The Silverfish has an upgraded 2.8 big bore engine with twin 40 carburettors replacing the factory 1.6 version. This provides ample power and speed for today’s roads. Chrome trim is visible throughout with chrome bumpers that will include a pair of ultra rare stainless steel overriders, it has opening chrome quarter light vent windows on the cab and passenger side windows, heated rear window, padded dashboard, headrests, and to set it off a sliding steel sunroof that disappears into the roof. These are some of the features that makes the Silverfish a rare beast. The bus looks like it has just come out of the showroom.
Nut & Bolt Restoration
The ‘Silverfish’ has almost completed a full ‘nut and bolt’ restoration by specialists ‘Morecambe and Wize’ www.morcambeandwize.com and when completed will be fitted out with a new cream leather upholstered interior and matching original factory pressed vinyl paneling, a full width reversible bench seat in the front, a beech headliner, new wiring loom and a full bare metal re-spray inside and out. New window seals throughout whilst replacing all original glass and fittings keeping the vehicle as factory standard as possible.
This really is a superb example of one the last ever Type 2 campers made and gets looks wherever it goes.
This Silverfish known as Silvio will join our Vintage VW collection soon and will pair up great with Ringo our VW Beetle Cabriolet or Roxy or VW Bay Campervan for your Wedding Day.
