ORIGINAL PAINT Real 1 OWNER Walk Through HARDTOP WESTFALIA
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 ...
