sonora the samba

Period accessories add to the charmThe joy of a sunroof bus and sunny weatherStock height - a refreshing original lookBuilt in April 1965 as a 7 seater walkthrough sunroof Deluxe and finished in the classic colours of Sealing Wax Red / Beige Grey, it was exported to California and was rediscovered in 2006 rusting / next to a barn in Missouri.

baby blue bay

The interior features the “Classic” layout from the Van Wurks rangeClassic Late Bay stylingCab carpets feature colour matched edgingMark Jones had long admired his mate’s Bay camper so when he spotted one for sale on EBay that looked tidy back in 2005, he decided to check it out instead of just putting in a blind bid. It had been stood on the owner’s driveway for several years but looked quite sound despite needing new paint and interior.
