1973 Volkswagen Type 2 Wild Westerner High-Top Project

Although it looks like the perfect late 60s/early 70s representation, the Ravenna Green/Apple Green combination you see here was rare. Quite, quite rare. It’s so rare, in fact, that while there’s an enthusiastic bunch that is trying to document the Wild Westerner package, they still can’t uncover much about its background or purpose. There’s some belief that it was associated with the 1974 Expo in Spokane, Washington – though there doesn’t seem to be any official link. But whatever the case for its creation, for $75 on top of your $3,800 van in 1973, you got the unique two-tone paint scheme with a blue stripe around. It was fetching and pretty, in a way.

Today’s example also has a high-top camper, though admittedly if you want to camp in it right now…well, it won’t be very comfortable. A winter project in the making, perhaps?
