Lot 144: Volkswagen Split Screen Camper Van

Carfest North Pride & Joy Auction, Silverstone Auctions (4 August 2013)

The VW Camper has always conjured up images of freedom and adventure, any image of the great outdoors wouldn't be complete without a 'Westy' or 'Splitty' in the picture. The Californian West Coast has moved the vision to iconic status as generations have 'lived the dream' with endless summers of beaches and surfing. . . . peace and love for the less inclined. This van was originally purchased from Bridge Motors in Leicester in July 1965 by the current owner's father. It has a Canterbury Pitt camper interior and was used for many holidays touring Europe during the 60s and 70s. It was then sold in the late 1970s and was amazingly purchased by the curent owner in 1990, after spotting it on a local driveway. It was completely restored in the mid 1990s by specialists Dowson Bowler. Having been continuously kept in a garage since, this summer bargain is supplied with an MoT until July 2014.
