1989 Restored Syncro   Price: 39000
One of a couple syncros I have for sale. Need to thin the herd. This is an awesome van ready for an expedition to tierra del fuego or anywhere in between.

Does the sink and stove work?
Yes, they both work. Need to be connected to new fuel tank and water jerry can.

Can you sleep up top?
Yes, we built the top for either storage or use as a bed (it has a pull out extension piece)

What doesn't work?
The AC doesn't work. The westy unit works but isn't plugged in.

Is it CA smog compliant?
Yes, I will personally go to AAA and title it with you. Or your money back.

Do you accept trades?
NO. Unless you have a nice airstream.

Additional information: I have $20,000+ in receipts for parts and services for the vehicle performed in the last six months. I can also provide extensive photos of the van before and during the restoration. I sold a similar Syncro six months ago, and would be happy to put you in touch with the new owner as a reference. The vehicle has South Dakota plates (friendliest state regardless of your residence). It can be registered in California; yes, even with the aaz.
