Shortened it for my preference. The relationship has long been screwed when they parked it without windows, or if this is actually a '69 and not a '71, when they modified it.

Either way, "being at Woodstock" is like selling a '79 Plymouth Volare wagon "WAS AT'79 DAYTONA 500!" because some random family drove it and parked it in the parking lot for the race. Who cares?

Hello,
Because they dropped the brown acid.....
It is a 1971, with a bug exhaust....and no mustash bar hooked up.
Sure no rust with the windows out....
Don't believe an old hippie.....

Not sure if this one has made it to the Whines:

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2316575

I really hate any Woodstock reference to sell a Bus, if you have PHOTOS of it @ Woodstock, then I'd beleave you, BUT just because someone lived near the concert area, does not mean it was there. And why does a '69 have '71 & later wheels ?? Did they swap the front end & trans from a '71 ????

Not interested in watercooled, but thats pretty cool that they kept the older bodystyle on a more modern platform.

From what Ive seen for Germany, the norm for an OG - mostly OG, clean bay window camper is north of 25k - in euros.

I would think a nice German Bay camper should be worth more than a shit house, beat over Brazilian split.

That $42k bus will never sell as is, so it's a pointless comparison. He'll be lucky to get $25k out of it, and it'll be a long wait to find the right buyer.

nor did they remove the hammock mounts on the A pillars before painting it (which at least I guess it means they repainted the whole thing, inside and out) Personally, i prefer to see OG paint in the inside of a car.. For all the sellers boasting about restoring it to original colors, I'm pretty sure no Westys were two tone

they painted over the little white plastic things that are supposed to cap the white trim piece inside the B pillar inner edge. That white trim is missing too (it should be near the seat belt mount)

those under dash kickpanels are pretty wavy and hideous- they don't even fit into the folded over metal on the outside edges... NO floor mats and looks like the just painted the kick panels at the same time as the orange on the rest of the body

However it does look very nice.. though it's always a little hard to get the new paint on inside surfaces to look like original. i always wonder why they do that. Either they completely changed color or that OG paint on the interior metal was pretty trashed?

Far from a professional restoration. more likely a bus that's been around the block a lot

Shocked 49k??? Shocked

the appraisal quotes are particularly good.

also if you are going to ask $49k why not put on some straight bumpers?

Im actually looking froward to putting it up so I can do some heavy work on it. Im just gonna let the cold air dictate when that is. I did think about holding out for 1 trip to the local ski mountain before i do, but the idea of driving it over salt covered roads scares the shit out of me. Been running the hell out of it around here and it just keeps going. I havent touched or even checked the timing, plugs, or valves since I got it dialed in a few months ago. My odometer is broke, but I bet I got a few thousand miles on it since then.

Replacing heat exchangers and cleaning up duct work is on that winter long work list. Too much other stuff going on around here to spend any time working on it right now. Just...need...to...DRIVE!
