Classic Car Auctions says:

A truly exceptional " Splitty"...
After being imported from the States, this fantastic 'Splitty' has been with its current owner for 10 years and during that time, the whole vehicle has been completely re-furbished to a very high standard.
Finished in its original livery of Turquoise and White, the paintwork and preparation itself cost in excess of £4,000. At this point, it was fitted with front and side Safari windows, new window seals and the vehicle was undersealed. The front cab area was left as original, with seats retrimmed and new door cards, however the rest of the interior is bespoke with a bed and seating, new headlining, new floor and all new panels.

It has been fitted with a Webasto Night Heater system and updated with a full new wiring harness, 240/12V hook- up, and for entertainment, a drop down DVD player and quality sound system all enhanced by new LED 'mood lighting'. The interior now looks fabulous and a great place to 'chill'. 
Last but not least, the mechanical side has not been left untouched and now sports a brand new engine and clutch along with lowered suspension and a front disk brake conversion. Finally, the 'Splitty' was treated to a new set of polished 'Empi' alloy wheels making this bus an outstanding buy for someone who simply wants to jump in and drive a turn-key example.
