1973 T2 Late Bay Westfalia Camper 2 litre
Current Owner - for the last 32 years
The bus has been a defining part of the family for 32 years and the provider of nearly all family holidays as well as a work horse and of course, just being a cool set of wheels.
The bus is in excellent condition inside, out and underneath and passes MOT’s with praise rather than advisory notes. I have masses of documentation including a recent Type 2 Detectives full health check (most points have been acted on).
1973 - so Tax free and MOT free- if you want to apply for it.
2 Litre Type 4 engine
Twin webers - small bore as I wanted reliability over the old Solex and not performance.
Recent complete brake system - discs, drums, cylinders and pipes.
Steering box, track rods and bushes refurb.
Fuel pipes replaced to latest standard.
Oil Temperature gauge
Bilstein shocks all round have improved ride considerably
Lowered just a little.
Porsche replica wheels
Empi Quick shifter
Powerful but discreet amp
The original, classic Westfalia trim - it is incredibly durable.
Huge full width rock and roll bed - the best place in the world to be.
Full width roof bed fits two children snugly
Cab bunk if you have even more children (up to 10 yrs old)
I have the fridge and kitchen sink unit - but prefer the extra space without.
Roof canvas is ageing, but I prefer the original orange to a beige replacement.
Recent Vango Air tent awning will come with the bus
This bus has been garaged for the last 12 years. I have always attended to everything that the bus has needed. However it is a 47 year old vehicle so you will need to understand that it is a case of continual maintenance and improvement.
Owning this bus has been a wonderful experience and the VW camper world is a joy to be part of. I will miss the cheery waves from other drivers and admiring glances from pedestrians.
