This low priced Sunday find is a 1983.5 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper in white with a 2.0 Tiico Jetta engine conversion done in 2012, stock 4 speed manual transmission and unspecified mileage. The seller states it’s got a fresh pop top canvas, newer tires, all original curtains & screens, a blue tooth head unit and trailer hitch for your stuff(hopefully they only used it for a bike rack). The fridge, sink and stove are all said to work, though the fridge not so well or at all on propane.
There’s some obvious seam rust brewing in a couple of the photos, though it doesn’t look outrageous. This is definitely priced low if it runs & drives well without overheating or leaking. It is the very first year of the water cooled Vanagon, so make sure all the coolant lines and radiator have been upgraded at some point. No word on who performed the Tiico conversion, as these will be hard to pass with a California smog referee. Be sure to get the details if you’re thinking of registering it in CA. Find it in Albuquerque, NM with an asking price of $6,700. Craigslist Link
