Privacy Camper: ’63 Volkswagen Panel Van Camper
This is a black-plate California Double-door Camper without any of those annoying windows to clean. If you watch any auction on TV you will undoubtedly see a 23-window vintage bus sail across the line selling for $80,000 or more. And that won’t even be a camper model. This one has so few windows it must be dramatically cheaper. But wait, it has a full kitchen and beds inside. Game on! We thought we knew a lot about VW Campers but we’ve never actually seen a windowless split-windshield version. Back in the day, VW dealers couldn’t get enough of the factory Westfalia versions so they commissioned conversions locally. So this might be one of those executed on a non-traditional panel van. It makes sense if you do a lot of camping in the city. This one has an updated 1600cc motor (all T1s had 1500cc standard) but retains the rest of the running gear. It had a repaint in the original color plus a modern sound system under dash (good) with AUX input. We like the roof rack too. The starting bid is pretty serious at $22,000.
