MotoeXotica Classic Cars has the perfect vehicle for those summer camping trips, a 1971 Volkswagen Westfalia Camper. Often called Westies, these vans with built-in campers still retain a huge following and have been one of the hottest classic cars of 2018! This one is a harder to find early type 2 bus that has the penthouse pop top! Plus it is finished in our personal favorite Sierra Yellow exterior which makes this one hot bus!

This particular example is originally from the Pacific Coast, Oregon and California, specifically, it benefitted from a fresh restoration. Dressed in new White over Sierra Yellow, (code L11H), with new clearcoat on top, the van’s paint and trim are in overall excellent order.

The glass panels on this late bay are in overall great condition, intact with no major cracks, chips or haze. The van’s lights are in excellent order while the van’s bodywork is solid and straight. The white bumpers fit tightly to the body, the engine bay is very tidy and the cargo bay is in great shape. This Westie has a new canvas top plus new window and body seals.

The van rolls on a fresh set of Hankook Optimo whitewall tires, size 185/75R14 at all four corners. The tires have lots of tread while the factory, vented steel wheel covers are in overall very good order.

Out back, there is a rebuilt 1.6L four-cylinder engine that has been bored out to 1.9L and has fewer than 1,000 miles on it since the rebuild. This motor really pulls strong and the extra power and torque is always very welcoming on a VW bus! The motor is mated to a four-speed manual transmission that shifts great!

Inside, the van’s tan front bucket seats are in excellent condition while the seats in the middle are in very good order while the contrasting black carpeting is in very good order. There’s enough space in the middle section to seat four adults or five children, where they will enjoy the new refrigerator. Other Westfalia features include a “penthouse” upper sleeping cot, a front child cot and a sofa bed. The headliner is in better-than-average order while the black, factory two-spoke steering wheel is in satisfactory condition. The black instrument panel is also in decent shape, while the inner door liners are in very good condition. This is a radio delete model and the wipers and horn are inoperable.

When Volkswagen transitioned to the bay-window or bread loaf model with large, single curved windshield and sliding side door, the Westfalia camper was modified to include an angled pop-top. This design provided space for a large child’s cot overhead and on later models, the pop-top was further enlarged to fit a full bed large enough for two adults.

The add-on side tent underwent a complete redesign. The new model (referred to in publicity materials as an Add-a-Room tent or a Motent) superficially resembles the late Split-windshield’s framed tent in general shape and colors but is otherwise quite different. For one, the tent’s frame is now external, with the canvas supported by elastic loops and plastic hooks, somewhat like a shower curtain. Instead of a single opening front panel, there is a zippered screen door in the middle of the front (side away from the bus) with a small awning flap that can be lowered for wind and rain protection. This tent also features a waterproof floor and the attachment method on the vehicle side results in a securely closable shelter (i.e., no more gap below the bus floor).

Standard Westfalia equipment included:

  • Various foldout seat arrangements for sleeping
  • Birch plywood interior panels
  • Laminated plywood cabinetry for storage
  • Ice box or cold-box
  • Sink (some models)
  • Water storage and pump
  • Electrical hookups
  • Curtains
  • Screened jalousie (Venetian blind) windows
  • Laminated folding table

Competition to this Volkswagen in 1971 included Chevrolet’s G-Series Van, Dodge’s B-Series Van, Ford’s Econoline Van and GMC’s VanDura.

If you desire a novel way to enjoy the Great Outdoors, if you’re a Volkswagen or van collector or if you happen to like German vehicles, stop by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today to look this VW Bus over.
