This 1972 Volkswagen Type 2 Westfalia camper van has the clean looks of a well-restored classic. So it's go-anywhere nature means you get to turn heads as you roam from coast to coast
There were big investments all over this Bus that was part of the full restoration that happened from 2013-2015. And the first place you notice it is the paint. Texas Yellow is a great name for a color on a classic that's made to roam, but more importantly, it's a modern clearcoat finish with an excellent shine. So the sunlight really shows off the sheetmetal that was restored to look clean and crisp. And the cream-colored roof and matching bumpers give the full look of a coordinated 1970s-style two-tone. And everything from the color-matched wheels to the fresh weather-stripping shows a commitment to detailed quality.
The interior was restored to be vintage while adding in the right comfort. For example, the front seats have a classic low-back style, but they are really modern Procar buckets that have the padding to be long haul comfortable. The steering wheel, gauges, and shifter all have that classic VW feel. And nothing beats the commanding driving position of a forward-control van. The rear portion has full cabinet fittings and good carpeting that has a very classic style but a far fresher feel. There's custom seating that faces a collapsible table. It's all part of a package that folds flat into a twin mattress. Also, there's the iconic pop-up roof for comfortable camping. Plus, the power outlets and Campmobile sink/fridge unit make this a true home away from home.
These second-generation Type 2s were known for getting the larger displacement motors, and this 1700cc unit was professionally rebuilt as part of the comprehensive restoration. That's why this well-kept example fires up nicely and runs strong. The four-speed manual transmission has a smooth action, and so it makes it easy to get the most out of this mighty air-cooled powerplant. Another reason why the second-generation Type 2s are desirable is because the suspension was also greatly improved. And this one furthers the desirability with modern cruising tires and upgraded power front disc brakes.
Complete with build receipts, this is the retro camper with the right investments for modern fun. So you'll love it for everything from cross-country adventures to enjoying outdoor concerts. If you want your road trips to truly be memorable, you need to call today!
