VW Campervan T2 Westfalia Original Late Bay Window Camper




….We are selling our lovely 1972 VW Campervan USA Westfalia Campmobile, as we just don’t have the time to use her anymore. This van was one of the very first ‘late bay’ versions, manufactured in September 1972, making her a rare van. She started life in the American state of Oregan, before moving to California, where she spent most of her life, she was then imported from the USA by Karman Konnections (VW Specialists). Obviously, being from American ‘dry-states’, she’s a left-hand drive & has very little rust. As she spent most of her life in Oregan & California, she is an extremely ‘dry’ van. Since we have owned her (6 years), she never goes out in the rain! The underside is in fantastic condition & we have rubber coated her using Master Guard, so there is no chance of the van rusting from the bottom up (where most British/European vans suffer!). The interior is the original Westfalia design & upholstery, apart from the drivers & passenger seats that have been replaced with newer seats (see photos). The upholstery is original & therefore is showing signs of wear & tear (please see photos). However, we decided to keep the van as original as possible…which we believe makes her more unusual & more desirable. The seat foam is in good condition, so could be easily be repaired or re-upholstered, if desired. The paint-work is original VW Orange, she has a few chips & scratches, but, nothing more than you would expect for a 45-year-old van. The body-work is in very good solid condition with no filler anywhere on the van. This van has had a ‘complete inspection’ by Type 2 Detectives, as seen in our photos. See Type 2 Detectives website if you don’t know who they are & you’ll see they are VW experts! Their verdict on our van was…’This is a great van & we would drive this van anywhere’! We have completely replaced the brakes & brake pipes (work undertaken by Type 2 Detectives), as mentioned the underside has been completely rubber coated using Master Guard, making this a very ‘dry’ van. She has, new white wall tyres, which have done very few miles since purchase…so practically brand new. All receipts for work undertaken & spares included. She has a 1700cc engine & has just had a new battery, HT leads, spark plugs & fuel pipes (work carried out by Gotts of Norwich, VW specialists). The engine is in very good condition & she starts every time. Lots of original features, the interior includes 3/4 rock ‘n’ roll bed, wardrobe, sink & cabinets. Brand new VW rain cover included in the sale. I am happy to send more photos if you are interested. Sorry for this bit, but the Camper will only be released on cleared funds, I am not interested in a swap/exchange. Test drives are welcome, with me as a passenger and on the production of a valid insurance. If you wish to arrange a viewing or have any questions please call 07393 362 790 (please leave a message).Buyer to collect from Norwich NR7 Thanks for looking.
