1990 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia

s-l1600 (4)
This Burgundy Westy has covered some ground – 156k miles in its life – but it’s been pretty much completely refurbished mechanically with some great cosmetic touches too. Outside, its been repainted in its beautiful original hue and has the perfect (if ubiquitous) GoWesty wheels. The South African grille is another popular mod, but the quad-round setup just looks so darn good. Inside, the front seats have been replaced with blue and grey cloth Recaros from a Jetta GLI that don’t quite match the rest of the just-grey interior but are still quite sharp. All seals and the tent were redone at the time of repaint (a few years ago). The engine and transmission were rebuilt and the suspension and brakes are redone. So yeah, pretty much everything. The market is strong for nearly-perfect, well-tended Westys like this, so the seller is probably feeling pretty confident in their $29.5k price.

This is a completely redone VW Vanagon Wesfalia camper, with a rebuilt motor, transmission, cooling system, braking system and paint. The body has 156,000 miles on it and the engine and transmission have been completely rebuilt in 2013. The entire van was repainted, the original color, in 2012 with all new window, pop top, door seals and tent canvas for the top. It also has sound dynamat insulation in the entire cabin for a very quite drive. It runs perfectly and can be taken across the country without a worry. Numerous upgrades makes this a perfect westfalia to use and enjoy.

There are many other camper vans you could buy – cheaper, newer, bigger, smaller – but none would have the class and personality of this one. It’s a usable but like-new Westy, the one all the kids at the camp site want. I do too, but I just don’t think I’ll ever have $30k for a 26 year-old VW van. If you do, I would strongly advise you to consider this turnkey Burgundy beauty.
