1970s Mercedes Westfalia Campervan

24 04 2015

Here comes another one of these old machines: I assume the basis of this vintage camper is also a Mercedes 206 or 207, produced between 1970 and 1977, like the one I posted yesterday. This one parked last October around the corner from our place here in Berlin. I talked a bit to the truck driver: Seems it was just purchased by a new owner and was now on its way to its new home in South Germany. In addition to the groovy 1970s color scheme this one is apparently an original Westfalia conversion of which just a handful still exist. It needs a lot of restoration, with rust present around the wheel houses and probably in many other places. But when it will be done, someone will own a quite unique campervan!

Looking at the horizontal tail lights and the black grille, I thing it might be a Hanomag-Henschel F20, from before Mercedes-Benz used the design.
