HISTORY FILE
Registered new on the 19th November 1992 by Volkswagen Main Dealer, Page Motors Limited of Bournemouth, the car has had just two former keepers from new, two of which being Mother and Son respectively. Mr Morris purchased the car new and owned it for three years at which point he was convinced by the pioneering newcomers to the UK motoring market, Daewoo, to whom the Polo was part exchanged for one of their brand-new models. Mrs Short subsequently purchased the car directly from the Daewoo Car Centre as a used vehicle at which point the car had covered just 15,955 miles. She owned the car for 25 years until in January 2020 the difficult decision was made to cease driving on health grounds, at which point the car was transferred to her son, Mr Nick Short.

The original service booklet contains a remarkable 26 stamped entries, incredible for such a low mileage car and an insight to the care this example has enjoyed with less than 50 miles covered since the most recent service. All handbooks, manuals and Daewoo dealership point of sale literature is included in the document wallet and there are two Volkswagen keys. Completing the history file is an original Polo range sales brochure. Personal inspection and drive of this example will not fail to impress for what is a rare surviving and cherished example of the iconic Polo ‘Breadvan’ design.

The order form and deposit receipts in the history file confirm the purchase price of £7,430 with delivery specified at 7:00am on the 1st August 1986, the day the all important new ‘D’ registration came out. The previous owner even managed to track down the salesman who sold the car to Mrs Waby who recalled there being a dealership employee BBQ on the night of the 31st July whereby at midnight the sales team left the showroom to deliver many new cars, including this example, to owners driveways in order that they would wake up to a brand new ‘D’ plate car! The car is registered with four owners however in fact the first two were Mrs Waby who mistakenly re-registered the car upon changing address. Used solely as a second weekend car and stored in a heated garage, Mrs Waby sold the car in 2014 after 28 years of ownership and there have been just two further owners. There is a neatly presented history file containing many VAG main dealer and specialist invoices as well as MOT certificates dating back to 1990 to further verify the low mileage. All handbooks, guides and point of sale literature remain in the dealership branded document wallet. Completing the history file is a workshop manual and a collection of period Scirocco sales brochures including a separate one for this Limited-Edition GTS model. A standard, low owner and low mileage Scirocco is a rare find indeed and the next fortunate keeper will benefit from 34 years of cherished ownership.

The factory fitted upgrade alloy wheels have never been refurbished with imperfections and aging to some areas. Matching high-load 195/70 R15C tyres replaced the originals in 2018 and have covered very few miles. The power assisted braking system features brand new discs and pads fitted all-round in April 2020 to install the highest confidence.

HISTORY FILE
This example was first registered on the 12th March 2001 by Hartwell Volkswagen in Cheshire. An invoice dated 26th February 2001 from Young Conversions Ltd confirms that this LWB T4 Transporter was converted from brand new to this full specification campervan. Young Conversions Ltd were founded in 1988 and remain in business today with further details of the company available here. The first owner, Mr Derek Hook, purchased the van brand new and subsequently paid a staggering £12,428.74 for the conversion as detailed on the invoice from Young Conversions Ltd which also lists the full specification. After ten years of ownership the campervan was passed to family member, Mr Paul Hook, and with just one other owner in-between the vehicle was purchased by Volkswagen collector, Mr Paul Willcock. Mr Willcock is very well known for his ongoing collection of prized show winning classic Volkswagen Beetles and Campervans and used this very vehicle for a European excursion.

The exceptionally low mileage of 16,036 miles is fully verified by every MOT certificate from the very first in 2004 and the full Volkswagen book pack and binder folder is complete with the service book. Absolutely all instructions, leaflets and brochures for the conversion have been kept along with a file of invoices and receipts including recent expenditure for tyres and a full genuine Volkswagen exhaust system. In April 2020 a documented full service, cambelt, injection pump belt, water pump and brake overhaul were completed. There are two sets of remote keys plus the original master key. The private registration number Y60 FLY is retained as a tongue-in-cheek gesture of the first owners belief, ‘why fly when you can camp?!’ Fast becoming highly collectable and very rare to find with such low mileage, this T4 Transporter is the perfect retro campervan.

A desirable sloping headlight model with amazing attention detail such as the 1960 only teardrop washer jet and quality mirror reflective chrome. A few tasteful improvements such as LED rear lights still housed in their snowflake rear lenses and front indicators mounted below the front bumper to maintain the oval smoothie look work great. A first for the new ‘61 Spec 40bhp model were Satin Blue running boards and these have been retained with a slightly lower stance achieved on Sway-A-Way front beam adjusters and the rear torsion bar turned down, easily reversed. Such is the amazing show appeal of this car it even has its own Instagram Page angus_the_beetle with 1,950 Followers and counting!

INTERIOR
Prepared to be wowed with an interior perfect in appearance and quality fitment throughout. Attention to detail will be missed by most with even the door opener and window winder positioned exactly when closed to mimic factory specification! Expensive Newton Commercial Beetle carpets are protected by rubber over mats and a quality Grey mohair headlining looks stunning. Originality seekers will note the obvious and new for ‘61 Spec cars, 90mph speedometer, but may miss the under bonnet factory card board liner, (protected by an overlaid replacement), hiding the original production number chalked in yellow underneath. A quality wooden Nardi Classic Steering Wheel with polished spokes and a discreet sound system has been installed. Very few classic cars meet the standards set by this remarkable example.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
With traceable history from new this is a rare matching numbers car with the factory four cylinder horizontally opposed rear air cooled engine of 1192cc still fitted. Producing 40bhp at 3900rpm, (up from the 36bhp of the earlier engine), it even retains the Solex downdraft carburettor 28 PICT with automatic choke to enable a top speed of 72mph. With a full rebuild, copious invoices and show winning appearance this engine performs and looks stunning. All engine tinware has been powder coated and everything is detailed. The fully synchronized 4-speed gearbox of single plate dry clutch type operates perfectly offering light and precise progression throughout the range.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Five pristine pressed steel wheels painted in original White L-87 and Gulf Blue L-390 with Gloss Black to the rear are shod in premium Continental Contact 165/80 R15 tyres all-round. The spare wheel houses a near impossible to source metal VW circular case complete with tools and a restored VW jack and handle painted in correct colours is present. Single circuit braking system with drums all-round offer modest stopping power.

HISTORY FILE
A spectacular history. Built in June 1960 as a RHD UK model with the new 40bhp engine, this is a matching numbers example. Purchased by Mr McKechney from the original owner in 1978 with sub 20,000 miles for his wife Margaret. She refused to drive the car due to poor rear visibility and it remained virtually unused but carefully garaged before selling the car to their son in 1991. He remained the custodian until 2015 meaning this prime VW was owned by the same family for 37 years! Enthusiast owned by three keepers since, one of which being classic car fanatic Mr Jamie Stephens, embarking on a meticulous and painstaking restoration investing 100’s of hours with invoices totalling thousands. Enjoying the show circuit with awards to prove the high standard and even having its own Instagam Page, (Click here: angus_the _beetle), this really is an exception to the normal offerings. Mr Stephens made the difficult decision to sell the car only to buy a lifelong dream classic, a Ford Escort Mk2 RS Mexico. Very cool, immaculate and wanting for nothing.
