It's time to re-live some memories or make some new ones in this 1978 Volkswagen Bus Westfalia Camper. It's a turnkey classic camper that's just begging for a road trip.

If you're looking at this van, you better be prepared to make some new friends. That's because the fun of a VW Bus is all about the character and camaraderie of ownership. The Type 2 (the original Beetle was the Type 1) used to be a symbol of the counter culture, and it only gets better when you can get away from society and camp out under the stars. The two-tone minty green and cream is the perfect color combo to represent the 1970s, and the straightness panels tell you that any time on the road has been pretty easy-going.

The driver gets all the right comforts with a recently re-covered high-back bucket seat. Plus, there's a large steering wheel, a gearshift within easy reach, and new carpeting. But the true luxuries are all behind this. These are terrific camping machines, and this one is an especially nice home away from home with new wood cabinets and trim. It has the right comforts such as a dual burner stove and sink. When it comes time for sleeping, not only do you have a sofa bed in the cabin, but also the iconic pop-up roof for comfortable camping. It's an amazing setup that we know has you thinking about how to use it for everything from campgrounds to the next car show.

This second-generation Bus comes with plenty of engineering improvements. First of all, the 2000cc motor in this one is more powerful than anything available in the first generation. And the VW flat four motor is one of the most economical and robust powerplants to enjoy. In fact, this one is well maintained with recent investments that include a newer Bosch ignition coil, plugs, wires, and cap. That's why this well-kept example fires up nicely and runs strong. But one of the easiest ways to get the best engine performance in these vans is to master the powerband of the four-speed manual transmission. Another reason why the 2nd-gen Type 2s are desirable is because the suspension was also greatly improved. The original vans utilized a modified Beetle setup, but this Bus was built to better handle the unique weight and height of the vans.

This is the classic that can do it all – get you there, give you something to show off, and then offer home-like comfort. Don't miss this deal, call today!
