Summary
This Westy has been loved and proven to be a great companion vehicle for my adventures across the US over the last few years. It has always been garaged in California when not in use and the interior/exterior reflect these optimal storage conditions. I've owned the Westy for about 3 years now and spent hundreds of hours improving and restoring it which has been a great pleasure to me. The previous long-term owner was a college professor who used the vehicle sparingly with his wife, and so this Westy has been in good hands, gently driven and well-maintained throughout its history. The vehicle is in excellent mechanical condition with all recent services performed by the professionals at Valley Wagonworks in San Rafael, California. I would invite any potential owner to conduct a pre-purchase inspections as a means to verify.
I am reluctant to part with my VW, but I am currently living abroad and it's time for me to let it go.
I know the vehicle quite well and I am happy to answer any questions you might have.
