VOLKSWAGEN T25/T3 CAMPER.
This Volkswagen T25 has no rust anywhere having spent its life in Greece. It was bought from new by a cotton farmer in an inland area and although sunbaked was totally rust free with all the panels straight albeit very dusty. It never even left the area of Greece it was registered. When the farmer was retiring he no longer needed the van and we came across it through a friend of friend, took one look at and could not believe the condition it was in and bought it straight away.
It was given a full service and thorough mechanical inspection and went to be totally stripped down, windows put in and painted to a extremely high standard by a classic car restorers in Volos. Once completed (6 weeks in the their workshop) it was driven 2700km back to Wexford to start the conversion.
On the way back we discovered a sticky solenoid on the starter motor, at midnight on the motorway in Italy. A call to our mechanic for a bit of advice got it going. The following day in Choulex near Geneva at a friends house we the van up on the ramps, starter motor off a gave all the contacts a clean and a good lubricating and set off for France. Following morning, voila, stuck again, but a friendly mechanic in Cherbourg gave it “Le petit tap” with his pliers and that got us back to Wexford were the starter was taken off and sent for reconditioning.
The materials were chosen very carefully, 100% pure Irish sheep wool insulation, 70% recycled content irish plywood, even Lloyds approved high temperature adhesive, the list goes on and on and on. Where possible we have kept as many original bits from the panel van and refurbished them.
