The Volkswagen Bus convoy keeps rolling here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. Our latest arrival our of Colorado is a very correct and unmolested Sage Green 1978 Volkswagen Bush with the Westfalia Camper option. This example was produced in June 1978.The WestfaliaWerke Van Conversion Company converted the Type 2 VW Vans in to these awesome campers. Volkswagen described the Campmobile as having a cottage that goes anywhere you want to go. These icons are still nostalgic head turners today with a lot of fans whenever they head down the road or pull in to a campground.
Everyone loves a Westfalia. It makes people smile and dream, more than any other camper can, and its resale value is bulletproof.There arent many cars left that deliver this kind of freedom.Besides, any car, no matter how bad it is, that instantly makes you happy and stressfree behind the wheel; a car that makes you realize that all the tiny, insignificant worries of your stressful life are nothing more than cosmic dust is worth every penny.
Dressed in Sage Green (code L63H) with white roof and accents, this late bays paint and trim are in overall excellent condition. The glass is clear and intact, while the vans lights are in similar condition, including its Hella headlights. The Loafs bodywork is straight , its engine bay is tidy and still retains a lot of original factory paint. The bumpers are in excellent order and handsomly match the wheels.
This bus rolls on BFGoodrich Precept Touring radials, 205/70R14 at all four corners. Each tire wraps around a white factory steel wheel topped with a chrome VW center caps. The tires and wheels are in very good order.
Out back is the correct1970cc flatfour engine that still retains its originalspec Bosch LJetronic fuel injection, and which featured hydraulic valve lifters, eliminating the need to periodically adjust the valve clearances as on earlier models. Nineteen seventyeight was the first year for electronic ignition, utilizing a hall effect sensor and digital controller, eliminating maintenancerequiring contactbreaker points. As with all Transporter engines, the focus in development was not on power, but on lowendtorque. The Type 4 engines were reportedly more robust and durable than the Type 1 engines, particularly in Transporter service. Buttoned to this motor is a fourspeed manual transmission. This late bay has front disc and rear drum brakes. Underneath the bus you will find solid original floors and factory green painted wheel wells as seen in the accompanying photos
