Here’s an interesting find for your Tuesday morning. This van is a 1982 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper with the stock 1.6L Diesel (non turbo), stock manual transmission and slow as molasses, but will get you 25+mpg on the highway. It appears to be all original and unmodified, very clean with the original orange paint fading away. I’ve seen people try to slang similar rigs for well north of $20k. There’s no VIN or additional details provided, so I’m going to ask the seller to speak up a bit more, if it’s not already sold. Since you’ll never have to smog it, that means you could really do any engine swap you wanted and not have to worry in CA, as long as you keep your mouth shut 🙂 Find it for sale in Corona, California with an asking price of $14,500.

I definitely think this is a fair price considering the advertised condition and appearance. It is missing the slider door handle, and no word on whether or not the kitchen appliances work. It also looks like it could use a new pop top seal, and likely some other rubber as well.
