1986 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon Westfalia Additional Info:

RACKED AND READY - Beautiful low mileage clean title Westfalia full pop-top camper. Fabulous Thule and Yakima roof racks, locking carrier and 4 spot hitch-mounted bike carrier included, ready for your kayaks, skis, bikes, surf/paddle boards, and camp gear.

This one is special. Comes with thousands of dollars of GoWesty extras and upgrades including heavy duty steel bumpers, hitch kit, South African grill, up-sized Mercedes-style alloy wheels, fridge delete and cabinet kit and additional upgrades throughout such as extra interior lighting, hydraulic roof lifters, custom fit mats, and a center console with cup-holders.
This is where it gets really good. You will be the fastest, strongest, most efficient and durable Westy on the road with a 60K low mileage 2011 2.5L completely rebuilt Subaru EJ motor with all new components. This super clean Smallcar.com kit is beautifully installed with great attention to detail. Even the tachometer screen was upgraded to match the new more powerful motor's RPM range. No expense was spared at a cost exceeding $13,000 for the upgraded power plant now with less than 1000 miles. The air-conditioner is ice cold and both heaters work perfectly. A new premium battery was just installed.

Even more; this Vanagon is completely rust free and the paint and body are virtually perfect without even a rock chip. It is truly striking. A black hardened rock chip coating was professionally added for long term protection. The glass is professionally tinted and the rubber and seals are all great. The interior and upholstery are near perfect.

This van drives fabulously. Solid, quiet and straight down the road and it is a freeway flyer keeping up with the modern traffic without issue. The camper is 34 years old and not perfect so expect a minor flaw here and there. Comes with all the original Vanagon and Westfalia Camper books, tools etc.
The Westfalia Camper seats and sleeps four, has a sink, two water tanks, a two-burner stove, a swing out table, a wardrobe, curtains, bug screens, window screens and loads of cabinets.
At the Buy it Now price it comes with a preferred fridge replacement 40 quart cooler that is 12v and 120v so you can stock it in the house, cool it overnight and then load it in the van, plug it in and be on your way. It can be set flat or vertical with removable interior shelves.
This van has all the originality that make these so much fun, a collectors item and a great investment with all the upgrades we wish Volkswagen could have done 34 years ago. It's racked and ready for the road.

Why should you buy an 1986-1991 Vanagon?:
(from Gowesty.com - a popular authority on Vanagons)
1986-1991: These are the best of the Vanagons. They are easily identified by their rectangular (instead of round) headlights. The ‘86 and ‘87s had smaller thin steel "bumpers," and the ‘88-‘91s had larger fiberglass "bumpers" and an added ventilation duct at the rear of each of the rear side windows. Many people think that these Vanagons were better because of the increase in displacement from 1900cc to 2100cc, but in fact, this was the least important change. Indeed, the two engines are essentially identical in construction and design, with the exception of a longer throw crankshaft (74mm instead of 69mm, increasing displacement from 1915cc to 2110cc), and an improved #1 main bearing design. The more important changes were: improved exhaust, ignition, fuel injection (Digifant), brakes, and (most importantly) COOLING systems. The cooling system was COMPLETELY re-worked for 1986 and stayed basically unchanged through the end of 1991 production. The new cooling system had fewer parts, was much better at keeping air out, and was an easier system to maintain. Furthermore, the newer engine block with the better #1 main bearing design was also slightly bigger inside, enabling the displacement to be increased above 2300cc. As a rule of thumb, I tell folks to stay away from Vanagons with round headlights. The price difference between a clean 1985 camper and a 1986 camper is small compared to the difference in value; the later is a much better vehicle indeed, and worth the extra money they command.
