1961 Mango Westfalia SO23, Original Paint!   Price: $79,500
1961 Westfalia SO23 Camper Bus In Original Mango Green and Seagull Grey Paint!

For those of you who love survivors, original paint, early Westfalias, and Campers, here's a top shelf example that's not to be missed. This gorgeous Westy is a California original, super solid, dry, straight, honest, and fully enjoyable right now. We don't see survivor examples like this often and it's usually years between them coming up on the market so this is truly an opportunity!

Features to note include:

Almost all factory original Mango Green And Seagull Grey paint. Only a few small professional blends were performed.
Correct early and original sloped wood slat roof rack
Factory 6 popout window with long spoon latches option
Gorgeous original tent
Enders Stove
Bread box with EMKE cups
Wedge pillows
Original Ambulance fan
Stroker Engine with dual carbs
Big Nut transaxle
Trip-meter speedometer
12 Volt Conversion

The body is in exceptional condition and displays almost entirely original paint inside and out. Only a few small spots were nicely and professionally blended and most people would never know. There are some minor dings and wobbles as you'd expect to see at nearly 60 years of age but the Bus really shows incredibly well with strong and glossy original paint inside and out. This Bus has been in advanced collector hands for many years so it has been treated with the respect and love it deserves.

The interior is very nice with many original details intact throughout. The dash is beautiful with original Mango paint, a fresh and high quality grey commercial seat cover, nice curtains and plaid bed cushion upholstery, excellent original rear marble matting, and the wood is way above average but does have some signs of use. It is very faithful to the original design and the way it left Westfalia so many years ago!

Mechanically this Bus is an excellent driver and has plenty of power to keep up with modern traffic as well as enough horsepower to cruise to your favorite mountain camping spot. It features a stroker engine with Dual Kadron carburetors, Vintage Speed stainless exhaust, a big nut transaxle, and it has been converted to 12 volts for quicker starts, added reliability, and brighter lights, too.

This one is especially nice, remarkably complete, solid, great-looking, and ready for action. Thanks!


Please note this Westfalia is located in Pleasant Grove, Utah.
