Wednesday 14 June 2017: #windrush is preparing to bid a fond farewell to one of its oldest and most celebrated client #cars: a stunning and fully restored #vwcamper that could be worth up to £90,000.

Windrush has stored the Type 2 van for almost five years since owner #stevequinn put it through an extensive transformation process, providing it with the perfect home from home in its state-of-the-art Cotswold facility.

Having benefited from the ultimate VIP treatment under the watchful eye of #windrush owner and founder #timearnshaw, the #camper will go under the #hammer at Bonhams Collector's Motor Car auction at the #goodwoodfestivalofspeed to something of a fanfare.

When Quinn acquired the VW in 2008, the 'rust-free, ex-California' example didn’t have an engine and was in need of a major makeover. Now, it boasts a brand-new two-litre engine with a maximum power output of 100bhp and is one of the most celebrated models of its kind.

There’s plush new seating, wood panelling for the storage areas and chrome on the bumpers and rims, while extensive white and blue paintwork restoration has the van looking the part from the outside.

There’s plenty to shout about once you’re inside, too, as the #camper offers several modern tech features, including an Alpine surround sound system, DVD player and an internet connection.

Since the car completed its restoration and took up one of Windrush’s spacious bays in the Cotswolds, it’s only travelled 1,800 miles and been subject to the very finest treatment from Windrush’s team of professionals.

Windrush is famed for being a luxury spa for #cars; all vehicles that come through the exclusive doors are treated to the best care and are fully managed throughout their stay. Not only are they subject to a full valet and detail service, but they’re also kept in a high-security, dehumidified and climate-controlled environment to ensure conditions are ideal.

Around-the-clock security, daily checks and connection to an automatic battery conditioner adds to the pampering, and Quinn’s #vwcamper is one of many hugely desirable vehicles to have been treated like a VIP and have its staggering value protected.

Founder and owner of #windrush, #timearnshaw, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to see Steve’s #camper going under the #hammer with Bonhams at the #goodwoodfestivalofspeed. When I introduced the pair recently, I knew the union would be special and I can’t wait to see how much the van fetches at #goodwood. We were trusted to keep the van in absolutely pristine condition after restoration; taking it back from Steve after his modest use and making sure it was pampered until he next wanted to get behind the wheel. Steve is a real lover of all things 1980s, and the VW is just one of his incredible vehicles that #windrush has been trusted with over the years. We’re looking forward to continuing our great relationship even after the incredible #camper has found a new owner.”

VW #camper owner #stevequinn added: “With #windrush, I have total peace of mind with my #cars – I simply cannot recommend their service enough. #timearnshaw and his team did a fantastic job looking after the #camper – the car was always kept in the very best condition and Tim even pointed out potential faults to ensure it continued running smoothly. I do love my #camper but it’s time to pass the torch; I’ll certainly be recommending #windrush to whoever is lucky enough to win at the auction!”

The #goodwoodfestivalofspeed runs from Thursday 29 June – Sunday 2 July.

Editor’s Notes
Windrush is the very pinnacle of luxury car storage in the UK and the only solution for drivers looking for the perfect temporary home for their beloved vehicle.

Established by #timearnshaw in 2004, #windrush was born out of Tim’s personal desire to find somewhere to store his precious Morgan recreation model in ideal conditions to give him complete peace of mind during separation.

The first #windrush centre was opened deep in the picturesque Cotswolds, but as demand was so high thanks to its exemplary service and unique approach to car storage, it wasn’t long before operations expanded.

Just 13 years after opening, the site has almost quadrupled in size and earned a sterling reputation all over the UK. In 2015, #windrush opened new facilities in Central London and further enhanced its billing as the ultimate luxury vehicle storage solution.

Across both sites, #windrush offers the highest level of security, a dehumidified and climate-controlled environment, 24/7 access to your vehicle, connection to an automatic battery conditioner, daily checks and a soft, breathable cover.

Windrush offer seamless vehicle relocation services throughout the UK, Europe and overseas - offering its clients a single point of trust and contact to simply enjoy their car whenever and wherever they so choose. Whatever it takes.
