1982 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper w/ TDI Engine & 5 Speed - Aucti

1982 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper w/ TDI Engine & 5 Speed – Auction in Renton, WA

Here’s a fresh find added to the eBay auction block yesterday. This van is a 1982 VW Vanagon Westfalia camper with a TDI engine from a 1996 VW (likely engine code is 1Z/ AHU),  a rare 5 speed transmission and 150k miles on the odometer.  The title check shows an estimated five owners, with the current owner likely having it for about a year or less. No reason as to why they are parting with it.  They only other details provided are that the kitchen equipment is in full working order.  If this van is relatively rust free, drives well and doesn’t leak, it’s probably worth between $12k and $15k, depending on a variety of factors. This van is located in Renton, Washington and the auction ends on August 4th at 1pm PST. eBay Link

1985 VW Vanagon Westfalia High Top Turbo Diesel - Colorado Springs

1985 VW Vanagon Westfalia High Top Turbo Diesel – $20,000 in Colorado Springs, CO

This unique van is a 1985 VW Vanagon Westfalia with 182k miles on the clock and isn’t your ordinary Westy.  Most recently(past few thousand miles) this Westy has received a brand new high top from North American High Tops and a 1.9L AAZ Turbo Diesel engine from a 1997 donor car. A majority of the recent work was done at Green Syncro, in Manitou Springs, CO,  just outside of Colorado Springs.  The engine has been rebuilt and comes with a new turbo with intercooler, new transmission with taller 3rd and 4th gears, stainless steel coolant pipes, diesel filtration system, new diesel tank, new rear brake cylinder, South African grill and headlights, nice 16″ wheels and tires and some overall good looks.  Also note it comes with a standard Westfalia kitchen from that year, however nothing is stated about the functionality of the appliances.  I’ve never checked out a high top like this in person, would love to sometime.  Craigslist Link

1990 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper - $6k in West Virginia

1990 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper w/ 117k miles Only $6k in West Virginia

UPDATED: See comments below post.

Here’s a deal that’s probably too good to be true, but I’ll shoot them an email and see what happens.  This van is a 1990 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper with 117k miles, stock 2.1L engine, stock manual transmission and is for sale by the second owner who states it is “all original”.  No other details are provided in the listing. In relative terms this is 1/3 of the price this van would sell for on the West Coast if it was legit. While the license plate appears visible in the photo, upon zooming in it can’t be read, and there is no VIN provided. Hmmm. This van is available (maybe?) in Harrisonburg, Virginia with an asking price of $6k.  Craigslist Link

1991 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper - $19,500 in Sedona, AZ

1991 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper – $19,500 in Sedona, AZ

Anytime you can find a 1991 Westy with under 100k miles for less than $20k, it might be worth looking into, like this one.  Posted up for sale on The Samba yesterday afternoon with a new lower price is this White 1991 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper with stock 2.1L engine, stock automatic transmission and 80k original miles.  It was originally listed on the Flagstaff Craigslist for $21,500 about a week ago (link).  Not many details have been provided by the seller(not even a VIN), other than some nice looking pictures of this rust free Arizona specimen.  They do claim to have a majority of the service records. For those that don’t know, 1991 was the last year these were brought to the US, so of course they are highly sought after, especially the sub 100k mile ones that are still mostly stock.  I’m not a fan of automatic transmissions, but others love them.  Find it in Sedona, Arizona with an asking price of $19,500.  The Samba Link

1986 VW Vanagon Westfalia Weekender - $7,000 in Eureka, CA

1986 VW Vanagon Westfalia Weekender – $7,000 in Eureka, CA

Due to the size of the region I live in, only a few times a year a decent deal appears on our local craigslist, however there’s another one I missed that was posted almost a week ago.  This van is a 1986 VW Vanagon Westfalia Weekender with stock 2.1L engine, fresh stock 4 speed manual transmission, seat belts for 6, a 3 window tent, Yakima racks, new shift linkage, new tires and a broken odometer with unknown mileage.  The upholstery does need a serious overhaul, however the van appears to be in generally good shape. If it’s mostly rust free and the engine doesn’t get hot or leak, this is probably a pretty good deal.  Find in it Eureka, California with an asking price of $7,000. Craigslist Link

1987 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper - $9,000 in Oceanside, CA

1987 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper – $9,000 in Oceanside, CA

Happy Friday everyone!  Today’s first van I thought was worth of mention is this 1987 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper with 217k miles on the body, ~50k miles on rebuilt 2.1L stock engine, stock manual transmission, power windows, power inverter, functioning kitchen equipment and a the original tent in decent shape. The seller states they are expecting triplets in the near future, so the van needs to go.  It looks to be the original paint and the exterior and interior appear to be in good shape.  It does look like it has some seam rust starting in the usual places, but overall looks like a very clean Westy for under $10k. Find it for sale on The Samba for $9k, available in Oceanside, California. The Samba Link
