This is likely the best deal I’ve ever seen in sub $5,000 Westfalias, as usually at this price they’ll come with heaps of rust, everything is broken, bad compression, grinding gears, etc. However, this one I found on Craigslist appears to be in decent shape and working order. Available in Ballard, WA for $4,500, this is the first year of the water cooled Vanagon (1983.5) and had a new or rebuilt motor(stock 1.9L) put in back in 2001. The seller claims that in the past 13 years of ownership, they’ve invested over $12,000 in this van including clutch, gas shocks, struts, radiator, computer, front and rear brakes, battery, alternator and it even comes with a bike rack. Oh yes, it’s a manual too.
