Dennis – 1969 VW T2 Tintop Microbus

I sold my variant and had been looking for a double cab for more than 3 years and not found a DC anywhere in right condition, for right price…

I saw on ebay in UK a 1969 California import to UK and got pn a plane to Norwich to see it.

32 hour drive later I was back in south of France with my new investment.

The car was a 1969 tintop, it was originally an 8 seater microbus when in left the factory but the guy I had bought it from had registered it only as a 5 seater. It had been lowered as well and for 5 months I drive it around but it bottomed out everytime I went out in it so I ended up switching the lowered spindles to original ones…

You can see the difference between the 1971 Westfalia – Bob and my 1969 Dennis.. both have own qualities!

Rita – 1972 VW Variant 1600LE Squareback

I decided to invest what money I had in the bank in a Type 3 VW which I found in Spain near Valencia.

I really enjoyed owning this squareback for just over a year and used it to take my kayak to the beach at sunrise.. great running engine, great on motorway, no issues with it in time I had it.

It was a USA Specification 1600 fuel injection, was a blast to own and drive and I only sold it as I wanted the more upright seating position of a T2 early bay.

So with heavy heart I sold it to a guy from NE France…
