1989 Vanagon GL Westfalia Full Camper   Price: $33,240
I bought this van less than 3 weeks ago. I brought it from Utah to CA only to find that the Subaru 2.5 engine swap cannot be certified by the California Air Resources board, so I can't register the car in california (and you won't be able to either - for out of state sale only).

This is an amazing van, the previous owner put over $50 k into and it is in really good shape. I am pasting the original ad below.

I have had the car inspected by Buslab in Berkeley and I can share the report.

Original ad:

I've owned this van for the past 15 years and put about 65,000 miles on it in it's stock form, I then decided to go completely through it. Did the Subaru engine conversion about 15,000 miles ago. And have gone through the entire drive train since. One of the nicest Vanagons you'll find. I easily have 50k into this van.... Needs nothing, I'd drive it across the country (and back). A new home and job don't allow me to get out as much, time to pass it on to the next lucky traveler.

I want to get the $33k I paid for it back and maybe also the $240 inspection fee I spent at Buslab. I will forward you a full copy of the report but the summary is the van needs an initial $1400 of repairs to brakes and power steering pump.

Thanks, and happy bus-hunting.
