UPDATED: Sold For $13,086! See comments below the post.
Here’s a rare survivor from the first iteration of the water cooled 1.9L engine up for auction in the midwest. This specimen is a 1983.5 VW Vanagon Westfalia camper with stock 1.9L engine, stock manual transmission, and everything is stated to function properly. There’s a couple of minor nicks and scratches, a small hole in the original tent canvas and it probably needs a new O2 sensor and maybe a muffler. The only aftermarket addition mentioned is that there have been some “additional outlets wired in”, not sure what that means, or if it’s got an inverter, etc. The seller, whom is the 2nd owner, is looking to cash in with hopes of a Buy It Now price of $25k. However, now let’s talk about actual mileage. The seller states 48k original miles, and honestly the van looks it, however the free title check report shows an odometer discrepancy noted back in 2004. I’m going to email the seller and see if they’ve got some insights here. You can check it out for yourself in Davenport, Iowa with the auction ending on September 24th. eBay Link (VIN WV2ZB0250DH074506)
