It's time to re-live some memories or make some new ones in this 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia Camper. It's a classic camper with the desirable special Wolfsburg Edition two-tone, and it's loaded with all the best home-away-from-home features.
The versatile forward-control style and squared-off "bread van" look make this instantly reminiscent of the classic VW Bus. That's because the Vanagon is the more powerful, larger, and nimbler successor. But this one also has a style all its own. The Wolfsburg Edition is a rare option for this year that gave it some added premium touches. On the outside, the two-tone Merian Brown and Toscana Beige makes for an attractive color combo that just seems to represent 1980s Europe perfectly. It was resprayed later in life. Not only does that means a really nice gloss and shine today, but also it retains terrific details, like the color-matched brown wheel covers and the Westfalia camper top done in beige. In fact, this one suggests a quality life, right down to the details, like the strong gas shocks in the rear hatch and the way the doors close with authority.
The interior is all about being as comfortable as home, and that starts with the driver's seat. A plush cloth bucket seat, dual spoke steering wheel, and classic VDO gauges give the driver a commanding view of the open road in this forward-control van. There's even an easy reach to the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input to charge your phone. But the true luxuries are all behind this. It has all the right comforts, including a sink, cook top, and a place to put a refrigerator if you want. Another hallmark of the '84 Wolfsburg Edition is the dual-bucket style middle row seat. It provides more versatility when on the road, and it slides out to give you use of the kitchenette when parked. There's built-in wardrobe storage and plenty of places to sleep, including the Westfalia's iconic pop-up roof tent for comfortable camping.
Besides being larger than a VW Bus, the Vanagon is also desirable for its drivetrain package. The motor is a 1.9-liter fuel-injected flat-four. The consignor even states that this has a remanufactured engine with about half the odometer's mileage. The motor is mounted low in the body for a low center of gravity, and the weight over the rear driving wheels delivers the same power/traction advantages of the Beetle. It's not the kind of powerhouse that wins drag races, but you can feel the smart engineering it its setup. There's also a fully independent suspension and the control of a four-speed manual transmission. So if you've never driven one before, you're going to be surprised at how lively this VW feels on the road. Add in power steering and power brakes with front discs, and this is an enjoyable total driving package.
This is the distinct Westfalia Wolfsburg Edition that has a lot to love beyond its unique paint theme. So at a price like this, you're looking at an irresistible deal. Call today!!!
