Vehicle description

Facts: Model: 2312 Chassis No. 237 079 104 Engine No. HO 309 034 Color: Pearl White Production Date: December 30th, 1966 Delivery Date: February 28th, 1967 Camping Equipment: A 42
This gorgeous camper van, a model 2312 transporter, was produced by VW at Hanover on December 30, 1966. It was then shipped to Wiedenbruck for the installation of its camping equipment by Westfalia-Werke on January 2, 1967. On February 27, 1967 it was picked up factory direct by its original owner as it rolled off the assembly line. The bus was delivered as part of the Tourist (TASP) program, and it travelled Germany, Denmark, Belgium, France and Italy before being shipped to Canada from the port of Hamburg, Germany on the ship MS Transamerica on August 26, 1967. Upon its arrival in Canada, it was used for daily transportation for two years before being placed in storage for 10 years from 1970-1980. After not being driven for all this time, the bus was then driven across the country to Vancouver, British Columbia from its strage spot in Toronto, Ontario. For the next 7 years, it was used again for basic transportation, before the original owner decided to sell it in 1988. During the course of the next year, the 2nd owner began a complete restoration. It was stripped to a shell, and all the parts were tagged and separated. From there, the shell was sent out to Bigsby"s VW Specialties, where some extensive metalwork was undertaken. The complete cargo floor, along with all the frame extensions and rocker panels were replaced. Both dog legs, and the front aprons were alos replaced. The welding and major bodywork now complete, the bus was taken to Dean Brothers Collision for the final finish work and paint. A combined total of 200 hours were spent on the body for it to have taken on its present state. The paint is Dupont Centari, original Pearl White L87 acrylic enamel, and two coats were applied. The present finish is as it was shot, straight out of the gun. It has not been buffed or colorsanded. Assembly of the Westfalia took about five months to complete. Parts were obtained from many sources: new rubber came from West Coast Metric, many of the NOS items used were from the Wolfsburg Warehouse and from Volkswagen of Germany. Mechanical parts were supplied mainly by California Imports of Burnaby B.C and Car Custom. Many of the original chrome items were replated at Modern Auto Plating, who are also responsible for the fully polished genuine Fuchs Porsche 15 x 6 alloys. The wheels were generously wrapped in Goodyear Eagle 195/50/15 tires. All this rubber is tied to a thoroughly reworked suspension courtesy of Bus Boys, which consists of a 1968 Type III transmission with early bus nosecone, straight swing axle conversion, Type III brakes with redrilled drums, and an adjustable Albatrose beam with specially machined low profile adapters. The motor is a 1600 dual-port built on the original case, and it has dual 34 ICT webers, chrome Bosch 009 distributor, genuine VW 36-hp non-fresh air fan shroud, no heater system and an S&S dual aluminum silencer exhaust system. Clutch is a 1500lb Fichtel and Sachs unit. The interior is mostly original except for the door panels and faces of the front seats. One month after completion, it was taken on a 3700 mile trip to the SOTO Anniversary meet in Garden Grove, California. The bus made its official debut at the 1989 Northwest Vintage Meet in Seattle, where it placed second in class. The more recent history of this bus is that it was purchased after the restoration in the early 1990"s by the current owner who has kept it in pristine condition and has only taken it out of his garage a few times in the past 30 years. Simply put, this is a van with pedigree and pride of ownership. The current owners are getting on in their years and have decided it"s time to sell it and allow the van to enter its next chapter. It"s nice enough to be an exhibit in a museum.
