CALIFORNIAN WESTFALIA CAMPER
Animal, the Californian Camper, was imported into the UK by VWDU back in 2006. We knew as soon as we viewed him under the Californian sun that we had to have this bus – original-paint buses looking this cool don't come up for sale very often – so he was packed up and shipped over. Once back in Old Blighty, he was given a complete Vanwurksninterior overhaul and had his white upper bodywork repainted.
The interior spec, which includes everything you'll need to go camping, is as follows:
cooker, sink, compressor fridge (being fitted), table, rock and roll bed, restored pop-top roof with new canvas (the roof includes a bed so it sleeps 2 adults and 2 children). It has new flooring and upholstery, a 2KW petrol heater, swivel seat, rear child seat belts, new front seat belts, restored seat frames, colour-coded dash, stereo, 240-volt hook-up and bonus charger.
It also comes with new white wall tyres, painted wheels, new hubcaps, a recon 1641cc engine with twin carbs and a stainless steel exhaust system. And to send it on it's way it will have a 12 month MOT, 6 months of tax and a 3 month parts and labour warranty. All this bus needs are some new owners to enjoy it!
