This 1966 VW Campmobile has been fully restored and built to the highest specification by UK Sports Cars.

This is a genuine factory German-built bus that was supplied new to the UK. Take note of this camper van being a right-hand drive. This format is, of course, the most sought-after for classic VW Campers in the UK which is why we concentrate mainly on sourcing the best RHD shells to restore and sell. This is becoming increasingly more difficult as only around 10% of all Split Screens were supplied in RHD from factory and many haven’t made it through six decades.

 

The Ultimate Mechanical Specification

This bus has had an enormous amount of time and money spent on it to bring the mechanical specification to what is considered to be the ‘ultimate spec’ for a split-screen bus, enhancing all areas to allow for the optimum driving experience.  

  • Reconditioned 1641cc engine. ICT Twin Carburettors, bell crank accelerator linkage, alternator, and full-flow oil system with external oil filler. Absolutely superb engine ideal for modern traffic!
  • IRS (Independent Rear Suspension) setup and gearbox at the rear. Uprated gearbox to allow for higher top-end speed and quick shift Scat linkage for easier selection of gears.
  • 5X112 Hubs at the front with Disc Brake Conversion for enhanced braking performance. Later rear hubs and brakes to add even further to performance.
  • Adjustable front beam with ball joints for improved performance and stance
