Go Westfalia: ’78 Volkswagen Westfalia Camper
This is one groovy VW Camper. This isn’t the darling of the Woodstock Generation but a camper for the more mature country vacationers. It is a rare, 1-owner Camper with a scant 60,000 miles. It is said to be totally original right down to the travel stickers that line the canopy top. The interior looks like it was cared for by an adult and as it turns out, the camper has been owned by the seller’s Aunt who is ailing and can no longer enjoy the benefits of self-contained travel. Mechanically, these cars are pretty much bullet-proof. The 1978 2.0 featured hydraulic valve lifters, eliminating the need to periodically adjust the valve clearances as on earlier models. The 1975 and later U.S. model years received Bosch electronic fuel injection as standard equipment. 1978 was the first year for electronic ignition, utilizing a hall effect sensor and digital controller, eliminating maintenance-requiring contact-breaker points. As with all Type 2 engines, they were designed for robust low-end torque and not brute horsepower. The Type 4 engines were considerably more robust and durable than the Type 1 engines, particularly in Transporter service. So not only will this Westie coddle you with original appliances and plaid seats, it should get you there is comfort and relative safety. The asking price is $28,000. Click here to contact the seller.
