Today’s van is the last in the series of Jim’s cars. It is a 1969 Volkswagen Westfalia that Jim bought in 1970 from the original owner. It is powered by a 1600 cc with 57 HP. this Westfalia has seen many camping trips. The first was north to Canada, east across Canada, south to Boston, and back to Los Angeles. Before the Westfalia Jim had a new type 2 VW bus with a sunroof. The ”Low and Slow” on the rear engine compartment is Jim’s little joke. Jim had the Westfalia painted in the current colors about 2 years ago. These are great campers and increasing in value. This one is a member of the family!
The Westfalia Standard Equipment
- Various foldout seat arrangements for sleeping
- Birch plywood interior panels
- Laminated plywood cabinetry for storage
- Ice box or cold-box
- Sink (some models)
- Water storage and pump
- Electrical hookups
- Screened jalousie windows
- Laminated folding table
- Attached “pop up” tops with canvas/screen sides
- And more!!!
Jim collection also has a 1997 Suburban, a 2001 “hot rod” Lincoln LS and ….?
What a pleasure to meet Jim and seeing the love he has of his collection and his pleasure of sharing his family (cars). I will be seeing more of Jim.
