Find of the Day: Time Capsule Type 2

By: Christopher Compton 

If you haven’t heard, Volkswagen announced earlier this week that the I.D. Buzz (a.k.a. the new Microbus) will go into production in 2022. What better way to celebrate this news than by highlighting a bus as our Find of the Day? And while we cautiously, yet excitedly hope that this all-new Type 2 will actually grace North American showrooms, we can’t help but wonder if a Westfalia camper is in the cards as well.
To start, this 1977 Volkswagen Westfalia camper is a true survivor with only 64,000 miles. Looking at the photos you can see this Westie is a real time capsule vehicle. Sure the body has a few dings and scratches, but these blemishes help show the history of the little van. The white fiberglass pop-top contrasts the orange paint well, and there’s cheeky pinstripe that runs around the body. And it’s easy to believe the stripe is real paint, not the stick-on vinyl common today.
Step inside the van and you’re instantly transported back to the seventies. You can almost smell the incense and patchouli. All the original Westfalia amenities are intact: the icebox, sink, clothes storage, and even the window curtains. But the element that tops this all off are the plaid seats. The color combo of green, yellow, black, and orange is like nothing seen today. VW, if you’re reading this, make sure to include a wild plaid interior in the new Microbus just like you’ve brought back the Clark plaid in the most recent GTIs. It’s only fitting
The seller has made a few updates to the van. It has new tires, new canvas side curtains for the pop top, and new window seals. The auction listing states the van runs and drives very well. It appears to be a turn-key driver.
If you haven’t noticed, bay window buses are quickly increasing in value. And this one is no exception. As of this writing, the current bid is $12,100. But if you’re looking for a classic camper that needs little to no work, this may be the one for you.
