I’ve been communicating with this seller a bit over the past couple of weeks, and she’s decided to put her nice Westy “Zeke” up for auction on eBay, as they’ve moved to Costa Rica and left Zeke in the states. This three owner specimen is a 1988 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper with only 97k original miles, stock 2.1L engine and stock automatic transmission. The VIN is provided ( WV2ZB0254JH068008 ), as well as a free Auto Check report from eBay, which shows a clean title and a high likelihood of accurate mileage. You could also back it up with Car Fax report to double check, though you’ll likely get the same answers. To my recommendations, the seller included a larger photo set on Google Plus, as well as a YouTube video of it running (though the settings are private for some reason, I’ve asked her to change the settings). The auction ends on Memorial Day, Monday May 25th at 2:51pm. eBay Link
According to the details provided and pictures, it has the stock A/C, but no mention of how cold it blows. It also has cruise control and a few power options as well. I like this Westy, and I have a good feeling the seller is honest about its condition. While it has had body work in the kitchen panel area (looks like it was cut out and welded a nice piece in) the photos of the undercarriage look decent and overall it shows pretty well. She didn’t mention how well or whether or not the propane or kitchen appliances work, so I’m contacting her with a few more questions and maybe she’ll respond in the comments below.
I’m curious to see what this sells for, as I’m guessing it will go for thousands less than it would on the West Coast, as the midwest doesn’t seem to pony up the same cash as those in the Rockies or nearer the Pacific. Where do you think the highest bid will top out? Let us know in the comments below, or head on over to the individual posts about this Westy on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Google+ and share you banter there.
