My 'New' 78 Westy!

Postby 71Survivor » Sat Oct 31, 2015 8:19 am

Picked up a nice clean 78 Westy - I have been looking for a long time!

Lots more pics here: http://globespotter.com/78Westy/

It is originally from Nanaimo, BC on Vancouver Island and was born Sage Green, but is now Alpine White. It's a Canadian Deluxe, meaning it has no Stove, but has City Water, Dash Table, Fridge etc.

It has been refurbished by the original owner - I am the 3rd owner - done in a fresh white and grey interior. Paint is not perfect, but it's not bad. Best is that rust was very professionally repaired. This bus is VERY clean.

I've wanted to get back into a bus since I sold my 79 Westy back in 1991. Looking forward to being a bus driver again!
