1987 Volkswagen Vanagon Syncro

We’ve featured a few Tintop Syncros here before, and they present an interesting alternative to the more commonly seen (and voraciously desired) Syncro Westy. They lack the pop-top and its attendant hipness, height advantages, and sleeping space, but cut a slick line accentuating the box-on-wheels. The Syncro helps this out, lifting it up like the control cabin of an AT-AT in The Empire Strikes Back. Everything looks to be in order on this 95k-mile example, especially with new wheels, bumpers, and awning. It may be the 7-seat arrangement, making camper conversion a little more involved, but it could also serve as the coolest mountain shuttle out there.

WOW! Cap City brings you this 1987 Vanagon Syncro GL 7-Passenger finished in Wolfram Grey over grey cloth and ONLY 94K original miles! Factory Differential lock! Looks and drives GREAT! Shifts as it should! No vibrations at all from the Drive-line! When this one arrived we were in total awe at how clean and corrosion free it is. There was 0 seam rust on this one! The underside is awesome! This has a clean Carfax and lived life in the Southeast which probably led to the condition of this one. We did a full CCMS service on this one in addition to New GW Style wheels and All-Terrain Tires, New ARB Awning, New Bumpers, New ABS front door panels, New Kenwood Stereo with Aux/iPhone ports and MORE! Paint is very nice! Nice original interior showing minor wear. Don’t miss this! Priced extremely well at under $20K!

The blue is classic Vanagon while the wheels are one of the most popular improvements in the Vanagon world right now. Other than the Syncro it’s nothing out of the ordinary, but that 4WD name drives the price up on any model it graces. The price seems in line with the other Tintop Syncro Vanagons we’ve featured, which both sold for around $16k but were not quite as clean. An offer of around $17k might snag it, giving you an awesome 4WD van for the price of a new econobox.
