1984 Volkswagen Vans
Car for sale by WeBe Autos in Calverton, New York 11933
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.
The Dodge Li'l Red Express set a standard on how to make a great performance truck. All Dodge Li'l Red Express trucks came from the factory painted in Bright Canyon Red in 1978 and Medium Canyon Red in 1979. Every Li'l Red Express was a regular cab Adventurer with a stepside bed.
Classic Car Overview
To describe my 1984 Westphalia Vanagon Camper as accurately as I can, I have provided its factory specs. Since this example is completely original and/or restored to original, these features are how the van came and how it exists today.
The main distinguishing feature of the 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon was that it had more power, which, although it was no longer air-cooled, made the vehicle far more useful for travel. This 84 Vanagon is powered by a 1.9-liter, water-cooled four-cylinder engine that produces 83 hp, up from 67 hp for the previous year (+25%).. The engines fuel-injection system is Digi-Jet.
This rear-wheel-drive Vanagon and has equipped with rack and pinion steering, power-assisted front disc brakes, and front and rear independent suspension, plus a huge sliding side door and a liftgate at the rear.
It came with reclining front bucket seats which also rotate, a rear window defogger, three-speed windshield wipers, an electric windshield washer system, special plaid upholstery, and meager sound system which has been upgraded to an Alpine AM/FM/CD.
The Vanagon Camper, produced by Westphalia is equipped with a pop-up roof, a stove, kitchen cabinet and sink, 2 swivel tables, and refrigerator and option air conditioning (unhooked but present). For a complete description, please read below. If an item is described, it is on my van.

The condition of this van:This van looks factory brand new; this is because it received a full professional $10k paint job from an esteemed restorer of early Porsches and Jags. All the glass was removed, new weather stripping installed throughout (windows, roof, door jambs, etc.) and special attention paid to the body seams for a true factory-fresh look.
I went though the vehicle from bumper to bumper and any item that did not come up to standard was replaced with the help of The Bus Depot parts and the Affordable Germen. I mean everything from bumper tips to radio aerial, factory decals, door handles, sliding door and rear hatch interior panels, etc. was replaced as needed. The stereo is an upgraded AM/FM/CD system using Alpine components, which were the choice brand of the day.
The interior, amazingly, is ALL ORIGINAL, save for the drivers seat, which was re-covered in the original fabric (no longer available). All switches and lights work properly.
The engine received new fuel injectors and a high performance coil (starts on a dime hot or cold), new stainless steel coolant transfer pipes, a new radiator. New brake lines were install throughout and an original exhaust system was located and installed. A full service was just complete with coolant and oil change.
Here is a Vanagon that will take you back to yesteryear not just in spirit; its as if you could buy a new one all over again. That was my goal and I hope the new owner enjoys the van as much as I did re- creating it. For Sale By Owner and Located in Mattituck, NY
