VW T2 Bay window Westfalia Campervan Camper Bus Van Champagne Edition 2

Recently overhauled, spare engine, drive away awning.



….For sale is my rare 1978 Champagne 2 Edition Westfalia campervan which I have owned since 2011. The Champagne 2 was essentially the ‘run out’ last of the line model for these vans and as such had all the best equipment, and came in brown with stripes that shout 70’s style. My campervan has front disk brakes as standard so it stops well, and benefits from the 95 HP 2.0 litre type 4 engine (shared with the Porsche 914) so fully loaded it will still pull well, hills are no problem. XRU 620S is a left hand drive US California import that has spent its life in the region of Baja California which is a desert, and in my ownership it has always been garaged and stored over winter. Not only has it enjoyed a dry life it was fitted with zeibart protection from new, and wax-oyled when imported. Consequently there is absolutely zero chassis corrosion. My camper benefits from the exceptionally versatile pop top arrangement which allows for upstairs sleeping, as well as the rock and roll bed downstairs. The van can sleep four easily, I believe a fifth/child can sleep in a hammock arrangement at the front but I do not have this. As well as the sleeping facilities the deluxe comes with a stove and sink. The fridge has been decommissioned and can now function as extra storage or a cool box. Being Westfalia the units are in good condition, there is some minor cosmetic rippling of the veneer in places I presume from its life in the desert. I also have all the lovely little touches that come with the top end Westfalia; the small front table, the box that goes between the front seats, as well as the main table. My van is the standard ride height, the chassis has not been messed with in any way. In fact the van is standard apart from the period correct Porsche Teledials with brand new van tyres, and the tastefully done trim as the original plaid was very sun damaged. If you wanted to revert to the stock look I have the original wheels, again with nearly new tyres on, just swap them over. The only other modifications are the twin Weber carbs, again I still have the original fuel injection should you wish to swap it back and finally the exhaust system and heat exchangers were replaced to UK spec, The Californian spec being very restrictive for their emission laws. In the last two years I have had the following work done: New shocks and various bushesNew tyresNew twin WebersNew front brake callipersRefurbished steeringRefurbished gear linkageFitted VW refurbished replacement engine (with as new clutch)Refurbished fuel filler neckNew exhaust and heat exchangersNew fuel gauge sender And much much more. The van is in excellent drive away condition. The engine is worth noting, my air cooled specialist commented that it was a VW factory refurb and was ‘as new’ when he commissioned it. The engine is believed to have less than 60,000 miles on it. The bad points: There are some areas on the paint that have cracked, there is no corrosion and its an easy fix I am told. You have to look closely (see the photo album)The fuel gauge is inaccurate despite the new sender, it will require further investigationThe wipers sometimes do a wipe at random, I have no idea why! Additional Items: Spare type 4 2.0 engine. The engine runs but I changed it as it was activating the low pressure warning light at idle so it needs attention.Pair of UK spec solex carbsHalf a drum of morris oilSebring 200 awningHeavy duty cover, slightly damaged but keeps dust off My reason for sale is that we simply do not use it enough as a camper, I use it more of a day van and occasional fun run about but I think its time for (him) to find a new home.
