I think that's the gist of it. Late July/August cutoff. My '72 has a manufacture date of July 31st 1971 and has a very low VIN 1121 for that year indicating it was an early bay in the run. My engine case stamp is only CB000076... poor tired old engine. Laughing

I found one of my busses siblings also incredibly enough.. owned by Jim @ Air Cooled Ranch. His '72 VIN ends in 974, also a Sierra Yellow and was on the same boat from Germany even!! Cool stuff. Shocked

And a video showing his '72 Sierra weekender here (nearer the end of the video):

Interesting, mine is earlier than those two. Someone commented on my thread that they had one in the 500s, it was exactly the same M-plate except destination and vin. All the same options, ours were both weekenders too. I wonder if they were all made for Westfalia first.
Here’s my M-plate

Hull 008 in the 1972 run posted in chat about 3 years ago.

I owned it in Buffalo in the 1970s but it might be a toaster by now

Just got my 1972 a few days ago, beautiful interior, fairly rust free. It’s the 447 72 produced and started production on July 31, 1971. I can prettt positively say it’s the earliest 72 here Very Happy it’s pretty awesome.

If anyone has a set of 72 only rear bumper side brackets they want to get rid of, please let me know. Thanks.

Glad I found this 72 only front tow loop in my dad's stash of parts.

1972 here as well, posted this in a another thread but have no answer - is this reversed hold down bracket for the OEM jack storage location a 1972 only thing? Or is it a non-walkthrough thing? Anyone know?


From what I am seeing in the manual, this bracket should be oriented 180 degress from what mine is:

Yes, it is probably because the cylinder heads are slightly shifted from side to side instead of straight across from each other.. has to do with where the rods fit/come off the crank and such. Asymmetrical
