This mostly stock 1991 VW Vanagon Westfalia Weekender showed up for sale on The Samba classifieds last night and comes with a very proud asking price of $23,900. The prime selling features of this Westy include a recent “windows out” paint job in the original Orly Blue color, along with a fresh rebuild of the 2.1L engine. With the exception of the cruise control not functioning and a sticky rear hatch lock, the seller states this van is perfect and gives it a 9/10 or 10/10 in all areas. It comes with power everything including locks, windows, mirrors, cold A/C and an automatic transmission. While $24k is a tall order for a stock weekender, a professional windows out paint job and rebuilt 2.1L engine is going to run anywhere between $10k and $18k. This is reportedly the 3rd owner and they did provide the VIN ( WV2TB0251MG010471 )so you could do your homework on CarFax, AutoCheck, etc. Check it out just south of Los Angeles in Rancho Santa Margarita with an asking price of $23,900.

This Westy isn’t for everyone, however if you want something reliable and rust free with an auto trans and power everything, it’s a decent find for the So Cal area. Go Westy would change 3X this price for a similar van, and while it would have been more of a thorough restore, this Westy might not need that kind of pampering and attention and could be just fine as is.
