I purchased this van about a year ago from ebay after sending years looking for a van that was original and this was about 1 mile from my house!!!!!!
It's a 1970 Dormobile camper with just over 68000 miles.
I am the 3rd owner..... the last owner had the van from when it was 2 years old and sold it to me last year......thats over 32 years he owned it!.
It's just like it left Dormobile with all of it's original fittings still in place.
The van has both the bunk beds, a buddy seat and a dormobile stool that is also the toilet(The owner commented " i have only had a couple of wees in the toilet") in the same style as the cupboards.
The van also has the original curtains all round and a replacement set of curtains that possible are from a dormobile also?
The van is still on crossply tyres and the spare is the original from the factory,the owner said that he has only used the spare a few times and remembered wrapping the jack in newspaper when he fitted the spare...when i checked it was from 1984!!!!!!!
The bumpers are fitted with the deluxe trims but i do not know when.
I have refurbished and repainted the fresh air vent in body colour only to find out the brown paint was possibly original dormobile brown....if anyone knows let me know.I also fitted an nos delux trim around the grill as i felt it would match the bumpers
Future plans include keeping the bus original but replacing all the rubbers.
I have purchased a 1970 clock to fit to the remaining hole on the dash...this will be the only modification.
The seat covers are all original although there has been a repair carried out by the owner, if any one knows where to get the original or very similar replacement material please let me know.
In this photo you can see a clock that the previous owner has sitting in the remaining hole in the instrument cluster and thats why i am fitting a correct year genuine clock
In the back groung you can see my other early bay more on that one later.
It's not perfect it does have a couple if issues not bad for a 37 year old!!!!
