    It appears they are rarer then I thought. I did guess at about 60 but we seem to have about 7. Blimey the price of front hinged late Westys will rocket now!
  9. 8!


    Built August 1972, registered 1st January 1973.

  13. Ahhh Arley. One of my favourite places. I remember as a tiny kid getting the ferry from that very spot before they built that monstrosity of a footbridge...

  14. This thread started before we bought ours 2 years ago - so not seen it before.
    So here's ours out camping last week - built in May 73 - first registered August 73.

  19. This is my Westy. Born on 24th August 1972. Bought it in January and already done 1000 miles. image.jpeg

    Bought it from the original owner so has lots of history. The tent is a Motent which is in pretty good condition and we discovered this weekend it's pretty water-tight.
