Before I begin I would encourage all serious buyers to call me directly at 517-425-0129. Although this is a 7 day auction I reserve the right to end auction early.

You are bidding on a 1971 Westfalia camper, some would argue this might be the best year VW bus. With its unique tail lights, first year for disc brakes, and reliable type 1 engine with plenty of aftermarket support for parts and repairs. Up until a few years ago this has been a California van, extremely dry and rust free example. Perfect floors and frame. Much work has been done to ensure its reliability and performance, truly a turn-key classic. Description as follows:
