Vintage 1982 Camper with 1.9L Turbo Diesel Conversion - New AAZ Engine getting 27 mpg on highway!
The original conversion was done by Justin @ Greaseworks in Corvallis Oregon and further work was done by Jerry in Eugene who is a VW genius known in this area for his expert work.
Body is clean and straight. You'll see when you look underneath & close the doors this van has a solid body and with the new 1.9 TD it's got great power and fuel economy with a pop top Camper Bus. Town & Country straight popup design.
Engine is still being broken in (about 500 miles on new engine). After doing all the engine conversion work my next step was going to be the custom muffler which these require because of the location of the turbo. Since I'm forced to sell it due to other financial obligations I decided not to spend the $1000+ on the custom muffler because our local muffler shop only warranty's the buyer not the vehicle so it is loud but runs great the way Jerry set it up.
Lots of recent work:
Glow Plug Relay
Lots of New Wiring & Electrical Work
New Accelerator Cable
New Coolant Fan & Rewired
Coolant Overflow Hose
New Rear Bumper
New Air Intake System
Brake Booster Vacuum Tube
Oil Pan Gaskets
Plus a bunch of other smaller stuff
The interior still needs restoration but is clean. Paint is original so nothing is hiding. I wish I could finish this restoration but it's time for this one to have a new home. Please local purchase only not interested in blind sales.
