Wow this Westy has already garnered quite a lot of interest in the few hours it’s been on eBay, racking up 50 bids from 5 bidders. Take note, this is the kind of action you get when you provide tons of detailed pictures, two videos(interior / exterior) and a VIN. This specimen is a 1990 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper with stock 2.1L engine, stock automatic transmission (rebuilt 70k ago), 141k miles, clean title and all functioning appliances. Aside from 4 Yakima wide body brackets on the pop top, the multi purpose hatch rack on the rear and the awning, this van appears to be completely unmolested and stock. It does have what look to be power windows and power locks, so make sure they work flawlessly, as they can often malfunction, and is why I personally prefer the old school manual stuff. The photos with pop top down appear to have been taken with the top unlocked, as it’s sitting up kind of high, hopefully that’s not the closed and locked position. Definitely check on that. Also check for cracks around the Yakima brackets, as these are not the easiest to install correctly. The VIN is WV2ZB0253LH014931, though the seller has used up their free Auto Check reports on eBay, so you’ll have to do a CarFax or AutoCheck report on your own to get the official history. The title of the listing has Riviera in it, which isn’t correct, so not sure why they included that. Check it out in Puyallup, Washington with the auction ending Wednesday March 4th at 5:27pm PST. eBay Link
I think it will go for around $20k, but could be higher considering the quality of the listing, the apparent lack of any rust and the region. What do you think it’s worth?
