The Volkswagen Bus convoy keeps rolling here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. Our latest arrival our of Colorado is a very correct and unmolested Sage Green 1978 Volkswagen Bush with the Westfalia Camper option. This example was produced in June 1978. The Westfalia-Werke Van Conversion Company converted the Type 2 VW Vans in to these awesome campers. Volkswagen described the Campmobile as “having a cottage that goes anywhere you want to go”. These icons are still nostalgic head turners today with a lot of fans whenever they head down the road or pull in to a campground.

Everyone loves a Westfalia. It makes people smile and dream, more than any other camper can, and its resale value is bulletproof. There aren’t many cars left that deliver this kind of freedom. Besides, any car, no matter how bad it is, that instantly makes you happy and stress-free behind the wheel; a car that makes you realize that all the tiny, insignificant worries of your stressful life are nothing more than cosmic dust is worth every penny.

Dressed in Sage Green (code L63H) with white roof and accents, this late bay’s paint and trim are in overall excellent condition. The glass is clear and intact, while the van’s lights are in similar condition, including its Hella headlights. The Loaf’s bodywork is straight , its engine bay is tidy and still retains a lot of original factory paint. The bumpers are in excellent order and handsomly match the wheels.

This bus rolls on BFGoodrich Precept Touring radials, 205/70R14 at all four corners. Each tire wraps around a white factory steel wheel topped with a chrome VW center caps. The tires and wheels are in very good order.

Out back is the correct 1970cc flat-four engine that still retains its original-spec Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection, and which featured hydraulic valve lifters, eliminating the need to periodically adjust the valve clearances as on earlier models. Nineteen seventy-eight was the first year for electronic ignition, utilizing a hall effect sensor and digital controller, eliminating maintenance-requiring contact-breaker points. As with all Transporter engines, the focus in development was not on power, but on low-end torque. The Type 4 engines were reportedly more robust and durable than the Type 1 engines, particularly in Transporter service. Buttoned to this motor is a four-speed manual transmission. This late bay has front disc and rear drum brakes. Underneath the bus you will find solid original floors and factory green painted wheel wells as seen in the accompanying photos

Inside, the upholstery is done Camping Green Yellow Plaid (code 34). The high-backed front buckets are in excellent shape, as is the green carpeting. The headliner is better-than-average and the original, two-spoke factory steering wheel looks great. The inner door panels are in good order, while the instrument pane is in very good shape, complete with its VDO gauges. In back, there’s a factory refrigerator, and sink along with extra seating and storage. Pull the carpet up and you will be very happy to see original factory green painted sheetmetal in great condition!

Campmobile features on this Westy include: Rear bench seat converting to double bed with locker below, swivel seat, clothes closet with vanity mirror, ceiling cabinet, linen closet, 12 volt ceiling lamp, 110-125volt AC electrical hook up receptacle, double outlets, master switch and circuit breaker, louvered windows, cabinate with stainless steel sink, 12v water pump, 7 gallon water tank, icebox, curtains, insulated paneled walls, fiberglass pop-up top, weather resistant canvas sides, screened window zipper flap, double bed mattress, front mounted spare tire, outside water hook up and tartan plaid interior upholstery.

Competition to this Loaf in 1978 included Chevrolet’s G10 Van, Dodge’s B-Series Ram Van, Ford’s Econoline Van and GMC’s VanDura.
