We also supply and fit Paris Beetles excellent sun roofs we can even slam it to the ground on bags or let the sun shine in for you.

Prior to purchase

We thoroughly inspect every vehicle to ensure it is a suitable candidate for our restoration and refurbishment process. We hate to see any classic turn to dust but sadly some are just too far gone for economical recovery. Once in the workshop a more detailed inspection is carried out before complete strip down. Each and every panel and component inspected and a decision taken whether or not to restore, refurbish or replace it. Replacement items are factory original where available or the best aftermarket parts where new is no longer an option.


Every stage from arrival to sale is a documented process with steps that cover every aspect of the refurbishment. This standardised approach guarantees efficiency and ensures that nothing is missed. It also allows the build sheet, which follows every vehicle right through the process, to be completed prior to being passed to the new owner.

Unless the van is being sold as a project, in an as located condition, all body, chassis and structural corrosion is identified and removed with new panels welded in place. A full underside protective coat is applied and the suspension and steering assemblies and rear transaxle. Once refurbished are finished in satin black prior to being reinstalled. Engines, electrical installation, fuel system and all other items required for use on UK roads are checked. As a final tick in the box a full MOT is provided for the new buyer.

We can even recreate a 23 window Samba for you at a fraction of the cost of an original.

So if your wish is anything from a project to a finished, ready to drive classic VW you only need to ask and we can help build your VW dreams. Contact us to enquire about a VW build
