I am looking to sell my Westfalia after seven years of ownership. It is a very regrettable sale, but he has barely been used for the previous two years and it doesn't feel right that he is not being enjoyed by somebody.
Being a 1968 bay window, it is a rare bus and gets a lot of attention when out.
I’m in no rush to sell. There are a few little jobs I was planning to do over the winter (refurbish the wheels, new roof canvas and replace the speedometer cable - it’s jumping a little), but other than that the bus is in almost perfect condition and these few things do not prevent the vehicle being used, they're just to keep him looking his best.
As far as I am aware the bus is very original however, the engine has been replaced with a 1971 engine. The only modification I have made is an upgraded distributor with electronic ignition (with updated coil).
The bodywork is in fantastic condition and finish in velvet green, which in my opinion really suits the vehicle. I have photos from the restoration, which was carried out before I took ownership.
Since purchasing, the bus has always been garaged and looked after. I have covered approximately 4K miles, but over the last three years barely any at all.
Please feel free to call with any questions, I’ll do my best to answer them, however I’m no expert, just an enthusiast.
The previous owner did a really in-depth video of this vehicle, which can be found on YouTube and searching for 1968 VW Westfalia.
Vehicle is located in Derbyshire
