This Westy just popped up in Tacoma, WA for a cool $24,750. The seller is an older gentleman; it has been in his ownership for decades. I gave him a call with a number in mind.

Things to note that aren't in the ad:
1. He's not flexible with the price and is in no rush to sell.
2. The rebuilt GoWesty engine is a 2400CC.
3. The 4 speed manual transmission was rebuilt at this time as well.
4. It sits at a shop and anything that has ever needed to be replaced, was replaced that very moment.
5. He didn't sound all that convincing on whether or not there is rust on the body. He said he didn't think so, but I think it'd be best to see it in person.
6. I got the vibe that he would prefer local buyers.

Great pics!
And what a great idea for the custom paint-job... Just buy some duct tape and bang, silver stripe !

Ugh, that poor van. They couldn't just bolt up that front right wheel and drop it off the floor jack for a photo? Hope it gets saved.

I think that silver stripe was a dealer option. Both of my '85's had it.

Missing title, not that fun to deal with in CA. Back fees, lien, salvage title etc.

This looks a fair deal to me- honest ad, no visible rust, plus the nice bluestar weekender interior. 98% sure I've been in this van at some local events and it's as clean as it looks.

My van was similar, not quite as bad, but definitely rust speckled around the engine bay. I slapped some Mar-Hyde on it when the engine was out and moved on with my life. I regret not painting the whole thing, hah.

This VW has been relisted 3+ times on ebay. First time it hit high 20s, then $18k, then relisted again just now. I don't know what is up with it but the seller seems fishy in my opinion. Very little mention of the rust. Take a look at the rocker with the sliding door open. It looks incredibly rusty. I'd stay far away from it.

Wow, this ain't bad. Get it down to $10k maybe, and that's a solid ride. AC, engine conversion, full camper.

Did I read that correctly? It has rear airbags?

it's funny what you people out west consider rust.

that sliding door track is chipped off paint.. likely from grit that wasn't cleaned out from under the roller wheel. and sure it's not perfect but can be cleaned and repainted.. it's superficial at best..

that white westy is near immaculate by eastern standards

Typical kitchen rust, and needs some brake work, but the interior seems to be in really good shape. Price seems very fair, if not on the low side. Someone who can repair the seam rust and address the brake overhaul could have a nice running driving full Westy for under $10k.

Aircooled
Has quite a bit of rust.
Doesn't look great... kind of like it may have been sitting for a while
Needs to be smogged.
If it runs I'd offer like 6-8k in Socal
