1973 VW TYPE 2 WESTFALIA GREEN/WHITE
Olive is an original 1973 Westfalia Continental Volkswagen Camper Van. Her interior is in outstanding condition and fully functioning, just as it’s creators intended back in the 70s, which is still a great layout to this day. We have specifically chosen the Westfalia as it is renowned in VW circles as being the best and most desirable interior conversion available. It also allows a full width bed downstairs, which we believe is one of the most important parts of a campervan, rather than the smaller, ¾ width beds, commonly seen in other conversions, which we think are just too small, full stop. There’s also a full pop top for standing room and to provide a comfy bed for a couple of smaller children up to around 11 years old or so. Don't forget you can also add a drive-away awning that can sleep a couple of people in too.
Olive has recently undergone an extensive restoration and is finished in a beautiful pea green colour, making her a quite unique VW camper. She gets loads of looks and compliments wherever she goes. Her looks are complimented with a great set of really shiny moon disc hub caps, which give her a cool, retro look. The main difference with Olive is her larger, 2 litre air-cooled engine (with twin solex carbs, electronic ignition and an uprated, stainless steel exhaust, for those in the know...) - in laymans terms, you get a bit more oompf from this one!
On top of the original features, there are also some modern improvements on board, including a leisure battery, a 600w invertor, 240v mains hookup, and a modern Sony stereo with bluetooth, USB, line-in and hands-free calling. There are two, three-point seat-belts in the rear, which can also accept child car seats if needed. Also installed is a phone holder on the dash and a cigarette lighter socket, so you can easily play music or even use the sat-nav on your Android phone or i-Phone if you’re not daring enough to navigate the old school way...
