1983 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon Additional Info:

1983 diesel water cooled Vanagon with Westfalia cabinets and such.
Relisting this because last winner ran out of money so couldn't buy it.
Engine has been replaced with matching 1.6 L non-turbo diesel.
See videos for operating condition.
Probably engine swap to a large turbo model would be your best bet, AHU or 1Z engine?
Great project to finish up.
Took it to local VW shop. The compression tested out to 400 psi in all cylinders so the engine is solid but injection pump could not be timed so needs to be rebuilt. With the injection pump fixed this is ready to roll. I've driven is a little but it's very gutless as-is, also smokes due to injection pump timing. Recommend bringing a trailer because you will probably get a ticket for the black smoke.
Original paint.
No rust, maybe one small spot, but this is virtually a rust free van, spent much of its life in Arizona.
Undercarriage photos show that there is no rust underneath.
Wheel well photos show there is no rust around the wheels, just a little behind the rear right wheel
Owners and shop manuals.
Glass all good.
Excellent roof rack.
Drives, goes and stops, I drove it home last year.
Not a pop top so no issues with the mechanism or canvas.
Some clear coat is rubbing off
Injection pump needs repair.
Ignition switch in steering column was replaced with a new ignition switch hot wired in, see one photo. New switch needs to be swapped out with the bad on in the steering column.
Couple turn signals.
Stereo to be hooked up.
Sliding door missing outside handle.
Some of the foam pad cloth is torn but most is good.
Roof rack key is missing.
Visors over windscreen are a little rough.
