"Everything you need, including the kitchen sink." 1986 VW Vanagon magazine advertisement
Motor Trend described from whence the VW Vanagon came: "In the 1960s it was hippies and flower-power that put Volkswagen's minimalist utilitarian Type 2 Bus on the map. Then in the 1970s, the sexual revolution (with baby boom hormonal activity peaking) made vans of all sorts popular, often lined with shag carpeting, disco balls, and bars to put occupants in the mood. By 1980, just in time for the no-nonsense family minivan era, Volkswagen rolled out its third generation of the Type 2-the first to make a clean break from the styling of the 1949 original, growing by 2.5 inches in length, 3.3 in width, and 0.2 in height, while gaining some 130-plus pounds. It also got a new name: Vanagon."
Get your roadmaps out (or maybe Google maps) and plan a long getaway in this awesome Westfalia Vanagon! This Van hails from California and its overall condition is a testament to that. Perfect for camping excursions, this awesome van is full of upgrades, and extremely reliable.
All exterior finishes are in great condition. This VW has been repainted at some point recently, which has been done in the factory Pastel White color. Van Cafe 15" alloy wheels and new tires have been added which give this Westy a little more of a modern look.
The interior of this Vanagon is full of upgrades which have been neatly integrated. A few of those upgrades are; LED Bulbs/additional light fixtures, Pioneer Bluetooth stereo, Truckfridge TF49 modern refrigerator with Rocky Mountain Westy install kit, Jack Bombay pop top shocks, Second Battery system, and large gauge wiring for charging system. In addition to the upgrades, the rest of the interior is in great condition. Seating surfaces, carpeting, door panels, screens, and canvas for the pop top all show nicely.
Another great feature of this Westy is the fuel efficient 2.1L "Waterboxer" 4 cylinder engine mated to an automatic transmission. The engine was rebuilt at approximately 186k with new AMC heads added. A great deal of upgrades have been completed on the engine and driveline recently and include things such as: new Bilstein shocks, Bosch Alternator, front and rear brakes, tie rod ends, front upper ball joints, GoWesty aluminum thermostat housing, Rocky mountain Cooling pipes and coolant tower, serviced CV's/boots, new catalytic converter (passes California smog), new heater core,/blower motor, fuel tank reseal kit, roof solar panel, custom front and rear lights, and brand new front seats. This Vanagon is all set for the open road. Get your roadmaps out and plan a trip, this Westy will have no trouble providing transportation, and living quarters. Smiles per mile are high with this one! Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors. Call if interested or e-mail with any questions. Thank you for looking.
