1973 Westy, 41K OG Miles

1973 Westfalia Camper Bus, 41,000 Original Miles, Automatic!

Here is a true time capsule survivor in exceptional original condition. This Westy was purchased new at the Bill Barry Volkswagen dealership in West Hartford, Connecticut, 41 years ago, and never really left that area. The original owner took very good care of it, always garaged it, and was the kind of consciencious owner who put plastic covers on the couches in his house! That kind of attention and respect for his possessions has gone a long way in keeping this Bus as beautiful as it remains today. It has averaged just 1,000 miles of driving per year!

The body is in very nice condition, original paint, straight, very dry, and the undercarriage still displays the original undercoating, too. The bumpers are very clean, the floors are unbelievably nice, and overall it is one of the nicest unrestored Bay Westys I can recall seeing in quite a long time.

The interior is incredibly nice, as original as they come, and most of the areas look to have virtually no use or absolutely no use at all. You can see that some areas have never been dirty, the original cushions look like brand new, the front rubber floor mat shows next to no wear, and the dash is one of the cleanest I've seen as well. The inside of the refrigerator, inside the cabinets, and the rear luggage shelf beneath the cushion look very much like brand new still! The front seats are still wearing their original upholstery which is in very nice condition with just a few small holes in the driver's seat.

Mechanically it is bone stock, runs and drives well, and just had a mild professional servicing at a Volkswagen dealership including having the carbs rebuilt. The brakes are good and although the vintage Dunlop radial tires are still showing the majority of their tread, it might be best to replace them due to their age, especially if you intend to drive the Bus often. The Bus is a factory automatic transmission as well which is a bit rare.

This is your chance to land one of the nicest and lowest original mileage survivor Bay Window Westys I've seen in a long while. Thanks!


Please note that this Westy Camper is located in Glastonbury, Connecticut.
