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

1982 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia Camper - One Owner - 24k Miles - Purchased New at Battle Creek Volkswagen - Assuan Brown Exterior - 1.6L Diesel 4 Cylinder - 4 Speed Manual - Original Window Sticker and Purchase Paperwork - Westy Time Capsule Alright fans of VW Vans, weve got a special Vanagon Westfalia for you to take a look at! The van we have here for your consideration is a well maintained, one family owned, highly original example. As we all know, the VW van has cemented its place in pop culture thanks to a lineage that spans generations. The unique layout of a rear engine, rear wheel drive van equates to more passenger or cargo space inside. It makes for a perfect platform for a van that is a camper. If youve ever wondered what it was like to walk into a VW dealership in 1982 and take a look at a brand new Vanagon, looking at this Vanagon is about as close as you may come to that. To put this vans age into perspective, the music charts at the time were topped by the likes of Men At Work, Hall and Oates, Olivia Newton-John, Chicago, Survivor, and Huey Lewis and the News among many others. E.T., Rocky III, and Fast Times At Ridgemont High were popular at the box office. Trivial Pursuit was new to the market, Sony Walkman units were gaining popularity, while Ronald and Nancy Reagan occupied the White House. We dont like to make the claim that a vehicle looks brand new, but this VW is extremely impressive and very close to looking new. Of course looking at it very closely, small imperfections can be found, but we do mean small. This Westy has been loved by one family since it rolled off the VW of Battle Creek Michigan showroom floor, in November of 82. This is a P27 Deluxe Westfalia Van rather than the P21 which was also offered at the time. Service records, original books and manuals, and the original window sticker are included with this special van. Assuan Brown paint with the immediately recognizable white Westfalia top are a handsome combination for this Westy. The standard squared off body lines, sliding door, lots of windows, and small efficient wheels and tires are just what you would expect from a Volkswagen van. The original paint is glossy throughout with no fading evident, all trim and badging is in great condition, and all window seals are in great condition. The Westfalia Camper upgrade to the Vanagon featured a few helpful amenities one may need to go camping in comfort. Things like a refrigerator, two burner stove, sink, swing-out tables, swiveling seats, and two beds - the back seat folds flat, and the second bed is in the pop-top area. Storage cabinets, drawers, and storage closets with mirrors are other extras inside this van. Multicolor seat upholstery was standard, as was Wall to Wall carpeting. Everything inside the van is in great condition right down to the table tops and the dash trim, which can be areas that commonly show age on Vanagons like this one. The driving position is comfortable, although sitting at the front of the vehicle can take some getting used to when parking. It is easy to forget that there is not a hood and front bumper extended off the front to worry about. Vanagons are easy to maneuver despite the fact that they are inherently slow. But lets face it, Vanagons are not purchased to race around town in, but easy cruises in this van will have you (and others on the road) grinning from ear to ear. Providing power to the rear wheels is a 1.6 Liter Flat-4 Diesel engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. Recent maintenance on the van includes replacement of timing and accessory belts, the brake booster, brake hoses, front calipers, rear shoes, and wheel cylinders. This Westy is ready for adventure! An extremely nice, low mileage example of a Vanagon Westfalia is hard to find, especially in the past few years as demand has gone up. Westfalia Vanagons are awesome vehicles which are perfect for camping trips for a few
