Classic Car Overview


A bit of background on this van: This van originally came to me from Utah in 2015. When it did, it needed a full restoration. The van was in restoration mode for most of 2015 and 2016, all the work done at two reputable and well-known Vanagon Auto Haus's. The many details are below. Over the last 3 plus years the van has served me well traveling throughout the Sierras in the summers, and in the winters, stays in the vicinity of my small beach town, Carpinteria California. The purchase price reflects all the restoration, upgrades and work it has taken to get this van back to zero miles, maintenance wise. It was appraised in 2018 by a professional company at 45k before many more upgrades and fixes. I've marked up the van to an asking price to cover all restoration and costs and the time its taken to make it so beautiful. You will not find another van like this!

It is in excellent working mechanical condition. All the camper equipment is new and functions properly. The interior is also newer and still in excellent condition. It got a full exterior restoration in 2015/16 and it still looks great.
