  1. Hi, we purchased a beautiful 1984 Westfalia for $20k back in the spring and have spent the summer and lots of dollars making it better. It is a Subaru 2.2 conversion 4 speed with only 149 k on the bus, originally delivered in Germany and then from the west coast so no rust. It rides high like a synchro. Non original but gorgeous turquoise blue paint with black lower panels. So much is new . . . And it’s easy to spend money with so many parts available…
    We’d like to break even at around $25k. Posssible? Going into storage in New Hampshire next week. The sad news is that we can’t use it to camp as it wakes up my wife’s latent claustrophobia.

  2. I’m currently selling this 1982, Westfaila Camper. Here is a description of an ad I have on I’d like to know if you’d be willing to post it on your blog and if you think I am asking too much or too little for it.


    Immaculate, beautifully kept 1982 VW Westfalia camper, located in Salt Lake City, Utah. The diesel engine was replaced in 2006 with a Tiico engine conversion and new transmission. Only 75k miles on Tiico engine. My mom has owned the van for the past 21 years – It was previously owned by only one other owner who barley drove it. My mom has taken very good care of the vehicle and has taken great pride in it. She has transferred the title over to me so I can sell it for her. The van has new tires, lift kit, new transmission, and all original interior and curtains. Propane stove and water faucet are in excellent working condition. Wonderful vehicle for someone who wants to start their adventures in a VW bus! Ready to roll across the country.
