1972 VW T2 Early Bay Cross Over Devon Moonraker 4-5 Berth (LOCATION SKELMERSDALE)
Rosie is a Devon Moonraker early bay cross over, (rare model). I purchased her 6 years ago and spent 2 years completing a full nut and bolt restoration. During her restoration, I replaced the upper front panel, two front inner and outer wheel arches, front floor section, nearside inner and outer sill, two rear outer lamp panels, two battery trays and rear panel. I stripped the underside to bear metal, zinc coated and re-stone protected. Pop top roof was stripped, fitted with complete new seals and skylight. Rosie underwent a complete inner and outer professional repaint (in spray oven), upper half white, bottom half pearlescent orange.
Front seats, rock and roll bed and door cards were reupholstered by Boundary Car Care, St Helens, in full leather, half orange, half white with VW logo embroidery. They also fitted new roof linings, tailor made carpets and TV/DVD/Freeview. There is a child’s hammock which fits in the front bay & 2 original bunk beds which were never re-fitted.
New units were fitted along with Smev 9222 sink and hob unit and WAECO fridge freezer running through leisure battery system, (fitted with power management system PMS 3V MAINS 240 V), for electric hook up.
Rosie has a 1.6 aircooled engine and was fitted with a new Vege bottom end just before I purchased her approximately 5000 miles ago. She underwent a full top end rebuild 2 years ago and alternator conversion. All engine tin wear is colour coded to match body. New heat exchangers, rear shocks and CV joints. Front suspension had all new ball joints, steering arms, bearings and front beam fitted with adjusters for adjustable ride height and uprated shocks, two new front brake calipers just fitted, (pretty much everything, too much to remember). Complete genuine external seals/trims have been fitted. Alloys are like new and fitted with all round new tyres.
Rosie has 12 months MOT, is tax exempt and has been dry stored. Rosie is an absolutley stunning bus as can be seen from the pictures, although pictures don’t do her the justice she deserves as she looks better in the flesh, she looks like new and turns heads everywhere she goes and she will be sadly missed! We have a file with pictures showing some of the restoration we undertook, along with lots of receipts and MOT’s dating back approximately 20 years.
Please see terms and conditions before proceeding to purchase.
