VW T25 Campervan 1.7 D - 1988, 1 year MOT, engine recon 2016

Postby Ads1987 » 04 Jun 2018, 20:47


Up for sale is our much loved VW T25 1.7 diesel (KY code) 4 speed manual 1988 pop top camper van.

"Norange" has been all over the country on various camping trips over nearly 5 years of ownership, it's been a tough decision but we want to save up to buy a house and unfortunately this is the easiest way!

She's had a huge amount of work undertaken over the years, I don't like to leave things that are worn so i'd much rather replace parts as soon as they start to show signs of problems. We purchased the van from a guy who stripped it down completely, removed all the windows and carried out a large restoration of the whole van. He replaced loads of bodywork panels and did a full respray before building it all back up with a refurbished interior.

In 2016 after a trip from Kent to Aberdeen and back via the Lake district, it became apparent the engine had suffered a crack in the cylinder head - even though it was still running at this point it was taken to a local garage who helped carry out the repairs. We sent the engine away to the engine shop (http://www.theengineshop.info/) and they refurbished our own engine and the garage fitted this back with a huge amount of new parts I've listed below, this is documented with receipts, paperwork and photographs if needed.

Now has a full years MOT from 30th May, 2 advisories which were rear wheel bearing very slight play (normal as roller bearing) and o/s/f top ball joint has small amount of play - a new ball joint has now been fitted so nothing for the new owner to worry about!

There really is a lot of history with Norange and she's been very well cared for, there's too much to list on here and you'll probably get bored reading it all, so give us a call to chat about it and come and have a look around in person as the pictures don't do it justice.
