VW T25 Caravelle GL 2.1 camper       SOLD

£3500 ono

Hi there and welcome to the auction of my father in laws VW T25 caravelle GL which he has converted into a camper van. 

This had a brand new mot on it last week, passing first time with just 3 advisories, an area of damage to the windscreen (stone chip) and some corrosion to the n/s and o/s rear corners. 

This is the highly desirable 2.1 dj engine with a manual 5 speed gear box. Mechanically this van is awesome and starts on the button every time of asking. We have had little to do to it, apart from the usual perishable items and a brand new starter motor a few months back. 
There is a definite knack for driving the 5 speed and this one is no exception, but once used to it it is fine, but is occasionally tricky to get into reverse gear but it will go in once you know where it is!

On the inside it has been converted to a 2 berth campervan,  having side storage units and a rock and roll bed. There are cushions with it which do the job but they are not for this bed. It has a 12v leisure battery fitted too. There is no sink or hob in there. 

Up front it has the factory captains seats and a modern stereo fitted too. 

The worst part of the van sadly is the bodywork as you can see. It has started to go in the seams at the rear arches and the lower b pillars, along with a few other areas coupled with the odd ding and dent. Hopefully you can see this in the pictures. It is by no means a rotter, but it will need attention in the future. 

Please feel free to come on round to have a view and take her out for a spin, it really does get down the road lovely. 

It is at my workshops, you can call and text me on 07412 715189 and I will try and answer your questions. 
Although I run a vw conversion business I must stress this is a private sale of my father in laws camper. We have set a very small but realistic reserve to take into account the body work. 

Payment is cash on collection or bank transfer,  but all funds must be cleared before vehicle leaves us.

VW T25 Bilbo pop top camper for sale     SOLD

Price to be negotiated.

We have recently acquired this rather sad looking T25 camper from its previous owner who was moving out of the country and so sold it on to us.  It looks a little beaten up in places, and it actually is!, but this will of course all be sorted out by us here at vwbusbits.  

It is the highly desirable 2.1 DJ petrol engine with the 5 speed gear box.  The engine has just been serviced by the guys at Beetle Magic and has also had a new fuel pump, fuel filter and well as a host of other mechanical work carried out within the last 18 months.

This has a brand new MOT on it as of 30 September 2016 and needed very little to get through.  This will have all of its dents, dings, rust and rot cut out and replaced with lovely new metal work and then finished in its original paint colour.  It is actually really solid underneath in all the right places, the rear swing arms and mounts are sound as is the rest of the chassis work.

The interior will be fitted with a brand new full width rusty lee rock and roll bed and upholstered in a complimenting material and colour.  Other than that were not sure what else we are going to be doing with it.

Once its all finished it will be going up for sale, but as usual, this camper can be bought from us at any stage of this process, the earlier it is bought the less it will cost you so please get in touch if you would like to know any more.

VW T25 1983 Factory window van for sale        SOLD

£4000 ono


We have a factory caravelle currently in stock which we have re-commissioned after it ran out of mot in July 2015. This was a customers van who has just done a px deal with us for another finished T25 we had in.

It's an early A reg, 1.9 water cooled 4 speed.

We have done a lot of body work on this van, repaired both rear arches, front deformation panel and some inner sill work.  This van came to us hand painted so we have decided to save on the overall cost of the project and we have newly hand painted it in a gorgeous bright red body with gloss white roof.

Interior wise it is being sold as a blank canvas, it will be insulated, ply lined and carpet trimmed throughout with a new floor, but that will be it.  Obviously the new owner can have us build them a custom interior if they so desire, that will be left up to them.

It will come with a new 12 month MOT on purchase.

Any interest in it and for more information please just get in touch and we can have a chat and a brew if you pop on by.
