This 1972 Volkswagen Type 2 Westfalia camper van has investments in
certain areas that will definitely appeal to you. It really
maximizes the go-anywhere nature of this classic, and so that means
you get to turn heads as you roam from coast to coast.
This VW Bus loves to show you it's a vintage machine. It starts
with the earth-tone yellow paint that has the right 1970s vibe. The
white roof goes nicely with the whitewall tires (new in 2021), and
the coordinating white bumpers have the desirable integrated step
on the front one. It's a very complete package presented in a total
style that lets people know it's a lifetime wanderer. So you just
know the rear windows are ready for some fresh destination
The interior is the right mix of vintage and upgrades. It starts
with the factory-style presentation for the driver that includes a
low-back bucket seat, VDO gauges, and the thin/grippy steering
wheel VW Bus fans know well. Even the AM radio is still cranking
out tunes! This has a great classic style, but we also have over
$3k in receipts for refreshing the interior within the last few
years. This includes the upholstery, floor mats, heater, front
shoulder belts. Plus, there's was also $1,000 in 2018 for a new
Westfalia tent top that coordinates with the exterior color. And it
remains a true camper with a working sink and refrigerator. The
classic cabinets are still in place for good storage, and the rear
section continues to be a useful space that converts from a sitting
room into a fold-flat bed.
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. We have a receipt for
over $2k for a top-end motor rebuild in 2018. So it really upholds
the road-ready attitude of these campers. The four-speed manual
transmission shifts crisply. It also has modern cruising tires and
front disc brakes that give you added confidence. It's a true
vintage road-trip machine.
Complete with build receipts, this is the classic that has been
given the right investments to remain vintage, fun, useful, and
all-around desirable. Call now!
