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 to unveil diesel-electric Twin-Up! in Tokyo

Fri, 08 Nov 2013 11:31:00 EST

We've received multiple reports that Volkswagen will be bringing a diesel-electric concept to the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, set to take place later this month. The car, called the Twin-Up!, is based on the Up! city car, with some sources claiming this is a thinly veiled concept that will eventually enter production.
According to Automotive News Europe, the Twin-Up! will reportedly return 214 miles per gallon on the US cycle by combining an 800-cc, two-cylinder diesel and an electric motor. It will also boast plug-in capabilities, and will be able to cover 30 miles on electric power alone.
Autocar has a more complete picture of the Twin-Up!'s powertrain, though, claiming it's a modified version of the hybrid system found in the Volkswagen XL1. The Twin-Up! will get a more potent, 47-horsepower electric motor to the XL1's 27-hp unit, but will retain that car's 47-hp turbodiesel. The battery pack will also grow, from 5.5 kilowatt hours to 8.6 kWh. Both of these increases are necessary due to the increased weight of the Twin-Up! - it's some 900 pounds heavier than an XL1.

Volkswagen Golf Variant Concept R-Line puts the sport in SportWagen

Wed, 06 Mar 2013 07:31:00 EST

With the introduction of the newest Volkswagen Golf Variant, we get an early look at what will most likely be the next-generation Jetta SportWagen here in the US. To further wet our appetities, VW is now teasing something a little sportier with the Concept R-Line. Looking the part of a GTI wagon (or a stretched Golf R), the Golf Variant Concept R-Line has a production-ready appearance that has us hoping we'll see this sporty wagon sooner rather than later.
The R-Line starts off with a new fascia that isn't quite as aggressive as the recently introduced GTI, but it gives the new styling some extra punch. Below the fascia is a lower splitter that visually carries back into the rocker panel extensions, and the rear of the car gets some bright exhaust tips and a rear diffuser. The Lapis Blue Metallic paint job probably does enough on its own to add a sporty flair to the Golf wagon, and it's all finished off with 18-inch split-spoke wheels. Inside, the Concept R-Line shows off sport seats wrapped in carbon leather featuring blue nappa inserts in the middle.
Rightfully so, VW brought the Concept R-Line to Geneva with its TDI and 4Motion all-wheel-drive system. A sporty, all-wheel-drive diesel wagon? Yes, please. Scroll down for the full press blast with all the details.

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.
