Here we have for sale, our beloved "Betty". Before we get into full details, the only reason that she is being sold is that we are having a baby and I do not think that for the foreseeable future I will be able to do her justice and go on adventures with her as I have done this year.



Betty is an air-cooled 1980 VW T25 factory fitted Devon/Leisure Drive conversion high top campervan, which has plenty of storage and comfortably sleeps 4.



She is a 2.0 L petrol engine, fitted with a Webber single carb kit plus stainless steel manifolds. Her engine was completely rebuilt in 2015, with receipts to prove and she has only covered 2500 trouble free miles since the rebuild. Being the 2.0 engine she has plenty of go in her and is more than able to cope with modern day traffic speeds and hills etc. This summer one of her trips was the North Coast 500 which boasts its many steep inclines and she coped with no bother.



She has new front inner and outer arches, see photos, new sills, new outriggers, jacking points, crossmembers, brake/clutch servo overhaul.



Internally, she is fitted with stainless steel two ring plus grill gas cooker gas bottle included, stainless steel sink with foot operated pump, fridge, LED lighting, 240V electric hook-up, hook up cable included in sale, completely re-upholstered in brown and white faux leather which has no rips or tears, she has new curtains, a standalone table which can be used either outside or inside. She also has a brand new leisure battery and rear seat belts (one lap belt and one 3 point belt).



Her paintwork is bright and polishes up well, however, as to be expected on a vehicle this age, there is the odd area of subsurface bubbling, but nothing structural (and I am being picky). She also has a towbar with electrics.



Betty truly is a 36 year old well maintained beauty, who I would happily take with me on any journey without worry whatsoever. Before I bought her I spent about a year looking for the right vehicle and Betty was by far the best that I had seen and from the moment that I bought her, having used her in all conditions, even the snow, she has never failed to start or let me down and she will happily perform any task asked of her.



To sum up, Betty is structurally solid, clean and bright, immaculate inside, everything works and she has 2 sets of keys (all the locks work).



Her MOT expires in October this year and I will happily get a 12 month MOT on her before she is sold.



This truly is a reluctant sale but circumstances dictate that I probably won't get the chance to fully appreciate using her in the foreseeable future and I would rather move her onto a new owner for continued adventures rather than have her sat here not being used.



Bad points:



- in 2 places the paint on her front valence over hang has peeled, but there is no rust underneath

- the cowling on the steering column is not there (about £11 on ebay) this does not affect anything

- the odd minor paint bubble but literally only in a couple of places

- dash light does not work (bulb blown)



This is a genuine sale, Betty is registered in my name, feel free to contact via here with any questions or text: 07565504777 and I will get back to you. She is advertised elsewhere, so reserve the right to remove listing before end of auction, she is sold as seen so viewing is recommended, no overseas bidders, scammers, timewasters or test pilots. I have been as honest as I can with this listing and I am realistic as to the value of these iconic classic vehicles, serious buyers only, cash on collection.



If transportation is needed we have a number of a company who can transport Betty to your location, but I will not part with her, until the funds have cleared.



Looking for £8250 o.v.n.o
