For consignment a "Westie" which sleeps 4 and has room for 7 to sit
and eat s'mores. This camper conversion has a new short block
engine, with the original being replaced in '06 due to an
overheating issue. This would be the last year for the rear engine
version. This shows little to no rust and just a few scratches but
looking ready to tackle the wilds of your backyard, or Utah.
Bordeaux Red (maroon) paint covers the straight rust-free exterior
of this pop top camper. The pop top is in clean good condition and
is a contrasting tan canvas with a screen for flow through
ventilation. A driver over front wheel setup, there are plenty of
sliding glass windows to view out of on your trip, and more
ventilation. On the rockers of this Westie are showing in a silver
paint which corresponds to the bumpers. This band also sports a
black trim wrapping the camper on top of the silver. Go Westy alloy
rims wrap nice radial tires.
Gray broadcloth covers the door panels and seat bolsters which have
more broadcloth for the inserts that have striping on them. Dark
gray piping surrounds these chairs. Fold down armrests complete
with cupholders are there for driver and passenger. Directly behind
these buckets are an additional two more buckets which face the
back of the camper. These belly up to a central side mounted table
which has a long bench facing these buckets and the table. A padded
bed creates the ceiling for this eating and sit down space and when
the top is popped and provides plenty of sleeping room up top which
is also accessible from the back door which is a flip up style. In
the way back there is a storage area and a few built in cabinets
with flip down doors. The floors are all carpeted with gray carpet,
the back being especially clean and dirt free, the others have
slight soiling on them. Upfront a square and rectangle dash in
black molded plastic houses the radio, gauges, temp controls and a
glovebox for the passenger side. Dash is shiny and like new with no
cracking seen. Power windows are within the door panels.
A lift of the rear storage carpeting and the engine bay is within
this space under the carpeting. Full access to the engine is
granted when this panel is in the up position. Here we see the
likes of which are a new short block, (replaced @ 90K miles), 2.1
liter boxer 4-cylinder engine fed by a Digifant EFI system. There
is also a 3-speed automatic transmission. Overall, there is some
patina, a little corrosion, and road dirt covering this engine and
bay but it has been documented as well maintained.
Slight areas of surface rusted parts are underneath, but mostly are
coated floorboards, rockers and covering panels (You've gotta love
the Germans for their aero coverings everywhere). The rear has drum
brakes, and the casings are showing some heavy surface rust, as is
some of the rear suspension, but all working properly. Upfront are
disc brakes. The protective metal shield is rusting away on the
passenger side brake, and on the driver's side it is non-existent.
A bit of chip offs for the undercoating is peppering the floors but
This Westie fired right up and on the test track presented no
problems. I noticed the A/C is weak, and the consignor states the
system has a very slight leak and he recharges it every hot season
and it lasts through the summer and fall, so it must be a small

marshmallows and Hershey bars and you can be off to the wilds of
the country. A rust-free example, 2 owner Vanagon with the
Westfalia conversion now a comfy camper with seating for 7 and
sleeping for 4.
