  9. 1981 Vanagon Westfalia Garage find.

    Craigslist link below

    Van has been sitting for 10 years or so in a garage.
    It took 4 new tires (old ones would not hold air)
    New Battery
    Fuel Pump
    Clutch Slave cylinder
    Flush tank and fuel lines.
    Plugs, cap and oil change.
    To bring it back to life again– it starts right up and runs However, I would not do any real heavy duty driving until you spend some time checking every thing out and doing some overall mechanical work/light restoration. My mechanic said it needs exhaust work. Original paint and it is generally an honest unmolested and very original example.
    Has some rust on the driver side but the underside is clean and solid in my opinion
    Interior is in great shape
    I have the engine cover and cushion and a few other pieces all original interior.
    Muffler is loud, needs to be replaced and drivers door will not latch, pop up canvas has a big hole, and I cant guarantee any of the lights & gauges are working properly. Last mechanic said it need exhaust work LOW MILES odometer reads 88,000 can’t guarantee that however. For more info call (773) 592-7755 CLEAN TITLE ON HAND

    1984 Mercedes Benz Westfalia camper for sale or possible trade. Purchased in Seattle about 4 years ago. Clear California title. Bay Area DMV registration is paid through early January 2019. Currently in beautiful Point Richmond quite near the Brickyard Cove sailing community. Not a pop-top. Sleeps 2 adults in current configuration. Both the fiberglass top and cabin sides/doors are well insulated throughout. Google 1984 Mercedes Westfalia for full specs. Only 17 feet long and 7 feet wide, yet has ample room for lounging and lunching at the swiveling Westfalia dining table. Fantastic turning radius and excellent color night vision backup camera allow ease of parking and maneuvering. 5 cylinder OM 617 Mercedes Benz (non-turbo) 3 liter diesel engine with 5 speed manual transmission with 170,000 miles (270,000 kilometers). Runs great. Starts easily. No leaks. Valve adjustment done professionally 1 year ago (about 2500 miles). 2 small trickle charge solar panels keep engine and house batteries charged. Full standing headroom of about 7 feet in the main cabin gives this Westy a very roomy feel. Fully enclosed shower with slide-out portable toilet offers 6 foot standing headroom. Opening Fiamma roof hatches (1 large & 1 small) provide good ventilation … along with two flip up windows (1 large on left side and one small in rear door). Privacy shades and curtains throughout. Snap on cockpit privacy/sun curtain covers all windows forward of the main cabin. (In some 1980s versions, a kids bed frame and small mattress pad could be fitted sideways across the two front seats while camping … not sure what it looks like) A small kids futon can easily be used atop the folding upper folding bunk (above the cockpit). Sliding privacy curtains hang between cockpit and main cabin. Insect screens mostly do some good on hatches and large left side flip up window. Front driver and passenger seats recline and both have twin folding adjustable lightly padded armrests.

    Many photos are available upon request. Tire kickers please do your homework online or other research elsewhere. This is known as the Mercedes Benz Westfalia 309D motorhome (likely class B) and comes with a pretty full complement of manuals … all in the original German. This particular chassis (aka T1 and TN) … production run lasted about 6 or 7 years until almost a million of these were built and then superseded by the Sprinter chassis (among others). Don’t confuse this model with the O309 bus … which is a completely different vehicle. Hundreds of photos of other 309D Westfalia campers are available online and in old brochures. Many videos are available online as well. (Note the 207D is very similar but has a smaller less powerful engine I believe)

    Will consider trade for Tesla or late model all wheel drive 4 door sedan (2012 or preferably newer) in good condition. Note that I currently have a lightly used queen sized RV coil spring mattress in the main cabin laid across both the long settee (left side) and across the folding seats on the right side … for more even and comfortable sleeping (and which has a zip-on washable queen mattress cover). This mattress precludes walking in the forward area of the cabin but still allows access to the galley, hanging locker and enclosed shower through the rear door. I also have a big (currently unmounted) luggage rack and a large custom lockable “diamond plate truck box” that fits precisely in the volume allowed by the luggage rack. A folding bicycle rack is custom fabricated to bolt on the rear door and holds two adult bicycles … but interferes somewhat with the use of the rear ladder and access to the truck box. A full lightweight vehicle suncover with shock cord closure at each corner is included and is marked with “Front” and “Rear” sewn in labels for ease of use.

  17. Odometer: 249,162 (Only 25,000mi on rebuild)
    Clean Title
    Watercooled T3, 1.9L Gasoline, Automatic Transmission
    Ivory Beige with Blue, brown, tan striped upholstery

    Second Owner since 1990! Kept maintained regularly and very clean. All original upholstery, carpet, curtains, tables, and accessories. Updated poptop tent and headliner. Starts and runs beautifully like a purring kitten. If you are interested in a campervan that is ready to go hit the road, here it is. You can customize it the way you want or start restoring to original condition. This one has great bones and very healthy for being 33 years old. She drives great even in 100 degree heat with no over heating issues. For the past year, I’ve been using her as a commuter a few days a week. The stove, sink, shore power all work. Upgraded tires to 14″ General Grabber AT, practically brand new. Newly installed Kenwood removable face stereo with CD/ USB port and 4 6″ Alpine Speakers in the front doors and two in the rear. Recently restored the paint with custom 4 step detail. There are minor cosmetic issues like: dent on slider door, dings, minor rust on scratches, front driver seat obviously needs some love, small hole in rear of tent from some past mildew damage, fridge doesn’t work (like most), a few window seals are starting to crack, could probably use a new propane tank… oh and the speedometer is off about 10-12 mph. If you’d like a full history or want more details, please contact Alicia or Darin.

    All regular maintenance performed at Halsey Automotive since 2008 (have most repair and maintenance records) and prior maintenance performed at various other VW specialty shops outside of Oregon. There may be more records, but below are all the receipts I found, Halsey has all records on file.

  18. Our VW Westfalia Vanagon’s name is the “Jerry Van” We bought it from Jerry, so hence the name. It’s a painted a beautiful silver color. It has a new dark grey pop-up tent. It is clean and in excellent condition. We just had the engine tuned up and its ready to go on new adventures with a new VW Westfalia Vanagon camping loving family. We are asking $23,000

  19. Strong running Westy Second owner. 32 years with no smokers or pets. Looks and drives 100 percent. Driven an average 200 miles per day during fair weather months for last four years. Wintered under cover in Louisiana. Has never been exposed to a salt state winter road.
    All the heavy, and expensive, work has been done for you.
    Steering rack and front end overhaul. No loose wandering steering. Runs straight and true, 70 mph no shakes wobles
    Half-shafts and rear wheel bearings.
    GoWesty’s best, heavy canvas with 3 screened windows, four years old.
    GoWesty acrylic skylight cover. No leaks.
    GoWesty hatch-lift struts.
    Has had engine replaced, but I do not know at what mileage. I bought her at 164000 miles and this engine was installed some time before that. I checked compression 3 years running … 150 psi plus or minus 2. Oil consumption is less than a quart in 3500 miles, my change interval.
    Interior is in excellent, mostly original condition with no tears or stains. I had the drivers seat rebuilt and upholstered with over-the-road truck quality material to match the original. Even so I always keep the seats covered.
    Hankook 6-ply, 8-ply rating tires have probably 10,000 miles left. In my (maybe not so humble) opinion these are the best performing tires to run on standard VW wheels. I have had no problems with them.
    Has separate coach batteries and camper lights & equipment will not drain main battery.
    AC blows cold. But be warned, the best Westfalia AC is not over powering…plus its noisy.
    Downsides: Radio is junk and dash is sun cracked as most are on units this old some bumper pitting.
    Any thing else, I’ll be glad to tell you.

    Selling my 1984 VW Vanagon Westafalia. 1984 Vanagon Westfalia for sale. The good: No rust issues; Popup in fair/good condition; Interior and headliner fair/good shape. The bad: Not currently running; has ding if front left that requires a hard slam to close driver’s door; cracked windshield; Missing stove/sink cabinet; missing battery. This would make a great project to fix or Subaru upgrade. Was told that the only engine issue is the starter but can’t know for sure.

  22. I have a good 1969 Westfalia Camper , new engine, running, and looking to sell, for the right price. Located in South Carolina.

  23. 1987 One family owned Westfalia Camper. All original. I’ve had this in the family since my parents purchased it new. I’ve kept this van clean and well-cared for over the years but now it needs someone with some time to keep her in good repair. Having some issues with the idle and battery drainage. Make an offer.

  24. Curious to hear your thoughts on this vehicle’s condition and value compared with others on the market over time.


    Nice 87 Westy full camper for sale in Austin, TX. extras included. Auction: bids start at $18500. Auction closes Sept. 18, 2017.

  26. The Westy was in storage for many years while we were overseas. It has 140,000 miles on it, although the current engine (a 2.0 liter Jetta model) has 41,000 miles thus far. No rust. The van is stored each winter and driven in summer for camping adventures. Many upgrades and improvements: thorough undercoating; lift kit; larger 16″ rims; new gas tank in 2016; new propane system in 2014; dc to ac converter; installed battery charger; auxiliary battery; high powered headlights; LED lamps throughout; solar panel charger ready; Bosch shocks and front end stabilizers; new water pump and plumbing for sink… (and more). New lift top assist struts and hemp tent installed in 2016. She is road ready with cargo box and kayak rack, stove, and sink. Original refrigeration unit removed in 2014 for more storage. We use a portable ASC DC-powered fridge for outings. New, remote controlled radio/CD/USB-ready audio system installed in 2012. Velcro cover over dash since purchase has kept dashboard in new condition. We are the second owners. We purchased the vehicle in 1991. Back then the camper had only 12,000 miles. Now, our growing family is too large for the camper. If you are already a Westy owner, you know about the Westy tribal rituals – something about roaming in one of these vans creates camaraderie among fellow travelers. If you are new to a Westy, you are about to find out about Westy World. Price: $32,000. See more at:

  27. 1989 VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper, 140K miles. SWEET CAMPER VAN! Original exterior, interior, and engine. It is heartbreaking for us to give up our beloved camper, but after 18 years of fabulous memories we’ve decided we really need something a little bit bigger. The van has been lovingly maintained and enjoyed by us for the past 18 years. New within the past couple of years are the entire exhaust system, front brake pads, clutch, bra to protect front (we’ve always used one), belts, and tires (less than 5000 miles on tires). Lots of upgrades including 3-window canvas tent in pop-top (some cosmetic discoloration in places but very sound – see photos), screens all around (including zipping screen for sliding side door), removable Yakima roof racks, custom cover for when not in use (see photo), extra 12-volt power ports, earphone jack, driving lights, fan installed in original Dometic 3-way fridge (which works great), upgraded on-off switch on water pump for sink. Includes original owner’s manuals, Bentley shop manual, miscellaneous spare parts (belts, accelerator cable, distributor cap, plugs, etc.) The van shows minor normal wear and tear (see photos) but is basically in great shape. Although in Vermont, we’ve never driven it in the winter and have always bundled it up well in winter months to protect it from the elements, so body is sound (a little rust on bottom of rear lift-gate that we discovered and treated, which put a stop to it – see photos). Clean title (carfax report available). The only known problems are as follows: (1) the AC hasn’t worked for several years. (2) When the gas tank was reinstalled at one point many many years ago one of the compression fittings didn’t get properly seated or something, so if you fill the tank all the way to 13 gallons it will leak a little gas from the top of the tank. We just always fill it to 12 gallons or less and it’s not a problem. This could be fixed by someone with a lift, we just haven’t bothered. (3) The water level gauge on the fresh-water tank is unreliable. Cash or wire transfer only, local pickup or arrangements for shipping are buyer’s responsibility. See it on Craigslist here:

    I have posted my Syncro Westy on the Samba site. It is a 61K- miler, one owner (before me) that lived its life in the shade in CA. The paint is perfect, 100% rust-free the body is perfect and the interior is perfect, as well. I put a Subuaru 2.5 in it ( by a local guy here) and also had the transmission rebuilt. The front diff also got a new ring and pinion, as well as a new viscous coupling. Everything mechanical has been brought up to “new” specification, and the interior has been detailed out by me. It seems all I did was work on it! There is too much to list here – see the Samba ad:

It has lived its whole life in the shade. 62K miles, perfect original paint, perfect interior, 1500 miles on Subaru 2.5 swap (I had this done locally), front diff rebuilt with new viscous coupling, all mechanical systems worked over to perfection by myself. All I did was work on the Van! I am losing money at the posted price – my loss may be your gain! See here:

    Selling our 1985 Volkswagen Westfalia Vanagon GL full camper. It is finished in tan on brown. Body has 196,371 miles but the 1.9L engine was rebuilt 15k miles ago, have receipt. It also had a new clutch at the time of engine rebuild, and a new starter in 2016. Manual transmission.

    We just put on a brand new pop-top tent (three window variety) that has better air flow, leak free pop top!

    It runs, drives and shifts good. The body is fantastic…new paint and bodywork in 2015, absolutely no rust on this van! The interior is clean and smoke free. All the camping equipment is present and accounted for…everything works as it should. All curtains and screens present and accounted for.

    Clean title in hand!

    I bought the van from California a while back with the intention of fixing it up a bit and travelling around the country in it with my girlfriend and dogs, and as it turns out she hates the van…heartbreaking! She wants something newer and fancier, go figure. I really want to keep it but just can’t justify it. Here is your chance to snatch up a super nice Westy!

    $15,000 cash…SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY!!!

    I am selling my 1983 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia.
    1.9L Automatic. 187,033mi
    $11,500 OBO- I would like to sell by the end of the month. Offers welcome
    No trades, first with cash in hand drives it away. Van is located in San Francisco, Glen Park Neighborhood. About 10 min walk form the Glen Park Bart Station
    I can show it 6-9pm on most weekdays and on the weekend. Email to check it out

    The Van and I have had a good run. I have had the van for the past 5 years. Over the years I have had an amazing time traveling around, camping, and taking in the sights. Alas I have no more time or space to utilize the brilliant machine. Van starts, runs, and drives great. Clean title and current registration. I have put in a list of repairs over the years, i can provide a list in asked. Feel like it is in decent mechanical shape. It’s not perfect, take it to a shop and they will say it needs shocks and a couple of parts to make it perfect. This is a great van that you can jump in and jam out for the weekend, week, or month and not break the bank. The body is a cool lime green. The camper set up is in good shape. The original 3 gallon propane tank works and can be filled up at most propane filing stations. The stove and the fridge run on the propane. Fridge can also run on 12v and 110v. The water tank, pump and sink work. The Camper pop top is intact but in poor shape, some small rips and the window zipper is broken. The AC was disconnected at the engine before I got it, doubt it works. The stereo has been upgraded, and it slams! Now has an aux jack to play whatever you like form your phone. Van also comes with all the factory curtains and a rear camper screen.

    Bonus: Included with the van are 4 owners manuals, factory, Haynes, and owners

      • Very nice, good luck! IMO, more pictures, more records, pay for VIN check to show buyers the mileage / title history, more info on stereo, wheels, other upgrades. I think if you do all of this, you might get mid to high $40s for it. If you can find a nice slider door and have it painted for say $1,500, it might add $4k+ to the final buying price.

    Selling our 1982 Westy Vanagon diesel- runs great, and we had our VW mechanic fix everything he could think of to fix, but I think my husband threw out the ticket…grr. We bought it as a prepper vehicle to drive to South America but the laws in Ecuador prevent people from registering cars over 10 years old, so we have to sell it so it doesn’t sit here and die. Wasn’t sure how to price it. It is mechanically sound and clean, but there is some rust and fading, and the furniture is stripped out. To me the diesel 0-60mph in two days thing is not an issue and actually I have no need to speed. Really, we bought it for the cool old German old school engineering and the possibility to switch to veg oil. Not to mention the what-if there’s an EMP and all the speedy modern cars won’t start… We have a little over $4000 into it so I’m asking $4500. What do you think. Here’s the listing.

    Letting go of my restored 1985 VW Westfalia Weekender.

    Just dropped the price to $16.5K. This is a nice, nice, well running, EXTREMELY clean van (as an example – dropped the dash, basically polished the sheet metal, washed the vent hoses with Simple Clean, cracked open, cleaned, and rebuilt the blower box w resistor relocation).

    Mike – I’d be happy to provide more pics of the rebuilt bits (new fuel tank, springs/suspension, relocated blower resistor, red LED dash lights, custom rear LED lighting, custom curtains and mattress) if you’re interested in a write up.

    Thanks for looking! And best of luck to every one else selling or buying!


    • Nice Tom! Sorry to see you have to sell it. Do you have California title and Kennedy sticker on it? I know the 2.5 can sometimes pass here, depending. If I have time this week I’ll give it a write up.

    Happy answer any questions.

  82. 1986 Westfalia Wolfsburg Full camper /”Goldfinger” 76,000 original miles. Sonoma County, Ca. New paint, 16″ GoWesty Alloy wheels and tires, inverter, 3M protective front film, lift assist, custom sheep skins seat covers, tinted windows, blue tooth, etc.. A real head turner. 20K or OBO.

    • Nice looking Westy Tom! I’d suggest seeing what the eBay market would bring, even if you set a very high reserve price, you’ll know what others are willing to pay for it when the auction ends.

  83. Want a westy so bad it hurts, but fixing my financials so I can afford one without eating ramen for the rest of my life.

    In the meantime I search daily for the best Westies around, this site obviously being a hub for all of that looking and cannot thank our benefactor enough for this site.

    To that end I discovered a westy locally that a guy is selling, found it on TheSamba, and though he has all but naught on his ad (sadly) I went and looked at the rig, top/bottom/inside and out… This thing is in amazing condition, no rust to speak of… anywhere. Aftermarket bumpers, new grey 3-window GW poptop tent. New GW hookup boxes and equipment (From what I could tell.) The LP tank is in perfect condition, and honestly looks brand new. It’s got the black VW emblem on the front.

    OH! and the one thing the ad does mention is the 88k on its engine.

    At any rate, I only wish I could afford to get a loan for anywhere near what he’s asking for it, but as I cannot my policy so far has been to spread the love on westy finds so when it comes time to be able to buy my own I find some good karma in it.

    Here’s the ad:

    • oh yeah… forgot to mention when I spoke to him on the phone he mentioned he’d put 17″ wheels on it and a lift kit.

      And I can confirm both those things, it’s pretty great looking.
