1985 Westfalia Camper Fully Loaded LowMi Must Sell   Price: 17000
1985 Volkswagen Westfalia Vanagon GL, watercooled, 1.9 L

Canadian Van, in Kilometers. There is approx 160,000km/ 99,000mi on this van. Runs and drives great. Many upgrades. 4 sp Manual Transmission. No Rust issues.

Definitely could use a new paint job, but I am reluctant to get this done, as I don't really care and if I was buying it, I would rather decide what color to paint it, if I wanted to do that kind of thing... My views are, you could drive this to South America no problem... if it was freshly painted, perhaps you would have problems...

This van as an auxiliary heater that was from the factory. It puts out 38,000 BTUs when it is working. It recently stopped working in April, but I have not tried to fix it because I haven't needed it. This is a very nice feature to have and only came as an option on the Canadian Vanagons.

Has original manuals. I can also provide a PDF copy of the Bentley Manual

Selling w backup fuel filter and fuel pump. It is running fine but I have heard some cavitation in the fuel pump, doesn't sound like that all the time. Hard to spend the time to replace it since it is running fine, but I'd have these on hand for when it wants to go.

This is a great van and in the best condition that I have seen in a 1985 Westfalia, ever. Van is registered in Alaska
I have title and all import documents from my import from Canada
