88,000 mile Westfalia with many thousands of dollars of parts and countless labor in 2011 including a photo album and file of receipts and owner documentation from 1977. This bus was never abandonded and then restored. It has been in light use since new and wore it's original paint until 2011. It has since only been used for one overnight and less than 200 miles total.  I have included two pictures to show the bus before it recieved the following:
new paint

bodywork with three small metal patches
new windshield 
new canvas top with screens and top moulding
four new tires
new muffler
Fuel system: rebuilt tank ($550), new sending unit, grommets, new pump, filter, clamps, remove and clean injectors, new injector seals, flush, clean, & test entire system.
Ignition system: wires, plugs, alternator belt, battery, vacuum hoses, clean & adjust points, check timing.
Odds & Ends: sandblasted and painted rims (need touch up now), windshield seal, hoses, new OEM taillight housings and lenses, GE headlight bulbs, 2 side markers, window crank handles, 3 Westfalia OEM cabinet handles, restuff front seats, new carpeting, remove and wash all upholstery except rear bench which was carpet cleaned in place, rubber front floor mat (under carpet), and God only remembers what else. 
This bus starts up immediately and runs strong. Clutch, transmission, linkages, brakes, steering all work great. 
Currently the blinkers and four way flashers do not work. The heater controls are also non functioning. Oddly, It only sometimes drips a small amount of oil.
I also have an original Westfalia tent that IS NOT included in this auction.  I wasn't sure if the next owner of the camper would be interested in one. I timed the auction to end shortly after the auction for this bus.
This auction is open worldwide. Bidders with 90% or less positive feedback or no feedback WILL be deleted unless you contact me BEFORE bidding.

VW promises 7-seat CUV for America in 2016

Mon, 13 Jan 2014 08:58:00 EST

On the eve of the Detroit Auto Show, Volkswagen chief executive Martin Winterkorn has confirmed the imminent arrival of a new crossover. The model, previewed at the same show last year by the CrossBlue concept pictured here, will be unique to the North American market when it arrives here in 2016. The new three-row, seven-seat crossover is part of an ambitious expansion plan on the part of Volkswagen and Audi in North America, where the two brands aim to sell a million vehicles by 2018.
That's a mighty big increase over the 600,000 vehicles which the Volkswagen Group sold here last year, but it's moving in the right direction: That number is already a 100-percent increase of what it sold here just five years ago. At that rate, VW should have little trouble meeting its goals, particularly with the arrival of the new crossover and the introduction of Golf production at its assembly plant in Puebla, Mexico. Read the full statement below for more.

GM outsold VW globaly in first quarter, Toyota reports numbers next week

Thu, 18 Apr 2013 16:03:00 EST

General Motors released its first quarter sales figures this week, reporting that it sold 2.36 million cars and trucks worldwide. That figure represents an increase of 3.6 percent when compared to the same period last year. GM's growth was attributed to many factors, including global Cadillac sales that were up 26 percent and Chevrolet posting a one percent increase over last year (this marked Chevy's tenth straight year of record global sales).
Volkswagen came in just behind GM, as the German automaker reported global sales from January through March at 2.27 million vehicles, an increase of five percent when compared to last year. While that number was strong, VW is cautioning that markets outside China and the US, such as those in Europe, are becoming a challenge as economies falter.
Yet to report sales is Toyota, current holder of the global world sales crown (the Japanese company sold 9.75 million cars last year, against 9.29 million sold by GM and 9.1 million vehicles sold by VW). Even though GM and Toyota both say they don't care who sells the most units, it is unquestionably a strong bragging point and sales equate to revenue. That said, Toyota will report its first quarter numbers next week.

VW's Winterkorn tells 20,000 staffers of big cost-cutting plans

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 15:42:00 EST

During a gathering of 20,000 Volkswagen Group employees at company headquarters in Wolfsburg, Germany on Wednesday, CEO Martin Winterkorn dropped a bombshell. The boss stated that the automaker isn't operating efficiently enough and admitted the company needs to radically start cutting back to raise its profit margins. To right the ship, Winterkorn has proposed killing off less profitable models and spending less on research and development.
According to Reuters, Winterkorn wants to raise the VW brand's profit margin from about 2.9 percent in 2013 to a target of 6 percent. To make that possible, his plan amounts to increasing cost cutting until Volkswagen reaches about 5 billion euros ($6.7 billion) per year to get things back in order. "Over the short-term, we urgently need more efficiency and higher profit," the CEO said during his speech, according to Reuters.
However, Winterkorn can't make these decisions unilaterally. Volkswagen's works council also has a seat on the supervisory board to represent laborers, and it isn't likely to take the proposed cuts sitting down.
