Chewie - 1985 Westfalia Vanagon with 2.2 Subaru   Price: 28,000
It is with a very heavy heart that we are selling "Chewie" who has been a part of our family for the past 8 years. The only reason we are selling it is that we have simply outgrown it as our children are now teenagers and it is getting quite tight for camping. 160,000 miles. It is a very clean 2-wd van with a manual transmission and Subaru 2.2 liter engine. It has exceptional road manners with excellent braking / steering / shifting. I would feel comfortable taking this van anywhere. (We store it in a garage all winter and it starts up immediately on the first crank in the spring.) The body was repainted just before we bought it and the paint is in excellent shape. Although I cannot say that it is completely rust-free, it is very close with only a few spots of seam rust that are hardly visible and just beginning to show. There are two very small dents in the driver's side rear corner otherwise there is no body damage. The undercarriage is exceptionally clean (see pictures). I have performed many modifications on the vehicle including:
• Subaru 2.2 liter engine (non-interference engine, block 1996, intake & computer from 1991 Legacy) with Kennedy swap kit
• Customized exhaust – sounds awesome
• Stock 4-speed manual transmission with long shifter (not shown in pictures). Shifts perfectly
• Rebuilt clutch
• Rebuilt CV Joints (German Lobro joints with Rockford boots)
• Rocky Mountain Westy stainless steel coolant tank
• Polished 15” Audi “Fuch” wheels from 1980's Quattro– very rare
• Brand new BF Goodrich KO2 All Terrain Tires (215/75/15)
• New gas tank with Bosch fuel pump
• Rebuilt front suspension with polyurethane bushings
• Oversized T3 Engineering front anti-sway bar
• Hella halogen driving lights
• Fog lamps
• Upgraded dash with full VDO gauges and LED lighting
• New carpet
• Truckfridge 12-volt fridge / freezer
• Auxiliary battery kit
• Upgraded 3-nozzle windshield washers
• New heater motor front, school bus heater in rear
• Interior LED lighting
• Trans-Awn 2000 Side Awning
• Heavy-duty rear trailer hitch (incorporated into stock bumper - not shown in pictures)
• Fan-Tastic roof vent fan
• New mosquito screens in canvas top
• Beautiful brown metallic paint – very minimal seam rust (none in floors or anywhere else)
• Van and engine are both equipped with A/C but it is not hooked up

The van was recently professionally appraised at $28,500. We are asking $28,000. If you call, please only call on weekends or between 6pm - 9pm mountain standard time during the week as I work in healthcare and am unable to answer phone calls during the daytime hours. Thanks for looking. 970-980-4252.
