1986 Vanagon 2.2L Westfalia (The Wolf) NEW ENGINE   Price: 28,500
BRAND NEW GoWesty 2.2L motor December 2018. The NEW ENGINE comes with the GoWesty Road Warrior Engine Warranty where GoWesty will pay 100% of outside labor rate (limited to $115/hour) and will provide replacements for failed parts at no charge for the duration of the warranty, four (4) years or forty-eight thousand (48,000) miles, whichever comes first, from date of purchase.


Up for consideration is my beloved Vanagon (The Wolf)

I have cared for and journeyed with the The Wolf for almost 8 years now, it is a very reliable daily driver that is originally a California van.

A 1986 Volkswagon Vanagon Wolfsburg with a 1983 Westfalia interior it has a solar powered dual battery set up with a designated starting battery and an auxiliary battery, an 1800w Power Bright Inverter and an Engel Freezer/Fridge amidst a working Westfalia propane stove.

A lot of money has been invested into into this very sold Vanagon. It's a very solid Stealth Camper and a great candidate for a NAHT High Top.

In addition to the new engine there is a completely rebuilt 4 Speed Manual Transaxle from Matt Steedle Transmissions that has about 31,000 miles on it.

Some other notable parts replaced and upgraded include.

Comes with its own Bentley Manual and some hard to find spare parts.

I have long spreadsheets listing maintenance, the dates of parts purchased and installed and an enormous stack or receipt with lots of documentation covering pretty much everything done with the Wolf over the last 8 years.

I keep this Vanagon in tip top shape mechanically speaking because I like it to be ready to head across the country in a moments notice.

You can see many more pictures of this Vanagon and its travel's on my instagram page @cjvango.

If you are seriously considering #Vanlife and want to get started with a mechanically sound vehicle this is a very good Vanagon to consider. It may be the best "Stealth Camper" on the Samba because it's a lightweight tin top with a Westfalia interior, and being a tin top no one expects anyone to be sleeping in it, so feel free to sleep in any Hilton parking lot and head inside for the continental breakfast when you wake up.

It's also a great candidate for a NAHT hightop which run around $3600 plus install. Something I am considering adding to it myself.

Please send a message and arrange for a quick conversation. We can cover much more that way going back and forth in text or email is laborious and I am just as eager to find out if you are a suitable owner for the Wolf as you are to find out if the Wolf is suitable for your upcoming adventure.

I am still investing into this Vanagon, improving upon it, and with summer quickly approaching I've been getting as much attended to on it as possible.

If you are reading this Ad the Wolf is still for sale. I will take the ad down the moment itís sold.
