Here’s an interesting find that’s going to be catching some eyeballs this week. This van is a 1990 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper with stock 2.1 L engine, stock automatic transmission and only 113k miles on the odometer. There’s quite a lot of color provided by the seller in terms of pictures (84 photos on Photobucket), including a variety of photos of the undercarriage, seams and minutia, which is super nice of them to provide. However, not much mechanical history is provided. The seller does provide the VIN WV2ZB0254LH002402 and the free eBay Auto Check report shows relatively believable mileage (only 7k in the past decade?). Also note the seller is brand new to eBay with only 1 feedback (positive) as a buyer, so be sure to make some human contact with them before handing the cash (as always).
- It looks like it’s great shape, and “might” be the original Bordeaux Red Metallic paint, however the “Westfalia” stencil on the rear of the van might mean otherwise.
- Nice 15″ Mercedes style wheels, fairly standard on nice Westys these days, but a nice upgrade no the less.
- According to the details, everything works. This includes the propane, stove, sink, fridge, lights, everything works.
- It’s really, really, clean. Even underneath. Someone took the time to detail this Westy, and overall appears to have been cosmetically well cared for.
Potential Not Awesome.
- While there’s a new tent canvas, there’s no windows… Who does that? It might be a thicker more heat retaining material, which could be a benefit if you’re sleeping 4 on cold nights.
- It is listed on The Samba for $25k, while not astronomical, the seller has likely set the reserve price at or near that. The seller knows what the market is willing to pay, and they’re likely searching for top dollar.
Depending on of course a variety of unknowns, I’d estimate this Westy is worth around $20k in the current market and region (PNW), possibly more. What do you think it’s worth?
