Up for sale is a clean 1972 VW Westfalia Camper Bus.  This bus lived its life in Wyoming, and has been sitting since the early 90's.  We rescued this bus, cleaned it top to bottom, put some brand new tires on it, and now we are offering it to someone who can take it to the next level!  We haven't tried to get the bus running, but the motor is complete, and it appears to have run when parked.  

The bus doesn't have a lot of rust- a pinhole in the front floor, some rust in the lower rocker on the driver's side, etc.  The front looks like it was repaired a long time ago and there is some cracking.  The top canvas and cot material need to be replaced.  The bus rolls and steers, but doesn't have brakes, or an ignition key.
All of the hard to find interior is there- the sink, jump seat, all seatbelts, etc.  The bed folds down and works great!  Icebox is clean and ready to use.  

This bus does need work, but will make someone a great little van!

International buyers are welcome.  Although the bus does not have a title, I can assist in getting one for $500 extra, and this process takes an additional 3 weeks.  
We can also store the van until shipping arrangements are made.  

Payment via PayPal, bank wire or deposit, or cash in person only please!

$500 non refundable deposit due upon "Buy-It-Now".  Bus is located in Loveland, Colorado, USA.

Any questions, or overseas buyers can call or text +1 970-775-3437

Volkswagen to add 50k jobs by 2018

Thu, 04 Apr 2013 08:00:00 EST

Volkswagen still has its eyes set on becoming the top global automaker by 2018, and to get there, it's apparently going to need more boots on the ground. Automotive News Europe is reporting that VW is looking to increase its staff by 50,000 over the next five years - an increase of nine percent - which does not include an increase in its US dealer network.
According to the report, a majority of the growth will come from China where the automaker is also looking to double its production capacity in the same time frame. The Volkswagen Group is already expected to rival General Motors for the top sales spot in China this year, and such a rapid expansion in the region could make a good springboard for sales increases in other countries.

VW going turbo-only in 3 to 4 years

Wed, 18 Sep 2013 14:31:00 EST

This really was a matter of when, rather than if. Volkswagen will apparently be the first manufacturer to phase out naturally aspirated engines in favor of turbocharging its full slate. VW is kind of responsible for ushering in this push towards small-displacement, turbocharged engines that's taken the industry by storm. When it dropped its direct-injection, 2.0-liter turbo in the 2005 GTI it demonstrated that strapping an iron long to an engine can enhance the powertrain as a whole. VW made fuel economy gains, while also giving a linear, non-laggy turbo experience that it has replicated, model-after-model, to this day.
Speaking with The Detroit News, Volkswagen's executive Vice President of Group Quality, Marc Trahan, told the paper that, "We only have one normally aspirated gas engine, and when we go to the next generation vehicle that it's in, it will be replaced. So three, four years maximum."
Really, it's hard to get teary-eyed about either of these engines going away. VW has access to smaller powerplants that could easily match the performance of the 2.5 five-cylinder and the 3.6 V6, while gobbling up less fuel and providing a better driving experience. What we are sad about is that a similar statement about the extinction of NA engines came from the Vice President of Powertrain Engineering at Ford, Joe Bakaj. We'd certainly get teary-eyed over a world without Ford's excellent 5.0-liter V8.

Porsche 911 with VW turbodiesel prepares for LeMons assault

Fri, 21 Mar 2014 18:03:00 EST

LeMons racing is a wonderful example that setting limits can actually breed creativity. The series mandates that all entries must cost $500, not counting safety equipment, and that cap forces teams to be ingenious in how they build a racecar. Take for example this diesel-powered Porsche 911, which its creators have dubbed Ferkel the Nein-11, that will be racing in the Sears Pointless race this weekend in Sonoma, California.
This Frankenstein combines a 911 chassis that was originally bought just for its European powertrain and a Volkswagen TDI diesel engine mounted in the rear. After deciding the shell could still be of some use, the team decided to go racing. "We began brainstorming what replacement drivetrain to use for maximum offense and there was really only one answer: a diesel," said Philipp von Weitershausen, one of the team captains, to Jalopnik. They bought a 1998 Jetta TDI on the cheap and started figuring out a way to hack the engine into the bay. To pay respect to the donor, the VW's trunk was highly modified (and drilled) and grafted onto the back of Ferkel.
This team isn't a newcomer to LeMons. Its last car was a classic VW Beetle with a Subaru engine and dual controls, named Ferdinand the Bug, which could be driven from the left or right side. It's quite a sight.
