The popularity of Volkswagen's Type 2 models shows no sign of abating, and finding new homes for good examples is rarely a problem. This tidy-looking left-hand drive example hails from 1975 and is an original Westfalia 4 berth Camper conversion that started life in Italy. It was imported to the UK in 2007 and, following substantial refurbishment and a respray in the current livery of Orange and White by Mode Wheel Body Repairs, Manchester, the vendor obtained the car's first MOT in September 2008; at which time the mileage stood at 164,984km. Powered by a 1973cc engine with new twin carburettors, 'MBV 167N' has been dry stored but little used throughout the current ownership due to family circumstances. Now displaying 165,923 km it is being offered complete with new roof bellows, Panasonic stereo, all UK-inspired documentation, invoices for work done and old MOTs, plus one valid to April 17th next year.
