VW Vanagon Westfalia Camper

1980 Volkswagen Vanagon L with original 2.0 liter engine, fully rebuilt with brand new AMC heads at 90k miles by a retired aircraft mechanic in Auburn, CA. Only 125,500 ORIGINAL miles! Four speed standard transmission shifts smooth and tight. Passes CA smog every two years with a brand new catalytic converter. Currently on Non-Op for the last few months due to Covid travel restrictions. All fees and registration are current and up to date.

The van also includes the original “California RV Dwelling” sticker, which are very hard to come by once removed. This sticker certifies the Westy as an RV, which affords certain rules and regulations that regular vans do not. (If you’re a beer person, you’ll like these RV rules!)

This is one of the absolute first Vanagon Westy’s to roll off the line in West Germany, #0005186, a very rare and early Vanagon – manufactured in June of ‘79 (original inner drivers door manufacturers sticker still intact). One of the first 6000 Vanagon’s EVER made! And even more special, it’s only one of the first 300 Westfalia’s made from the iconic Vanagon chassis. Westfalia badge #269!

This cheerful, happy, hippy bus is dang-near all original, including all Westfalia equipment as installed by the factory. Some minor cosmetic changes, like chrome hubcaps and stripes were added by the previous owner, who used the van lightly for ski trips from Auburn to Tahoe back in the day.

Things To Note:
– Clutch is starting to wear out, will likely need replacement in the next 1000 miles. The van is still road-ready and drivable today.
– Some light rusting and pitting (quite common for a 40 year old classic car)
– A handful of various scratches and dents collected from the backroads over the years (badges of honor) 😀
– This is a VW Van that has been driven and kept up with, but like any classic old car or VW, you must keep up with maintenance and keep the legend alive!
– Treat this van with care and gentleness, and it’s joys will be returned ten fold.
