Motivated seller, let's get this vans wheel in your hands!
I accept cash, but can do cryptocurrency as well.

Clean title.
Odometer: 1777**
Color: Burgundy

Pre-inspection by Valley Wagon Works in San Rafael on Thursday morning, will get a smog done afterwards. Text or email me and we can meet up there. Otherwise we can set a date, I'm available all week and weekend in San Francisco.

This van has served me well and travelled up and down the west coast with little problems (all were fixed). I'm going to be traveling abroad and don't need a car, so hopefully someone else can have some fun with it.

The rear bench seat folds out in to a full size bed. Can sleep two comfortably and three cozily.

The van comes with the middle two-seat row, it's pictured with and without.

Van Details
- 2.1L Water Cooled 4 Cylinder
- 4 speed manual transmission (please have some experience driving manual if you're going to check this van out)
- Repainted 3 years ago in stock color (done by previous owner)
- South African style front grill (done by previous owner)
- New bumpers and end caps (done by previous owner)
- K.C. high power fog lights (done by previous owner)
- Method race wheels and AT Grabber tires (good in rain and on dirt!) (done by previous owner)
- Plenty of tread left on the tires, about a year old.
- Go Westy Suspension and Bilstein Shocks. The lift on the van provides really good clearance, I've taken this on some forest service trails and had no issues. (done by previous owner)
- Custom Upholstery with carpet inserts (done by previous owner)
- New Porche 944 CV axles and joints. (These are solid and direct replacements, recommended by Peace Vans)
- Bluetooth stereo

Work I've had done:
- New Aluminum GoWesty Throttle body installed
- New GoWesty refurbished Idle Control Unit installed

- Replaced fuel hoses
- Shift rod ear repair
- Replaced radius rod bushings.
- New power steering pump and seals
- New Shift selector boot, shift lever ball, shift lever rod boot
- New Steering rack boot
- New a/c, power steering, and alternator belts

Done by PeaceVans in Seattle
- New Porche 944 CV axles and joints. (These are solid and direct replacements, recommended by Peace Vans)

The van runs well and sounds great. It has a few scrapes and dents and sometimes will make a noise or two, but that's normal for a 30 year old car. The sliding door has a small crack in it from the previous owner. There's no cruise control, but can be easily added with an after market kit. The A/C is not hooked up, though still blows and can be fixed if you want it (or completely removed if you don't need it). The fuel pump is strong, but clogged 6 months ago. I fixed it with a tap of the wrench and it has been running well with no issues since. The power steering pump has started whining in the past few days, but am looking in to it and will have that taken care of on Thursday. So, there is work to be done, but nothing major.
