Combi Westfalia 1979 camper 80% in original paint
This combi, made in Germany, was delivered new to its first owner in Los-Angeles California in 1979 where it spent most of its life, hence its exceptional state of preservation. It was then sold to its second owner in Washington State who used it very little but was very careful to keep it in his garage and only take it out in good weather. We bought it from that person. So you could become its third owner.
It is powered by a Type 4, 2 liters engine with twin Weber 34 ICT carburettors, which we have checked and overhauled. The power and torque of the engine of this last year of Bay-windows, perfectly supported by the elongated ratios of its gearbox – long gearbox (code CP) – allows you to cruise quietly at a good speed.
All the security organs have been – of course – overhauled.
Upholstery and furnishings:
We have replaced the front seat upholstery retaining the original covers as well as the front cabin carpet and the door panels.
The rest of the upholstery is original and in very good condition, as are the curtains.
The canvas of the pop-up roof has just been replaced by a new one in the beige color coordinated with the bus.
All the furniture in the period Westfalia fittings are in perfect condition, both aesthetically and functionally.
The 1979 Westfalia layout offers 4 adult beds, a small sink with a new electric water pump and a 2-burner gas burner supplied by the LPG tank located under the passenger side frame and typical of American Volkswagen combis.
Sheet metal and painting:
When we bought it it was entirely in original paint. We had our bodybuilder take over the 2 corners of the rear fenders after replacing the 2 battery trays, the front floor, the rear panel on the driver’s side which had rubbed as well as the front face and took the opportunity to redo the bay of windshield.
All window seals are new or recent and in perfect condition.
