1986 VW Syncro Tin Top -$ 45k in restorations Price: $20000
I always wanted a Syncro and this one popped up in my state. I was the first to put an offer in. By the time I got there to finish the paperwork, the dealership had 18 people on hold with three willing to fly in from out of state.
I also own a 1982 Westy camper as well which is almost restored. We moved into a new house and we are running out of space. I've gotten the orders that one has to go so I'm going to keep the 1982 Westy and let the Syncro go. Happy wife, happy life...
I literally bought it, it passed Delaware inspection perfect (two years on the tag), I had all the fluids changed and parked it in my garage.
Here is what I can tell you.
The previous owner bought it from Washington State. He put $45,000.00 into restoring it. I have the receipts and I know the mechanic (only one VW Westy specialist in Delaware). He verified the restorations.
Here is what I can tell you as a layman then I'll give you the list that was given to me:
- It's been repainted VW Blue (looks white to me).
- New decals.
- Starts, drives and runs great. No issues that I can detect.
- Undercarriage looks awesome and clean.
- Has a Westy sink and stove that works.
- Everything is clean.
- Engine is new.
I found a list of repairs/restorations from the previous owner which I'll list now:
New upgraded rebuilt motor with only 1300 miles on it
Fresh paint and body work - Volkswagen blue - Some small imperfections
New bluetooth head unit radio with 6 speakers and new speaker box in the rear
New faux leather rear seats and bed attachment
New Front seats - Fold Flat
Acacia hardwood floors - easy to clean
New rear view mirrors
LED marker lights
All new stainless cooling system
Gauge cluster - RPM not working
New Syncro Coolant Hose kit
New Radiator Pressurized Reservoir
Syncro Coolant Pipe Kit Lower Center
Cooling Duct Fan Switch
Thermostat - 80 degree (lower than stock) temp
Push Rod Tube Protective Covers
Pump Pipe to Thermostat Housing Hose
A lot more associated parts
