We are very sad to be offering our beloved van for sale. She is a T30 2.5 litre TDI DSG Automatic (if you are reading this you know this van is rare as hens teeth!). The list of extras is perfect – tailgate, twin-sliding doors, twin captain seats., etc.
This is a 54-plate van and has 164,000 on the clock but mechanically is largely brand new. The entire engine and all associated injectors / mechanics etc. were replaced 12 months ago (so has 12 months remaining on a VW main-dealer warranty). We have also this month given the gearbox a full refurbish, replaced the alternator and replaced the torque converter with new. The suspension and all wheels and tyres were new 200 miles ago. In terms of the “business end”, the key components have covered less than 10,000 miles.
We have spent some serious money creating this camper so the purchaser does not need to! Anything we could find that was slightly substandard has been replaced and, as such, she drives superbly. She is finished in rather cool Black Magic paint, which is in great condition having been professionally refinished and part re-sprayed earlier this summer.
The base van is about as high-spec as possible, with the full electrics kit (windows / folding mirrors etc.) and 5 seats including two “captain seats” up front and a separate double and single VW OEM seat in the rear; the rears are removable and have 3-point seatbelts, fronts have armrests and there are headrests all-round.
The list of extras and works is too long to mention here, but in summary, includes:
- Professional day van conversion (double bed and sports kit storage, fully insulated and carpeted)
- Very high quality Hifi system (Hertz / Pioneer & Sony reversing camera)
- Fully colour coded bodywork
- Lowered on new “comfort” coilovers with new banded steel wheels and brand new load rated tyres for a superb stance!
- Private numberplate (“T50 VVW”)
This is surely the ultimate ready to go day van with the added bonus of a new engine and the ease of automatic driving.
