Classic Car Auctions says:

An attractive right-hand drive, twin-slider T2 Camper Van. We are told this Camper, a full Devon conversion is fitted with twin sliding doors with a full camper conversion which is a rare combination.

Supplied with an MoT certificate valid until March 2017, the vendor believes this VW Camper to be mechanically very, very good, an opinion confirmed by the team at Voodoo Works VWs, experts in these vehicles. Externally this Camper is excellent, having been fully rebuilt in 2007 with the paintwork refreshed in 2014, and recently enjoyed taking pride of place on the club stand at the Classic Car Show. Finished in White over Golden Yellow, it's as bright as a Free Range Egg.

Owned by the current vendor for some 8 years, he has made a point of putting it into storage each Winter to ensure that it remains snug and dry. There are folders full of history relating to the car including receipts for work carried out, regular maintenance and photos of the original conversion.
Described as a very practical classic and definitely 'cool', this cracking little VW has been to Cornwall and back many times and has proved completely reliable.
