Have you got any photos of your caddy? I also have a mk1 caddy that I restored nearly 10 years ago. Still got it. I’m now restoring 2 bay window campers. A 69 early and a 75 late. 9525A412-973C-4C38-B1BE-4557D4B228AD.jpeg

Unfortunately now sold on to fund my bay window project. Absolutely loved this, built it from a rotten shell to a screaming 16 valver on bike carbs. But needs must. I only have one garage and big plans for the bay.

Thats a very nice caddy. You did a fantastic job with that one. I restored mine from a rotter to a minter but I went down the diesel route. Its got a 1.9td engine in it. Now I have kids it hardly ever moves as there isn’t enough seats in it for us all to go anywhere in it. The 69 camper gets loads of use though, its a bit of a rolling restoration that just needs a bit of a tidy up and the 75 bay I have is a full strip down and rebuild job that i’m part way through.
