Hemmings Find of the Day: 1971 Volkswagen Type 2

Published in

Single family 1971 Volkswagen Type 2 for sale on From the seller’s description:

This Type 2 Westfalia camper bus is a very rare and unique bird indeed being owned by just one family its entire life and having just over 20,000 original miles from new! Sold new in 1971 through the Volkswagen dealer in Westport, Connecticut, “The Small Car Company”, to its owner in Weston, Connecticut where it would remain until today. Complete with all of its original books, service records documenting services at Volkswagen through its 15,000 mile service, and its original tools. It also still retains all of its original linens stored in the rear compartment. The interior is like brand new and retains all of its original components including its original refrigerator, sink, pop up camper roof and cot which still retains its original fringe on the outside for that touch of 1970’s style. On the outside of the bus it is covered with decals and stickers from its memories and travels with its original owner. Everything from old Lime Rock Park decals to old Volkswagen stickers and even some flower power decals in there somewhere. The original Small Car Company license plate frame is still on the bus! This is an absolute oddity and certainly stands out wherever it goes. Its extremely hard to find such a low mileage VW bus, especially one with only one owner since new. The stickers on the outside of the bus could always be taken off, but we believe they should remain not only because they make the bus even more unique than it already is, but because they are part of its history and identity.
