1980 Vanagon Westfalia   Price: $8000
1980 VW Vanagon, Westfalia. Aircooled, 2L engine. Originally a California model. The camper has lived in Arizona before brought to NJ by previous owner, who restored it. The camper has not been on Northeast winter roads.Chassis in great condition. Part of the “restoration” by previous owner was getting rid of the fuel injection system. That was a mistake, so we had a EFI system (from federal model) re-installed by experienced classic VW mechanic. Odometer works, but no idea about actual mileage, nor amount of miles on rebuild engine. At the time of putting the EFI back on, the cylinder compression was really good (~140 psi). New distributor with vacuum line. Needs a few 1000 more miles to be broken in. Overall engine is in very good shape. All cooling tin in place, but thermostat is missing. Can be hooked up: flaps are there, held open by the spring. There is an extra external oil cooler installed, with the heat exchanger placed in the left rear wheel well. Extra gauges on dash: oil temp, pressure, and head temp. There is a starter relay in place as well. Manual transmission never caused any problems.
Interior and upholstering is in very good shape, and cushions are very firm. Some mice damage on mosquito net of roof tent.
Fridge, cooker, sink in place but no idea how functional they are.
Recently installed new brakes and wheel bearings, fluids changed.
Original size wheel, with proper Yokohama tires.

The bad: some rust on sliding door corner. Exhaust pipe and muffler are rusted and should be replaced. Sliding door doesn't "pop out" when opening.

Mileage: no idea, odometer reads 13,800

Camper needs to go, because it is not being used and moved to a new house where the garage is too low to store it inside.

Asking $8,000, OBO. (does NOT include bike rack, that is sold already)
