Unfortunately, due to health reasons, it has become necessary for me to rehome my beloved'bus. She is a rare South African Big Window 8 seater microbus with the original 2.5 Audi 5 cylinder engine. Very few of these vehicles were imported into this country, despite having a superior spec to the German produced versions. She has the Bosch K-Jet CIS injection in reasonable working order although rarely used as I prefer the more economical Gasure installed LPG system.A very reliable and original 8 seater minibus which has had extensive bodywork restoration by the renowned Metalmickey. I have some 600 photos taken by this erstwhile gentleman during his labours, replacing all the metal-worm and finishing off in the original Sapphire Blue paint. This was completed 2 years ago since when she has had very little usage due to my health.
Some basic specs:- Audi 2.5 litre 5 cylinder engine coupled to a 5 speed transmission which is stirred by a 025Motorsport short travel gearlever. Lpg and petrol dual fuel systems.Remote central locking, big electric mirrors, manual door windows, 8 seats with the middle row mounted on Unwin tracking to allow easy removal, rock and roll rear seat with 2 three point seatbelts and one lap strap. The middle row has three lapstraps. It seats 8 people and still has a vast luggage area, unlike todays 7 seater MPVs with zero luggage space. Ideal for conversion to a camper, it already has a double bed in it. There are a couple of areas on the body where my recent lack of care is causing paint issues, see photos. 248000 kms on the clock (150,000 miles) and has 12 months MOT. Any questions or inspection welcomed. For more information of the South African derivative of the T3, see the Wikipedia data. Volkswagen Type 2 (T3) - Wikipedia.
