1978 VW Camper

This RHD walk-through Devon conversion VW Camper covered in the region of 8000 miles in 2014 and since we sold the VW to one of our regular customers in South Wales the vehicle has covered further, reliable, faultless miles. GCP 977S has had over £16000 of expenditure since 2008 with over £12000 of this spent since 2010. As a result this VW is a strong, robust example that has proven reliability and has been used for long distance touring over the past few years. The VW has been taken to various parts of the UK and Ireland and is ideal for weekend and holiday use. The VW has taken part in the Eireball Run (Charity Type 2 event touring Ireland) three times and has been to Classic LeMans without missing a beat.

In 2010 a rolling restoration began, firstly with some interior work, new heater pipes and a full brake re-commissioning to include new front discs and pads, rear drums and new brake shoes. In 2011 a 1600 single port engine was fitted, some wiring work carried out and the starter motor rebuilt. In 2012 the VW had new ball joints, axle seals, wheel bearings and the pop top roof replaced with another Devon original unit. The rear seat cushions were replaced with more supportive foam & reupholstered in co-ordinating fabrics top & bottom, the front seats re-covered and the roof hammock units refurbished & refitted.  In 2013 the body was stripped down and rebuilt with various new panels and rubbers all replaced. All receipts for the above work are with the Camper and from previous MOT's with the vehicle we can confirm over 20,000 miles have been covered since 2008.

The VW boasts many nice upgrades and features such as Halogen headlights, immobiliser, leisure battery, rear full seat belts, Eberspacher heater unit, short shift gear change, detachable roof rack, ring gas cooking unit with grill, sink and tap and full width rock and roll bed.

GCP 977S has a lovely patina and has a much loved feel to it. Various event stickers are visible on the glass and the inside has a homely feel with cushions and personal touches. It is clear the last owner has love this VW and it has been part of the family. A fortune has been spent making sure it's reliable and capable of providing lots of good memories and the recent expenditure should enhance the desirability of this particularly example. If looking for a usable, clean and smart Camper that can be taken away immediately and doesn't require any work, this is an ideal choice.
