1981 Single Cab original Westfalia Wide Bed   Price: $12750
1981 single cab with factory Westfalia wide bed platform. The wide bed was an option made by Westfalia, it is an entire separate bolted in place instead of the stock gates. The sheetmetal bed is still underneath. Bed is 9 feet, 4 inches long by 6 feet 5 inches wide.

Legally imported from Germany 14 or so years ago, has lived in the desert ever since (I bought it in 2008). Very little rust. 109,8XX kilometers on body (just over 68000 miles, was told mileage is original when I bought it). Fresh top end rebuild on original dual-carb air cooled 2.0 liter engine, runs excellent. Needs nothing mechanically, brakes good, all electrical works. Original 4 speed transmission shifts well, no grinds, etc.

Pistons and cylinders replaced (AA brand), good quality remanufactured heads with new valve seats. All gaskets, seals, transmission input shaft seal, and clutch replaced. Original PDSIT dual carburetors rebuilt. All new ethanol-tolerant fuel hose, fuel tank cleaned.

The original paint (Lianengrun LH6A) has had at least a partial respray/ touchup over the years, as it has some filler showing on the driver's door and belly door from previous dent repair. It has had one "German Fix" metal patch on the left lower rocker (has non matching paint), has no other rust through that I have found. Treasure chest is amazingly solid, does not take on water when it rains. Not perfect, has some scratches and dings but overall better than most I've seen. Tires are 185R14C proper load rated tires, 90% tread but are a bit dry from the desert climate.

The wide bed was an option made by Westfalia, it is an entire separate bolted in place instead of the stock gates. The sheetmetal bed is still underneath. Bed is 9 feet, 4 inches long by 6 feet 5 inches wide.

Truck is still Euro spec, taillights are slightly different than US models, has reflector headlights with parking lights built in (also upgraded to H-4 bulbs). Still has original Wide Bed extended mirrors. Has all metal dash, parcel tray, commercial steering wheel, kilometer speedometer, original rubber mats (no carpet). All original glass intact (all Euro clear glass), driver's window has some scratches, I do have a pair of US spec UV door windows to include. It has the "inscribed load rating" on the front right lower corner.


Seats are original, driver's seat has a split in it from the sun. I have another seat bottom to include. Has Sony in-dash CD player.

I made the hoops 10+ years ago from pictures/measurements of original. I never had a canvas sewn for it so I just would put a tarp over the frame at swap meets for shade. Trailer hitch shown is also included. It has the original jack, lug wrench, screwdriver and wrench under the seat, as well as German roadside safety triangle.

There are a few older pictures of it in action in the gallery under my screen name. The only reason I'm selling it is I have moved on to a bigger, Brazilian-made VW LT-based, Cummins-powered single cab (pictures also in the gallery) which is better suited for the heavier work I've been doing. Clear title in my name. Sold as-is, where is, located in Albuquerque, NM. Buyer responsible for pickup/transport.
