Here’s a blast from my past and I’m sure from a lot of other people’s past too. Thanks to Noah Ryan for spotting an ad on Adverts recently for a camper that needed a full restoration. As soon as Noah sent me the link to the ad I recognised the registration number but I couldn’t place where I knew it from. Then it hit me so I went digging through my dusty archives, ok, my hard drives!
I last saw 934 EIK as The Juice Bus and the ‘shiny’ photos were taken at the Eirespares show in 2007 in Monard, County Tipperary.
The description on the advert reads as follow: 1972 Vw T2 restoration project. Van was produced in Ireland not an import and has original brown logbook. Has been lying up long time reluctant sale just don’t have time or funds to fix.
Even back in 2007 this Bus was starting to need some metalwork but nothing massive. Fast forward seventeen years and it has been sitting idle quite a while and the rust has really set in but despite all that, this Type 2 would make for an excellent restoration project. Any Early Bay is worth saving these days and this one, although not a genuine Irish assembled Type 2 as the owner believes, having been imported and registered in Dublin in July 1975, it’s still an Early Bay with a genuine old Dublin registration number and it has some fun history behind it so if you’re looking for a project, why not look up Adverts and contact the seller to find out more and arrange a viewing. This Early Bay Camper is for sale at €7,000 and is Dundalk in County Louth.
You never know, you might yet be submitting your completed restoration photos and information to update this listing soon!
Thanks Noah for the memory kickstart this evening!
