Super 1973 Volkswagen Baywindow Devon RHD South African import.

END OF SEASON REDUCTION
Price reduced by £3000 to sell now at£15950

(Agreed Insurance Valuation £19,000)

'Nelson' is an original RHD, that has spent its whole life in South Africa until it was imported in 2017.

It has a 1600cc twin port Type 1 engine. It has had the timing and carburettor checked and adjusted for the UK climate and has had an oil change and new filter fitted.

I was intending to keep Nelson to hire out along with my other Westy but a change in work means that I no longer have time to manage this and so Nelson is up for sale.

Nelson although now tax and MoT exempt will be sold with a new MOT and has an agreed insurance valuation certificate of £19,000.

The following work has been carried out:

Set of 5 wheels bought, sand/beed blasted and powder coated.

Set of 5 new Wolfsburg chrome hubcaps

New draglink arm fitted

New drop arm pivot bushes and pins

New manifold

New accelerator pedal and linkage

New Flamma rooflight fitted

New windscreen bottle and electric washer motor

New Bosch battery fitted

New starter motor

New spark plugs

New HT leads

New Distributor

New Madmatz fron carpet

New Securon inertia front seat belts fitted

New front and rear indicator lens covers

New door scraper

New sliding door rubber and handle

New sliding door step trim

New rear door rubber

The interior has been re-trimmed by the previous owner in SA in a period colour Westfalia style vinyl fabric on all seat door cards, rear engine bay cushion etc. The roof lining has also been replaced.

There is an original concertina Devon style pop up roof and a full width rock n roll bed which converts into a spacious double bed.

I have an original VW roof hammock available but it is not fitted as there are various options for sleeping arrangements which you may wish to consider.

A child's hammock can be fitted across and above the passenger and drivers seat.
The 'mileage' reading is 91,000 kms but I do not have the paperwork to verify this.

I also have an original Westfalia kitchen unit which is available separately too if this was of interest.

I have shown Nelson with curtain and a portable kitchen Daypod unit borrowed from my Westy.

A portable kitchen unit is ideal as when the weather is fine or if you have an awning the unit can be simply lifted outside so that cooking and washing can be carried out outside (so you do not have to put up with cooking smells inside).It also frees up space in the back.

Just for interest I have included a few photos of my 'Dubpod' awning which is specially designed to link up to VW Baywindow. These are ideal for festivals and for a family/glamping experience.

The engine starts on the button with no smoke (see video) it runs very smoothly and pulls well.

As one might expect from a South African import the underside is very solid as are all the cross beams jacking points etc.I have treated and protected the underside with Dinitrol 3125 which is a waxy film. Ultimately it will benefit from a coat of Dinitrol undercoat but my thinking is that a new owner may prefer to see the condition of the underside coated as it is in a fine layer of wax rather than coated in a heavy layer of underseal which might hide some significant defects.

The bodywork and panel gaps are tidy and the danger areas of gutters, sills and below the front windscreen are all solid, the enginebay is very clean and tidy too, the chromework is good.

There is still plenty of scope to add ones own personality to Nelson and to increase the comfort and value of Nelson further.

Should you wish the rental potential of the VW campervans is very good at c. £5-700 per week and this can produce a significant additional income. There are a number of excellent websites that link up those with VW campervans with those who wish to hire for holidays, festivals etc.

So now is the ideal time to buy at the start of the season either to rent or to gear yourself up for a family holiday.
