1972 VW Bus Westfalia Pop Top Camper   Price: 21000
For Sale: 1972 VW Bus Westfalia Pop Top camper


This is a great VW Bus a real factory Westy that was fully restored years ago. When it was restored, it received a paint job and a new interior, and a lot of mechanical work and upgrading. While the newness of the restoration has worn off, that just means it can be used more easily and isn't relagated to being a show-car.

It has a (Painters Grinding) very recently rebuilt 2.0L Type 4 engine with a remote oil cooler, dual Weber 40IDF carburetors, extractor header and muffler. It runs very well and has more power than normal bay window buses with 2 liter engines. It has a newer Empi shifter with newer shift linkage and the transmission shifts into and out of all gears correctly and without grinding or crunching. It has recently had new brakes and shocks insalled, so it drives and steers and stops very well.

The interior is super clean, with newer squareweave upholstery throughout. The tent has been replaced with a Just Kampers 3 window tent. It raises and lowers just like it should. There are seat belts throughout the front ones are original 3 points, and still work correctly. It has tinted windows and all the Westfalia interior cabinets, sink, cooler, etc.

It even has the original owners manuals and the Tourist Shipping Order IMPORT PAPERWORK from Germany, as well as the inspection paper from the ship it was delivered on!! How cool is that?

There is no rust in the rockers or the outriggers, none behind the front wheels it looks like it had some scale rust in the front floors under the mats that was treated they are solid, though. The nose had some bondo in it, there are some paint chips and scratches (all photo documented). What are the negatives? The tires will need replacing soon, the steering box has a very minor amount of play (almost none if you are used to bay windows!) and the paint and bodywork is showing it's age.

The 1972 is the last of the desirable early bay window buses - with the low front turn signals, but with the later, beefier Type 4 engine and heavier duty 002 3 Rib transmission and very good disc brakes up front. This is a great one, in very good condition, though not so perfect you can't take it out and camp in it, or use it to run errands or drive it to work at the drop of a hat. Guaranteed to have people come up to you any time you stop to get gas or stretch your legs.

Happy to help with shippers for European or out of state buyers.
