1985 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper w/ GoWesty 2.2L- Auction – Ventura, CA

Here’s a nice looking find in So Cal for your Thursday morning Westy hunt.  This van is a 1985 VW Vanagon Westfalia camper with approximately 255k miles on the body, 60k miles on a GoWesty 2.2L engine, stock manual transmission and some general good looks.  The seller states the fridge was removed long ago and now serves as storage space, and it appears it’s also got a 3 window tent canvas.  The seller provided the VIN and the free eBay Auto Check report gave a decent score of 36, with all the DMV records dating back to 1997 being in California. While it is common for some panels to fade at different rates than others, this one looks to have been partially repainted at some point.  The bids start at $6,000 and the auction ends Wednesday, December 1oth at 7pm PST.  eBay Link

A Note To Potential Buyers – Looks like a good find if you can get it for under $10k.  244k miles is a lot, so unless there’s been a serious amount of upkeep to bushings, ball joints, fuel lines, etc, there could be a lot of miscellaneous work to be done here, or maybe not…

A Note To The Seller – Nice rig! What’s your reserve price? Would be great to have some photos from underneath.  A list of when various seals and bushings were replaced would be nice too.  

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
