Normally, if you decided to shell out on a camper van, you’d expect to have a fair amount of change from that sizable sum. Not in this case. This iconic ’Splittie’ is predicted to sell for £90,000 – the same price as a brand new Aston Martin V8 Vantage.
The 50-year old camper is a Type 2, which makes it one of the most highly sought after editions on the market. It recently went through a ‘nuts and bolts’ restoration meaning it’s in the best possible condition.
Known affectionately as a ‘Splitscreen’ or ‘Splittie’ because of the iconic windscreen design, the VW is instantly recognisable due to the two-tone V-shape design emblazoned across the nose.
Inside, plush seating and lavish wood panelling feature heavily. The rims and bumpers are made from chrome. There’s even a set of furry dice in the window.
Despite the van itself being half a century old, it’s fitted out with the latest Alpine sound system.
The camper goes under the hammer at the Bonhams auction at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex at the end of the month.
