I have been looking around and noticed that the SO-23 campers have a bunch of scattered threads all over the forums. I was hoping to see a lot of the threads mended together in one place to help show the changes in colors, options and everything involved in a the SO-23 campers. Question and answers!

I have found this site online. www.so23westfalia.com

Looks like it stated in August 58 and run through 65.

My low hinge late 61. Came with a factory fuel gauge? The dash looks to have came with it, or really nicely dealer installed. When did the first bus get a fuel gauge?

Mind, this is what I was told when I got the bus. The M code plate was deciefered by someone other then myself. I will go take some pics of the plate.

What I see here is A42, which means SO42 not SO23.
The picture of your interior is clearly from a late SO42.

That's a 67 SO-42 model A42, not an SO-23 bus.

unclespanky Thu Sep 01, 2011 6:48 pm

Well congrats on getting an SO-42 and if you need help there are plenty of SO-42 owners on this site and quite a few in Norcal as well.
