Meet Olive

  1. Hello

    I’ve been using this forum for a number of years now, but this is my first post. I’ve never needed to post before because I’ve always found the information I need. It’s a fantastic resource!

    So here’s my van – Olive.

    She’s a 1976 2000cc LHD Westfalia with the original interior. Refurb in 2014 with bare metal respray, engine overhaul, new pop top canvas, new exhaust, shocks, leisure battery, seat belts.

    We like the original features so no upgrades to the interior. Even got the old fridge working again from an old wiring diagram.

    Here’s some pics…



    Unfortunately, our time with Olive may be coming to an end so I’m hoping that some folks might help me by offering some suggestions for what she’s worth. She’s a very solid bus having lived in California for most of her life. Engine runs great. Has done 138k miles.

    Many thanks!

    Although.... judging by asking prices at the moment there has been a (probably temporary) uptick in values recently so would be a good time to sell a "ready to go camping" bus.
  5. Lovely looking bus.
    Shame if you have to part company with her just when camping is becoming popular again- but at least that makes it a good time to sell.
    Someone will get a beauty :)
