UPDATED 9/12; This was purchased by a reader of WFS, see the comments below this post!
If this post is legit, this Westy has likely sold already, but you never know… Up on craigslist late last night is this 1983.5 (first water cooled) VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper with stock 1.9L engine, stock manual transmission and unknown mileage. The seller provided just a few pictures and states there’s “no rust”. The pictures show the odometer reading 145k, no rear cushion, and possibly carpet over the rear bench seat. It’s got some dents and brusies, and could definitely use new pop top seals.Judging by the way the print on the headlight switch is worn, this van has likely seen more than 145k miles. I almost think this listing is a scam, however there’s some faint glow of hope in me that it’s real and someone’s going to get a nice deal today. I’m going to drop them an email and see if they respond. In the meantime, check it out on craigslist in Seattle, Washington with an asking price of only $5,000. Craigslist Link
