1987 Vanagon Westfalia <PRICE DROP AUG19>   Price: 16,700
This is one of the most desirable campers produced by Volkswagen- a late model gray interior Vanagon Westfalia! With all the charm and vibes of the earlier models, but the drive ability, safety, and conveniences of a modern vehicle.

This water cooled, rear-engined Vanagon is powered by a 90hp “waterboxer” engine through a 2wd 4 speed manual transmission. This 2.1 liter engine makes plenty of horsepower with a new distributor and fresh tune-up.
It runs easily at highway speeds, cruises comfortably and rips around turns thanks to a performance T3 techniques sway bar and Weitec lowering springs. Power steering, cruise control (not hooked up), swivel front seats, adjustable arm rests (highly desirable), power mirrors, and factory AC (currently not hooked up). NOT A SYNCRO (NOT 4WD)- but the stickers sure do draw attention!

Fresh brakes all around including a new master cylinder, new rear slave cylinders, rebuilt front calipers and new rotors/wheel bearings. Clutch master and slave cylinder has been replaced, along with a fresh LUK clutch kit (disk, pressure plate, throw out bearing) 2,000 miles ago. The gas tank has been out and all the seals, crossover tube, and fuel lines replaced throughout the vehicle along with a fresh Bosch fuel pump and filter. The entire camping interior has been removed for thorough rust prevention and spray in sound deadener (Second Skin Spectrum), All cabinets have been thoroughly cleaned and are in perfect functional condition, along with the rear bed and top bed. A fresh Go Westy tent was installed last year along with all new pop top seals. Rocky Mountain Westy rear bumper and hitch along with custom reverse lights, 8’ roll out awning, and additional 12v/usb ports wired in throughout the vehicle- ready for your choice of auxiliary battery setups.
Go Westy fridge delete kit installed, it’s just a way better place to store things- we prefer a cooler or ARB style fridge anyways, the stock fridge sucked.

This bus has come a long way since being pulled out of a field and brought back to life throughout our YouTube series- and it’s been on many great adventures. Enthusiast owned by an experienced Vanagon nut with multiple busses- this bus, “Wanda” is ready to move on to the next home to make room for an impending child.
It’s a sorted bus, ready for the next mechanic to truly make it their own and continue on its life of adventures. Complete with a Rare South African grill and headlight setup- it looks sharp and illuminates the path ahead of you, allowing you to see the future.

The exhaust could use some freshening up, it’s due for tires, and the body work is best suited for care free adventures instead of winning car shows- but it draws a crowd and makes it to its destination every time!
