1978 Volkswagen Autovilla

Transmission : Manual

Mileage : 56109km

Colour : Cream

The Iconic Auto-Villa was conceived and designed right here in South Africa by mating a Volkswagen Kombi and a Jurgens Caravan together, there were minimal changes that had to be made to both parts to make it work.

The Volkswagen that this is based on is known as Bay Window Bus and came with a 2.0lt Flat Four air-cooled engine and 4 spd gearbox that gave the Autovilla an optimal cruising speed of 80 km/h, and used 12.8l/100kms without a headwind. With our one this engine has been changed to the Audi 2.3 litre helping you beat all the hills that you find along the way on your journey to your campsite of choice.

With this Autovilla, all the luxuries have been built into her, you will only need a bathroom at campsites. The main double bed in the rear is fitted with a Dream Mattress, that has never felt the warmth of a body sleeping on it. Above the cab, you are able to sleep two more of your family or friends making this Autovilla a family adventure toy.
Coming to the Kitchen there is loads of cupboard space that has been updated and looks very modern by Autovilla standards.  You will find a Snappy Chef Induction plate to cook on and below that a Defy microwave to cook in or just to make popcorn as you watch the sunset. To keep your food and drinks cool we have fitted a National Lunar Fridge/Freezer Combo, and once it comes to cleaning the dishes which is part of life there is a stainless steel sink with a water bottle and pump to fill it. And last but not least, there is a fitted LED light that is in the living space that will make your journey a joy when you can see in the living space of the Autovilla.
Naturally, she comes with a Rally Tent and a dual battery system that can be charged from the external port. And lastly, we have a retro-looking radio that you and connect your Bluetooth device to, so that you can enjoy your music on the journey and at your destination.

Are you the adventurous type of person and van life is what you are looking for, then this is the way to start.
