What engine did the Westfalia California ship with

Postby fatherslow » 08 Oct 2019, 11:49

I'm currently selling my van and a guy has contacted me, trying to tell me that the 1989 Westfalia California only shipped with 1.6d and 2.1dj, is this correct, is my 1.9dg engine a transplant?

I don’t believe that to be true, as the DH and GW engines were fitted for other markets .
Happy to be proved wrong of course

You could specify what engine you wanted then just the same as now. Someone is talking out of their rrrse. You bought the base van and had it converted by Westfalia/Devon/etc. I specified the build of my T6 just the same and had a 204hp engine instead of the basic 102. Westfalia are only a converter not the van manufacturer.

I sent the guy a link to that page, but he is sticking to his guns. I think he's the definition of a time waster!

The chap could be getting the facts mixed up with other models that were supplied with only 2 engine options , the LLE was 2.1 petrol or 1.6TD both 5 speed.

He is just trying to knock the price down by saying that it has the wrong engine!

There are vans out there with lots of Westy bits from scrapped vans that are not original Westies so perhaps he is worried about that.

Don't ever remember seeing a 1.9DG in a California, only 1.6TD and 2.1l, seen loads through the workshop. Not saying they don't exsist, oddball stuff always pops up but I think even though they are advertised they were never actually offered. Ditto Atlantic.
