Microbus
Volkswagen's forward-control series of rear-engined commercial trucks gained a following as practical and economical delivery vehicles in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Volkswagen also offered passenger versions, which were popular family vacation vehicles in the 1960s.

The ultimate Volkswagen travel truck in this era was the Westfalia Camper. These factory-designed and authorized campers were beautifully constructed and considered a first-class way to travel in Europe and in the United States.

This Westfalia is a 1960 model, the very first year of manufacture. Amazingly, it is completely original inside and out, and it has travelled fewer than 2,200 miles since new. The first owners ordered this Camper as a United States spec vehicle. They took delivery in Germany where they toured the countryside for six months and then shipped the vehicle back to the United States where it was used sparingly for camping.

The current owner purchased the Camper from the first owner's daughter. It is equipped with side tent, camp stove, ice box, bread box, shot glasses, wash bin, child cot and the original Westfalia sloped roof rack.

No auction information available for this vehicle at this time.
