Westfalia 1.8T powered Syncro with 3 knob lockers   Price: 42500
OK .....I admit I have too many cars & too little time. Your chance to STEAL my Syncro Westy! The van was bought by me in 2014 and was a partial cause of my 2018 divorce from my wife of 26 years. I devoted all my spare time to the build of this Real 1989 Westfalia. The recipe: Take one 92,000 mile Westfalia camper van with a flambé water boxer motor. Remove motor & transmission sell them. Have German Motorwekes in Monterey California swap in the Syncro 4x4 front assembly. Find a Like NEW (under 500 miles) 2004 AWP Turbo motor....order a SAH conversion kit....Find that the early SAH 1.8T conversion kit would not work with my Burley Motorsports Syncro16 trailing arms (now the BMS builds the brackets for SAH this is no longer a problem) Fabricate new engine mounts, Have Paul Guard (GT Transaxel or Gears on the Samba) rebuild the “South African aluminum case” 094 Transaxel with Albins 3/4th gears, Peloquin billet steel locking limited slip differential with HD Peloquin 930 flanges and Peloquin billet side adjusters with HD flange bearings an A&A type steel plate was fitted to the transmission case to strengthen the assembly there are external lubrication ports along with the “South African” oiling plates inside this “no costs spared 094 rebuild. Rebuild front differential using HD 4 pinion locking differential rather that the 2 pinion one from VW. The drive axels all have HD German 930 CV joints and front outer CV’s are BRAND NEW German VW OEM “Syncro 16” outer drive CV’s. It is not common knowledge so, many people don’t realize that VW put Syncro 16 type CV’s in all T3 Vans with front locking differentials because of the added stress & strain on the drive system....this build spared nothing in expenses! Install a German sourced “de-coupler” with the HD needle bearing pilot. Source Syncro 16 wheel well arches for the FORGED CV 900 wheel set 16x6 (set of 5 wheels). Install Big Brake Kit on front, Burley rear disc brakes BMW brake booster, stainless braided brake hoses..fabricate custom brake cable set to make parking brake functional 100% of capacity. Install all new highclearance stainless steel cooling/heater lines. New radiator Silicon hoses. Install Go Westy raised spring set and Fox adjustable shocks. Burley Billet upper control arms. All ball joints & suspension bushings replaced with Moog parts. Fabricate new stainless steel power steering lines. New South African Grille Truck Lite 7” LED headlamps and Terra Podz lights. All lighting is LED bulbs. Syncro 1600 speedometer rebuilt and turned to 00000 miles. This van starts right up....drives excellent but there are things to be completed to be 100% “Expedition worthy”. Included in the sale is over $8000 of spare parts including a BRAND NEW “0 miles” 094 Transaxel ( that shouldn’t ever need to be utilized in keeping this van on the road! ) This Van was a Sounthern California van and I just took delivery of it from Burley Motorsports in May of 2019. My loss your gain! Price can be negotiable if you don’t want all the items that should easily bring $10,000 in resale if you make the effort. Currently registered in Washington State as “collector vehicle” the van has all emissions equipment intact and functioning for California BAR approval My number for text (208)918-0795 or message me on Email ....IT IS BEST to TEXT message me when inquiring about my Syncro Thanks Eric
