Restored VW T25 1982 Poptop Campervan - Rare German Teca Model!!


About the van

2.0l Air-cooled Type 4 engine, the last of the air-cooled and arguably the most reliable VW aircooled engine produced. These are true workhorses and with a small amount of knowledge they just keep on going.
This van has been restored inside and out, and the underside.
The van took 3 years to restore and was finally back on the road last summer. Had two lovely trips to see Justin Bieber in Cardiff with my daughter and then to Barmouth. Van went well and we were both looking forward to a full year camping in the van this year...however, i have made an offer on a new house which has been excepted so the van has to go! Its been used 3 times since the restoration which is clear by its unused condition. The interior has been kept as original as possible with minor repairs where needed. All the seating were professionally recovered in Beige corduroy (new foam also) and are of very high quality finish. MOT runs out in June but I have no problems in getting another 12 months put on for the buyer.

Other information
1. Couple of small blemishes starting to show, one by the gas tank switch cover and a tiny one on bottom of passenger door, about the size of a raisin but nothing that effects lovely finish of this van. These could be touched up by a shop for not much money.
2. Scratch on sliding door done courtesy of the VW Centre in Telford.
I will be getting these small blemishes sorted this week for the winning bidder.
Lots more pics available of underside and other areas i just had a limit of 12 for the listing, if you email me i can send you the rest.
Spent 13k on body, interior and mechanics. This does not include the labour costs!!!
Very reluctant sale but hoping someone else can live my dream for me!!
Very low starting price so good luck bidding....
Viewings are very welcomed. The van is located near Shrewsbury. Email me for a viewing
