This is Macy, a 1971 Volkswagen Bay Window Camper, the last of the early bays which were manufactured from 1968 to 1971. She has always been a camper and was converted prior to being delivered to her first owner by Devon Conversions of Sidmouth, Devon. Originally the bodywork was painted in orange and white, a very popular colour in the ’70s. The original interior, which I removed was in yellow Formica, with orange moquette cushions.
She had been sitting in the previous owner’s garage for 13 years awaiting some tender loving care, and then I bought her in May 2015 and that is when the labour of love began.
My intention was always to restore her back to as close to new as possible, not just a lick of paint a and a wipe down with an oily rag.
