Thule roof bars
Tow bar

Cup holder on dash


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.

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!
