1991 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia Syncro

$_57 (4)

I’ve spent quite a few recent posts examining alternatives to my dream life-machine, a VW Westy Syncro. We’ve seen G-Wagens and O309s, to Mogs and Pinzgauers, and even two-wheel drive Westys, all looking for a go-and-live anywhere megavan. The reason I’ve spent so much time looking at these other options is that while $15k for a 70s 4×4 seems significant, $65k for a 1991 Volkswagen seems UTTERLY BONKERS. And that’s not even the top of the Sycnro Westy market! But alas, if you had an extra $50k to spend on a Mog after you spent $15k, you could probably make it pretty fricking awesome. It’d be on off-the-wall choice, but you still wouldn’t get your card to the cool-kid club, which is stingily only handed out to Vanagon owners whose vans also have name-brand pop-tops and transfer cases. But like the 911 or a Ferrari, there’s a reason for the ever-building legend of the “right ones.”

We often see people who have put a lot of work into a car list how much they’ve spent so they can undercut that amount by a bit to swing the seller. Only with Westies do you see someone say “I’ve spent $28k on this, so give me 65!” Holy moly. If you want the ultimate camper van though, this is it, and thus it commands that kind of premium. I would actually prefer the stock wheels (the spare reminded me how sweet they are), but other than that it has everything: good accessories, new engine, South African lights, etc. We’ve seen these go for over $100k, so I guess at least it’s cheaper than that?

    I’ve always loved the Westie, but $65K buy it now? Clearly someone forgot to take their meds. It’s a van that barely does 60mph, not a rare 911….

    Forget legalizing narcotics. I wouldn’t be able to afford a Yugo then!

    I can’t understand how anyone but a die hard VW fan can spend that kind of money and not buy a Mercedes Sprinter.

    Sliver, funny – Nate and I were just discussing that – but not a sprinter, the 309D Mercedes-Benz from the other day.
