Original “Westfalia”-style Hippy van owned by a lovely free spirit for decades. Her boyfriend borrowed the motor for a sand rail and blew it up. He brought back the original motor, as well as a wrecking yard replacement (more modern year ) but he never put the car back together again. (It comes with parts.) The seller remembers her many fond adventures in the camper-van but is scaling down her worldly goods. The paint appears original and it is extremely straight. There is no evidence of a prior collision. The car is very solid even in the engine bay and underneath. The floor and fenders are solid and though it certainly needs an entire rebuild, it is a great palette to start with. Essentially as original, but having well endured the rights of age, its experience adds to the “vibe” and patina. A true, natural survivor, this camper van deserves to go back on the road. Sold to benefit a living estate, the ultimate cult classic in the most surreal and often remembered color. Give it some love and get back in the groove.
