Volkswagen Westfalia Campers were conversions of the Volkswagen Type 2 sold from the early 1950s through to 2003. Volkswagen subcontracted the modifications to the company Westfalia-Werke in Rheda-Wiedenbrück with production of Volkswagen camper variants continuing until as late as 2003 based on the Kombi then the Vanagon and finally, the Transporter.
This example is in generally good all round condition having been restored and customised by Kombi Klassics in Dorset. The mileage is showing 74,000 miles; however, this is unwarranted and there is little or no history or documentation available apart from the build sheet and the work carried out by Kombi Klassics. The striking colour combination, inspired by a Porsche of the same colour, matches the overall attitude of the van. The suspension has been lowered and a two litre Porsche engine coupled to a limited slip differential enhance the mechanics and chassis, finishing it to a very high standard. The original lifting roof section has been replaced with a full-length sunroof. The interior, a cross between Porsche re-trimmed leather seats and Danbury tourer bed/seats and kitchen unit, are in very good condition and, combined, create a funky and modern interpretation of this classic. Supplied with eleven months left to run on the MoT test certificate, it represents huge value for money and comes just in time for those big rollers at Sennen Cove…
