1965 SPLIT SCREEN CAMPER VAN
1965 VW Split Screen Camper Van
Left Hand Drive
Harry Harpic Twin Port Engine
OUTER | BODYWORK
Syd has front safari windows, side pop windows, rear jail bars and a TMI interior. He had a top half respray and the front panel has also been done. Both bumpers have been sand blasted and repainted and look as good as new (paint for both colours will come with the sale).
In 2010, he had a Harry Harpic twin port engine fitted with Solex carbs along with CSP front disk brakes and independent rear suspension. More recently, a Bear Motorsport gearbox was fitted which comfortably allows higher cruising speeds of around 60mph. He's always been serviced by us and never misses a beat. In November, all four tyres were replaced, he had a new starter motor fitted and was given a full service.
An automatic fire extinguisher has been fitted in the engine bay and he also has split relay charging for the both the main and leisure batteries, the latter of which is fitted to its own fuse board and runs the stereo and a 12-volt socket.
Syd's interior is used and simple. He has a full-width rock and roll bed and a removable table. The TMI interior could do with being removed, all leather re-glued to the panels, and then re-fitted. There are a few small holes in the headlining but it's in good shape considering it's original.
For sounds, Syd has a West Coast Customs 100 watt amplifier driven by a Pioneer Face Off CD player with USB input and is connected to a 150 watt sub-woofer. A new long seatbelt was fitted on the front passenger side so that a car seat can be used and the rear has two lap belts.
Is a pleasure. With his 1776cc engine, IRS gearbox, suspension and front disc brake conversion, he's better than the average splitty.
FINALLY, A WORD FROM THE CURRENT OWNER
We regularly use Syd for camping trips, he's snug but comfy. Frequent trips to the West Country for surfing means he's used all through the summer months, and last year we took him on a road trip to Bruges ... he didn't miss a beat. He's well used, well maintained and has given us so many wonderful memories, but after eight wonderful years owning the old chap, it's time for a change. If you're looking for the same kind of adventures you won't go far wrong bringing Syd into the family.
