We’ve had a great variety of Vanagons on GCFSB recently, from some non-Westy deals to some of the 20 year old Westfalias that cost more than brand-new VWs. Today’s Kermitized Westy provides a great happy medium, combining the utility and campability of the pop-top legend with an extraordinarily good price. Even at the Buy-It-Now price, it’s a steal compared to most Vanagons that look like this. The weak, 1982-only naturally-aspirated diesel may be partially to blame for the low price, but with this low of miles I’m thinking this original owner just does not know what other Westies are going for. If you can’t handle the well-earned “Slow Moving Vehicle” sticker, you could do any number of engine swaps and quickly have a van worth 3 times what it’s selling for now.

I love my Westy and you will too! She starts up every time with no hesitation, shifts smooth, and rides great on long trips. The inside is VERY CLEAN, and all original. EVERY CURTAIN IS THERE, and the mosquito screen is there as well! Also the original front and side curtains are also there. NO RUST, NO MOLD, NO MILDEW. I have taken excellent care of this RARE Westfalia. Please email me for any questions or for specific pictures that may not be posted. Thank you!
The GREEN AND WHITE color combo is pretty extreme but it will certainly get some smiles. With just 50k miles and a single owner, it doesn’t matter how slow this thing is – it’s a great deal that someone could enjoy or flip and get plenty of value out of either option.
