Seller's Description

Hey! This is our sweet vanagon for sale. The reason we are selling is simply because we don't have the time to finish our van build on this specific van. We gutted and cleaned the van, restored a lot of the vanagon cosmetics and mechanics, and made sure the van was in perfect mechanical shape for trips/adventures. We added tons of accessories, tires, rack, mirrors, lights, radio, etc. We are looking for someone who is ready to build out their vanagon however they want, for a van build, classic restoration, or even simply for the collectors out there. We are sad to see it go, we had high hopes for this vanagon but unfortunately we do need to sell ASAP. We will consider offers / OBO. Please be kind, we only want serious buyers! Thank you! The good thing about this van is that mechanically it's in perfect condition, lots of upgrades and maintenance done, automatic for ease of driving. The bad is that there is some cosmetic wear and tear, there is one dent on the sliding door not really noticeable and it's an easy fix. We haven't gotten around to it because it didn't really bother us. As far as the van specs: Runs like a champ! Water cooled engine 1.9L original! Mileage 183,000 but I drive it on weekends and during the week when needed Tin top GL modal New go westy mirrors that don't shake on highway Original seats, took out the back seats since it was broken Automatic transmission You can upgrade van with A/C New All terrain tires New gas tank seals & small tune up Smogged 3/22/21 Just renewed registration Some of the detailed upgrades & Maintenance!
