This should get a few good guffaws..

$1500 for an '81 AC van, nothing special. Oh, no pictures and no title... I'll be right over!!!

I'd give $350 tops

This psycho has chopped a hole in the driver's rear quarter to "install an air conditioner"!! I guess that is why it is listed for $18K ??? Otherwise, maybe the seller was thinking the value of sitting next to a Rialta and a Thing would boost the baseline price to "insane deal!"

Reality check? CAN this be an '88 ????

https://fargo.craigslist.org/cto/d/1988-volkswagen-vanagon/6339774610.html

Looks awful strange for a late model, I can't decide if someone is just not knowing what they are supposed to look like, or what...(me mostly) Maybe its just the single round headlight grill that is playing with my mind.

$9450

Not an 88. Could be 82, more likely 83. Possibly a diesel.

$900 for a used Square Headlight grill and lights? 😱 Even in Canadian funds that is ridiculous. For that price you could have a new complete South African grill set up.

I have the 4 square headlight assembly and grill from my 1988 VW Vanagon for sale. Will fit on all Vanagons.. Stock for 1986-1992 years).
Passenger side is in perfect condition, The drivers side inner light (high beam) has one small rock ship. I also have a spare for that light with one small crack on it but all in working order. Will need a few mounting adjusters, still available at about $12 a piece.

These are no longer available. Will only sell as a complete package

Real original syncro 16 or not:

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2105525

Advertised as a syncro 16 but those wheelarches seems more like the Terrawagen ones. And the front arches are also attached to the fenders, instead of to the doors like a real 16 inch syncro.

Rear trailing arms looks like 14 inch items as well:

It is nice when they have added upgrades like this new 3 window canvas.
Wait, I have to go outside and use a ladder to open or close the tent windows?

Don't be nit-picky. The original paint is likely right there under the blue just as the seller stated, "with original paint".

Besides the paint issue of the van itself, the professional educator in me just can't overlook the ridiculous run-on
sentence that this (and many other) supposed native English speakers put out there. Pet peeve, I s'pose... <shrug>

If this is real... $1500 for a project. Maybe a good plan for someone near by.

Craigslist needs to allow higher res photos and people need to stop using potatoes for cameras
That kitchen rust is brutal and needs to be cut out and a new panel welded in.
Might just be from a leaky hose though and if the rest is solid you might have a real gem .
Price cannot be argued with in any case

I Can't decide if this should go here or in the "Wall of Shame" thread.

https://www.kijiji.ca/v-rv-motorhome/nelson/1990-w...nFlag=true

something was bugging me about it (other than it being black), then I noticed the distinct lack of seams. Does no seams mean no seam rust? Confused Think
