1991 Westy Camper - Auto - 99k Miles - $16,500 in Hilo, HI

1991 Westy Camper - Auto - 99k Miles - $16,500 in Hilo, HI

Happy Friday Westy hunters!  Today's user submission from Bob in Hilo, Hawaii who's got this beautiful 1991 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper with 99k original miles, stock 2.1L engine and automatic transmission for sale with an asking price of $16,500. Craigslist Link

The van is on it's 3rd owner who provided the VIN so you can check up on the accuracy of the mileage and history. ( VIN WV2ZB025XMG009121 ). According to the notes, it has seen a new cylinder head (just one?), water pump, brakes, upper control arms & bushings, Bilstein shocks, battery, new utility hookups and rides nicely some fresh General Grabber tires. The fridge isn't working and the A/C was removed, though the propane tank, stove and sink all function properly.  Best of all it has recently been resprayed in the original, highly sought after, Orly Blue color.  It looks so good in fact you'll see this van as an extra in this summer's REI catalog, as it was used for their recent photo shoot.  Shipping to other Hawaii Islands is ~$400, shipping to the mainland is ~$1,100.

If this Westy were for sale in California it would net at least $17,600 (current asking price + shipping). I can't tell if it has power windows, locks, mirrors, but you'll definitely want to inquire here and if so, make sure they all work. These features were first to go buggy in these late model Westys.

1990 Vanagon Westfalia Camper - Auto - 141k - Auction in Puyallu

1990 Vanagon Westfalia Camper - Auto - 141k - Auction in Puyallup, WA

Wow this Westy has already garnered quite a lot of interest in the few hours it's been on eBay, racking up 50 bids from 5 bidders.  Take note, this is the kind of action you get when you provide tons of detailed pictures, two videos(interior / exterior) and a VIN. This specimen is a 1990 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper with stock 2.1L engine, stock automatic transmission (rebuilt 70k ago), 141k miles, clean title and all functioning appliances.  Aside from 4 Yakima wide body brackets on the pop top, the multi purpose hatch rack on the rear and the awning, this van appears to be completely unmolested and stock.   It does have what look to be power windows and power locks, so make sure they work flawlessly, as they can often malfunction, and is why I personally prefer the old school manual stuff.  The photos with pop top down appear to have been taken with the top unlocked, as it's sitting up kind of high, hopefully that's not the closed and locked position. Definitely check on that.  Also check for cracks around the Yakima brackets, as these are not the easiest to install correctly. The VIN is WV2ZB0253LH014931, though the seller has used up their free Auto Check reports on eBay, so you'll have to do a CarFax or AutoCheck report on your own to get the official history.  The title of the listing has Riviera in it, which isn't correct, so not sure why they included that.   Check it out in Puyallup, Washington with the auction ending Wednesday March 4th at 5:27pm PST. eBay Link

I think it will go for around $20k, but could be higher considering the quality of the listing, the apparent lack of any rust and the region. What do you think it's worth?  Share your wisdom in the comments below, or jump on over to the individual discussions about this Westy on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Google+.

1985 VW Vanagon Westfalia Weekender w/ Automatic Trans - $8,200 in SF

1985 VW Vanagon Westfalia Weekender w/ Automatic Trans - $8,200 in SF

Looking for a good deal on a automatic Westy Weekender in the Bay Area?  This ad for a 1985 VW Vanagon Westfalia Weekender with Wolfsburg trim was just posted up for sale on The Samba for a cool $8,200. (The Samba Link)  The seller doesn't provide too many details, and the pictures are a bit dark, however it appears to be in relatively good shape.  No VIN #, mileage or mechanical modifications are mentioned, so you'll have to inquire with the seller on those.  However there does appear to be a nice stereo set up, and three sets of Yakima wide body brackets attached to the pop top with towers and bars, I'm assuming they all come with the deal? There's oddly no pictures of the slider door or a wide detailed shot of the tent canvas, so they're a mystery for now.

What do you think it's worth? Are you headed to see this van?  Tell us what's up in the comments below, or head on over to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Google+ to share your wisdom on this van's individual postings there.

1991 VW Vanagon Westfalia Weekender w/ 7k on Rebuilt Engine - $12k in Victoria, Canada

1991 VW Vanagon Westfalia Weekender w/ 7k on Rebuilt Engine - $12k in Victoria, Canada

I received an email the other day from Lorraine about her 1991 Westy Weekender she's selling and thought it was worth enough for a post.  It is in Canada, and it's borderline on the 25 year rule, since it's a 1991, so if you're in the states, you'll want to make sure that's all sorted out before you try to register her state side.  At any rate, this weekender appear to be mostly stock with the exception of the hardwood floor and the three set of Yakima wide body brackets mounted to the pop top.  Always be sure to check for cracks around rack mounts when you're viewing a van.  She did provide the VIN WV2TBO255MG008917 so you can do a title history check yourself to get more of the inside info.  The 2.1L engine was rebuilt only 7k km ago, with the van currently having a whopping 407km on the odometer.  Lorraine states it's "Baja Ready", and aside from a good sides dent on the drivers side rear, it looks to be a great shape.  It looks like it might have power lowers, windows and mirrors, so these are kind of a risk in a place like Baja, as they are known to fail, and why I love the rare all manual stuff in a late model Vanagon.  At any rate, check it out on The Samba in Victoria, B.C. Canada with an asking price of $12k. The Samba Link

Hey Westfalia hunters, I wanted to take a minute this morning to thank all of our fans and users that have helped make this site what it is today.  All of the comments, love, hate, banter and everything in between is much appreciated. Here's a quick snapshot of how much this website has grown over the past couple of years, as we are now approaching 1,000 visitors a day.
westfalias-for-sale-stats-all-time-visitors
I've got more ideas, features, pieces and other fun things in store when I get the time to work on them.  Currently the website is making about $400/mo between eBay, Google and other random affiliate ads.  Keep in mind when you use many of the links on this site, the merchants will pay me a cut of any purchases you make after clicking through the links.  Even if you click through an eBay ad to a van,  and then decide to buy a toaster, that counts too. Every little bit helps, and all of the $$ ends up going back into Juanita, my '85 Camper.

1986 Syncro Vanagon Westfalia Camper - $26,500 in Phoenix, AZ

1986 Syncro Vanagon Westfalia Camper - $26,500 in Phoenix, AZ

Anytime there's a decent looking syncro pop top for sale for under $30k it's going to get mentioned here, at least in most cases.  That's what we've got here today.  This van is a 1986 VW Vanagon Syncro Westfalia Camper with a fresh GoWesty engine (unknown displacement), stock manual transmission and 208k miles.  The seller states this van has also received a new front drive shaft and viscous coupler (for the syncro portion), new swing axles, new brakes (vague?), new suspension and factory overhead A/C works. The fridge is said to not be functioning, but no other notes on the stove, propane tank, sink, water pump, etc.  While it carries the original paint job and pin stripes, the previous owner Line X'd the rocker panels and front and it appears to be a good job, however you'll never know what may or may not have been underneath all that.  It sits nicely on either 15" or 16" GoWesty/VanCafe wheels with what appear to be BFG AT tires. Find it for sale in Phoenix, Arizona with an asking price of $26,500. Craigslist Link

here's no mention (or pictures) of any "knobs" on the dash for things like decouplers, lockers, etc, so you'll have to ask the seller if there's anything additional besides the stock all wheel drive package. They also didn't provide the VIN, so you'll definitely want to get a hold of that and do a title check to get more of the history behind the rig. As an added bonus it is show with an awning and reach hatch rack system, I'm guessing they're included with the sale?   If this is truly a rust free, fresh engine, fresh drive shaft & viscous coupler Westy camper, it will sell quick at this price, if it's not sold already.
