1983-1/2 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia Campmobile

Reduced to $20,000 or best reasonable offer.

Well kitted adventure/ expedition vehicle

4 speed manual

This Vanagon is not a garage queen. It’s been driven daily by me for 6 years, 45 miles per day or more and nothing it would need has been neglected. (as of June 2018 it only gets driven 50 or so miles/ week to keep the fluids moving and the battery fresh)

We completed a Bostig conversion in August 2016 with a 9000 mile 2.0L Ford Zetec from a 2000 Ford Focus. Currently has an additional 28,500 miles since converting and it has been nothing short of flawless.

This van is ready for daily driving, weekend adventures or your expedition to Tierra del Fuego. I wouldn’t hesitate to drive it anywhere. It does have a couple, easily reparable, rust spots on a few of the body skins and lower seams. The underside is super clean as I’ve undercoated it with Fluid Film every year since I’ve owned it. There are a million other things I have repaired or upgraded and I have a file of receipts for everything.
Clean Title in hand, inspection good until 7/2019. Please, no tire kickers. Thanks for looking!
