It is with sadness that I am parting company with Gus, a superb example of a RHD Early Bay, finished in baby blue and white with Paris Beetle sunroof.
I have owned him for Eight years, but now I am pursuing other interests and he is no longer getting the use that he requires, and being garaged up is not doing either of us any favours.
When I bought Gus the bodywork and mechanics were excellent, stock height with steelies and a very tired interior.
After running like this for a couple of months, I decided a makeover was required and everything was ripped out and I started from scratch.
Following an internal respray, I continued with headliner, door cards, units, upholstery, new R & R bed, cab mats, flooring and seat covers.
Everything has been finished as a “beach hut” interior with deck chair stripes upholstery, so he has a real summer feel about him.
Then to set things off he was lowered a subtle three and a half inches with new Fuch copies added.
What then followed was many happy years with several trips to France and Cornwall and non-stop summers doing the show scene.
Many friends were made and happy memories of our time in Gus will last with us for ever.
I have used this bus for several weddings, including our own!
Selling Gus will be like losing a friend, but he now needs a new owner that will cherish and care for him, and to carry on making the happy times that I know he will provide to the right owner.
Price will include many, many extras and spares, such as awning, sun canopy, cooker and kitchen unit and many more, so basically Gus is fully ready for you to fuel up and head off into the sun.
