Volkswagen colours, Titian Red & Beige Grey. The paintwork has been prepared to a glass like shine throughout and looks stunning from every angle. At the same time we decided to fit a vertically elevating pop-top roof conversion, which is one of the most popular conversions / upgrades you can do to a split screen, making for additional space inside and furthermore adding more to the iconic VW Camper fashion statement. The vertical pop top roof is an incredible product featuring gas struts for ease of up and down operation, a high quality fabric canvas with zip opening plastic windows all round to let added light in, grab handles throughout and an insulated roof lining to finish off the inside. Mechanics & Electrics Brand new 12V wiring loom installed with all electrics working in superb order. Brand new 1641cc engine with all brand spanking new ancillaries also! NO corners cut. The engine has covered no more than 5 test miles since the vehicle has been finished. The engine bay is pristine and virtually every single item is brand new! This is the ultimate engine for any Split Screen bus in our opinion, providing good power and reliability all whilst retaining the original style setup unlike so many buses that are destroyed by nauseating likes of Subaru or diesel engine conversions.
