This is a nice1976 Westy Tin Top which are getting harder to find. The motor is a 2liter fuel injected engine that was replaced according to the previousowner. Last week it got fresh oil and filter, air filter, and plugs. Iwill try to have my mechanic adjust the valves and timing this week. Heis retired so not sure he is available. The motor runs good once warmedup. Previous owner said it needed rear shocks. All the lights including the inside rear light work. License plate light needs replacement.
The owners before the man I bought it fromdid the interior. The previous owner started to strip the veneer offsome of the cabinets which I repaired with new authentic VW veneer l. Itis very brittle to cut so the edges are a bit rough and the materialmatches but looks newer. The tile floor and cushions look good, the backbeing sun faded but still presentable. The 2 front seats were redone byprevious owner and look good. There is a stain on the bottom of thepassenger side door panel. The headliner is in good shape except in themiddle it is sagging slightly. I would put a screw in the middle alongwith a quarter size washer. There is some surface rust under the rubbermat both passenger and driver's side. The windows are in good shape,missing a screen on one side which I may have a replacement frame. Thedriver's side window is stuck about 1/3 the way up. May need a regulatorbut I have not looked into it. There is a radio not hooked up to speakers. Previous owner hooked it up to a center channel.
Theexterior was painted about 8 years ago and shows wear. There is surfacerust in spots but this is mostly a very solid VW Bus. There is a hole(see photo) on one of the rockers. The entire piece can be purchased orrepair the hole. Small rust spot on passenger side by the wheel well.Underneath has surface rust as the undercoating has peeled. The raingutters have surface rust but are still solid. There is some surfacerust and light pitting underneath both gutters above the windows. Thereis surface rust and some pitting around where the engine seal collectedmoisture. It will need some cleaning up and a new engine rubber seal. The battery tray is a piece of wood as the metal one rusted through. There is a patch of surface rust and pitting under the front spare tirewhere water got trapped. The top is straight with some small spots ofsurface rust. The paint job was average at best. It is presentable butcould certainly use a paint job. There are original Westfailia badges onpassenger side. The sliding door works great.
TheBus comes with a swivel table kept inside in the spare tire cupboard.It comes with jack and tire removal tools. Original owners manual isincluded. The Bus will come with 4 extra VW rims and tires. Theprevious owner put the current rims and tires on. The rims have somesurface rust but could be cleaned up and painted to your liking. Theoriginal rims do not have hub caps which can be bought on most VW websites. Personally, I like the original wheels best.
Shipping is at your expense. I will meet your shipper.
