My sister Melanie with her supercool split screen 1957 Volkswagen Camper Van named 'Woody' (short for 'Woodville', as suggested by its numberplate). This design classic still looks futuristic 45 years on; heck, it even has trafficators (indicator flags that stick out to signal :-) !
Inside, the dashboard is rather minimal, but behind the front seats is a kitchen area with cupboards, fridge and stove, and a foldaway double bed at the back.
This vehicle is the ultimate compact RoadTripMobile; she's enjoying taking it out to VW shows and getting into the whole VW cult thing. Fellow VeeDub fans should definitely check out the Bus Selecta!!
Woody now has a companion! A matching original Westfalia caravan from the same era. More details and photos to follow...
