73 Double cab with Westfalia WIDE BED   Price: £23000
1973 VW Crewcab with Westfalia Widebed.

I sourced the vehicle from Sweden where it had been parked indoors for many years close to the Sweden / Norway border which is an area kind to vehicles as far as corrosion is concerned. My understanding is it was a local authority owned vehicle first then a road surfacting company prior to its long term storage.

The truck was in very solid condition with only a few minor rust repairs needed. These were carried out by me and the areas blended in as best as possible. There was no chassis, outrigger, Jack point rust at all. Very good floors, loadbed etc. I have pics.

The truck is fitted with a genuine Westfalia wide bed which has new phenolic ply base and original side wood. It has the original Westfalia sticker on the back and brass plaque on the side.

5 New 15Ē steels with brand new BF Goodrich KO2 tyres all round. The spare is located in the tool compartment area below rear seat.

Swedish spec headlight washers with large capacity kick panel screen wash reservoir and electric screen wash pump.

NOS Widebed mirrors.

Original upholstery interior in nice condition. Nice original dashboard, original upholstery door cards. All correct rubber floor mats.

We have gone thoroughly through the truck recommissioning it ready for years more use.
Work included.
Rebuilt 1600 motor. Align bored, new bearings, rings etc etc.
Solex carb with dual advance distributor and stock air cleaner.

Stripped, checked and re sealed gearbox with fresh oil.
New clutch.
New battery.
New cables.
New brakes (calipers, cylinders, master cylinder, discs, drums, handbrake cables and hoses.
Fuel tank removed, cleaned, new filler neck hoses and seals, new fuel sender, new breather hoses.
New genuine VW rear lights, new headlights, Nos front indicator lenses.
6 new Securon seatbelts bolted into factory seat belt mounting points.

Bluetooth Sony stereo with concealed speakers below seats.

All electrics work including the dash lights, interior light, fuel gauge, number plate light etc.
it has an eberspacher heater which is a factory original unit but I have not used it. As we have fitted really good heat exchangers I donít have the eberspacher connected as we just donít need it here.

We put this together so it was ready for us to drive.
