The exterior of this classic camper van is in decent shape, with a couple of minor parking lot dings on the rear bumper and sliding door. Aside from that, it has been in no accidents. There are some small rust spots, which have mostly been touched up. It has been kept in a garage for most of its 37 years, and it was driven on Vancouver Island for most of that time. I believe the previous owners purchased it in Calgary in the early 1980s. (We have all the maintenance records since it was new!)
The pop-top canvas is in excellent condition, as is the original upholstery and carpet, which have been protected with blankets and aftermarket carpets and mats since new; only the two front seats are worn, and they now have seat covers. The cabinetry is also in very good condition. There are no rain leaks. The fiberglass top could use a once-over with a pressure washer, but is otherwise in good shape.
The original 2.0L H4 gas automatic air-cooled engine starts and runs fine, but burns approximately 1/2 litre of oil per tank and has done so since we inherited the vehicle approximately 2.5 years ago. It starts easiest if you rest your foot lightly on the gas pedal, but the idle could probably be adjusted to compensate for that. It is under-powered, but has still managed to take us on trips to Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, Yukon, and Alaska. It cruises fine at 90 km/hr on the highway, but it won't win any races going uphill.
Average mileage has been 12.9 litres/100 km (18.2 mpg), nearly all highway driving.
The refrigerator runs on 120V A/C, 12V DC, or propane. The 2-burner propane stove works very well.
Includes a full size spare and two extra wheels with tires; all tires have lots of tread left.
This Westfalia seats and sleeps four people and has plenty of ground clearance for reaching remote camp sites.
The van is not currently insured.
Pricing it has been difficult because there are few like it for sale and lots of people have already expressed interest. We are in no hurry to sell and will accept the best offer.
