We ‘Camper Round the Coast’ with Practical Classics!

Camper Round the Coast

To mark the 70th anniversary of the start of production of VW’s Type 2 Camper, we’ve teamed up with Practical Classics on a special charity project.

We’ve bought a 1979 VW Type 2 and the PC team will be restoring it to its former glory with the finished article being auctioned at the 2020 Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show with Discovery, to raise money for Prostate Cancer UK.

So now we’ve found the perfect one, work is underway. Andrew Evanson, Senior Ops Manager, and Dave Youngs, Car Club Manager, joined Danny, James, and the three Matts at the PC workshop for a full assessment of the van. A shopping list has been created and the tasks include sorting a bit of serious rot – a new front valance is required - and we’ll also be giving the van a full respray!

We can’t wait to see the Camper’s journey throughout the season. To join us, keep your eyes peeled in Practical Classics, on our website here and our social media for updates on how the restoration is going and how you can get involved later in the year by telling us your favourite beach in Britain!
