1984 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper – $14,000 in Vermont

Here’s one for the great northeast region that’s fresh on craigslist as of yesterday.  This mostly stock and original good looker is a 1984 VW Vanagon Westfalia camper with 165k miles, stock 1.9L engine, stock manual transmission and everything is said to work, with the exception of the propane power on the fridge.  It’s got a nice bra and some Hella fog lamps up front, with a more recent 3 window tent installed upstairs.  It appears to be the original paint, and there’s a promising picture of the passenger side front wheel and suspension assembly underneath, showing minimal rust and wear.  It’s got some stickerage, but I’m satisfied with the green Frequency sticker on the back cabinet, fellow snowboarders. Burlington is the hometown of Burton.  The seller states they are firm on the on $14,000 price tag, and while I think it might be a tad high depending on a few unknowns, finding a rust free survivor in the north east isn’t an easy task.  Craigslist Link

Note For Potential Buyers – Get the VIN, run a title check to see if mileage is accurate and no accidents or issues.  Next, find out of the engine has ever been rebuilt, if the gas tank has been resealed, and the last time all of the bushings up front were replaced. If none of this has ever been done, plan on doing it all very soon.

Note For The Seller – As stated above, I’d suggest providing the VIN and even a title check from AutoCheck or CarFax to further bolster your case here.  Also, there are a handful of important maitnence items that should be disclosed if they have or haven’t been done.  Rebuilt Engine?  Front suspension bushings?  Gas tank reseal?

      I will have a 1984 original westfalia camper in CT coming available in the next month or so. It is my mother in-law who is the original owner who went to Germany to purchase the vehicle. No accidents. Stay tuned

    • This was originally for sale in Nov 2014, so it’s likely gone. Whenever possible, I record the VIN for vans I post, then if that’s available, you can search google for the VIN and see if any recent results appear. With this particular van, they didn’t provide the VIN up front, so this wouldn’t work, just wanted to share this for future finds 🙂
