1972 Volkswagen Type II Campmobile/Westfalia 90 Opposing 4 from North America
My love affair runs deep!!!
Having some brake issues... working on them now.
About to replace the fuel tank & all fuel lines.
Overall, my "baby" is pristine! Owned by a former client that became a friend (a retired doctor & his wife). This camper was my Christmas to myself 2 years ago (had been looking for one for about 8 years). They bought it new in '72 and it has been from Alabama to New Foundland 3-4 times, across Canada several times, & they could not really count the number of times it has been across the U.S. & now she is MINE! :)
The camper is 98% original with the interior completely original, and looking like it is maybe 2 years old. I am about to start a complete rework of all the electrical parts as needed, and hope to order and install a new top (front and rear) along with a new canvas.
If you want to be able to "get back to nature", these vehicles are the way to go. Have run across deserts, over mountains (at a steady pace ;) ) and forded "streams" up to 32 inches deep.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
