1968 VW Type 2 Westfalia camper - new engine   Price: 19900
It is with much heartfelt sorrow that we are saying goodbye to our air-cooled baby, "Ruby." We drove her here all the way from Austin, TX, thinking that she would see a lot more use once we arrived in Washington. Alas, she has only worked the weekend as we generally walk everywhere. This bus has been good to us, making the journey all the way from Texas with no hiccups.

We just had the stock 4-cylinder engine and carburetor fully rebuilt so this bus really is like new (less than 500 miles on the new engine and running strong!). The transmission was rebuilt about 6,000 miles ago so you can rest assured that Ruby will see many miles ahead.

Ruby is mostly stock, with the main upgrade being newer stereo with aux input and USB, along with new speakers up front. There are even seat belts in front and back! As you can see in the photos, we have a car seat installed in which our infant daughter rode all the way from Austin. (Car seat not included with purchase.)

All the camping furniture works great! If you're not familiar with these campers, the rear bench seat folds down into a bed. There is plenty of storage below the seats, and next to and above the bed. We have privacy curtains all the way around (yes, even for the front). I will include the icebox/sink combo, although it is currently uninstalled because we prefer to have the additional space in back.

We had the brakes all replaced before leaving Texas, as well as some other odds and ends. $1,700 worth of work for which I can share the service records. She also has a fresh engine full of oil.

It will be sad to see Ruby go and we know she will treat you well for many years to come!

We have a clean title in hand so Ruby can be yours today.
