After 15 years, it’s time to say goodbye to a very precious old friend…”The Beige Bullet”. 1979 Type 2 Devon classic late bay VW campervan, 2000cc engine, with full-length pop top. 4 berth, fridge, sink with water pump, hob and grill. In very good condition after plenty of TLC and two extensive restorations, both in 2006 and in 2017. Last service August 2019 MOT until 28th August 2020 As well as full service in August 2019, the following work was done New front suspension beam (removing and refitting belly tank) New set of ball joints New pair of front brake calipers New rear wheel cylinders Replacing all fuel lines from tank to engine In 2017 we had the van stripped back, fully cleaned up, re-panelled where necessary and made good all over, before professional respray in original Mexican Beige and new seals throughout. The interior units rebuilt with new fridge (gas or electric), sink and gas hob. In 2013 the roof was also fully upholstered, re-hinged, with new canvas, hydraulics and interior carpet. New rear bumper. In 2006 we did the first refurb, replacing all panels where necessary and the whole van was resprayed. Seat covers are worn and the Grade 1 Thatcham alarm needs reconnecting, but we have all the contacts for that. Nearly 40 years worth of paperwork tracking a long service history and original purchase booklets etc.
