Default T4 Caravelle 2.5 TDi, SWB,Manual RHD, 149k, 2001, Excellent condition, subtle upgrade

No Rust, VW Surf Blue.
Private number plate T40 VWC
2001 reg
2.5 TDI
130+bhp professional remap
Right hand drive
Manual
Cruise control
Air conditioning - cold and working.
Central locking - working
Electric windows -working
Immaculate seats and upholstery, in rare Lagoon Blue, much nicer than the grey.

149500 miles
Bluetooth Sony cd/radio, pairs with your phone.
Full stainless steel exhaust
Limo tint all windows
Caravelle original satin black alloys and 5 month old 15” tyres
Pair of 15” steels with new snow tyres.
Powder coated side bars
Gear stick extension
Decent wind deflectors
Carpet in excellent condition

Two keys
Original purchase wallet and manual.
A fair bit of history
Belts, clutch and fly wheel changed in April 2017
Eibach lowering springs, 40mm, very small lower to improve the handling (I’ve kept the originals).
Wax oiled underneath
Regularly treated with engine cleaner.

Thule roof bars
Tow bar
Storage box behind gear stick,
Cup holder on dash

7500

Other stuff (1.2ks worth)
2 Fasp swivels for the front captains seats (not fitted, but are easy to fit)
Bespoke fabricated steel frame, powder coated matt black for the rear half of the van. The middle seats fold flat so you can fit a full size double mattress on. You can also fit surfboards and stuff under the platform while using the top of the bed. The platform goes in and out on the same four bolts as the triple back seat.
Altro Lino floor, cut and placed on top of the original blue carpet to protect it. The carpet is in excellent condition.
Full set of waterproof seat covers
Second single rear seat fitted so the rear can have 1-6 seats or two single seats with 3 point belts in the back.

Vw original full sliding Caravelle windows (to be fitted)- not the tiny after market weird looking things.

Bad points: the windows in the back should be re- tinted, this was my next job, at the same time as fitting the sliding windows. Or the tint could be taken off and back to original, I hadn’t made my mind up. The second single seat was very kindly given to me - it’s grey and was a bit ropey , but I’ve cleaned it up and put a waterproof cover on it so you don’t notice.

I wanted to have a van that have very subtle upgrades to the original. I spent 8 months travelling round and looking at vans over 2 years. This is the best one I’ve seen. The bodywork is perfect, no oil leaks, immaculate underneath and around the engine.

I’ve had it 7 months and don’t want to sell but my wife is worried about driving such a decent condition bus and dinging it. We’re also moving somewhere where a 4*4 will be more appropriate.

We had two T4’s before this one, both written off, one through a non fault accident, the other through an arson attack - we were collateral damage.

The guy who had it before me was ex military and on top of everything. I’ve been the same. Most recent work has been the calliper sliders being replaced in January 2018.

Maintained by Steve and Steve at VW Connections in Cornwall.

If you are interested, pm me

The van is in St Agnes, Cornwall. Happy to pick people up from Newquay Airport or Truro station.

3 months MOT, happy to put it though or knock 50 off the price if you want to do your own MOT later in the year.

You won't find a better one!

When you say the interior is ocean blue, do you mean Lagoon ?

Shit driver.

Absolutely, I was sitting by the ocean, not a lagoon when I coined the ad

Grammar... the difference between 'knowing you're sh!t' and 'knowing your sh!t'
