1973 VOLKSWAGEN WESTFALIA CAMPMOBILE This is the second time we’ve had this Westfalia and it has a wonderful history. We got it last time from the original owner (he was 91 years of age then) who bought it new through the Volkswagen Tourist delivery program. He and his wife picked it up in Hanover, Germany on May 25, 1973, drove it through Southern Europe before bringing it back to Glendale, California where it was garage kept its entire life. It was used for camping up until about 12 years before we got it. When the gentleman broke his hip it forced him to retire the VW but he kept it garaged at his home until February 2020. His decades long mechanic used to change the oil, do some maintenance as well as start it twice monthly for him. We have the original owners-manual, The VW Campmobile manual, The Manufacturers Statement of Origin and a related document that is a receipt for the Oval License plates to drive it outside of Germany. Even the California Pink Slip (Title) was issued March 30, 1974. The mileage indicated today is 140,337 and that was represented as original and would appear original but for obvious reasons on a 49-year old vehicle not guaranteed by us. We sold it to a couple here in Los Angeles who’d always had the Westie dream which was fulfilled but came to an abrupt end with an overseas job posting which is why we were lucky enough to get it back. Along the line the original owner had the Camper repainted in its original colour, #20B Brilliant Orange with White Westfalia Fiberglass pop-up roof. The seats, curtains and cushions were re-done in original style and looking materials. It has a clothes-closet with a vanity mirror. The Westfalia fiberglass top and pop-up canvas are fully functional. Westfalia Deluxe Edition amenities include a sink with 7-gallon water tank and icebox Hard to find original fold-out center front table.
