History She is a VW 1972 transporter originally from Mass. USA which had a roof conversion in the late 70ís. A Sportmobile penthouse popup was installed. Fast forward to now, I acquired her in 2016 as a birthday gift, being a former westfalia and beetle owner in the 80ís. I have removed the Fiberglas roof and am replacing the headliner with tongue and groove thin cedar and have had a new canvas made using the old one as a template. The body, engine and interior was all redone before i got her. Sportmobile popup is great...just have to re-install!

I had a '75, but had to get rid of it because there was nothing left but rust.
