A Volkswagen Type 2 Bus is all about filling the most classic car
fun in one 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 this Bus, and see the subtle ways it has been
upgraded to make sure you want to hit the road even more.
These were built to be wanderers. The back windows of this 1971 VW
remind you of that with its destination and experience stickers. In
fact, the patina red paint is even believed to be the original
application. So while you could certainly give this VW a respray,
most of us already love the earned road warrior style. And this
plays the vintage role well with details like the clean "bread van"
body panels and wraparound bumper with the integrated step. And the
white of those bumpers goes well with the Westfalia camper roof and
big VW emblem up front. While this is a true classic, it also has
been given the right investments to be a true cruiser. So those BRM
wheels not only look sporty, but they also allow you to fit better
modern tires. And the hallmark pop-up Westfalia top even has a new
canvas tent to keep it quite handy.
The setup in the front is clean and comfy inside. You have vintage
pieces like the VDO gauges and dual-spoke steering wheel. But
there's also added comfort from the reupholstered bucket seats,
custom center console, and well-placed shifter. 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 (it comes with the sale if requested.)
The Westfalias also gave you a wardrobe, cabinets, and a fold-flat
bench for an impressive use of the compact space. And when you have
added details like a wicker picnic basket and extra fabric for the
side curtains, you can really unwind about anywhere you pull off
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 dual-pot unit has been pulled out,
resealed, and refreshed, it really upholds the confident 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.
Complete with the owner's manual, this is the Westfalia camper
that's ready to make new friends on the road. Don't miss this
distinct traveler, call today!
