Classic Car Overview

We are selling this amazing 1985 Volkswagen Vanagon! We bought it originally 3 years prior and have since put a lot of time and money into it (we put an additional ~$13,000 into it; full engine rebuild however please see list of updates below). This is the perfect vehicle for San Diego for you and your friends/family to chase waves, camp, and go on adventures with! You can fit tons of boards, friends, and extracurricular equipment into this van, which makes it extremely convenient in San Diego. This is a classic car that is becoming more and more rare as each day passes - I unfortunately have to sell it because I do not have additional space for it. Recently obtained CA registration/plates. Have title and certificate from smog check. Of note, there is currently no power steering and air conditioning. A futon mattress with a new mattress topper from Costco is included. We fold the futon in half, which allows it to be a backrest for the rear bench. The original backing to the rear bench is included (not pictured here). Please let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to come check it out.
