Happy Friday Westy lovers! The first van on today’s list (and maybe the only one), is this recently listed 1985 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper with 210k miles, stock 1.9L engine, stock 4 speed manual transmission and extra jump seat. Some bargaining points on this one. The kitchen equipment and propane tank are not functioning, and the van maintains the original tent canvas and likely the original engine. While it’s cosmetically in what appears to be great shape, it’s going to need at least a grand to get the propane tank, fridge, sink and stove back to working order, along with a likely engine rebuild or swap within the next 20k miles. The van located in Blacksburg, Virginia and the auction ends August 7th at 7:43pm PST. The current high bid is $4,000. Being on the east coast, I expect the highest bid for this van to be somewhere between $9k and $11k, although it could be lower. eBay Link
