Changed my mind!!! Has to go.

1968 UK RHD Ready to go. MOT until March 2018.

I may live to regret this but I'm thinking of selling my early bay. I only picked her up in May and have spent time stripping the interior and getting her ready for a full respray. The interior wasn't original and wasn't suitable for children to sit on so it had to come out anyway. Selling as I'm expanding my business and I don't have the cash to do her justice. Here's the details -

1968 RHD Devon Torvette. Built in '67 and originally Neptune Blue. The previous owner undercoated the rear panels to preserve her as at some point she had a terrible respray in green.

I drove her 325 miles back to London when I collected her without a single issue. Just had a full service with a great VW specialist. Brakes were completely overhauled and are now great. No pulling to the side when braking at all. Starts on the button and has been tuned, new spark plugs, oil etc and is ready to go.

She has had a lot of welding over the last 49 years. Who ever has had her in the past has just done the necessary work to keep her going. She needs some love and attention. She turns 50 in December and has an MOT until March 2018. Tax exempt.

The pop top was removed at some point and a fold back rag top fitted. This is still in great condition as fitted a couple of years ago by the previous owner.

Sections on the guttering need attention as for some reason the toos of them have been slightly cut....no idea why?

She's a great bus and I'm gutted as I've always wanted one but it's just the wrong time for me unfortunately.

I have the original blue door cards and cab rubber floor mats too. They are a bit worn but do the job. Original wheels with VW hubs.
