1992 RARE WESTY CONVERSION
1992 VW T25 Westfalia Conversion
Water Boxer 2.1i engine
Painted in Tornado Red with colour-coded bumpers and roof
Original Westfalia interior with pop-top roof
Very rare 1992 K-Reg Von Model - only 2,500 were made (this is No1,102) and only 600 in Tornado Red and only 169 petrol versions
The panel work is very good as is the quality of the paint with only a couple of small, overall though, Chilli is in amazing condition.
He's been well looked after by his previous owner and with a 5-speed gearbox, 2.1 litre fuel-injected engine the drive is amazing - it's like driving a modern car with a VW look and feel.
Chilli's interior is an original Westfalia that looks tip top, and being VW-converted, they've thought of everything. It's got a cooker, sink, fridge, rock and roll bed, swing out table, captain's chair, loads of storage, 4-speaker stereo, 240v hook-up, 2nd battery system and petrol heater. There are a couple of small holes in the original canvas that we will be making watertight. The pop-top makes it ideal for standing up when cooking.
He drives very well, the steering is nice and positive with no wandering. The gear change is good as are the servo-assisted brakes. The engine is awesome that pulls through the gears nicely and has some extra poke to power you up those hills. We've been restoring, selling and servicing VW's for over 20 years now and we think this bus is up there in terms of how it drives, we's happily drive this bus every day.
With everything you need, why wouldn't you want to go camping in Chilli? And driving the way it does, he's perfect for a European adventure.
Phil is ready to go today and comes with a VWDU health check (call us and we can send you a copy).
