!974 VW Westfalia camper. Like meeting people? Everybody wants to talk to you when you show up in this!

This van was in pretty good condition when I got it some years ago now and just about everything worked except the engine which had serious rod bearing problems. The only corrosion was in the battery trays, it has the house battery set up, 2 batteries, with minimal of surface rust, mainly on the driver’s side for some reason. The chassis and floor, front and back, were and are rust and corrosion free. All the chrome is original except the rear view mirrors from a later model.
Included are the original Westfalia, recovered, stool and the seat/storage box that sits between the front seats and an original tent. Even the heater blower works and produces heat

Small blemishes on the bodywork due the time it’s spent in the garage
The tires, though in good shape, need upgrading to higher rated tires
Transmission will jump out of reverse under load, sadly not an uncommon fault

Coming close to retirement, have a boat and another van to fix (or sell if anyone is interested in a project), and wife wants to park in the garage, very selfish. So this is my first attempt at letting the good people of the Atlanta area know that it’s available.

If you have questions please ask by e-mail initially to give me a chance to screen out the you know whos and the you know whats. Trying to be polite!!

Other van, by the way, 1976 Volkswagen Westphalia complete but disassembled from New Mexico, no rot anywhere, solid as a rock.
