Thanks for your assistance with getting shipping quotes Neil. You are truly an international superstar. Now I just have to survive the weekend at Rafferty's, and get it home safely. We will pick it up this afternoon. I hope we don't spill Guinness and Murphy's all over it.

You mean like an English "Camperification" of a Barndoor with the installation of a Rock and Roll Bed and such?

You are kinda right Brendan. But no rock and roll bed here. Monkey Nut VW garage was kind enough to host the unveiling of the contents. Check it out. First a hint at what is hiding inside the box.

And Brendan beat me to the setup photo. Here is the rest of the interior, that I got in a trade about four years ago. Thanks Mark. Wink After spending almost ten years on two different continents, the complete NOS Westfalia Museum Camping-Box will be reunited in my June '53 kombi. This is one of four interiors that the Westfalia factory built in the late sixties for the museum. They are based on the prototype pictured in the 1953 sales brochure. This is the LAST barndoor Camping-Box to leave the factory.
