1972 VW Westfalia
The quality of this bus is hard to match. The lack of rust is unheard of on a VW, even for something half its age.

First delivery in Spain. Service logs from Europe, Mexico, Arizona, etc. Spent most of its life in dry climates in the American SW before moving to Seattle in 2009, where it has always been stored under cover or garaged.
This was originally a 1700cc Type IV dual port powered bus which has since been converted to watercooled with minimal invasion.
Rare SO 72/6 Westfalia campmobile interior.
No ice box, fridge, stove, propane.
