1985 Vanagon Westfalia ONLY 16,784 Miles!!!   Price: 25000
Available for sale, a 1985 Vanagon Westfalia full camper with only 16,784 miles.
All records are included, and these miles are 100% original and verifiable.

This vehicle was purchased by the original owner (I am the second owner) New in 1985, driven on only three trips to and from Florida, and parked indoors in an air conditioned basement never to move again in 1994.
Between 1990-1994, very few miles were put on the vehicle, it has never been used for any city driving- exclusively used for trips to and from Florida.

The vehicle has not been exposed to the effects of modern acid rain, seen any UV from the sun, or exposed to wear in 24 years. The overall originality and condition of the vehicle is best displayed in the fact that the tires are ORIGINAL, and in good condition.

This vehicle is being offered "As Is" in it's current "Barn Find" State.
If the vehicle does not sell as is, it will be meticulously gone through over the course of the winter, and will be offered as a highly reliable, road trip ready vehicle at a far higher price.
We have managed to get the vehicle to run and drive- it fires right up and idles PERFECTLY, with absolutely no lifter knock. As far as we know, all the parts are original other then one front brake hose and a clutch slave cylinder, both of which we replaced to get the vehicle to its current condition (Capable of driving in and out of the garage, onto a trailer, etc).
The vehicle has not been washed or detailed.

Absolutely no signs of mouse damage have ever been seen or smelled.

This is the closest thing to a BRAND NEW 1985 Westfalia on the market today, and while it will certainly need to be gone through and maintained to be a road trip ready vehicle (Replacing Rubber components, Steel Coolant Lines, Etc)- this vehicle is a shockingly original specimen and at this point, a one in a lifetime opportunity.

As we go through and continue to document, photograph, and fix up this vehicle- the price will change accordingly.
I have been a long time member of the vanagon community, and in the 100+ Van's I've worked on- I have never seen anything this original.
