Elvis was bought on ebay in October 2009. He was not road worthy due to a seized engine so was trailored back from his old owners in Dover up to his new home in Bedfordshire.
He was in a very sorry state and like many campervans had received numerous poor repair jobs in his 36 year life. However we could see his potential shining through and mend his broken heart.
Although tired he has an authentic ‘Westfalia’ interior (Elvis is a ‘Devon’ type model campervan) which has been restored.
The exterior body work & mechanical work was carried out by Matt who has 18 years experience working in body shops as a professional panel beater & paint sprayer.
So for anyone wanted to know the technical details or anyone doing up their own campervan below feel free to read the following month by month progress from October 2009
