Description

1978 VW WESTFALIA CAMPER!! very rare GERMAN EDITION with Refrigerator! The bus (we call her beach gypsy) also has working sink and pre plumbed propane two burner stove! has brand new interior and Bluetooth stereo which connects to all phones! She has the larger engine(2000cc) and the freeway gearing so she can get up and go and has no problem on Hills. She can sleep up to 4 adults with 2 in the pop top and 2 on the bottom fold out Z bed! She has working electrical for city hook ups and lots of plug ins for phone and tablet charging! She has three point seat belts and power breaks. Bus has custom curtains, fold out table, and bug screen! Truly a great and unique time capsule! She gets tons of attention and lots of peace signs. She is mechanical perfect with all new fuel lines and breaks, plus a new clutch! She is stick, if you can’t drive stick this isn’t the bus for you! She is air cooled so keep her under 65MPH on freeway. No smoking and no dogs ! We do have surf and bike racks available for a small fee. All camping equipment including camp chairs, pots, pans, silverware, plates, lanterns etc is included.You will love her!! She has been all the way from Michigan to Malibu!!

No pets, no smoking, and car IS stick shift!! If you can’t drive stick this ain’t the bus for you! These old Vw buses should not be driven over 65MPH for extended time( more than a couple of hours), they will over heat and you will have to pull over for about 30 min and let it cool down. you should just cruise and enjoy the ride!

Chuck is extremely responsive and kind. We had a few little hiccups during the trip and he was so helpful. The bus itself is in great shape! Beautiful and clean! My boyfriend and I will return to rent this bus again.

The van was super cute (we used it for wedding photos) and runs well! Chuck was kind enough to explain how everything works. I don’t expect the manual transmission will be for everyone because of how heavy the clutch felt but spend a few days driving it and you’ll get used to it!
