Where can my son sell his 1975 Volkswagen camper van?

My son is thinking of selling his much loved 1975 Volkswagen Camper van. It’s taxed and MoT’d until the middle of next year. What would be the best way for him to sell it? And if he gets a buyer, what is the safest way for him to proceed with the sale?

This is what’s called a Volkswagen Type 2 (the ‘Type 1’ was the Volkswagen Beetle). But it will be a second generation ‘Bay Window’ Type 2, which isn't quite as desirable as an original ‘split window’ model that ran from 1949 to 1967. While in Europe we got ‘T3’ and ‘T4’ models, the T2 ‘Bay’ continued in production in Brazil, latterly with a 1.4-litre straight four watercooled engine, and goes out of production at the end of this year. The club is the Volkswagen Type 2 Owners Club (www.vwt2oc.co/wp) where you may find a buyer, r try a classic auction: www.historics.co.uk. They will deal with the administration of the sale.
