1982 Diesel Westy for sale - excellent condition!   Price: 25000
Iím selling my beautiful and loyal 1982 Diesel Westfalia. It's been a wonderful and trustworthy vehicle for me and Iím sad to see it go. As well as having been daily driver for me for the past 3 years, I have also driven it down the coast to California and back twice. The van is in excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. Sheís all healthy, ready to go and take you anywhere youíd like!

Here is a breakdown of what its like:

-upgraded 1.9L Naturally Aspirated Diesel engine (as opposed to the 1.6L stock) with only ~ 33,000 miles on it. You can drive 65mph with this engine. Iíve been getting somewhere around 24-26 mpg on fuel consumption. Iíve been told these engines (ď1YĒ) are commonly converted to turbo-diesels if thatís something youíre looking at.
-Brand new silicone engine coolant hoses
-Strict maintenance regime followed on fluid changes
-New timing belt

Other Mechanical:
-new tires
-new clutch
-transmission (manual) rebuilt recently to match larger engine RPMs
-brake system rebuilt 8,500 miles ago
-no rust
-Good electric system

-new paintjob
-canvas pop-top in good condition
-solar panel powered battery charging system w. extra house battery and inverter
-new drinking water pump/faucet
-upgraded speaker and stereo system
-interior upholstery in good condition

The problems:
-No actual issues yet, but some of the suspension system will probably need to be worked on in the future
-Heater works great, but smells a bit of coolant. Iíve looked many times for leaks and canít find any, so it must be very small - certainly too small to see any loss of coolant
-Tachometer doesnít work, but I have a fly-wheel attachment unit that I havenít gotten around to installing yet.
-Odometer is not the original, but works fine.
