….For Sale Rare RHD 1973 Westfalia Continental VW T2 Campervan Stunning Right Hand Drive example with many original features, tax exempt, MoT to July 2018, ready to drive away. Westfalia is one of the oldest names in camper vans, the company being established in 1951 in the region of Westphalia, Germany. From the beginning Westfalia has built up an enviable reputation for design and quality, a fact as true today as it has been over the years. Back in the 60’s and 70’s Westfalia were the only approved converter of Campervans by VW. This was due to their high standards held and those expected from VW. The Westfalia Continental is arguably one of the best and most desirable conversions. It sleeps up to 5, with a full width rock ‘n’ roll bed, 1 hammock downstairs and a double bed in the elevating pop-top. Here for sale we have our rare 1973 1641cc Westfalia Continental, “Graham”. Graham has been lovingly restored and brought back to his former glory. Graham, over the years, has had a pretty hour and penny spent on him, with many new things including a full professional re-spray, where he was wrapped in a fresh coat of the original VW colour – Brilliant Orange L20B with the top half and roof painted in VW Pastel White L90D. He is running on a 1641cc engine which has just been fully serviced and tuned by Bobby at “Milk and Two”, our local air cooled specialist and is an absolute pleasure to drive. There is quite a lot of history with the van, including info and receipts, which include a previous restoration as well as the purchase of a new 1641cc RemTec engine, which was purchased from VW Heritage and fitted by Beetle Werks in West Sussex . All of Graham’s chassis rails, out riggers, jacking points, cross members and sills are all solid. He is rock solid British bus and has been under sealed to help protect and preserve him. Graham is a lovely vehicle still retaining many if not most of his original features including sink, cupboards, table, gas hob, headlining, beds, front seats – which are in great condition. The front and rear seats, cushions and the pop-top bed have all been professionally re-upholstered to a very high standard. The rear seats convert into a full width rock ‘n’ roll bed, with lots of storage underneath. Graham also benefits from 240v hook up and a leisure battery. He also has a top of the range fire suppression system fitted in the engine bay, which gives great peace of mind. As you can see from the photos, this is wonderful example of a VW camper. Any test or trial welcomed. As stated before the camper is running a 1641cc engine which has just been fully serviced and tuned. He runs super and is a pleasure to drive. The roof canvas, which is premium quality with 3 x zip down windows, has recently been replaced and is in excellent condition. There is absolutely zero trace of rust or corrosion on the body. This isn’t the usual corroded, clapped out old VW you see time and time again. This vehicle really is a cut above the rest, all the works carried out have been done professionally with no expense spared. The camper is over 40 years old and is in impeccable condition considering his age especially when compared with others of similar age!! The panels are straight and true please refer to the pictures. Graham has an MoT until 18 July 2018 and has no advisories. He is ready to go camping! Graham is a used camper and whilst he is not perfect; he is 44 years old and is in exceptional condition. I have tried to be as honest as possible in my description and hope all the photos help. You are more than welcome to contact Steve on 07926 031197 to arrange a viewing. THANKS FOR LOOKING AND GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR SEARCH!
