Why is there a large hole in the floor and what are those brackets hanging down?

They put a Coleman Convertible Cooler in where the fridge goes. It also looks funny with the sun fade outline of the missing mirror on the closet door.

"The Guild" is this place:
https://www.guildclassiccars.com/

Here's the page on it there but only one pic and no info:
https://www.guildclassiccars.com/1960-vw-westfalia.php

GR Auto Traders... I found their ad:
https://www.grautogallery.com/vehicles/2191/1960-volkswagen-westfalia
Offered at: $44,900 (SOLD)

Lots more pics there but I wonder why they didn't grab more of those pics or use the full description from that page?

So... flipper? Scammer?

There was a Guild automotive TV show with these guys a while back. They do restorations, etc.

If it's the same bus, looks decent. Not 100%. I like it better at $45k than $159k
It looks like the wood paneling in back was replaced with birch. It possibly? has the original rear roof panel.
Cupboard door as extra cargo door table. - later removed?
Curtains changed.

m-code plate from previous ad:
https://cdn.dealeraccelerate.com/ag/1/952/70986/790x1024/1960-volkswagen-westfalia


Just to add, YouTube on restoration of this one:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZcgV5ml6pEY Well, three minutes of it anyway with an emphasis on cabinets.

The video in the old https://www.grautogallery.com/vehicles/2191/1960-volkswagen-westfalia advertisement was from 2014. I wonder if that was around the original $44.9K sale date. Edit: If you look at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQ0EX-QVD18&feature=emb_logo you'll see what might be tents on the shop floor with a Corvette basically parked on top of one. Experts might know better than me, but I assume these were the Westy's tents being treated poorly!

And he called it a "Van" at least 4 times. Even if I had the cash for that VW BUS, I would take of $5k for each time he called it a "Van". Oh wait, member since yesterday...

160k is bonkers. to get further into the weeds, it's interesting that it only has 2 popputs but has the top level kit with the icebox. I'd be interested to see the m-code plate

The Bus has been repainted in its original Sealing Wax Red / with White paint being substituted for the tan


I really don't know what to think about this sentence. To me, it looks like the 'tan' is actually the correct Beige Grey... but if it isn't, and it really is just a random 'tan,' then the value of this bus is definitely even further from $159k.

In either case, it is very apparent to me that the seller doesn't know what they have

Well......what say you?


$159k for an SO23, and all you get are two lousy photos?

At only 62k miles, I'd like to have seen the pre-restoration photos.

Are there really only 130 left? Seems like a low number.


The SO23 "registry" website was taken over by a scary Chinese website. There is an entire thread on Westy counts, both produced and left: https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=...highlight= I wouldnt begin to know where he got the number 130 from. I have some rough estimates on the number ever for sale on TheSamba.com and it is a bit less than that, but that doesnt mean there are only 130 left in the world.

At least double what it should be, even in todays market. Being that complete it probably shouldn't have been restored fully. No mention of powertrain at all.

that "1960"/75 bus is a complete hyrbrid of years/continents/styles etc

Sempahores, Brake Light Decklid, High Tailights, Pressed Bumpers-- i sure don't see much "1960" about it. It looks like it spent more time fitting the interior than worrying about the engine

It's listed in the Brazil section so not sure what's the issue???


A bus built in 1975 is traditionally a bay window. Yeah itís in the Brazilian section which is kind of the dark web of bus ownership.

Is your response that there should a Brazilian Bus specific whine section? That would be useful.
