I have 2 "Westys", same year, same color scheme, 1 full camper and a weekender.
I am selling the weekender for $6000

or use as downpayment on a VWsynchro-camper (4x4).

I originally bought the weekender for parts for my camper, but then it kept running so well after i gave it new cylinder heads, new steering fluid pump, shocks.....

Ok. I'm always behind the ball. Nothing available at Paddy's wagon. Do they tolerate doubling up on sites? If so, anyone willing to double?

Hey I have a 1960 trans, probably core status as its been under a tarp under a tree (next to a '68 beam some crazy cat gave me) if you need parts. Also most of a t3 swing and a '68 t1 swing if you wanna lower it like the cool kids.

No lowering for my buses, i like the capability to crawl under the bus when needed

I have no idea the status of the trans other than it is there.

I do know I will need a front beam, I'm unsure what years swap.
