Lot details Registration No: GKL667D Chassis No: 226094245 Mot Expiry: June 2017
The popularity of Volkswagen's ubiquitous Type 2 model (the Type 1 was the Beetle) shows no signs of abating and, as with many automotive classics, it is the early examples that are most highly prized. In this case that means the T1 'splitscreen' variant produced in Europe and the US from 1950 to 1967 and up to 1975 in Brazil. This most eye-catching of right-hand drive examples was registered new in the UK on April 22nd 1966. It is these days finished in the strident combination of White over Pink and trimmed in Cream. It is powered by a reconditioned 1641cc engine and has been the subject of an extensive restoration between 2010 and 2015, during which many items were replaced as required. The vendor now considers 'GKL 667D' to have 'excellent' bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, air-cooled engine and four-speed manual gearbox. It comes with history file and MOT to June 13th 2017.
