1984 VW Vanagon Westfalia Wolfsburg Camper – 146k Miles – $8,500 in Virginia
This ones already been up on craigslist for a few days, but thought it was worthy of mentioning today as the looks, mileage and price seem like a decent deal. This van is a 1984 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper with the Wolfsburg trim, stock 1.9L engine, stock 4 speed manual transmission and a reported 146k miles. The four pictures shared of this van show the original two tone paint job, clean interior, original curtains and a missing hubcap. The seller states the fridge and stove work "perfectly", which is rather rare for an '84, even with under 200k miles. On the West Coast this same rig would likely sell for well north of $12k, and quite quickly at that. According to the details, the current owner bought it for her husband as a gift, but he doesn't seem to have the time to use it, so they're selling. Craigslist Link
Some things I like about this Westy? Well, '84's didn't come with arm rests, unless it was a Wolfsburg. The paint looks pretty good for its age.
Some things I'd check on. No VIN supplied, no way to check actual title history for records and mileage accuracy. It looks like it has the pain in the ass factory A/C that blows on the back of your head from above the rear seats. Does it work? The pop top seals look a bit wonky, but might be fine. The side mirrors are likely in "full flop" mode and need to be replaced or upgraded (see the sag?).
