It may not be the quickest car at the show, but a stunning VW Camper is going under the hammer at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Motoring fans will bid away over the course of the festival at the Bonhams Collector’s Motor Car Auction, and this stunning camper van is expected to cause quite the price war.
With an estimation of £90,000, here’s a look at the story behind this classic camper…
A perfect restoration
The 1967 T1 Camper wasn’t in the best of ways when Steve Quinn took ownership of it back in 2008. Not only did it need a thorough makeover both inside and out, the van also had no engine whatsoever. We know VW Campers can be slow, but this one was stuck at a standstill.
Steve kept it at Windrush storage, and it was alongside help from Windrush that he completed a perfect restoration. He worked hard to add seating, storage, chrome bumpers, modern features inside and a brilliant blue-paint job on the outside.
And, of course, there was the small matter of the engine. Steve added a new two-litre, 100bhp piece to the van, finishing the restoration off in style.
According to Windrush, since the restoration has been completed, the car’s only travelled 1,800 miles, meaning it’s still in stunning condition.
