1985 VW Vanagon Wolfsburg Westy 2.5 Subaru Swap   Price: 38000
I am selling my 1985 Vanagon with a Subaru EJ25 swap. Motor was installed in October of 2016 and currently has about 6K miles on it. We used the Rocky Mountain Westy conversion kit with a 2003 Subaru Legacy 2.5 that had 60K miles on it. Motor had all new seals, head gaskets, timing belt, water pump, and other related parts replaced. We also sent the transmission to North Westy for a rebuild and put a Peloquin LSD in.

Complete exterior and interior removal for paint and body work. Color is one shade darker than original.
Removed the side marker lights, rear badges, and antenna hole.
Mercedes style texture on the lower part of the rocker panels.

Everything has been replaced with new OEM parts:
Door seals, window seals, window trim, top seals, all lights, grill upper and SA lower, wiper arms, bumpers and trimming, new heater core and blower fan, all handle gaskets and mounting hardware.
