Meet Connie, our 1967 VW Splitscreen!

We’re so excited! We’ve just bought the epitome of retro cool – a vintage VW Splitscreen.

Last weekend we took a long trip to Dartford to take a look and fell in love so brought her home the very same day!  Known for at least a decade or more as Connie, she is our new ‘project’ camper who we hope to have available for hire (holidays and weddings) next year. She drives like a dream so as we have an early bay to complete first we’re going to enjoy her this summer ☀️

Connie is a 1967, right-hand-drive, walk through, Devon Torvette conversion, one of the last splitties, and we’re super excited by her near complete original interior. The only thing missing is the passenger seat mounted cooker – if anyone out there has one they’d be happy to part with please let us know?????? She was also originally Pearl White, the jury is out on whether or not we’ll restore her original colour, but what ever we decide she will have lots of bling with chrome safari windows, deluxe trim and bumpers galore!

Here are a few pics of her interior.
