SOLD: A beautiful, original Berlin Westfalia Camper. *SIMILAR QUALITY CARS ALWAYS REQUIRED* EQUIPMENT Foldout seats, cool box, Sink, Water storage and pump, Electrical points, Curtains, Blind windows, Storage cabinets, Spare wheel and cover, Lockable petrol cap, Cassette player and Pioneer speakers, Heated rear screen, Interior lights. EXTERIOR Having been a dry state US import Van this example is a good solid example. It has had a full restoration, including a re-spray in the original Taiga green colour. During the re-spray all of the windows, doors and the roof were removed. As such, the inside of the doors and door shuts have all been painted and finished off correctly. When the van was re-assembled it was fitted with a new front windscreen as well as new window and roof rubbers all round. On close inspection there is a small amount of light blistering near the rear arch and bottom of the sliding door however this does not detract from the over-all excellent appearance. Both front and rear bumpers have been re-sprayed white and remain free from any scuffs or damage. INTERIOR The van has been treated to a fresh re-carpeting throughout the interior which remains clean and free from any stains or damage. The front seats have also been re-upholstered with green vinyl and check cloth to match the theme throughout the van. Both front and rear seats are in excellent condition with no tears or damage to be found. The plywood cabinetry is still in good order, housing plenty of storage space, a cool box and sink. The 'pop up' roof still works exactly as it should, housing a double bed. At the driving end of the van the dashboard houses a cassette player hooked up to a set of Pioneer speakers. All of the switch gear still feels solid to operate. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION The Camper is still fitted with the original 2 litre fuel injected engine similar to that which can be found in the Porsche 914. At the turn of the key the engine fires into life and idles correctly up to temperature. Recent replacement parts include a new fuel tank with fuel hoses, engine oil and filter change and a new air filter element. The 4 speed manual gearbox is matched to the engines power well, allowing a leisurely and comfortable cruising pace. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES The original 14" steel wheels have been refurbished and painted white to match the bumpers. They also wear the VW chrome hub caps which are all in fine order with no corrosion or pitting to be found. The wheels are shod in a matching set of brand new Hankook tyres. The rear wheel cylinders have both been replaced, new pads and discs fitted all round, new Boge shocks, flexy brake hoses and the brake system bled through with fresh fluid. HISTORY FILE This 1978 VW Westfalia Berlin Camper was first registered in the US where it remained in a dry state for the majority of its life. It has recently been imported to the UK by the current enthusiast owner. In the history file the current V5 document and MOT certificate can be found, along with various documents referring to the importation of the vehicle.
