Here’s a sweet looking find that showed up on craigslist yesterday in So Cal. Check out this orange crush 1982 VW Vanagon Diesel Westfalia Camper with 16″ wheels and a fresh pop top tent. No other significant info is provided, other than it’s got rear vented side windows and their asking price of $10k is firm. Check it out in Santa Barbara, CA. Craigslist Link
Ok. So, first off, which diesel is this? The utterly slow 1.6 non-turbo? Great MPGs, but very slow, and with 16″ wheels, is this for turtle racing? It could have a 1.9L turbo diesel in it, though the seller doesn’t go into details. There’s also no VIN, and 69k miles is amazingly low, so be sure to get the VIN ahead of time and do a title check. It does have some bedliner or primer around the rocker panels, definitely want to look for evidence of rust or bubbling.
