Up for auction is my 1977 Volkswagen Westfalia camper. affectionately known as "Yoda". in the family.  This camper was originally sold at Triangle VW. in Durham. North Carolina. on August 20th. 1977.  With the sale comes the original warranty book (got a little wet. so condition is fair). owners manual in great condition. stove operating instructions. and the original window sticker.  The one thing I will say about this fun vehicle. is that it is complete.  It comes with the original box that sits between the two front seats. the original drivers table that attaches to the dash. the original childs cot that goes between the two front seats. the back dining table. mosquito net for the back hatch. all of the curtains including the front bay window and side curtains. stove w/ associated external propane undermount tank. light duty trailer hitch for your kayak or canoe trailer (w/light harness). refrigerator. and sink. and lastly the complete factory tent that attaches to the camper.  The tent is complete and in great condition and 100% complete w/ no tears. no fade. no broken clips (did not see much use in it's life).  
I have had this camper for a little over a year. and have clocked about 5. 00 miles during last summer and this spring.  I have not driven it during the winter. and it was stored in a heated garage.  This is an Eastern camper. with the first part of it's life in North Carolina area.  The camper had the body blasted and repainted in 2005.  At that time there was some bubbling in the front doglegs that was repaired and the battery area had new trays welded in.  The dogleg repair has some cracking that has returned (see pic as it is not bad. but there).  The rest of the body is quite solid and all doors and hatches as well.  The bottom of the body where the panels come together looks great all around.  The front floor has no issues.  The roof and rain gutters are in great shape as well.  When the body was painted all the window rubber was replaced. as well as the front windshield.  The side louver window screens were replaced this spring.  The rims were blasted and powder coated this spring and look great.  The tires have approx 65% of tread life left.
The interior is all original.  The seats and mounted curtains have some fade on the exterior facing side due to age.  The front curtain is unfaded and perfect.  The driver seat has wear on the bolster and sitting surface. and would need to be replaced to be perfect.  I am including approx 2 yards of original plaid fabric with the sale that I was going to use. but ran out of time. Or you can go on-line and buy new covers (Bus Boys).  The carpet is all original and has held up well. but has some wear under the driver. and a little fade in the back area.  The cabinets are all original and look good.  There are a couple of chips in the wood grain cover material and maybe a little fade (see pics).  The door panels are original. and are in good condition. the passenger side has a little wavey by the vent.  The pop-up top is in good condition. and has one small cut about 1 inch long (see pic for red tape over cut).  The pop top itself was recoated in 2005 when the rest of the bus was completed.   I also installed a new stereo (Vintage look) with I-Pod adapter and 4 new Kenwood speakers. this spring.  Please review the pictures. I am being a bit picky. but I want the new owner to be satisfied and truly enjoy "Yoda".
The engine was replaced with a fully rebuilt hydraulic lifter motor.  It has less than 15. 00 miles on it and runs great.  Starts up with no issue.  No smoke on start up. even after sitting. I run down the highway at 55-60 mph with no issue. and no worries.  The motor still retains it's original fuel injection. and has not given me any issues.  I just got back from an 800 mile camping trip. and smiled the whole way.  I use premium full. and get approx 20-21 mpg fully loaded.  
Brakes work fine with no issue. can be a little squeaky at times. I believe from sitting.  This is not intended to be my daily driver.  The hardware (rotors/drum/pads) were fully replaced approx 6000 miles ago.
All lights (interior and exterior) and wipers work fine with no issue.
Here is a list of items that have been done:Alternator less than 4000 miles agoBattery (Interstate) replaced last springNew Stereo w/ 4 new Kenwood speakers this springOil change and Filter (Mahle) 1000 miles agoNew spark plugs. cap. ignition rotor. air filter 1000 miles agoNew exhaust 6. 00 miles agoNew Rotors. Pads and Drums 6. 00 miles agoNew right CV joint 6. 00 miles agoNew Front shocks 10. 00 miles ago
This is a great camper. and in very good condition for a 36 year old car.  Please review the pictures and ask if you want any additional pictures to help make your decision.  This is not a rotisserie restoration garage queen. but rather a loved. well taken care of. and complete vehicle that will bring a smile to your face. and all those that pass by waving and giving a thumbs up.  I would not hesitate to drive "Yoda" to California tomorrow. that is how confident I am in the vehicle.
I love this camper. but I have other interests in life. and not enough time.  
Please do not hesitate to ask any questions.  Due to the age of my camper. I must sell it with no warranties or guaranties. . expressed. implied or otherwise.  A $500 deposit is due at the end of the auction within 48 hours.  Payment must be made in full before the camper is picked up.  I can pick up the lucky winner at Milwaukee or OHare airports at no charge if needed.  You can fly in and drive/camp your way home.  If shipping the bus. I can assist with the pick-up. but all set-up and costs associated with shipping are the responsibility of the purchaser.
Good luck bidding on my "Yoda"
