One of my favorite campers, I had it as a desktop image for years. I love how the red just pops out of it. I think it was asked several years ago as to the color scheme but I forgot, is it an original Westy combo for 1956 including the wheels and press bumpers zuggbug? I have often thought of improving my boring pearl white Westy with it but I couldn't live with the criticism Wink

I love it when these amazing camper restorations come back up, even though it kills a big chunk of time b/c I will read the whole thing again.

Great to see it in use!

It is beautiful!

Hope that you still have it and use it

Thank you. I do still have it and we going camping in it. Not as often as I would like, but we do enjoy it.

This is the first time I have seen an early Westy with just the beltline painted.



Very possible your bus, maybe one of one? How cool would that be. Like the FCG Westy I have never seen another like yours either.
