Aaaa oooo ohhhhh, text, text me anytime… text me.  Who asks for a text to set up a test drive?  These folks do, though it sounds kinda sketch to me. This decent looking deal appeared on the Spokane, WA Craigslist about an hour ago, though the van is located o Coeur d’Alene, ID.  Craigslist Link

This rig is a 1985 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper with stock 1.9L engine and stock automatic transmission, both rebuilt roughly 3,000 miles ago, with reportedly 200k on the odometer.   Other than the stuff that should come with a Westy like this, there’s no other details mentioned other than “tires with tread” and a “clean title upon cash purchase”.  I’m somewhat skeptical of this ad and will reach out to the seller for more details.  What are your thoughts?  Leave them in the comments below or head on over to rant on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Google+.

    I need help – PLEASE !!! My son is a freshman at the University of Utah – and worked very long days during the past two summers as a golf caddy and mowing yards to save enough money to buy a descent Westy with automatic transmission and AC to use in Utah. We’ve been trying to buy one for almost one year and missed several on eBay, Craigslist and The Samba by a few minutes or a few dollars. Our last three experiences to try a purchase a Westy included the listing of an imaginary person in the Armed Services with an imaginary Westy in Utah that she was selling because she was being transferred to Alaska. Our next experience was with a Westy in MI that we lost on an eBay auction by 5 seconds – to a buyer who listed it the next day at a $2,700+ increase from the eBay sale price. Earlier today while in the process of finalizing the deal for a Westy in ID, I was told the title was in multiple names, one person had the keys in a safe deposit box box, another had the title in a different safe deposit box, both were on vacation, and a bank wire transfer was the only accepted form of payment. I was praying this was real when I was told a person came off the street with a bag of money and purchased the Westy. If there is anyone out there who is real, honest, sincere and has a Westy with automatic transmission and AC for sale at a reasonable price and would like to make a young man in Utah very, very happy – please call or email me at your convenience. Thank you. Jeff H, Pittsburgh, PA

    “Paint job is old, but updated with chalkboard paint on the door.”

    I honestly did not know that this is a thing. Chalkboard paint is a thing

    The repeated capitalized insistence on no verbal contact is concerning, as is the need to point out that the vehicle has seat belts.

    Still, could be a great deal if it has good bones and the engine/tranny are both well sorted.
