Vehicle Description

A Volkswagen Type 2 Bus is all about filling the most classic car fun in an economical package. And there's no better way to do that than in a Westfalia camper. So take some extra time to explore the cool vintage attitude of a Bus that's ready to hit the road.

These were built to be wanderers. The back windows of this 1971 VW are ready for some destination stickers. And it's great to find a clean and complete example like this. It starts with the maroon red with hints of white on the bumpers and roof. It's a cool classic look that looks ideal for a 1970s machine. The body has a few signs of use, but that's what you want on a Type 2 camper. After all, these were made for an active life. And the vintage appeal runs deep on this one. We have some great paperwork showing that this has been a North Carolina VW all its life. So no matter where this one roamed for nearly half a century, it always came back home to here.

The setup in the front is clean and comfy inside. You have vintage pieces like the VDO gauges and dual-spoke steering wheel. The rear has the full home-away-from-home feeling with the classic rear facing seating that feels more like a breakfast nook or a living room with the collapsible table. There are cabinets for storage, and there's even the setup for a sink and refrigerator (may need servicing to fully function.) And of course, you have the iconic pop-up tent roof make this Westfalia one of the most versatile campers around.

This second-generation Bus comes with plenty of engineering improvements. First of all, the 1600cc motor is more powerful than anything available in the first generation. Plus, that VW flat four motor is one of the most economical and robust powerplants to maintain. And since this one has a fresher replacement motor, it really upholds the road-ready attitude of these campers. The four-speed manual transmission shifts crisply. It also has modern cruising tires and power brakes with desirable front discs that give you added confidence. It's a true vintage road-trip machine.

The sale comes complete with a terrific paperwork file that includes the original bill of sale, owner's manual, maintenance records, and build receipts. This is the Westfalia camper that's ready to make new friends on the road, and it even has a story to tell them. Don't miss this distinct traveler, call now!
