The Vanagon was purchased out of California in 2002 by the current owner. Legendary for amassing very high mileage, this Vanagons odometer shows a relatively conservative 206,386 total miles, fewer than 6,000 miles per-year on average since new. In addition to owner literature, the sale includes a copy of the original print ad announcing the Hobie Cat Edition (which could include a Hobie Alpha sailboat and roof rack that are not included here). The exterior (one year only) silver-gray metallic original paint remains in very good condition across the entire body with minor imperfections from normal wear and tear. The original Hobie Cat rainbow striping and graphics on the sides and rear remain in excellent condition with virtually no fading or delamination. Body panels show no significant damage, with the exception of a minor dent on the lift-up rear door. All body trim (including the bumpers and the front grilles) is rendered in black, all of it free of noteworthy damage as well. Factory badging is limited to the front grille VW logo repeated on the rear with the Volkswahen and Vanagon GL model-identification. Wolfsburg Edition insignia appear on the front fenders. All the extensive cabin glass is clear and free of cracks; lighting lenses are likewise well-kept. The van body features power-outlets on the drivers side and a large sliding access door on the passenger side. The Volkswagen-embossed 5-spoke alloy wheels are in excellent condition free of road rash or surface deterioration; they are mounted with Yokohama Super Van tires. The Vanagons interior features a gray color theme executed on door panels, carpeting, and upholstery. Seat upholstery and carpeting show soil staining. The second-row seats face the rear and the third-row seat with a fold-out table in between. The front bucket seats (both twin captains-chair-style armrests) retain their original gray, fabric upholstery in well-maintained overall condition with only slight indications of wear and discoloration, especially on the passenger side. All seating positions feature nearby cupholders. The VW-logo steering wheel frames a simple but complete instrument cluster.
