  1. Here’s mine, 73’ westy I’ve owned for just coming up 10 years in July. What a journey and it’s not stopped yet. :)

  7. That is one of the best tyre mounts I've seen - never been a fan of hanging an incredibly heavy lump on to the thin metal at the front nose.

    You sure that’s a 73?

    Wrong roof (73 is front hinge) and it has a rear hinge fibreglass top and the later full length roof opening in the steel to which a from hinge wouldn’t fit.
    Wrong fuel filler cap (73 should be a flap).

    It also have an engine inspection hatch but that might not be later only admittedly, I suspect that’s engine and market specific.

    Not taking away from a killer van, but major structural parts are later than 73.

  16. Could agree about the fuel flap, but aren't the for handles cross over? Roof could have been changed, might gave been a micro bus. M-plate would be interesting to see. Not that you should post it here on a public forum. Nice van, either way.

    Changing the roof is a bigger job than the side panel I’d imagine.....still a nice wagon either way.
     
  18. Yeah, lovely van, doesn't matter really, just curious. Dashboard might be a give aways. I've never come across a 73 with an engine hatch, must admit.
