So many nice looking Westys went up on the market over the past few days. Here’s another! Check out this 1984 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper in original orange (ok, “assuan brown”) paint with stock rebuilt 1.9L engine, manual transmission and 244k well cared for miles. I love when folks go into proper detail when posting their vans, and this is one of those for sure. Just add a VIN, a title report and a video of it running/driving/etc and you’ve gone the full distance. Here’s the short version of the long post…. Clean title, CA smog cert in hand, registration good through Nov 2015, no rust, new pieces in the last while include: clutch master cylinder, clutch slave cylinder, brake master cylinder, front/rear brake pads/shoes, head gasket, water pump, cooling fan, distributor, CV joints, battery, ball joints, tie rods and other odds and ends. The fridge, stove, sink and propane tank all work flawlessly, both original tables, original curtains and screens, and a aux battery to run your toys. Many will say $14,900 for a 250k mile 1984 mostly stock Westy is a bit high, but the photos show why, and in this region, it will probably sell in less than a week. Find it for sale in the SF Bay Area (Noe Valley). Craigslist Link
Be sure to ask the owners how much it can tow, if they say anything more than a bike rack, be wary of the engine, as these are not designed to tow much, and this one has a nice looking ball hitch on it. Also, it comes with 4 Yakima wide body rack tabs on the pop top. Be sure to check for stress cracks around these, and this can happen if they are not installed perfectly or have been overloaded. Other than that, this looks like a great rig!
