(PENDING) 1986 Vanagon Syncro Westfalia 1.8T A/C   Price: $65,000
Regretfully selling my beautiful Syncro. It's a sad day but our family is now expanding and we are moving to a larger truck camper.

The good news is that somebody will be the owner of a much loved and absolutely loaded Westy. Bottom-line, the van is in unbelievable condition and has been designed with maximum reliability in mind. If you're looking to explore the US (or world) in a compact, go-anywhere package, look no further.

Priced to move! Don't miss out. PM me with questions.
