The year is 1970, The First Earth Day celebrated, US President Richard Nixon promises gradual troop removal of Vietnam and this awesome Stella Blue VW Westfalia rolls into dealerships for sale. Since then she has been completely rebuilt. 1968-1979 VW vans are called Type II Buses: These models were also referred to as the "Bay Window Bus," or “Bread-Loaf Bus," or simply “VW Bus." The ones with a pop-top are Westfalia campers. This second-generation Type 2 lost its distinctive split front windshield, and was slightly larger and considerably heavier than its predecessor. Its common nicknames are Breadloaf and Bay-window, or Loaf and Bay for short. At 1.6 L, the engine was also slightly larger. The battery and electrical system was upgraded to 12 volts, making it incompatible with electric accessories from the previous generation. The new model also did away with the swing axle rear suspension and transfer boxes previously used to raise ride height. Instead, half-shaft axles fitted with constant velocity joints raised ride height without the wild changes in camber of the Beetle-based swing axle suspension. The updated Bus transaxle is usually sought after by off-road racers using air-cooled Volkswagen components.

The Grateful Dead song “Stella Blue” truly inspired the restoration of this awesome VW Van.

All the years combine

They melt into a dream

A broken angel sings

From a guitar

In the end there's just a song

Comes crying up the night

Through all the broken dreams

And vanished years

Stella Blue

Stella Blue

When all the cards are down

There's nothing left to see

There's just the pavement left

And broken dreams

In the end there's still that song

Comes crying like the wind

Down every lonely street

That's ever been

Stella Blue

Stella Blue

I've stayed in every blue light cheap hotel

Can't win for trying

Dust off those rusty strings just one more time

Gonna make them shine

It all rolls into one

And nothing comes for free

There's nothing you can hold

For very long

And when you hear that song

Come crying like the wind

It seems like all this life

Was just a dream

Stella Blue
