Well Driven Approved is delighted to offer this truly unique and special VW T5 Camper Van that has been designed and built by Hinckley Camper WRX as a special 60th Anniversary tribute to the VW Transporter.
Outside, the vehicle is finished in white with Porsche Signal Green graphics and accents and door mirrors. There is also full Sportline kit including front bumper, removable front fog-light covers, rear splitter and rear spoiler and colour-coded white door handles. Other exterior features include 20″ RS alloy wheels wrapped in 245/45/20 Continental tyres and the van has been lowered 40mm all round on new heavy load lowering springs. A full-pop pop top with extra high lifter has been installed on the roof to give the roof occupants extra room at the foot end of the bed when in use or provide extra headroom in the main van. This has also been professionally painted to match the other Signal Green features. Underneath the pop-up roof there is also an awning rail that can be used when the roof is opened.
The inside of the camper has been designed specifically and meticulously to replicate that of an original 1970s Westfalia Type 2 van with a modern twist. The seats have all been trimmed in unmarked brown leather and the same original tartan inserts from the 70s vans. The rock’n’roll folding bed has also been retrimmed with 4 inches of new foam along with 1″ of memory foam along with 2 seatbelts. Other design nods to the classic include a wood-style finish throughout from the wood-style flooring in the rear to the handpainted and airbrushed door cards, pillar trims and under-dash panels. There is also 70s style brown shag carpet throughout with green trim to maintain that authentic retro feel.
The cupboards and fixings have been finished in walnut with linen worktop and pull-out table and there is a brand new and unused SMEV grill oven, Waeco CR50 fridge and new SMEV cooker and sink. Inside the cupboards there a full CBE power management unit with 240v 12v and intelligent split charge system with a 110ah leisure battery. There is also a 25-litre water tank and both the water tank and battery have exterior access with an electric hook-up point and a lockable water filler inlet. Fully dimmable LED lighting has been installed throughout and there is a VW 6″ touchscreen system with DAB tuner and 6-disc multi changer along with a Parrot Bluetooth handsfree phone system. There is also a rear-view mirror connected to a reversing camera.
This camper will easily sleep 4 people comfortably with plenty of storage and gas bottle storage with securing straps and a dropout vent.
The van itself has a 2.0-litre diesel engine that has been remapped to 155bhp from the original 85bhp to improve not only the power and performance of the van, but also the fuel economy and torque. It has covered just 59,000 miles and it has a full service history. Driver features include all the usual VW refinements such as power steering, ABS, ESP, remote central locking, driver and passenger airbags and a manual gearbox.
