Splittie and Type 2 Splitscreen
Thanks to Joseph Purfield for submitting this Type 2 Split Screen to the Beetle.ie Census. Joseph snapped this camper in May of 2018 at a show he was at.
The 1963 Splittie may have been a US import but we’re not entirely sure. The paint scheme looks like Pearl White (L87) over Medium Grey (L22), although Medium Grey is a Barndoor colour but it could just as easily be a one-off shade mixed for this Bus. Either way it’s a stunning colour on a beautiful Splittie.
We love the thin whiteband tyres and the awning. Just perfect!
We’d love to find out more about this Bus so if you know something about its history or indeed, if you are the lucky owner, please get in touch and we will update this listing.
