Seller description

Restoration of 1978 Volkswagen Westfalia

I bought this bay window
bus 5 years ago and my dream was to restore it and sell it as a
project that i would sink my hands and mind into. I have been
maintaining it religiously since the day i bought it but the real
restoration process started in October of 2018 and finished August
2019. Bellow you can find all the details you need to know about this
beautiful bay window bus.

27th 2019 automotive appraisal

Last week an automotive appraiser from Victroria came
over to Salt Spring to determine the value of the finished westfalia.
If you'd like to see the full appraisal i will send it to you via
email. Here are some of the quotes from appraisal.

body work that has been done to the vehicle is far above the normal
industry standards.”

pictures cannot possibly show the quality of this vehicle. This is a
vehicle that must be seen in person to see just how well the vehicle
is done.”

was nothing overlooked when the work was been done on the van. The
object was to make sure that this van would be in better condition
than when it was originally built in 1978”.

it was 41 years ago that the vehicle was build, the materials that
were used to build the vehicle are so much better than they were
then. The rust protection alone has come so far that this unit can
definitely stand the weather and still look good”.

fit and finish has been redone and there has been may hours making
sure that this is better than when it was originally built”.

van has been completely redone mechanically. This van is better
mechanically than it was when it was first built. This is basically a
brand new 1798 Westfalia using better materials than when it was
first built.”

is the nicest example of this model that i have seen in many years. I
sold the 1978 new and this one is so much better in all ways.”

“I have
been doing the research and there are a number of similar 78's for
sale that have been redone, however I do not believe the finished
vans are as well done as Mr. Crystal's”.

The engine was rebuild last month and has less than
---100--- Kms on it. That's right, not 100,000, 100 Kms.
The rebuild was done by the Volkswagen mechanic that works on every
VW bus in the community that has the most VW buses per capita in
Canada. This German born mechanic is an absolute pro and did an
outstanding job. This bus is his baby. He says that it should be at
