    For sale - 1955 Wolfsburg camper, GBP 45000

    August 1955 Wolfsburg split screen camper, mostly original Dove Blue paint, Factory safari windows. This bus spent most of her life in Portugal. I’ve owned it for nearly 7 years and it is always garaged.
    It has a 30hp 1200 engine with Wolfsburg West Okrasa carbs and heads which gives the bus a bit more power. The engine is very sweet with no end float. She has been converted to 12 volt electrics (starter motor still 6v and wipers on a volt dropper). The 12 volt dynamo is new as is the coil and electronic ignition. It has working semaphores (volt dropped as well) and the rear indicators can be swung out of sight if needed. It has a working fuel reserve tap and has a Wolfsburg crest horn push.

    The bus has new crossply 6.70 x 15 tyres and they are mounted to powder coated wheels. The brakes are duel circuit with a VW JIM brake servo which works great. The speedometer is correct year and is in MPH. There is a 1955 Blaupunkt radio installed (for show only) and also a CD/radio with rear speakers which runs off the leisure battery. The interior is very practical with lots of cupboard space, 2 led lights run off the leisure battery as well as a couple of 12V sockets. It also has a two burner hob and a grill. There is a seat box in the rear that houses the leisure battery, gas bottle and water container (which runs to a tap in the sink with a Whale pressure switch), and there is a 12 volt coolbox that doubles up as a seat. The rock n roll bed is easily made up and it has new 4” foam installed. The interior has a ply lined headliner with insulation behind it.

    The leisure battery is topped up with a solar panel which is fitted on the Repro Westy full length roof rack. The top aluminium part of the roof rack can be removed on its own frame which reduces the height to fit it into garages easier and there is a folding ladder rack. The front bench seat has been recovered and there is a Bilstein jack in the treasure chest.

    A great feature of this bus is the yellow & grey repro Westy awning, it gets a lot of attention when I’m at shows, easy to erect and dismantle. It has 6 Jalousie windows and they all have fly screens. A swan neck tow bar is fitted and the original ribbed bumpers have rear splash guards fitted. The bus has had new jacking points welded in and a couple of small plates here and there. The paint has a lot of patina and has been protected with Collinite wax.

    The undercarriage has been painted with Schultz body paint and the original splash pan is fitted and the front deep arches are original and solid. The gutters are straight and do not have any rust or rot in them.

    Totally solid van - NO rot. Doors shut perfectly.

    Great opportunity to own a 1955 Wolfsburg bus. Driven to European shows.

    I am happy to assist with overseas shippers (all shipping at buyers expense)

    Regrettable sale but new motorhome forces reluctant sale.

    Please get in touch if you require any more info or photos. Viewing available most days and times.
