OK, so this is odd. First we get this imported turbo diesel syncro up for sale/auction in New Jersey, now there’s an almost identical high top version for sale by the same seller? I’m confused. The auction for the earlier one, said no reserve, closed at $32k, but then was relisted on The Samba for $44k. At any rate, I need to get a hold of this seller and see what the full scoop is here. This new van is a 1989 VW Vanagon Westfalia syncro 1.6L turbo diesel high top with 43k original miles and a clean title (VIN WV2ZZZ25ZKG087122) with “spotless” CarFax and AutoCheck reports, which are not provided. Since a 1989 passes the 25 year rule, I guess it isn’t too hard to get these shipped over from Europe and registered in the US. For starters this van is the Club Joker model with every option available. It’s got an extra big turbo with an intercooler, central and rear locking diff (I guess this means you can’t independently lock the front?), big brake kit, front and rear skid plates, big bumpers, South African grill and headlight kit, coach battery, Hella lights on a bull bar, tire carrier with extra jerry can and all kinds of other bells and whistles. You’ll want to upgrade the old school stereo head unit though. The auction ends Sunday October 26th and 5:45pm PST. eBay Link / Photobucket Link
