Here we have a rare opportunity to purchase a Original VW T3 Westfalia Atlantic in immaculate condition.

The Westfalia California was introduced in late 1988 and the Westfalia Atlantic a few months later in mid 1989. As the names might suggest the California was aimed at people using the bus in summer as in standard form it came fitted with single glazing and without an Eberspacher night heater. The Atlantic was aimed more at people who intended to use the bus all year round or in winter conditions as it came in standard form with double glazing and an Eberspacher night heater.
