Original Post : Here’s a beauty in the Pacific Northwest I don’t think think I’ve seen before. Fresh on craigslist yesterday is this very restored 1984 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper with 238k miles and all kinds of new life put into her. It has a rebuilt engine with 40k miles on it, but the seller states is a 2.0L? Which is very uncommon, and maybe a Jetta engine? Most wasserboxers are either 1.9L or 2.1L, or built up to be larger than 2.1L, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard of a 2.0L WBX. Either way, the pictures show a well restored and good looking rig with new paint, bedliner on the rocker panels, fuel tank, fuel sending unit, power steering rack, brakes bushings, 15″ wheels / tires and a new GoWesty tent canvas. On the ends it’s got GoWesty front and rear bumpers with a roo bar on the front with some fog lights and a spare tire carrier wing arm on the rear. Interior wise it’s got newer tint, the extra double middle seat, later model front seats with the arms rests (original ’84s didn’t have arm rests) and a the dashboard cover with the cup holders and the map reading fold out table. $18k is a tall order for an ’84, but this one looks pretty primo. Find it for sale in Gresham, Oregon. Craigslist Link

UPDATE – I got the VIN ( WV2ZB0250EH087628 ), more pictures and some additional info from the seller. The mileage discrepancy on the Car Fax report is said to be due to the odometer being in KM’s, which means this is likely a Canadian import. The odometer picture I received reads 384 km.
Sorry about the confusion I created surrounding the engine. When you enter the VIN into carfax, it states that it is a 2.0L, which we all know is not the case. It is a 1.9L motor rebuilt with 40k miles on it. Thanks!
