April '70 Origial Paint WalkThru 1 Owner Westfalia   Price: $23k
EDIT 6/21/22. Dropped the Bus once again at a friends for Final Mechanical Fix, Everything is dialed, Shifts Very Nicely, Master Cylinder got rebuilt, even though was NOS, was F'd inside, Brakes are Dialed and Completely Brand New! Wheel Well Mats are Glued In, New Seat Covers on and in Place. All Lights and Turnsignals,Horn Working like they should. FOUND and Working on getting BOTH Door Panels that it needs for the water damaged ones we took out. Headliner is the last item trying to fix

I have had the Engine OUT, GAS Tank OUT, and Transmission OUT !

We had the Heads Off and ReTorqued to Factory Specs

I have gone through the Whole Bus ...

Making everything a Great Driver , All New German Brakes, New Gas Tank and Sender .New Seats Covers, New Wheel Well Mats. New Mirrors,New Tunrnsignal Lens, New Reflector's.

Whole Bus has been Hand Waxed, but could Use another WAX ...as it sat for 40 Years Outside .

The Bus is Now a Completely Different Bus !


New Rear Shift Rod Coupler, New Engine Mounts, New Full Engine Gasket Kit, New Fuel Pump, New Gas Tank , New Sender, New Fan Belt, New Spark Plugs,New Push Rod Tubes,New Engine Seal,New Wiper Blades,New Lower Reservoir, New Master Cylinder , All New Brakes Through Out,

I am sure I am forgetting Something ! Way TO MUCH WORK went into this Bus !

It's Really Not Finished as there are still a Few Thing's that need attention... BUT I am Tired and Time for someone else to Pick Up the Torch and Finish It.

Wheel Well Mats still need to be Glued Down and Brakes need another Bleed.


This is a Very Special Bus , in my Opinion .. You just don't get Original Busses from the Original Owner anymore !

1 Owner , CHASSIS # 23021847XX Bought New at DAVE RASMUSSEN VOLKSWAGEN here in NORCAL at SAN MATEO,CALIFORNIA on 11/16/70 ! Mr. Mike M Umehara.WAS THE ORIGINAL OWNER ... YES I BOUGHT the BUS from MIKE !

Mike has a Japanese Maple and Bonzai Nursery ... and this is where the Bus Sat Outside for the last 35 - 40 + Years.

After 7 or 8 Years I got Mike to sell the Bus ...

Replacement Engine which is a AS41 DUEL RELIEF Case

It IS a April 1970 Hardtop Westfalia that was Ordered as a Walkthrough and was Never Repainted ... Except for a small area in the Rear Corners .

1 OWNER BUS not Messed with , There is some Black stuff on the Paint that should come off with a Polisher

A SOLID ORIGINAL HARDTOP WESTFALIA in ORIGINAL PAINT and Very Little Rust , just the Battery Tray is the Only Real Rust on the Entire Bus

The Childs Cot is still with the Bus as is the Mosquito Net

Not Sure what else to say Except for it is a 1 Owner ..

There is Very Little Rust Under this Bus ...

*** Engine Sounds Good ! We just Finished the Brake job 4/5/2022

Brakes we Used ALL GERMAN Parts Including the 1 Year Only '70 Master Cylinder which I found and IS NEW OLD STOCK
