It is after careful consideration and with a heavy heart we have decided to sell "Klaus" our LHD late Bay 1975 Westfalia Helsinki 4 Birth. He has been in our family since May 2004 and is rarely used these days – hence we are parting with him.
We bought him from Southwest Splitz and are his 4th owner from new, first in the UK. We bought him to travel through Scotland for 6 months and he was our home as we trundled through the Highlands. We have made many memories in him, and made best friends in him, but it is time for someone else to experience the joy and freedom a van like Klaus can give you - remember life is a journey not a destination!
Colour orange and white
216k km (134k miles)
Next MOT due October 2018
Klaus includes all the original Westfalia interior with double rock and roll bed, a 2-ring gas hob, a heater, a fridge (currently not working on gas), a sink (with tap for cold water via electric pump), a wardrobe (with original mirror), dining table, curtains and canvas double rear hinged pop top. He is also double glazed (rare) making him cosy. There is gas (2 bottles), and electric hook up and a 3-pin plug in the cabin area. A removable table is also in the cabin area.
We still have the original Transporter Owner’s Manual, the Westfalia works Guarantees from 1975, the German Registration documents, various German service receipts and 2 original keys.
Extensive bodyworks restoration by award winning bodyworks specialists Retro Refinishers in 2010 (more photos available) and further body work done in 2017.
Full engine refurbishment in 2012.
Regular maintenance undertaken by VAG cars Cannock.
Currently in winter storage nice and dry and warm.
Klaus will be sold with Khyam awning (purchased with van for £600 – still in great condition), rear hinged pop top insulator from Proud to Pop (£165 new – only 5 years old) and 3 piece Just Kampers Thermo Mat Set
He has a DAB Radio, CD player and USB and AUX face off stereo (we still have the original radio cassette player if you’d like it!)
One USB and two 5-volt socket chargers in the front and one 5-volt charger in the back to charge all the kid’s (or your!) devices!
All service documentation and MOT’s since we have owned it.
Tow bar, used by us only with a tow bar mounted bike rack on occasion.
Basically, Klaus is all ready for his next adventure – all he needs is someone new to look after him and bring the beer!
