VW Westfalia Bay Window Camper Tin top 1968

Stunning looking camper!



….Here we have for sale a restored VW T2 Bay window in superb head turning condition. Has been in England for nearly 9 years but was originally a Californian import. I bought it two years ago from a chap who imported it himself and then, as he had a large collection of VW’s, let it sit for 7 years whilst he decided what to do with it. Cutting a long story short, I then bought it and set about getting it ready for use.It has had a full respray, done about 18 months ago and it’s a good quality job. I have always wanted a Deluxe model and painted it to look like one, but I have left the interior the original white, just painting the outside the Savannah Beige with a lotus white roof. I have added the deluxe chrome trim to the waistline to make it look as original as possible. Body is rock solid, has had a few small metal repairs, but nothing to write home about and is mostly original.Everything is new underneath including new ball joints, brakes, rear wheel bearings, cv boots, etc. The gearbox is quiet and whine free and the engine is completely new throughout including a line bore, regrouped crank, new Mahle barrels and pistons, rebuild heads, new bearings, seals etc. The engine tin ware has been powder coated, the exhaust and heat exchangers are new, and it has a lovely stainless steel tail pipe. The engine bay was stripped an repainted and the rear firewall also power coated the original colour. There are also four new tyres with wide white wall inserts that look awesome and really add to it’s retro look.The interior is also excellent, with new seat covers and door cards, the Westy seats have all been recovered using the original vinyl material and all it needs is curtains. I was going to buy some, but I think this van now needs a new owner to personalise it?I’ve now got into American trucks, and have a project I’m looking to complete therefore want to sell this to finance it. As the pictures show, it’s really lovely, drives well too. It’s all UK registered, tax exempt and has it’s last mot in October last year…it won’t need another now.
