84 Vanagon Westfalia 4-spd 1.9L WBX Westy

Up for sale is a great entry level 84 Volkswagen Westy from Cali with a stock 1.9l engine and a 4-spd manual trans with 240k miles.  Cosmetically not perfect but a good starter for someone who wants a budget Westy willing to give it cosmetic attention here and there.  Starts right up and zips around nicely. Ready for the long haul?  Maybe.  I'd personally take it cross-country tomorrow but it would be best to get to know it around town for a few weeks first.  

This is a factory full Westy with poptop, stove, fridge, sink and cabinetry, upper and lower beds, etc. Manual windows and door locks, factory AC (currently inop), stereo present but not working. Dash heater and rear heater work great. Comes with some extra parts (starter, etc)

I recently put in about $2k in service work including: new front heater core & blower motor, tune up (plugs, wires etc), rear brake shoes, front brake caliper, ignition switch, hatch struts, etc. Also new pop-top seals and new 3-window poptop canvas by previous owner. I got this rig last fall as part of some VW horse trading, but now I've run out of time/money on restoring it and I just need to let it go for a bargain. This van has been re-painted over the stock sandstone (orange) color and in places you can see this. Needs a little attention here and there but is a good starting point for someone's summer road adventures. No pending mechanical issues that I am aware of.

Cash talks and reasonable offers considered. Lowballers need not inquire and tire kickers please don't waste my time. Clear title in hand and currently has OR temp tags good for the next 3-wks. Located in Corvallis, OR.

VIN: WV2ZB0250EH133426 

Asking $4500.  Email me if you are interested.
