    We have a 1978 Westfalia pop up camper that was bought new in Germany and shipped back to the states. It is in rough shape in a barn. I’m not sure that it runs. It has been sitting for a long time. The inside seems to be in good shape. Do you know where I should post a project vehicle. We need it gone ASAP. I have pictures if you are interested.

  2. I’m offering my never used sprinter Westfalia for sale:
    Absolutely like new!! I’m the original owner bought it new in 2007, and never used it, 4K original miles (miles are from the dealer delivery from east coast to west coast dealer and to SLC). All Westfalia options (some only in Germany available) new condition!! I just took it out of storage and had it fully serviced, including all new tires (5) and a new battery and master break cylinder. Extremely rare find! Only 250 were ever imported to the US and I’m certain, it is the best available! $120,000 firm, serious enquirers only.

  3. Hello all,

    I have finally decided to sell my Westy and have listed it on eBay (ugh):
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/154275673319

    Frankly, as a single working grand/parent of two Zoom-schooling elementary kids, I don’t have time for any BS, let alone the random comments and, well, BS, that eBay is delivering to me. I am hoping to find an authentically interested audience/buyer here for my dear Goldie. She’s a treasure.

    Check out the link and let me know if you have any questions: lisadanhi@gmail.com

    Thank you for your time,
    Lisa

    I put my Vanagon Westy up on ebay yesterday for auction and I haven’t gotten any real attention on it. Willy (the van) and I have been on so many adventures since I’ve had him, but I started really working and doing college and everything, so I just can’t give him the attention he deserves anymore as much as I wish I could.

  9. I’m selling my dad’s 1987 Volkswagon Vanagon Westfalia (Westy). He was the second owner, purchased from the original owner around 2002. Both owners live in Michigan and took very good care of it, parking it under roof or in a garage the vast majority of the time. My dad is 84 now, and cannot use the van, unfortunately. He spent many nights in it while fishing the Au Sable river in Michigan, pulling into rustic State forest campgrounds and sleeping/resting in this Westy. He really enjoyed this vehicle, and it fit his personality well.

    Most repair records are available, and I’ll add this to this ad when I get the folder with receipts/papers from my dad.

    The vehicle is in great condition, original 4 cylinder engine, automatic transmission, and no rust (that I can see). The original owner had it “Ziebart”ed, which seems to have really worked. Plus, I know my dad didn’t drive it in Michigan winters, and probably the original owner didn’t either.
    133,915 miles, accurate odometer reading.

    The original owner bought some nice accessories, I’m not familiar with their names but things like a little hook that goes into the rear door hatch, allowing air to circulate but there is netting that fills that gap also.

    This is a classic vehicle, and talking by phone is required if interested, and serious buyers only please. Asking price is $14,995.00, or best offer. I’m motivated to sell it, but not desperate!

    Pictures are representative, and I can share more via a Google Drive folder once we have spoken by phone.

  10. 1997 Eurovan Full Camper (Winnebago) pop up top Price: 19,000
    going to buy some land so will sell this below market value if it’s a fast sale!

    Van is located in NW Florida, Crystal river area (home of the Florida Manatee and great springs to kayak in!)
    has 170K and runs, drives and stops great!! has the GoWesty lift and Alum wheel kit with one extra full size GoWesty rim and tire plus also have 4 spare Michelin HydroEdge to go with it but all are over 6 years old FYI. (total of 8 identical tires included)
    NO RIPS OR TEARS in the seats and has newer vinyl flooring in the back area too!
    Always stored in the shade and no cracks in the dash or major fading of the interior 🙂
    Kitchen and sink is perfect and stove appears to have possibly been never cooked in (we always used a campstove outside since we have had it)
    Paint is good and had a little rust on the inner wheel arches so it had a lower respray in white and some rust back behind the bumper (not structural and only in the rear behind the factory spare tire area) factory spare tire is also mounted there as well in addition to the GoWesty extra wheel we carry inside since I have so many tires 😉
    never had a tow hitch so never towed anything and transmission works fine (that can be an issue and this one is good!)
    AC works but just developed a leak in the condensor so will blow cold when charged up and can show you and charge it upon pickup.
    Pop top is very good and only has a few small rips ONLY in the screen that I patched with a screen tape kit ( 2 holes less than 3 inches and they are now patched) all zippers work perfect and bed area is great up there.
    Fridge works sometimes (they are tempermental as you may know but when it lights up on gas it is very cold)
    I have a 3 inch folder of all work done on the vehicle and it has had alot of upgrades and mechanical services in the past.
    Full history of vehicle’s life included in the folder for the new owner.
    always used OEM filters and did oil changes often and will include spare filters, parts and fluids to the new owner

    It’s hard to sell this but we have a sprinter now and want to buy some land that is for sale VERY QUICKLY so first 19K gets this VW!! come camp with us and see it and either drive it away or get a u-haul tow dolly for cheap and I will show you how to load it to tow home (I own a tow dolly and it can be safely towed “front wheels up” on one like from U-haul easily)
    my mobile is 305-216-7020 if you want to chat or facetime to see it.

  14. Aloha,

    Scooby has been part of the family for 11 years. He has traveled from Alaska to Mexico by way of Canada several times. One year a 4 month 15k road trip from WA to DC to FL to CA, zig zagging all the way. Crystal and I spent a month in 2016 traveling from NoCal to SoCal on my book tour showing her sights she has never seen. Camping at Veterans Park in Monterey, running the coastline- Big Sur. He has traveled the seas to HI and back and is now with us in SoCal, SD… As much as it pains us to find a new home for him, it is also time to close the final chapter of the past and move in to the future which brings us lots of different adventures. He will always have a place in our hearts.

    Mahalo

    We love this van, but are switching to a truck based camper, so we are sadly selling our van. This has been my daily driver & road trip van for the past 5 years. We’ve been across the country a couple times, and been on countless camping trips with the van.

    Van is very reliable, starts every time, keeps up with highway traffic. Happy with the Subaru EJ22 engine. Handles mountain passes reasonably well, I try not to push it too hard when going through the mountains. Likes to cruise around 60/65 MPH. Awesome for camping, diesel furnace for warm nights.

    The current list of issues is pretty small, but want to describe them all in detail. It’s always had an intermittent idle issue, which is slightly annoying, but not annoying enough to bring it to a mechanic. I’ve been fine with it. Van is unaffected when driving down the road. There is a knock when turning left and hitting the gas. Recently I had my mechanic look at it, and they said everything looks fine and did not recommend replacing the CV joints. Intermittent coolant overflow drips a little bit after parking. I’ve replaced it, but it still sometimes drips a little. Otherwise, the cooling system works fine, don’t have to add coolant, etc… No other leaks. Some seam rust, see photos. Tires will need replacing in the next 10K or so miles. This is my daily driver, these are the issues I was fine driving with.

    Purchased in 2014 with around 170,XXX miles on it. The following work was done in 2014 prior to me buying the van
    – 1991 Subaru EJ22 KEP conversion (don’t know total miles on engine)
    – Rebuilt transmission
    – New gas tank
    – New General Grabber AT tires
    – New battery
    – New skylight
    – New tent canvas
    – New topper seals
    – Front spindles from 86 Vanagon (I think they will accept bigger brakes)
    – New paint / respray
    – Reupholstered front seats
    – Removed insulation behind cabinets
    – Removed fridge & converted to storage
    – Removed propane & converted stove to small bottles
    – H4 headlights

    Since 2014, I have added the following
    – Rocky Mountain Westy Twin Peaks rear bumper with hitch
    – House battery under driver seat
    – Yandina battery combiner (combines house battery to alternator when van is running)
    – Blue Sea fuse panel
    – Diesel furnace for heating while parked & sleeping, runs on house battery
    – JVC KD-X210 digital media receiver (No CD player, aux / usb in only)
    – 4 Pioneer TS-D1002R speakers + Dual brand subwoofer under rear bench
    – Radio & subwoofer run on house battery with dash power switch
    – Dimmable LED light strip above stove & sink, runs on house battery
    – Headlight relays
    – Starter relay
    – Diesel Volkswagen starter + adapter
    – Cupholder
    – Fire extinguisher
    – New Bilstein HD front shocks
    – Arduino based LCD gauge outputs the following: Outside temp, speed, rpm, oil pressure, coolant temp, volts
    – Smallcar speedometer based VSS

    Work Done Since 2014
    – New clutch
    – New timing belt
    – Transmission oil change
    – CV joint replaced
    – New rear brake shoes and drums
    – New oil pan
    – Regular oil & filter changes with Rotella T6 synthetic & Subaru filters

    Van comes with
    – Tire chains for back wheels
    – EvoScan Software + USB cable – Reads Subaru Select Monitor I for engine diagnostics
    – Spare Parts
    – Bentley repair manual

    Spare parts
    – Subaru ECU
    – Subaru MAF sensor
    – Subaru knock sensor
    – Subaru alternator belts
    – VW coolant overflow tank
    – VW ignition switch

    Current issues
    – Intermittent idle issues, highway driving unaffected
    – Some seam rust, see photos
    – Pinstripe from hitting a baby stroller when backing up
    – Coolant overflow drips a little bit after running
    – Tires likely need replacing within 10K miles
    – Knock when turning left and under load, mechanic said does not need work now
    – Sink faucet leaks slightly when on
    – Cracked dashboard

    The main reason we are selling is that my wife had a knee injury and can no longer drive a clutch. We were setting this van up to be our long term adventure camper and spared no expense in the complete mechanical overhaul.

    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.

  31. I’m currently selling this 1982, Westfaila Camper. Here is a description of an ad I have on TheSamba.com 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.

    Thanks,
    Donna

    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.

  36. 1985 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper Van adventure wagon
    Price: $18500

    This has been our adventure wagon. We drove all over on numerous camping trips, and more. When we got it, you could tell that the previous owner spared no expense to make it the best running, and best camping, Westy out there. It’s solid, reliable, and comfortable. From the stroked engine that cruises easily at 70 MPH to the solar-powered refrigerator that’ll keeps ice cream solid and ready, to the memory foam mattress… this is a great van that continued to keep us happy campers for years.

    The van has had a number of upgrades/work completed:
    – Engine overhauled and stroked to 2.2 liters, lets you keep highway speeds going up the passes.
    – Transmission replaced with a completely rebuilt unit.
    – Fuel, clutch and brake lines replaced with new (very important to prevent your nice van from going up in flames).
    – Complete coolant system (radiator, hose, fittings) replaced with new (no overheating problems here).
    – Front and rear brakes serviced (pads, drums and calipers).
    – Rear wheel bearings replaced.
    – Front upper ball joints and control bushings replaced.

    Plus some work to keep this van in great running condition:
    – Shifter bushings replaced in late 2012
    – Fuel tank replaced in 2013
    – Rear shocks replaced with Konis in 2013
    – Muffler replaced in 2013
    – Fuel pump replaced and fuel filter converted to late-model large-style filter in 2013
    – Air flow meter replaced in 2013
    – Engine re-ringed in 2014
    – Front shocks replaced with Konis in 2014
    – New ignition system – mid-2019; starts right up.
    – Four brand new tires mid-2019

    And some perks to make it even better in the out and about:
    – Pop top tent replaced with a GoWesty heavy synthetic tent (although since then a couple of small holes have worn through)
    – Yakima roof rack, with a basket for extra hauling
    – Pop top lift assist struts, to help you lift it when you load up the roof
    – GoWesty “Wasser-Stopper” pop top rainfly
    – Upper bed foam replaced with memory foam
    – Interior wood floor, pops out for easy cleaning
    – TruckFridge 49 low-power electric fridge
    – Fresh water pump replaced in 2013
    – Sink faucet replaced in 2013
    – Grey water holding tank, so that you can camp in all parks and not dump water on the ground
    – Propane tank replaced in 2012
    – Camper hook-ups (water and shore power) replaced in 2012
    – GoWesty plate steel bumpers
    – GoWesty “no flop” side-view mirrors
    – SkyLight and seals replaced in 2013

    The electrics on this van are pretty sweet, as well:
    – 100W roof-mounted solar panel
    – 30-amp MPPT solar power charge controller
    – 1000W inverter to power AC devices from battery
    – 45-amp power converter to charge batteries and operate fridge from shore power
    – All interior and marker lights replaced with LEDs
    – Multi-color LED lights with remote
    – SRM4D deep cycle battery, go for a week off grid with no problem

    A few things you should be aware of:
    – The new pop top had a couple of small holes (less than 1/4″) worn through it from the bolts where the roof rack mounts. There are now iron-on patches in matching materials, that I’ve never gotten around to putting on.
    – There are quite a few rock dings and beauty marks, especially on the front hood.
    – There is a little seam rust. The driver’s side has been expertly restored by a local van shop, but there’s also some seam rust on some of the other body panels.
    – The window washer pump doesn’t work. I’ve tried the simple things, but it hasn’t been a big enough deal for me to get super bothered by it.
    – The high beam indicator lamp doesn’t work. The high beams are plenty bright, though.
    – 265,900 miles

    With all of that, this is still a fantastic bargain for a great Westy, that will keep you running for a good long while. Every major mechanical system on this van has been replaced or overhauled, using high quality components and the best shops in the area. You’ll really love this Westy.

    We have the clear title in hand, all mechanical and work records back to 2004, and are not interested in trades.

  37. I very much appreciate if you could post my 1986 Westfalia Weekend Camper on your web site. I have send you an e-mail too.

  39. “Ruby Jean” 1988 Westy Camper

    MAKE AN OFFER – we’ll sell to a good home. We bought her for $17K and we put in a $5000 new transmission last year. She needs work on her cooling system and possibly her engine, but she’s worth it.

    For more pics check out: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1tHlcQZcN-VMc8L6H7S_CWKBHsx4SuD6t

    For more info please call or email Jess. We are willing to part with Ruby Jean for good offer. She has a new transmission, has had regular oil changes and maintenance. She’s an automatic with approx 160K miles on her and we’re only her third owner?? She was shipped stateside from a serviceman in Germany, hence the sweet EU plates. She’s crushed some major coast-to-coast and then-some road trips: Alaska to Arizona; Arizona to Wyoming; Wyoming to Norway House, Manitoba, to New York back to Wyoming; Jackson Hole to Southern California; and then last summer Wyoming to New York, up around Lake Superior and back to our Jackson Hole home! She’s a trooper and will provide you with amazing journeys, and we are sad that we can no longer give her the love she needs. She’s served us well and we will miss her. WE WILL MISS HER. We have maintained her and made some improvements to her: three windowed canopy, safari headlights, hardwood floors etc! But it just doesn’t make sense for us to keep her in such a cold climate. We can only take her out in the summer months and she’ll need work done on her coolant system and potentially her engine. We also have a new metal coolant package purchased from GoWesty that we’ll throw in with the deal – it’ll be worth it to install. We will give you a screaming deal SO MAKE AN OFFER. SERIOUSLY. We can possibly transport as well. Let’s talk. If you’re really psyched about her we really will make the price right.

    Venmo, Cash, and other money sending apps will likely be ok for sale too.

  42. 1991 WESTY WOLFSBURG WITH 132K MILES

    It is a sad day, but it is time for my Westy to find a new home. She has been lovingly cared for and on many many fine adventures, but the time has come. I am only selling because I have reached a “seasoned” point in life and purchased a slightly larger camper trailer with indoor plumbing. Over the 12 years I have owned her, I have made many improvements and completed many repairs on her. Almost every system on her has been replaced, improved or rebuilt, including the engine, fuel system, suspension system, axles, camping system and brakes. She has all LED lights inside, is an automatic, a 50 AH house battery, corrected wiring to increase headlight brightness, upgraded GW faucet, GW mats all around and 5 new tires. I also have a bus depot awning that is included. She may have the only original refrigerator that will make ice and will easily start on propane. All camping equipment works, the canvas has no holes or tears, the carpet, upholstery and paint are in great shape for a 30 year old girl. She has normal wear and tear that would be expected for a 30 year old vehicle. I am the third owner and have all maintenance records from the original owner since the van was purchased. At one point I had the original window sticker, but can’t seem to find that. If I do find it, it will be included. Still have the original two ice trays for the refrigerator.

    Maintenance History Since I purchased her:
    –I originally purchased this van in 07/2007 with 90,457 miles. When she was purchased I replaced multiple gaskets and seals to eliminate a few oil leaks. Replaced the rusted propane tank.

  46. 1975 VW Bus Westfalia Camper Type 2 – clear title -turn key -ready to drive home or start your road trip!

    Meticulously restored over the past 10 years. Fully gutted and serious attention to detail has been given to this rare condition and configured Westy. Hard to find a late bay camper in such good shape. She has been an amazing project and its time to let her go to some new folks looking for an adventure and will enjoy her as much as I did.

    Restoration Specs:

    Years of professional VW service and tune-ups from Veedub in Austin,TX with receipts. Rebuilt well running 2.0L fuel-injected engine was swapped out from the original 1800cc long block.The larger more powerful 2.0L features hydraulic valve lifters, eliminating the need to periodically adjust the valve clearances as on earlier models.

    The original 1975 interior layout was removed and I started with sound deadning and thermal shield to the entire shell. Makes the bus a lot quieter and on the road and a nice thud when shutting the doors instead of the tin can close.

    Perfect condition cabinets and z-bed were pulled and installed from a 1979 Westfalia and relaminated giving a better late bay interior lay out. Ice box was removed and converted into custom storage and extra seating making it a one of a kind layout and the best use of space for the interior in my humble opinion. Plastic interior paneling was replace with wood on the whole bus including ceiling and kick plates.

    ZERO RUST/ and Brand new paint. (original orange to original VW Sage green (L63H) match
    Brand New Pop -Top canvas just installed (with option to fully unzip front section mesh, which is nice )
    New seat fabric and seat cushions
    Bluetooth stereo with 10”JL audio sub , 6×9 s, and side door 5 1/2(sound is amazing)
    Stack of original and 3rd party manuals books- I read every page 🙂
    New bosch fule pump
    Always changed fuel filter
    Replaced Bosch ignition coil
    New air-cooled engine seal
    New deep cycle battery
    Vanagon seats installed with option to rear face passenger front seat on swivel
    New tail lights
    New Spedo cable
    New turn signal lights
    New Westfalia decals

    Custom wooden glove box

    New wheel well carpet under front seats
    Interior pop top spotless and clean ( you will see mold in other buses in that area)
    Brooks leather wrapped over steering wheel
    Lockable yakama roof rack with bolted high clearance base and wind shield
    Rare VW OEM square removable camping seat included

    1988 Volkswagen Vanagon (White)
    Automatic
    Asking $29,500

    Total miles put on new Subaru 2.2L EJ22 engine: 20k
    Total miles on vehicle: 154k

    I travel for work – more time out of town than in. When I am gone, the van is stored in my carport. When I am home, I take the van all around AZ and southern Utah for camping. After every single trip, I thoroughly clean the van from top to toe. You might say obsessively. It has it’s quirks like all of these vans, but nothing at all serious. Runs great. Seriously, if you haven’t experienced the difference between a VW engine and the Subaru conversion, you can’t imagine the power difference.

    I will only consider serious buyers – definitely no tire kickers, or lookey-loos.

    Previous owner purchased in March 2013 and has had $28k work done since then, including a new Subaru engine installed by the BusLab and a new transmission from a reputable VW shop in Marin, CA (all other work also done by the BusLab, with detailed invoices on what was fixed or replaced).

    Some highlights:

    New Subaru 2.2 conversion done by BusLab in Berkeley (May 2013)
    – Less than 9k miles on EJ22 engine
    – Read more about BusLab Subaru conversions: http://www.buslab.com/subaru-conversions.html
    -A/C conversion done March 2017
    -Radiator Hoses replaced March 2017

    Full tuneup done by BusLab in Berkeley (May 2013)
    – About ~$7k work done (parts+labor), including new brake hoses, fuel tank, front and rear wipers, side mirrors and more

    New transmission

    New tires with less than 2k miles on them (Sept 2013)
    – Eurolook Wheel and Nokian 15″ Tire package from Van Cafe (205/70/15 Entyre) ($1000): http://www.van-cafe.com/home/van/page_1218_1408/eurolook-wheel-and-nokian-tire-package-15.html

    GoWesty Rubber Mat Set (front, middle, rear; ~$350) (Sept 2013)
    http://www.gowesty.com/ec_view_category.php?id=315

    A few more details on the condition:

    == Aesthetics ==
    Overall very clean interior. No tears/rips in pop-top. CD/iPhone player. Stove/Sink clean (though I never use them). Fridge is clean but I don’t rely on it to keep things cold. Floors are clean thanks to the GoWesty rubber mats I put in.

    A couple things to note about the exterior:
    – Dent on the sliding passenger door
    – Crack on the roof window/plastic opening; functionally okay so I haven’t replaced

    == Mechanics ==
    There have only been a few issues I’ve encountered since I’ve owned it, all of which have been fixed. Otherwise, this van has been a pleasure to drive.

    – Right after the engine conversion, the engine would sometimes stall. The BusLab said this was normal after the conversion and would eventually go away. So far, that’s been true — haven’t had any issues since about a month after the conversion, in 2013.

    – Transmission fluid was leaking so I resealed that in March 2014, and then replaced the transmission a few months later.

    – Cracked fuel fitting; replaced in May 2015

    I can send more photos/videos to serious buyers.

    1987 VW Vanagon Westfalia Weekender – Wolfsburg edition
    We are selling our beloved Vanagon. We purchased it in 2003 from the son of the original owner who lived in California. It had no rust when we got it, and because we’ve kept it garaged and only driven it for fun trips in the summer/fall, it still has no rust. It’s in excellent shape for a 1987 Vanagon!
    A little Vanagon history: From 1985-1987 VW made a special edition of the Vanagon called the Wolfsburg Weekender. Of course, as a Camper, it has a pop-top and upstairs bed. And back in the cabin, the backseat converts to another bed for two. Instead of taking up space with the fridge, stove, sink, or cabinet assembly the rear seat is full width to accommodate three adults (rather than the shorter seat in full campers that only accommodates two). Behind the driver’s seat, the Wolfsburg Weekender has a rear facing seat with storage underneath. It can hold 6 people driving, 4 people sleeping, and 3-4 eating at the pop up table. No pets have ever been in it. No smoking has ever occurred in it either. Just pleasant memories.
    Clean CarFax report available upon request.

    • Garaged entire life, excellent condition. Drove as a leisure vehicle, never drove in winter – not a bit of rust. All the paint is still shiny and in excellent shape (a few tiny chips here and there and I counted three small dings) -the paint not faded at all, all window rubber trim is in excellent condition. One headlight has a crack and the front screen has some holes in it, but it’s really, really clean and runs great!
    • Original engine. This is the 2.1 liter, water cooled engine. Better power than the 1.9 liter engines.
    • 130,700 Miles
    • VIN: WV2ZB025XHH054088
    • Second owner
    • Original interior NO RIPS (the seats have had seat covers protecting them)
    • 4 speed manual
    • Power steering
    • A/C
    • Cruise control
    • External temp sensor
    • AM/FM Cassette radio
    • Rear wiper/defrost
    • intermittent wipers
    • Curtains are all in excellent shape
    • Includes the original front window curtain

    Here’s a list of all I’ve done to improve it:
    • New alternator (GoWesty)
    • New oxygen sensor (GoWesty)
    • New rear axles
    • Alloy mag wheels from GoWesty
    • New tires
    • K&N cleanable air filter
    • 2” receiver hitch, with trailer light wiring kit (we used hitch for a bike rack)
    • Fuel tank seals recently replaced
    • Flushed cooling system several times
    • Changed oil regularly (Mobile 1, 0-W40, European Blend)
    • Locking fuel cap
    • Very creative tube storage under the body (must see to understand)
    • Bilstein shocks
    • GoWesty headlight upgrade kit (SO much brighter!)
    • 12v power ports
    • GoWesty Auxiliary battery charging relay (it has two batteries)
    • Insulation to quiet the ride
    • Spare gas can (stored in external luggage tray)
    This is a super clean, excellent condition Vanagon! It is 100% ready to hit the road on a multi-month trip!

    I have a 1990 Westy that was recently in an accident. Unfortunately, it appears my insurance company is going to total it. It has all original interior in excellent condition. Two years ago I had a GW 2.3 Waterboxer long block installed by Peace Vans in Seattle. That engine has 18,000 miles on it. It also got new 3 window canvas installed, auxillary battery system and new exhaust system. It also has a propex heater and blazecut. The front passenger door, slider door and, from what the body shop reports, probably suspension damage but doesn’t appear to have any problem with the frame. I will learn on Monday (June 17) what my buy back amount will be. You would be buying a vehicle with a salvaged title. If interested, email me. I can supply pictures and give you as much information as I can. I just hate to see this beauty go to auction. The van is located in the Portland Oregon area.

    • Find the Vanagon Owners Group on Facebook and let them know. So sorry for your loss.

  51. 1985 Vanagon Westfalia Wolfburg Weekender
    – New 1.9L 2200cc GoWesty Rebuilt Engine (~7000 miles on it) with the GoWesty ROAD Warrior Warrantly
    – New Exhaust System with Cat
    – New Fuel Tank
    – New Starter
    – New Throttle linkage and cable
    – ARB Awning and More!

    Currently runs fine, but should have fuel pump and/or filter replaced prior to a weekend adventure. Would recommend trailer to pick-up instead of drive away as condition is worse in heat. I am moving and have too many cars and need to sell my Westy with no time to do repairs. Over $8000 in upgrades, listed for $11k on Ebay, $19k buy it now.

  52. The Green Machine!

    1982 VW Vanagon Westfalia
    2.0 liter engine air cooled
    4 speed manual transmission

    Engine less than 5K. Adventure ready!

    Lots of work has been done during the past 5 years:
    New engine, clutch, oil cooler, engine mounts, belts, filters, battery, fuel lines, brakes, tank resealed, and tons more!

    Mechanically it’s in tip-top condition!
    Tires have plenty life left.

    It has a functioning original Dometic fridge, a propane stove, running water, operational sink and LED lights. There are curtains throughout, including one that snaps-on in front of the windshield.

    Paint is not original and overall it shows wear, bumps, nicks and scratches, as expected for a 37 year old van. The pop top canvas has no rips but does show a little weather and has a broken front zipper.

    The Green Machine is ready for summer!

    It’s a blast to drive, she puts a smile on your face. We’ve taken her to the Redwoods, San Francisco, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Crater Lake, Olympic Park… all throughout the Cascades up and down the West Coast.

    Overall clean and mechanically sound!

    Please read the entire ad before responding, if the ad is up its still available. Please do not call or text me asking if the bus is still available. If you see the ad, its still available!! Purchased from second owner.

    If you are looking for the ultimate California surf bus, you have found it. She has just over 1500 miles on brand new engine and transmission.

    I have over $18,000 in receipts that the new owner will be taking with her. Just about everything has been replaced on this bus. New engine, transmission, upholstery and panels, gas gauge sender, tires, brakes, clutch, carb, battery, too much too list.

    No need to get a tow truck to pick her up. Come and drive her and you will be pleasantly surprised of how smooth she drives, steers and brakes. 1971 has disc brakes so she stops easily on a dime. Then you can drive her home with no problems, even if its cross country.

    Sink works, all the westfalia camping gear is there including upper cot, childs cot and the bug net for the rear hatch.

    Tagged until may 2020, she is current on registration and insured with classic car insurance. Clean California title in my name.

    No lowballers, as I said I have 18K in receipts I will give to the new owner documenting every single part that was replaced.

    Call or text if I have not answered your questions. Serious inquiries only, no tire kickers. Video can be sent upon request.

    For sale is a running 1986 Volkswagen Vanagon GL Westfalia camper van. Manual transmission, rear wheel drive, odometer is broken but I’d estimate it has 210,000 miles on the stock 2.1L 4-cylinder engine. Definitely a project van, and I’ll go over it in detail in person, but here’s a brief overview.

    The good:
    -Frame is still intact, no rust affecting structural integrity.
    -Interior is in good condition in terms of cleanliness and functionality, some of it needs to be worked on but it was well maintained. New wood flooring was installed as well.
    -Tent is in perfect condition.
    -Swivel seats.
    -Comes with an AC/DC converter. Perfect if you’re planning a solar hookup.
    -Tires are not necessarily new anymore, but they still have A LOT of tread left.
    -Starter replaced a while back.
    -New battery.
    -New front break pads and disks.
    -New rear hatch struts and new front wiper blades.
    -Fuel lines have been replaced with GoWesty’s fuel line replacement kit.
    -Purchase of the van includes a BlazeCut automatic fire suppression system automotive extinguisher (6′) and a front windshield rubber seal (both have not yet been installed).
    -Thermal windows (gets toasty inside in the winter).
    -New engine compartment lid seal.
    -Rebuilt steering (power steering).
    -New steering joints and terminals.
    -Engine has been tuned up (new fuel filter, spark plugs, ignition wires, distributor, rotor, air filter).
    -New alternator.
    -New fuel pump.
    -New water pump.
    -Fuel injectors cleaned and seals have been replaced.
    -AC works great but…

    The bad:
    -AC won’t shut off when the car is on. Faulty wire? Not sure, haven’t gotten to the bottom of it yet.
    -Headlights won’t turn on but high beams work.
    -Oil leak (but what old VW doesn’t leak oil?).
    -Fridge & stove do not work.
    -The plastic cover for the fuse panel and underside of the steering column is missing from when steering was rebuilt.
    -Speedometer does not work.
    -Hand break does not engage.
    -Driver side mirror is broken.
    -Exhaust system will need to be replaced.
    -Temperamental when turning on. Sometimes it won’t start right away.
    -RUST, RUST, RUST.

    Asking $6,500, but open to negotiate. Title in hand, sold as is. Trades will be considered.

    She is road worthy but still needs work to be road-trip worthy, but she’s an excellent candidate if you’re interested in the van life, road trips, or recreational camping.

  68. Hi – we’ve posted our 2003 Eurovan Weekender (Westfalia poptop) on Craigslist, The Samba, Facebook and eBay. Here’s the info in case you would like to post it here. (only 85K miles)

    We bought it fall 2003 with 14,000 miles on it – it had been used by a VW exec for 1 year. We’ve had it since. Took a long trip around USA when kids were small, and loved it! After that, used for camping trips, lots of sports tournaments, and picking up furniture from Craigslist.

    M/V Weekender model with pop-up Westfalia pop-top sleeping tent. Not a “camper” model in that it doesn’t have stove, water etc. It does have a small electric cooler under the passenger seat behind driver; this runs off a separate 12V battery under driver’s seat, which is recharged by the engine.

    VERY LOW mileage – only 85,250. Original engine! We repainted it a few years ago to protect the top; same color as original. Windshield replaced in spring 2018 – nice and clear!

    Seats 7 with seat belts. Kids loved using it for team tournaments. Seats face each other with table for playing games, eating, etc.

    With roof popped up, you can comfortably sleep 4 people and can set it up in the rain without going outside.

    Included: full set of curtains, including one that covers windshield, plus cargo net and mosquito net for back hatch so you can sleep with hatch open. Leather steering wheel cover.

    Alpine bluetooth CD/stereo with USB for phones etc. Mic in dash for bluetooth phone calls.

    Includes full set of 4 snow tires plus summer tires. Also has built-in hitch for bike rack or towing.

    Includes a high-quality van cover ordered from a company that makes them specifically for this vehicle.
    We kept it in the garage during winters until last year when we sold the house, so we just bought the cover last winter.

  78. Here is the link to my Craigslist ad for my 81 Vanagon Wesfalia. It’s a great deal given the mileage/body. Runs and drives great! https://nh.craigslist.org/cto/d/1981-volkswagen-vanagon/6679479193.html

  79. After travelling through the states and Canada with this van for the last 2 months, and now it’s time for us to let it go since we’re moving onto Europe. We are the 3rd owner of this vehicle and it has no history of accidents etc… it has a clean record.
    The van is in perfect shape. We’ve installed a brand new cooling system (new radiator and radiator fan) only 2 weeks ago, and we’ve also installed a new propane tank, extra fog lights (Hella fog lights), new stereo system and bought a new battery.
    The engine is also new and it only has about 9000km on it. The brake was installed by the previous owner around 6 months ago so that’s looking good too.
    Basically the van has new parts from the bottom to the top. If you’re looking for a van to travel around, this is perfect for you.

    First off why are we selling this, having it less then a year! We run a campground so therefore we work during the Summer. We thought we would use it more often and we didn’t. So we figure we can put the money to better use in our life. I took one trip other than bringing it to Golden from Vancouver Island, and that was to Leavenworth WA. and it was fantastic. Since we have had it we have had it serviced for a overflow pipe on the radiator that needed replacing at a Selkirk Automotive that specializes in VW’s here in Golden BC they checked it over.

    Previous owner invested $60,000 Comes with so many extra’s listed below. Appraised June 24 2017 for $54,000 Cad Just has fully detailed inside and out kept in heated Garage by both myself and previous owner during Winter.

  93. I’m selling my clean 85′ Westfalia with a rebuilt engine for 15K

    The good:

    -It’s in really great shape I barely ever drove it. 159K 90% from the previous owner, and their parents.
    -Rebuilt engine. This is a GREAT PERK that sets this VW above others since you’ll have to do this eventually on a Westfalia and it will cost you 5-10K depending on the engine rebuild.
    -It comfortably sleeps 4 two up top in the pop top, two below. I added a custom super comfy bottom bed topper from GoWesty.
    -It has a fridge, a sink, and a gas-powered stove. I installed a brand new custom trucker’s fridge because the ones that come with the 85’ VW are basically useless.
    -It has two foldable tables and a custom removal 3rd seat with a storage compartment.
    -The only miles on the new engine are the one I put on it driving from CA.
    -I had a second battery and an inverter installed which means you can run just about any electrical device directly off of the van. Computer, microwave, etc. (there are some limits to what you could run but… it’s pretty robust.)
    -Like I mentioned it’s in really great shape, with everything in good working order.

    The bad:

    -There is sun damage to the dashboard and various plastic parts in the van.
    -The pop top/tent material is getting old and will need to replaced eventually.
    -I lost a hubcap. 🙂
    -Mudflaps on two front tires have been removed.
    -Minor dent in the back right.
    -Some nicks and other tiny dents.
    -Exterior stickers are sun warn.
    -The battery seems to drain if you don’t drive it for extended periods. I take the battery prongs off when I know it’s going to sit for a week.
    -It’s a VW which means it doesn’t go more than 50mph uphill. 🙂

    -Bottom line It’s not showroom quality but if you just want to enjoy the benefits of having a Westfalia, it’s a great buy.

  94. 1990 Westfalia Vanagon – T3 California Hightop – Diesel – 162.000 miles – $40.000

    My boyfriend and I are selling our best fellow traveller. We bought it in Belgium and shipped it to Canada to start our one year trip. We crossed Canada and the US and we are currently in Mexico. We will be back in California to sell the van in June before heading back to Belgium. We certainly wish we could bring our van back to Belgium with us but the shipping is quite expensive and we are on the road for one year now so you can imagine we are running out of money.

    We are the third owner. The second one was a specialized garage where we bought the van. So we have every bills from the beginning. It is in really good condition. We didn’t have any big problem since we started our trip. Here is what we did on the road : we changed the shoks in September 2017, the tires in December 2017, the vehicle battery in December 2017, the auxiliary battery in March 2018, the diesel filter in April 2018. We also changed the oil every 8.000 km.

    Before leaving we also lifted it up a little bit. We changed the side mirros. We installed a solar pannel system. We put an aditional locker on the side door. And we installed a road shower on the left side. Here is what it looked like in video before leaving Belgium (english subtitles) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3HZtYPufMk&t=2s

    For the inside we just added a couple of storages (and a wooden box where fits the auxilary battery and the converter), we updated the fridge, we changed the floor and the curtains. Besides that everything is original. There is a big propane tank for cooking. The water tank is 55 liters (14.5 gallons). There is also a tank for dirty water. Everything is working perfectly.

    The van is currently registered and imported in Quebec. The van will be available from around June 15th.

    As we are going back to Belgium by plane we can leave everything in the van if your are interested in (excepted for our clothes. :)) like a good tool box, a jump starter, reflectors for all the windows, spare parts, etc.

    – Turbo Diesel 1.6 (engine was completly reviewed by the specialized garage where we bought the van and has only 50.000 km/31.000 miles since then)
    – 51 Kw 70 PS 5 Speed Gearbox 46,664 DM
    – 55 liters / 14.5 gallons freshwater tank with electric pump and lockable cap
    – 20 liters / 5.3 waste water tank under the vehicle
    – External 8kg LPG tank and 3 tap control
    – 5 tires : 205/75R-15 General Grabber AT 2
    – Truck Fridge 49
    – Road shower (5 gallons of water)
    – New syncro side mirrors
    – Gowesty bumpers front and rear
    – Tool box, diesel tanks and spare tire from Gowesty at the back
    – 2m70/88.5 feet hight
    – Original Westfalia inside
    – Bed unfold 188 cm x 120 cm / 616,8 feet x 39,4 feet
    – 2 double bed

  95. We are selling our beloved 1987 VW Best Westie

    The time has come to sell our best westie. We love this vehicle and have put a lot of TLC into it. We were planning to drive it from Seattle to Patagonia. But then cancer got in the way, and we have decided its time to find our Best Westie a new home. We have owned it for more than 20 years, and purchased it from our friends who were the second owners.

    Total miles 258,000 about 50,000 on the rebuilt motor. Below is a list of upgrades and replacements we have made (we may be forgetting some):

    Replaced engine with GoWesty 2300 cc
    Upgraded transmission to 5 speed (added low, low and a high four)
    Upgraded exhaust system (stainless steel)
    New seals, pistons, rings, clutch
    Replaced steering rack and pump
    Entire cooling system replaced with stainless (tubing)
    Upgraded headlights
    New pop top fabric
    Interior is in great shape (zero rips or tears in original upholstery)
    Curtains included (original in good shape)
    Extra set of wheels/tires

    The coolest things about this car that you won’t find elsewhere:
    Has a “Truckfridge” that works on and off grid. It even makes ice cubes!
    Can run off-grind (lights and fridge) for 4 days with auxillary deep cycle battery system
