1985 Custom Syncro Vanagon - 2.5L Subaru Engine - $39,000 or best offer

Incredibly mechanically sound Syncro with about 15,000 miles on its new Subaru engine. No problem at all with emissions in Colorado (willing to provide a passing Colorado emission test before sale). Can go anywhere with this thing. Definitely fun to hear people comment on the van.

This is a "two knob" Syncro with decoupler (can go 2wd or 4wd) and rear locking differential.
