1972 Early Bay Window Westfalia Pop-top • Sale pending
This van is being offered in 3 stages of restoration and is currently going through stage 1, which means all necessary welding and rust removal has been carried out and replaced with new and genuine VW panels.
Stage one - £24,000
The van will be fitted with: new inner sills, rear corners, battery tray, outriggers, jacking points, tailgate, 2 new front doors, imported American rust-free engine lid, new wheels and tyres and new brakes.
The van will be stripped down to a rolling shell and repainted inside and out to show standard. The inside and top half will be painted in its original colour of L90d pastel white and the bottom half will be painted to the new owners' personal choice.
With the exterior of the van painted to show standard we will then pay attention to the interior. The first stage is to fully insulate the van with sheep's wool, which keeps it cool in the summer and warm and toasty in the winter. We will then fit a full set of new, custom-made door cards, upholstered in a colour of your choice along with new flooring which again you will be able to choose the style and colour.
The van currently has a 1600cc aircooled engine and a manual gearbox which will come with a 3-month parts and labour warranty.
Stage two - £28,000
This stage sees the van fully restored with all the above work completed plus the added bonus of having a brand new, zero miles, 1600cc aircooled engine fitted. All of the components of this engine are new including tin wear, oil cooler, alternator, carburettor, fuel pump, heat exchangers, inlet manifolds, Bosch HT leads and anything else you can think of. To top this off we're also offering a 2 year, unlimited mileage warranty.
Stage three - £call for details
The final stage of the restoration would see the van being fitted with a brand new interior. We have a good range of interior options available for you to choose from which will include a rock n roll bed (a 3/4 or full bed), fridge, cooker, sink and plenty of storage options. We can also fit any upholstery design in leather, vinyl or cloth, the choices are endless.
If you are interested in the interior option, please feel free to give us a call and we'll be more than happy to discuss it with you, including the price options.
