Double Euro Content: 1991 Volkswagen EuroVan

As much as I like to talk about the high prices being fetched for Corrados, GTIs and Sciroccos, the reality is the biggest numbers being asked and pulled from 1980s and 1990s Volkswagens are the vans. They’re not something I generally cover, but once in a while one pops up that is surprising and worth note. Today’s is no exception.

What attracted my attention first was the year – 1991. Of course, the main problem there is that in the U.S. market, the Eurovan didn’t launch until 1992. Volkswagen of America was still selling the niche and expensive T3 at that point. So was this a case of a transposition error or just an uninformed seller?

The second thing I noticed as I looked through the description was the engine. U.S. customers solely got the 2.5 liter inline-5 gasoline engine, but Europeans had the option of the 2.4 liter diesel. Initially I figured this was a swap, but closer inspection revealed it was a fully stock Euro import! Rated at 76 horsepower, the AAB probably makes the T4 feel about the speed of the T3 – which is to say glacial. The color is LP6M Caribbean Green which was seen on U.S. spec models, and it looks like the center caps have been repainted or replaced from their stock silver to black. Otherwise, we’re not shown very much – the links to the photos at the bottom were broken in the browsers I tried. That hasn’t slowed down bidders, who happily have crested $9,000 with a few days to go. That’s a tidy amount for a low-spec non-Weekender/MV variant of the T4, but then the condition and Euro status are rarely seen here. It will be very interesting to see where this Euro EuroVan will end up.

  1. My dad had an euro van. It was a dog as it was always in the shop. However it was a roomy van for its size

  2. So looks like the car is in Germany and not US. Figure the buyer will have to add atleast $3K to ship it over…..or maybe more ?

  3. @Arun – from the listing, vehicle location is listed as Vermont, and in the listing the seller discloses that it was imported but looks like not registered:

    “Imported in August 2017 and stored inside , ( LEGAL IN USA , MORE THAN 25 YEARS )”
