Technical specifications, photos and description:
Welcome to the auction of Boris our splitscreen 1962 double door camper van.
Sadly we have decided to sell him having purchased it with the intent on converting it into a coffee bus for our business. however the business has now taken a step into a different avenue and we are now parting company with this awesome bus.
Heres some of boris's specs:Right hand driveMOT until July Tax exemptNew engine. 1. 6. starts first time on the button and pulls nicely through the gears. 4 speed gearbox . No leaks and really clean. Deluxe interior with inbuilt fridge and cabinets with wooden work-surface really looks the business inside. unlike the windowed version split screens with this van theres more privacy when camping away. just a darkened rear window and real cosy interior. That all important ‘rock n roll' bed . lovely dark red and cream trim with a matching checked floor. New full headliningFront matching bench seat with seat-belts (safety first !) . original steering wheel and gearshift. Sliding side windows . Original dash speedo …. We will even throw in the dash mounted ‘hola dancing girl' who gives you a nice little dance while you cruise along. Not lowered or messed about with just a genuine standard spec van keeping it original where possible. Original spec wheels drive great and give it that important retro look. . nearly new tyres all round with plenty of tread.
Exterior:This is a rare double barn door version of the van so plenty of easy access and great socially on a hot summer day with the doors open. some tunes playing and the BBQ grilling up some burgers . Roof rack mounted to the van. this is not only very practical for long journey storage it also looks great with the chrome and wood finish. Paintwork wise the van was resprayed a few years ago in this lovely metallic grey colour. this contrasts superbly with the red interior. it's a real head turner and looks stunning in this colour combo. there are a couple of areas where the paint has cracked that do not cause any problems but ideally long term this would need to be addressed if you wanted to keep the van mint.
Underneath: Solid no signs of rust or any welding in the past
History : The van originally supplied in Thailand where it spent most of its life in the nice rust free environment until a few years ago when it was imported into the UK and given an interior transformation.
This is a real investment. these Split screens are only going up in price and becoming collector items. Classic cars are rising in value much faster than money in the bank. Watch the video links . this really is an impressive Splitty and gets noticed on every outing.http://www. youtube. com/watch?v=WSdOidnit4M
