1978 Westy, 2.0 f/i - Price Reduced   Price: $15000
1978 P27 Westfalia camper – Dakota Beige - $15,000–O.R.O.

Dropped the price $2,000 - this bus needs to sell - please step up to the plate for a good clean solid unmolested original bus from May 1978, very reliable, starts, runs and drives dependably. Very good clean overall condition. Originally a Nevada bus, then lived in Georgia. In our 10 yrs. we’ve toured & camped every summer for 4 to 8 weeks with no major problems. 174k miles.

If you are looking for a show bus, don't bother; if you want a turnkey daily runner w/ solid bones & virtually rust free you will not be disappointed. The strong running 2.0 fuel injected motor has been well maintained, <400 miles on 4 x new Hankook Vantra RA18- 185R14 tires and new 55a Bosch alternator. Engine gauges include cylinder head temperature, oil pressure and oil temperature. This Westy includes all interior furniture including both tables, stool, front cot, Just Kampers winter storage cover, reasonable stock of spare parts and all camping equipment for comfortable living in the great outdoors; 2 burner Coleman propane stove, portable 3 gal. water tank, pots/pans, cutlery, plates, beer cozies & corkscrew!, 2 camping chairs, spare 110v shore power cables, outside swing table mount etc.

Original VW sales invoice from Reno, Nevada, VW operator's manual, VW Westfalia camper manual and VW warranty service book with stamps/signatures from original Reno dealer, Bentley & Muir books and a large portfolio of service records and receipts.

Please contact for questions, more specific info and photos. Additional history and information posted as “NH based ’78 Westy 2.0 – f/I needs new home” on Colin’s “Itinerant Air Cooled” under Classified–Vehicles.

The Nevada & Georgia plates are from 2009-2013, NH plates 2013 to present & currently registered/inspected until April 2020. I have clear titles from NH & GA.

Minor works list at the moment includes: a) recommission 2nd battery w/ Blue Sea split charge solenoid and the charger/inverter for fridge operation on 12vDC or 110vAC. Fridge worked well on 2nd battety or OG shore cable in 2017. b) replace pax side battery tray and corner panel (both Wolfsburg West panels in hand) c) patch holes in pop up canvas or replace. d) treat slight rust at windshield & rear door window e) recommission both interior lights f) recommission sink pump & water tank. g) test & refit propane tank and plumbing for interior stove h) recommission “hot start” wiring in cab.

All reasonable offers on price considered. Sold as is with cash payment or bank wire transfer only.
