1990 VW Vanagon Westfalia Multivan – $16k Los Angeles, CA

This van is a 1990 VW Vanagon Westfalia Multivan with unknown mileage, automatic transmission and a stock recently rebuilt 2.1L engine.  It appears to have it’s original Orly Blue paint job, which is one of the more sought after varietals of the later model years.  While the seller did include the VIN ( WV2TB0254LH057700 ), aside from the pictures minimal unique details about this van were provided.  I’d suggest doing a CarFax report if you’re serious about buying it. As far as the pictures, it appears to be fairly stock with the exception of the 15″ or 16″ wheels, the paint still shows well even in the shade, though the pop top coat looks a bit sun weathered.  There’s a punch crack in the front bumper, but other than that the body looks sound.  No pictures of the pop top, the the seller mentions it has a tear in it.  Even if it has 300k miles on the body, the price is still attractive at only $16k for a late model Westy in Southern California. The Samba Link

In 1990 and 1991, the “Weekender” was replaced with the “Multivan”, though they’re still very similar.  It’s always a trade off between the kitchen / no kitchen.  The main benefits of no kitchen are; more space, less rust, lower and more evenly distributed vehicle weight.

    I have exactly the same model but my 5-year old grandson wrecked it. I need a right passenger door, a rear hatch, a rear bumper and a right side rear side panel. If you have a source for parts let me know or if your model can be had for a much lower price or if you one that is scrap already.

      I have those parts from a 1984 Vanagon.
      What is your offer? It just needs to be high enough to get me motivated to find them….lol.

  2. i just ran the carfax on this- it has a potential odometer rollback issue -it had 198k in ’03 and then in ’05 it was at 99k… (seems more ‘certain’ than ‘potential’ to me) also it was in an accident 3/’14- it says ‘vehicle in rear end collision’
    i am not interested in this one but i have the unlimited car fax reports right now so i am using it whenever i can! hope this info helps someone who is interested in it, cheers!

      I have the exact same model here in Maine. It was damaged by my 5-year old grandson and I need a right passenger door, a rear hatch and a quarter of a right side real panel and a rear bumper. Any ideas where to get those parts or if subject car can be had for scrap value.? Thanks for your reply.
