1965 Westfalia SO33 Subhatch for sale £29,500

Post by Newquay Westy »

Up for sale now due to emigration is our Westy, which I imported form the states 3 years ago. Its all up together now, all welding done and just needs a couple of bits to tidy it up like bottoms of the cargo doors (I have the panels). It has a rebuilt 1600tp on a rebuilt split box on RGB's. Original interior and comes with a BBT side canopy, tow bar and some other bits. Message me for more detail and pics if you are interested. Further detail added below. Priced at £29,500.

Hi Nick will post more pics. It is also just been listed on ebay with a load more detail. But work I would have done are repairs to the bottoms of both cargo doors (i have the panels). Plus some bubbling on rear nearside panel that didn't get cut out with the rest as we didn't have time. Apart from that the body is done, a few blemishes in the paint work as this is an old respray from the states. The original Light Grey paint is below this so could be taken back to original.
Interior has been refurbed except for a rear ceiling ply panel which has delaminated. It dosen't effect anything and is the original panel but could be replaced.

Sounds like you've pretty much covered the essentials. I returned yesterday from visiting my son in Valencia so unfortunately am now quarantined for 2 weeks. We are planning however to stay with friends near Penzance in September so will be in touch just in case your remarkable Westy hasn't found a new home by then.
Kind regards
Nick

New lower price of £32k, I am realistic about what this Westy is worth in the current market. But still need to sell so we can move on.
