We bought this gem around 12 years ago, in a sore and unloved state. We spent 2 years lovingly restoring her, and have enjoyed many a campouts & made life long friends. Almost 5 years ago, we started our family and since, time has evaded us and it’s been 5 years since this old girl has been used.

We had so many great times in “Vega”, storing her in a shed unused and unloved is a bit sad, so it’s time for her to find new travel companions, and see out her prime years in style.

Around 8-10 years ago as a rolling project she has had:

  • body was given some love and attention and she received a new top coat of PPG’s “is it green” - a head turner and conversation started everywhere.
  • Engine was given a birthday, new rings, bearings, gaskets etc.. were fitted. Jim Fleet, well known in VW community, completed this work.
  • A new Empi muffler was fitted for the classic VW purr
  • JBW mags & 4 new tyres were fitted
  • Front seats have been professionally reupholstered with TMC covers
  • Rebuilt Westfalia louvre window has been fitted and all panels open & close
  • Most window seals have been replaced

The rear interior has been kept simple, to reflect the ease and simplicity that camping should be. A fixed bed base provides a solid base for a good night sleep and makes a perfect day bed when lazing at the beach. This can easily be removed with just a few bolts.

With a growing young family and time evading us, it’s been 5 years since “Vega” has been used. Her last WOF expired a few months ago and the registration was put on hold.

We would love to see her go to a new home where she is treated like the gem that she is, and the $1 reserve simply reflects our passion for her to find a new home, new travel companions and a new family to love her.

If you wish to view “Vega”, she is located in Penrose, please leave your details below and we will be in contact.
