FOR SALE US$ 100,000 obo A one-of-a-kind, price winning and fully custom build VW campervan.

Build by the owner of the renowned Volk Repairs himself. This 1961 fully restored and special assembled Volkswagen T1 3-doors double cabin pick-up campervan was finished in 2019 after almost 10 years of work.You’ll have the time of your life with this T1 camper! It has been completely restored from the ground up and adapted to modern standards. A complete engine revision of the T3 air cooled engine took place, currently with only 14.000 km on the meter. 4-cylinder 2.4 l fuel injected engine with amongst others 123 ignition, two 44 Weber carburetors, K&N air filters and a remodelled Golf 7 TDI exhaust.The gear box has been custom made with a more powerful first gear and longer fourth gear.

Custom reinforced suspension with disc brakes on the front, drum brakes on the rare and Bilstein shock absorbers.
No costs have been spared during the restoration and this can be seen, noticed, and felt. Driving this camper is sensational, and a lot of attention has gone to optimizing comfort. The aim was to create a driving King-Sized bed in a classic car with the ability to stand up inside the car because of a pop-up roof. This roof allows for ease of changing and cleaning.

Both Porsche front seats can be rotated, giving you the option of creating a nice seating area, and with the luxurious fridge, your food and drinks will stay cold. Where possible, the lights have been mounted with LED bulbs, and a Bluetooth speaker surround set as well as a heated floor, completing the whole experience.

There are several USB charging points allowing you to charge your phones or other devices whenever you want, with either 22V mains voltage, or through the two 12V batteries that are placed on board. All windows can be opened, are double isolated, and equipped with roller screens and blackout curtains. On the right side of the camper, an outdoor kitchen is placed, allowing you to create an outdoor area underneath the XXL canopy, with additional sides. A gas connection and power connection is within reach and you can enter the camper with an electrically operated step. The step is secured in such a way, that you can never drive away without folding the step up first.

The roof is fitted with a roof rack that is custom made and can be reached by a ladder. The roof box is fitted on top and installed at the front of roof rack are very powerful LED lights which can light up a whole forest on one of your adventures.

We took the campervan for a ride of a lifetime from Canada to LA where we planned to sell it and we continue our travels by bike through South America. More details and specs available.
