Model information

Bay Window Westfalia Camper


One of the best colours on a Bay Window Camper has to be Taiga Green (L63H) and this particular Westy proves it. Spotted last year in VW Spares in Castledermot, this Bay Window was having a final check over by the team at VW Spares before its owners embarked on a European trip.

The 2L engine was running sweetly and was sure to give the owners a trouble free road trip. The Westy had been fitted out with some nice modern gauges that would monitor the health of the engine while they took in the views across Europe. Having spent its life crossing the highways of the USA, the relatively short run through Spain and France seems minor in comparison for this Dublin registered Westy.

This particular Bay Window was manufactured in Germany in August 1978 but wasn’t registered in the US until the following January as the Bay Window needed to be shipped to the US, customs cleared and then dispatched to its retailing dealer.
