Extremely rare and sought-after Volkswagen Westfalia Joker T25.
This is a cherished and remarkably well-preserved example of the marque’s ever-popular modern classic campervan, offered in impressive, highly original condition.
It is powered by a naturally aspirated 1.9-litre water-cooled flat-four, producing around 59bhp and driving the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission.
This left-hand drive Westfalia Joker was originally a German-delivered model, which was imported and first registered in the UK in November 2003, and has been with the seller and third UK-based owner for 17 years.
In early 2023 the car has been imported in Greece. It now has Greek historic plates and a FIA international accreditation card.
This campervan has been driven and enjoyed as intended, but evidently very well maintained throughout, and the odometer shows 182,004 Kms from new.
EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES
This Westfalia Joker is finished in white over a grey cloth and half vinyl-trimmed interior with pinstripe seat sections, which includes a kitchenette with a two-ring hob and sink, a fridge, and various storage cupboards, all finished in white with grey trim. The operation of the car’s camping equipment (fridge, kitchenette, sink, heater, sockets etc.) has not been tested. The seller advises the next owner to check all camping equipment before use, therefore, potential buyers should consider to refurbish or replace the vehicle’s camping equipment at extra cost.
It rides on a set of 14-inch steel wheels with ‘Vanagon’ hubcaps, shod in Nankang NK Van CW-25 tyres.
The factory specification includes a Reimo fixed high-top roof, an Eberspächer heater, double-glazed windows, swivelling front seats, a rock-and-roll bed, an electricity hook-up, a two-bar steering wheel, heater and ventilation controls, a thermometer, a swivel tabletop, rear curtains, and a push-up roof window.
This Westfalia Joker features a Fiamma bike rack, a dashboard-mounted battery monitor, and a Kenwood CD stereo.
The van comes with some old UK MOT certificates and maintenance invoices, a waste water pipe, warning triangle, and a Haynes manual.
The previously resprayed white paintwork is reported to be in excellent condition given the van’s age, though the seller notes some small blemishes around the vehicle.
Stepping inside, the cabin is presented in great shape given the van’s usage. There is stretching on the seats, wear on the driver’s floor mat, and very modest signs of use around the trim, but no major wear.
The seller is not aware of any mechanical or electrical faults, and they state that there are no warning lights showing on the dashboard.
This T25’s most recent maintenance was carried out at around 180,246 Kms by Central Motors Forfar, UK, which consisted of a new ignition system installed with a coil, leads and spark plugs, new fuel filters, a wheel bearing, the brake pipes renewed, a master cylinder replaced, four new tyres fitted, and an engine oil and filter change.
Other notable maintenance includes a recent body shop overhaul at a cost of more than £3,000, which included repairs on the doorsteps.
This Volkswagen Westfalia Joker T25 is a particularly well-preserved example of the marque’s ever-popular modern classic campervan, offered from long-term ownership and in impressive, highly original condition.
Benefitting from significant recent maintenance and boasting a comfortable, well-appointed cabin and living area, it would make a fine addition to any collection, and a characterful companion for retro daily driving, weekend getaways, and family camping holidays alike.
