VW Kombi Van Seeing Resurgence in Popularity

The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.


Classic Car Overview

This Vanagon is in absolute condition. Besides new upholstery on rear bench/bed, the van is all original on the outside and interior. Modern additions include 100w Renogy Solar panel with professional installation of panel and wire routing with zero drilling. Renogy charge controller and 88amp 12v battery setup. Also includes Whynter high efficiency refrigerator. New fresh water lines  have been installed as well as a new water pump. This camper is ready for your next adventure! All liners, privacy curtains, and bug shields are original. Additional add on include the Rhino Designs center console with matching exterior. This solves the cupholder and cockpit storage problem of the vanagons. The liner of the pop top is in immaculate condition. And finally, the original blue paint still has it beautiful blue luster. Exterior flaws include the dent on the front panel which has zero paint scratch, and the driver side rear panel with some scratching. ZERO RUST. You will not find rust that will tarnish your investment!! The undercarriage of this van is actually stunning as well as the engine bay. The clutch was replaced at 165k and feels amazing. This van shifts and runs so smooth. Complete engine check done by an Idaho VW legend which is where I purchase the vehicle initially . The owner is a Volkswagen dealer and this was his collection showroom van for the last decade. The speedo was replaced at 170k!! You can check mileage verification through carfax. Come see and drive this Westfalia and experience the genius of German engineering of the 80s. The exhaust is a brand new empi and maintains a quiet ride. This has improved gas mileage to 17 mpg with the addition of the brand new German Weber carb! This greatly improves safe horsepower on these boxer engines while also helping with efficiency. I also have the original CALIFORNIA SMOG EXHAUST that is needed for the smog certification on the west coast! Simply bolt on and smog. Includes cat, heat exchanger, and muffler!!
