Description 1966 VW Volkswagen Splitscreen Canterbury Pitt Camper Bus Project RHD UK

Field Find 1966 11 Window 1500 RHD UK Canterbury Pitt - RARE!
Extensive restoration required!
Bought from the owner who had it sat since 1984 when he attempted an engine swap to 12V but couldn't complete it, so left it!
It comes with original pop top fitted, door canopy which looks all good, original engine would need a full rebuild as has been sat outside, and also another engine included which is a 12V 1300 I believe.
Included in sale is side doors which have minor repairs required to bottoms (much better than the rusted out ones fitted!)

Logbook etc has been applied for by me, as was lost by original owner when they moved in 1980, and will be in my name for new owners when they purchase.

It has some cupboards inside, original drivers red bench seat.
Also included are two replacement cargo doors but require some localised repairs.
There are loads of misc bits like rear light fittings, and engine bits etc inside included too, not sure what will be useful, but worth having.

Needs extensive restoration including but may be more:
Drivers Cab Floor on both sides
Lower Front Panel and reinforcement panel
Drivers front arch
Localised repairs to Passenger front arch
Both Front Doors need replacing/extensive repairing
Lower section on each side from below rear vents downwards (side panels, and outriggers and sill areas) front to back
Rear lower Corners
Engine decklid & bootlid into cargo need replacing as well as hinge points on engine decklid
Some cargo floor where side doors open, where it joins the bulkead in the same area
Section above engine has been cut to gain access but not fully cut out so needs replacing or T25 hatch welding in to use as access panel for engine
Some area of fresh air box/vent in front above your head
Small localised area of repair required to gutted on front passenger side and underside of front peak of roof.
Please note this is a serious project, not going to be on the road in a weekends work!
Viewing is recommended, it is being stored at a Restoration place, so viewing is not a problem, the owner of the restoration business is also able to undergo restoration work if required, but this is to be organised with the business owner directly following sale if interested.
I'm probably stating the obvious, but no tyre kickers, or dreamers, I've had them all! Check with your wife, husband, boyfriend, girlfriend, dog's aunt etc before bidding if you're unsure. £200 non-refundable deposit within 24 hours of auction ending, and the rest to be paid via bank transfer or cash on collection.
Full receipt will be given, and V5 if arrived by auction ending (have paid £25 and sent off forms to apply for logbook, as I previously mentioned the original owner lost it in 1980 during a house move!), if not the V5 will 100% be sent along, this isn't the typical excuse made by a dodgy seller I can assure you.
Vehicle is located 5 minutes from Chepstow, South Wales (NP16), and can be viewed on request! THERE IS NO BUY IT NOW PRICE!
May the odds be forever in your favour.
Thanks and good luck!
