Camper Plus: ’65 Volkswagen Westfalia
The folks selling this Camper are just perfect VW Camper people. If they were older, they would surely have gone to Woodstock. Maybe they go to Coachella every year? Who knows. We actually had to edit one of the pictures since this is a “G” rated website. The sellers feel it necessary to have attractive female body parts in almost every picture to help capture our attention. But since we are car guys, original air cleaners and shift knobs will do.
