This 1965 Ford Thames is one of them. Looking quite smart wit hits two-tone colour scheme and the raising roof immediately shows the purpose of this car.

Unfortunately, the camping-interior has vanished. The folding chairs in the back look to be the original ones, but the rest of the furniture has gone.

Nevertheless, it is a charming campervan and it should be possible to restore it back and make it a fully functional campervan again.

This Ford Dormobile is part of the next sale at auction house Mathewsons on May 26. The auctioneers estimate it at GBP 5,000 to 6,000.
