We purchased this vehicle directly from the original owner, who is now 79 years old. This is what he wrote me:

I have an 1987 Westfalia GL full camper that I bought new. It now has 112,000 miles on it. I have been trying to keep it going as each part seems to wear out. It has now worn me out and there are no VW people here (in Mississippi) that will even be sympathetic. It quit one more time last week when the ignition system failed and this seventy-nine-year-old is ready for it to go. It has never been in a salt environment and has not been in an accident. I am going to call the Kidney Foundation and tell them to come and get it.  Thanks,

We purchased this Westy for $3800, delivered—all the way from Mississippi. We are marking that up a whopping 20%, which is $770. So, the starting price for the vehicle itself is only $4620.This Westy has all original paint. That means: No collision history, no covered-up rust anywhere—which is weird for a vehicle from Mississippi. It goes to show you: How a vehicle is kept can be more important than WHERE it is kept...
