It looks almost like my interior!

Canterbury Pitt was one of the popular conversions of split-screen vans during the nineteen-sixties. Owned by Peter Pitt, started as the Pitt-Moto caravan Company, then merged with Canterbury sidecars in 1961, production moving to South Ockenden in Essex. Conversions continued based on the newly-introduced bay window van in 1967, but when Peter Pitt died in February1969, the franchise to produce his designs ceased and Canterbury Pitt Motor Caravans discontinued VW-based conversions.

Today the bay window conversions are rarely seen, usually appearing on 'F'-registered vans.

Conversions

Canterbury Pitt -Bay - 1967 - 1968

Bit of boring info :-D
1964 Canterbury Pitt
1968 Bug (under construction)

Keep it stock

Time to sort the leaky rivets the stock Devon way.....
Lots of snipping, trail fitting etc.......5mm tolerance under the seal, so its a bit of a twitcher......


Damn these dodgy photobucket links......

Only glued the nearest edge so far, will gradually move across a bit at a time, carefully not to snip to much away!
Or get it twisted.....contact adhesive etc..... :roll:

Looking really good fella, you could always get 'someone' to shot blast the hinges then spray paint them :wink:

Right Angle in Hatherleigh. Cheap as chips!
Have nothing on your VW that you do not know will make it go faster, or believe to be beautiful.
