Does anyone recognize this westfalia fiberglass top? It looks similar to a 1974-79 upper portion but is a hightop not sure about the dimensions.

Description from ad?

Westfailia fiberglass cap 58in wide x 103 in long
-may be off a Volkswagen bus
-could be used on a utility trailer

Hello, Now, that looks like one big wind catch. Might as well drag an anchor behind the bus... It's the "how slow can you go" westy top.
I'd like to see someone get into underground/covered parking with that one on top... Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

lol seriously!

You definitely could stand up and maybe even do jumping jacks inside the bus with that hightop.

There is no arch on the front of that fiberglass to match the roof line of a baywindow bus so is the photo showing it from the back? Or is this for something else entirely?

So wierd but too far from home to take a look.

This one was discussed before, it was part of a camping trailer.
