It's been a while since I've posted about a Syncro, so here we go.  This one must have been listed on eBay within the past day or so, as I didn't set it when I was looking yesterday morning.  This van is a 1989 VW Vanagon Synrco (4x4) Westfalia camper and is currently up for auction on eBay and resides in Ashland, Oregon.  The van features a 2.3L GoWesty engine with 1k miles, rebuilt German transaxle manual transmission, new tires, a $5k windows out paint job, power mirrors, power locks, power windows, Blaupunkt stereo, Altimeter and all kinds of other extras. They seller claims they've invested about $34k so far. Aside from the GoWesty engine, this Syncro Westy is pretty much stock. No mention of what kind of decoupler is installed, as this can be a big deal with these. Basically, there are various means of disengaging the 4x4 so you don't wear out the drive shaft and front wheels drive, and get better mileage.  I'm going to reach out to the seller and see if they can provide any more details here. Also, is says 4 speed manual, when in fact, Syncros usually have 5 speeds, and they have a lower granny gear for crawling.  eBay Auction Link (ends May 11th, 2014)
