Description:

1978 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon Berlin

With much reluctance, I have decided to sell my 1978 VW Westfalia Berlin affectionately known as "Roslyn”. Roslyn has 95,000 original miles with 1,000 miles on new heads and German pistons, upgraded to 2.1 cc: I have all receipts for rebuild ($4,500) and most since new. Case was not opened during rebuild. The bus was imported to California and has resided there and in Arizona its entire life. Roslyn has been carefully driven and maintained and runs perfectly everything functions as it should achieving 19 miles per gallon on the highway. Over the last year and a half the following work has been completed:
New front glass and seals, two new door seals, upgraded headlights, new roof seal and canvas, powder coated wheels and wipers, new rare Koni shocks, new 6 ply Hancock tires, newly tested and clean fuel injectors, new wool OEM carpet set front and back, and new fuel lines.
No expense has been spared keeping Roslyn in excellent original condition and I wouldn't hesitate to drive her around the world. Many restored Westys fetch $30-$40,000 potentially with filler and restored for profit. Roslyn is an honest, original, rust free survivor with the original numbers matching fuel injected type 4 motor. The valves are self adjusting it has been very reliable. Theres a small dollar sized dent on the lower right front which is light enough it hasn't broke in the paint. The undercoating is still present in Photos under the bus. Rosalyn is stored indoors and has always been treated lovingly. Please consider my feedback an know that keeping it 100% is ultimately more important to me than this sale. This is a no reserve Auction! I need to sell for financial reasons if you purchased Roslyn for the buy it now price I'll throw in 200 watt Renogy solar system, Trucker fridge, Fiamma bike rack (never used),an EMPI complete fan driven oil cooler system from Bernie Bergman (not needed) and a brand new never used BusDepot awning. Please ask any questions. Good luck and happy bidding!
