EXTERIOR
The unmodified, unspoilt and preserved nature of this delightful Beetle 1300 is truly wonderful and fondly reminiscent of a far simpler motoring age.  Finished in Volkswagen Kasan Red/Kasanrot, (Code L30B), the vibrant finish to the paintwork is superb with only very light imperfections consisting of touched in marks and thin paint on bonnet edges from years of overzealous polishing.  All utterly insignificant.  The factory panels are damage free and uniformly even and the doors shut with a reassuring thud.  The underside is excellent and free from excess applied underseal.  Originality seekers will delight at the original VW etched glass badges and inner door shut stickers.  Even the octane sticker to the inside of the petrol flap remains fitted!  All chrome bumpers and trim pieces are intact and boast a brilliant shine.  A delightfully humble and unmolested example of a motoring icon.

INTERIOR
The original black leatherette interior is spotless with all seats and matching door cards fully intact and remarkably free from wear.  The factory fitted padded steering wheel with Wolfsburg crest is pristine, as is all other fully functioning controls and switchgear, including the Radiomobile push-button stereo.  The factory sticker to the inner glovebox lid remains and the headlining is clean, fully intact and displays only very light discolouration around the rear seams.  The front luggage compartment displays factory plates and stickers and houses the original spare wheel still feeding the pneumatic washer system, a system sadly often removed in favour of an electric washer pump.  Ten years ago, the previous long-term owner found a Two Shilling coin underneath the carpet dated near the cars production and sentiment/superstition has led him to insist it remained there when he sold the car!

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The matching numbers standard air-cooled rear mounted engine produces 52bhp from its 1285cc displacement enabling a top speed of 78mph with the unmistakable Beetle engine note delightfully pronounced but completely unobtrusive.  The engine bay is amazingly clean, exactly as Volkswagen intended and incredibly the original, yet now arguably primitive, Volkswagen diagnostics plug remains fitted!   The fully synchronized 4-speed gearbox works perfectly offering light and precise gear changes.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original pressed steel wheels are dressed in immaculate chrome half wheel covers and shod in branded 155 R15 tyres with excellent tread remaining.  Dual circuit drums front and rear operate freely, offering modest yet perfectly adequate stopping power when compared to modern vehicles, exactly as they were made!

HISTORY FILE
Registered new on the 13th October 1972, the supplying Volkswagen Main Dealer was Walter Scott Ltd of Pavillion Road, London.  This incredible Beetle 1300 has covered a genuine warranted 53,459 miles from new with just four former keepers.  Only very rarely does a classic car come with such an amazing history file, which in this instance begins with the original service booklet containing the supplying dealer stamp plus a further 39 stamped entries from 1972 to 2017!  Each entry records the date and mileage to fully verify the authenticity and illustrate the cars continual enjoyment throughout the last 46 years.  Furthermore, a huge history folder is beautifully presented with many previous MOT certificates and specialist invoices for service and maintenance work, including a rebuild of the original Solex carburettor in 2016.  A feature in Classsic Car Weekly dated March 2008 is full of glowing praise when it was advertised for sale at £5,995.  All original handbooks, guides, warranty book and dealership literature have been kept along with two sets of keys and an original sales brochure.  Even the VW Diagnosis Punch Card Booklet with the original build sticker is present!

A car that has thankfully evaded the modifiers, neglectful owners and scrappage schemes to now remain one of the best unmolested examples available.  Appealing to the avid collector wanting a very special car with history file to match.

EXTERIOR
This UK Volkswagen T2 looks simply divine finished in Lotus White over Powder Blue and displays a magnificent shine wowing onlookers.  All chrome enhancements are mirror reflective and new rubbers throughout demonstrate a no expense spared mentality to this mammoth full time 16 week build.  Bills totalling thousands spent with specialists will assure the structural integrity of this example and finishing touches extending to a new Paul Smith style multi-coloured pop-top and powder coated components will please exhibitionists.  The engine bay is spotlessly clean as is the underside but not detailed due to the owners desire to use for holiday outings and shows.  An adorable Dormobile!

INTERIOR
To witness the care and devotion dedicated to the interior of this spacious motor caravan is a pleasure.  The original seating is beautifully retrimmed in white leatherette vinyl with pale blue piping which even extends to the spare wheel cover!  The cockpit is graced with expensive billet aluminium MCJ products and fresh carpeting, door cards and facia completes the well-executed driver area.  Retro features such as the bamboo under dash shelf and Pool ball gear knob reveal the detail.  Stepping into the rear living/sleeping area is a visual delight thanks to a traditional design with a modern twist.  Blue glass mosaic tiling on work tops and brilliant white high gloss units complement the chequer vinyl flooring and the original Dormobile table has a Split Screen camper picture inlay.  Modern comforts such as LED downlighters, a 19-inch LCD TV, beer chiller and mains hook up to power electrical devices will please those wanting the full camping experience, the equipment has not been tested.  Matching blue utensils are also provided.  Fabulously retro!

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The four cylinder flat four 1641cc air cooled engine has been rebuilt by Elite VW Engines.  Unleaded barrels and heads with new pistons, main bearings, seals and gaskets throughout is fed by Empi 34mm twin carburettors allowing modern day use.  As with the rest of the vehicle, visually pleasing detail such as the Scat chrome rocker covers and a ceramic coated single outlet exhaust reveal the attention to detail.  The fully synchronized 4-speed gearbox with double joint half axle shafts at the rear operates correctly.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Chrome 15” Empi powder coated wheels have locking wheel nuts and 195/50 R15 tyres with excellent tread.  Being a Crossover ‘Late 72 Bay’ disc brakes up front, all renewed, and drums at rear do an effective job of stopping the camper.

HISTORY FILE
Registered on the 9th March 1972 this UK RHD specification Type 2 was converted to a camper by Dormobile when new and enjoyed in this capacity since.  In 2010 the owner embarked on an incredible journey to produce, at vast expense, a show stopping but useable motor caravan.  Bills in the history file amounting to tens of thousands will absolutely reassure the next custodian that no area escaped scrutiny and refurbishment.  Such was the high standard of finish that on the vehicles first outing after the long restoration a second place award at Blenheim Palace Show was won.  Also included in the history file is a wonderful four page feature in VW Camper & Commercial Magazine.  A full complement of keys are present.
