1984 VW T2 LHD



The vendor has kindly supplied the following information.

Our charity have undertaken loads of mad motoring sponsored events, trying to get to strange places using completely inappropriate sets of wheels.  We have taken a hearse to the Arctic Circle, Limos to the Sahara and raced across the 5 nations of the British Isles in less than 24 hours in a 3 wheel Reliant. 

Last year saw us attempt a hitch hike from Albania back to the Wirral.  We managed to reach Dresden and over a couple of beers decided we should have a go at buying an old car and finishing the journey in style.  The little orange VW won us over and 4 hours later we had temporary German plates and hit the road covering 1,000 in a few days, 60mph cruising and over 40mpg!!!  Just a split oil pipe and temporary repair being the only issue (still needs sorting but a very easy fix and service!). 

All the proceeds from the sale will go back into the Charity. 

This isn't our first connection with Mathewsons, a couple of years ago we purchased a cracking little Honda Cub 50cc.  Our challenge was to drive it none stop coast to coast England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland and across Wales.  Our little Honda had a 24 hour head start and then the proper bikers hit the road to try and over take.  Not a chance - Honda Cub won the day by 9 hours, completing the 725 miles in just 45.5 hours! 

Have a cracking auction and hope our little VW finds a loving home - PS, its call Dresden. 

On site now for viewing.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Don't forget. We personally collect FREE of charge around 90% of all our auction vehicles.

So, if you have a vehicle which you would like us to re-home.... just make the call. 01751 474455
