Lucky find! 1970 Dormobile with original interior

Post by Derek » Tue Oct 09, 2018 7:32 pm

Today I bought this 1970 Dormobile with the original interior intact. The seller has sprayed the cupboards black with aerosol paint, but luckily the paint comes off easily with acetone. The tent will have to be manufactured, and the two vent windows in the roof are gone, but apparently she drives well and has virtually no rust, being a Gauteng vehicle. I will know her true condition when she arrives in CT next Thursday. Luckily the seller kept the spare wheel holder he removed from the nose, as well as the VW badge. I'm not too sure how many of these were brought into SA, but I have only owned one before, minus the interior...Does anyone know their history in SA?
