VW Camper (1972 Bay)


….Connie is a 1972 model and we are the 2nd owner, she’s been our van for 14 years in which time she has been loving used for trips and garaged when not in use and has proved to be reliable. Original 1972 bay VW camper Westfalia with original awning. Beautifully looked after by 2 owners since new. Rarely used, high days and holidays, garaged, 95,000 original km on the clock 2 2pence size rust patches in the front foot wells (appeared in last 2 years) Small amount of rust on sills and starting on wheel arches. Needs a loving home. Reliable beauty, only being sold to buy a newer van to travel further in. The previous owner had bought the van from new and used it on high days and holidays whislt keeping it garaged for the remainder of the time. Connie was amazingly sound when we bought and we have never needed any welding work to her and she is the way she was intended when she left the factory in 1972 (so far as we are aware). She has the original white and red two tone, She has not been re-sprayed. The interior has been recovered and curtained and as you can see from the pics is a nice place to sit and sleep, as the original curtains unfortunately fell apart when washed and we like the fun bright colours which compliment the out side. The interior panelling has some scuffs as you would expect from an original 46 year old vehicle. Connie has a cooler fitted along with a small sink, storage and ‘wardrobe’ space. The pop top is mustard colour with a little tear but is serviceable and watertight, and there is an original awning which matches and has spring loaded poles to bring to together, after 46 years there are some marks on the awning, mainly rain water stains from the beautiful british weather. The van is a 2 berth with a rock and roll bed in the rear which provides a small double bed. Mechanically the van is in good order. The garage where she was MOT said ‘It is soild and a great example of the model’ It has an MOT through to April 2019 She is air cooled. We believe this is a stunning looking 46 year old Bay that is in excellent condition, it`s not going to be a show ‘n’ shine winner (but I’m sure it could be if that is your desire), it was never intended to be, but it is a cared for original van, we have attended local car shows where she certainly draws a lot of attention. She is authentic. We are looking for another loving home for her to be fully appreciated for what she is. We live near Bath BA15DU so please check our location and how far you may have to travel to view/collect before buying! My preferred method of payment is by BACs or cash on collection. Available to drive away end of June. Please ensure that you have the funds to buy the van before agreeing to purchase it. MORE PHOTOS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. Thanks for looking our Connie! NO SALES CALLS PLEASE.
