Apparently OG paint -( possible one re-spray or partial from fender bender) Going to be kept nice and OG just buff it out possibly.

Interior covered in wood paneling - OG front seat almost complete interior minus cab panels.

OG engine I think? rebuilt in 8o's.

In the back there is some kind of westphalia copy made by VW dealership in Texas back in 65. I'll have somefun with that later....

Loads of history, was featured in a camping magazine way back (65?)

I'M THE 2ND OWNER bar the dude who found it in Texas.

Now has fresh rubber that holds air - new battery - partial break overhall courtesy of seller.

I'll find the rest of the pics from the add later 2

Very Happy

Very nice! Looks like you may have some rust issues in the roof, but that looks like it will buff out very easily. Looking forward to progress pics.

Oh, and please try to keep it stock. Just my opinion. Very Happy

I'll just have to buff harder then till it's OG again Smile I can see a little of the OG primer in other pics Very Happy

Interiors some kind of reproduction by the VW dealership where it was sold based on wesfalia- I only saw a few pics of the back.

I'm kinda happy with this as I can have more fun without destroying an OG westy.

Basically standard Kombi........

Cool Cool Cool 6 side pop outs!!! Cool Cool Cool

The complete add......


1961 Kombi Camper Price: Sale Pending Ben
One owner original Alpine, Texas bus. (west texas). I bought this bus from the original owner who bought the bus from the dealership in Alpine which was a basic Kombi, sealing wax red bus. He and the dealership converted the Kombi into a westy SO 23 camper style based on westy blue prints and instruction manuals. I have most of the original SO westy manuals used by the dealership and they are in mint condition unlike the interior. Some of the wood inside the camper took moisture do to insulation was put behind the panels.I have all of the receipts dating back to 1965 on everything ever done to the bus. In 1967 the bus had a fender bender and the bus was resprayed back to it's original color of sealing wax red. The bus is really dry with the exception of a couple of areas: both outter rockers and two surface rust areas on the front part of the roof. The front and cargo floors are good, inner rockers,doglegs, jack points, outriggers, cross members battery are in great condition.I would buff the paint and just drive it. According to the owner and the receipts the engine was overhauled in 1983 and he drove the bus until 1985 were it was parked in the garage up until I bought it.The camper was featured in a camping magazine back in 1965 and that will be included with the bus when the owner mails it to me. I will get the bus running, some brake work, new battery and tires for my asking price. the price may go up as I get more work done to it. I have the original Texas title and tons of receipts. I live in a port city and can deliver for free. Shipping cost paid by buyer. Note: Will take partial trade on a early ragtop or vert beetle running and driving.




We'll see what I've actually got in a few days Very Happy

That will be so much fun! Makes me cringe though to see that bare rim on the steel of the flatbed. Hope the wheels are not trashed when you get it.

The guy I've got it from is very well known in the scene, I'm sure he's taken good care.

I want to mention him once I see it as he's been a top guy to deal with. If it ends up as good as it looks I can give him a full recommendation Very Happy
