Model information

Bay Window Camper


78 C 1045 is a very well used Type 2 Campervan. Roger O’Sullivan photographed it in Cork a number of years ago. The body had been painted purple and white at some point in its life and it was now looking a little rough in places but that told a story of many miles spent travelling around Ireland and further afield before it was imported here in the 1990s. Yes this Bay Window could benefit from a restoration, and it will need it at some point, but it would lose a lot of its well earned character. Having said all that, once fresh from a full restoration, 78 C 1045 will be ready to hit the roads for many more years to come with its 2 litre engine pushing it along.
