Subaru engine runs excellent! New paint is a quality base/clear that should protect the bus for many years; however, there are rough areas of visible bodywork and paint imperfections in places which does not show well in pictures, etc. - this is a "drivers-quality" restoration. Dash has repairs and is rough in areas cosmetically - this is a 40+ year old vintage Westfalia and we cannot list every little imperfection, it has wear in places associated with its age, but overall a beautiful Westy that is ready to hit the road! Odometer is only 5-digits - so true mileage is really unknown.

Sold as-is, no warranty. We keep the license plates in Florida, so if you plan to drive the bus home you’ll need to bring a license plate; however, we have only driven the bus locally and cannot say how it will handle either way on a long cross country road trip, shipping is always recommended.
Don’t miss out on your dream Westy! Over $12,000 recently invested in parts alone. Please read payment terms before bidding and good luck.
