There’s not a speck of rust on this beauty.
Anyone with a heart loves the Volkswagen Type 2 or the Transporter. It represents unbridled freedom. No, you’re not going to be screaming down the track, but you can roam wherever roads take you. That legacy of carefree wandering is partly what makes this 1979 Volkswagen Westfalia Camper being sold by Raleigh Classic Car Auctions so compelling.

There’s so much to be happy about this gem in company’s current vehicle lots. It has been owned by two people since new and cared for lovingly. The vehicle shows 46,108 miles and that seems like an accurate figure. After all, the original Mexico Beige paint and brown plaid interior look amazing, providing an accurate depiction of what this vehicle looked like when it first rolled off the dealer lot.
Around back is the factory-original 120ci four-cylinder engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. That means great fuel economy and plenty of fun times on the open road.
You also get to revel in the cool Westfalia options added to this camper, so it’s ready to take on a long trip. Among them is a double bed pop-up, child’s cot, and a swiveling front seat. The cabinet located behind the driver’s seat contains a sink, 7.5-gallon water hook-up, gas range, and storage. You also get to use other hidden storage compartments, a refrigerator, dinette table, water hook-ups, and an exterior electrical hook-up to suit your needs.
Along with all that, this vehicle comes with a few items of documentation like the original owner’s manual, maintenance booklet, warranty booklet, and sales brochures. Finding one of these classic Volkswagens in this clean of condition is difficult, especially with the original paint and interior.
If you’re interested in making this VW yours, it will be auctioned on Saturday, so you need to register to bid before then. Contact Raleigh Classic Car Auctions with questions you might have about this vehicle or the bidding process.
