Also the roof bellows are old and grubby but work fine

August 2017
Two weeks in France never missed a beat in fact we didn't even bother with arranging breakdown recovery before leaving as she ain't never broke down!
Been in same family for nearly 15 years now and has been well used but well maintained and is 80/90 % rust free in all the right places i.e. Rock solid underneath and sound roof gutters
A genuine little bus if you want a Vw that is practical as well as unique and if you like spending endless hours nattering in fields full of vans
We don't really want to sell but it hardly gets used these days
Trying to upload pics but easier to email
Van located in Devon
