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?

It’s a really nice looking Westy but whenever I see Ebay bidders bidding on big ticket items with “0” bidding history it makes me wonder if it’s a friend of the sellers running up the price……………
I spoke to the seller about the last auction in which there was also a “0” bidder that ran up the price super fast. All he said about the non payment by someone with over 500 purchase history was they were a non payer. Just makes one wonder what he discovered
This is nick the owner of the westy…500+ feedback is always a good sign..but is it still impressive if its just for cheap items? I only have a feedback of 16 100%..but 14 are vehicles ive sold in the past..that should speak for itself , as for seeing bidder with 0 feedback? Just dont bid if you do not feel comfortable is what i tell anyone who is reluctant. Cheers
Just showed back up on Samba for $20k. The condition is listed as “Good”. Curious what happened from the time it sold on Ebay to being re-listed on Samba?
After 73 bids from 13 bidders, this sold for $19,100, relatively close to my $20k neighborhood estimate.
