O Fallon, IL Stella Blue and Cream · 51,202 miles
The year is 1970 The First Earth Day celebrated US President Richard Nixon promises gradual troop removal of Vietnam and this awesome Stella Blue VW Westfalia rolls into dealerships for sale. Since then she has been completely rebuilt. 1968-1979 VW vans are called Type II Buses: These models were also referred to as the Bay Window Bus or ??Bread-Loaf Bus or simply ??VW Bus. The ones with a pop-top are Westfalia campers. This second-generation Type 2 lost its distinctive split front windshield and was slightly larger and considerably heavier than its predecessor. Its common nicknames are Breadloaf and Bay-window or Loaf and Bay for short. At 1.6 L the engine was also slightly larger. The battery and electrical system was upgraded to 12 volts making it incompatible with electric accessories from the previous generation. The new model also did away with the swing axle rear suspension and transfer boxes previously used to raise ride height. Instead half-shaft axles fitted with constant velocity joints raised ride height without the wild changes in camber of the Beetle-based swing axle suspension. The updated Bus transaxle is usually sought after by off-road racers using air-cooled Volkswagen components.The Grateful Dead song ??Stella Blue ? truly inspired the restoration of this awesome VW Van.All the years combineThey melt into a dreamA broken angel singsFrom a guitarIn the end theres just a songComes crying up the nightThrough all the broken dreamsAnd vanished yearsStella BlueStella BlueWhen all the cards are downTheres nothing left to seeTheres just the pavement leftAnd broken dreamsIn the end theres still that songComes crying like the windDown every lonely streetThats ever beenStella BlueStella BlueIve stayed in every blue light cheap hotelCant win for tryingDust off those rusty strings just one more timeGonna make them shineIt all rolls into oneAnd nothing comes for freeTheres nothing you can holdFor very longAnd when you hear that songCome crying like the windIt seems like all this lifeWas just a dreamStella BlueStella BlueTo view the car in greater detail including an HD video and 100+ HD pictures please visit www.gatewayclassiccars.com or our Denver showroom.
