1986 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper – $14,500 in San Diego, CA (Ocean Beach)
This van was posted up on the San Diego craigslist a few days ago and looks to be in decent shape and well cared for. With an asking price of $14,500, this van comes with a new paint job, bedliner around the bottom panels and seams, new tires, new clutch, rebuilt manual transmission and 155k miles. There are only a few exterior pictures and no pictures of the tent canvas, however if the mileage is original, and everything works, it doesn’t get hot, clean title, etc, this is a decent price in So Cal for a van like this. 1st year of the 2.1L which has about 12% more power than 1.9L from ’84 and ’85. It also appears to come with Yakima Wide body mounts, towers and crossbars.
1990 VW Vanagon Westfalia Multivan Weekender w/ 2.2L Subaru – $23k in San Rafael, CA
How much difference will a k make? Gotta watch out for those typos when listing your tricked out Westy. This van popped up on the SF craigslist yesterday in San Rafael, CA with an asking price of $23k. The listing states that there is only 30 miles on engine and transmission, but the works was done in 2009? Oh what a difference a k can make. At any rate, it sill appears to be a sweet van with many upgrades and extras, most of which were done by the folks at BusLab in Berkeley, CA. It’s also missing another k, on the total mileage, which reads 266. The sellers states they are planning to upgrade to a larger rig due to their family size. Included in the long list of $23k in upgrades over the past five years are… Subaru 2.2 conversion with new everything and coolant system, rebuilt automatic trans, new heater core, the brakes, new suspension, resealed gas tank, roof lift assist kit, new skylight, new speedometer, KYB shocks, extended wiper kit, cargo net and many other odds and ends. No word if it also comes with the cargo box on top. This is pretty tricked out van for $23k, however it is an automatic trans, which I’m not a fan of, mainly due to reliability issues.
