I have this old westy rear cushion fabric cover. It may be from an early Vanagon or maybe a bay window bus. Does anyone recognize it?

Looks like this...but the blue has maybe faded to greenish (or it's my monitor, or West Trading doesn't have the green listed)

Was offered in both a green and the blue. My 84 has the blue.

Seat covers and yard goods are still available in these patterns.

By the meter from Günzl Classic Parts:

Blue/Brown: https://www.vwbusshop.de/epages/GuenzlClassicParts.../333000362

Green/Brown: https://www.vwbusshop.de/epages/GuenzlClassicParts.../333000363

They also have seat covers. In the US all this is available from the Bus Depot:

Thank you everyone. Very Happy

This is definitely green not blue.

Anybody here ever ordered from Günzl, for US delivery?

I'm trying to purchase a different fabric from Günzl or another German vendor, but neither are answering requests for product & shipping costs ...

Many times through the years. Fast delivery and even with the shipping and Euro exchange were very competitive with US sources.

Only time I couldn't was when a part was too long for shipment to the US.

You probably have it but I have communicated with them using: [email protected]
