Items that new owner may (or may not) want to address:

LPG tang is original - new owner may want to replace this tank with modern equipment. $380.00 See GoWesty . com

Many service stations refuse to fill original style tanks.

Aftermarket cassette AM/FM stereo - perhaps from late 90's may not meet new owner's

technology requirements. Installation is simple and modern technology inexpensive.

Speakers and speaker installation would be the more-difficult & expensive portion - complete.

Air Conditioning - Needs charge or convert to 134a.

It is important to note that it is working - all running gear in working order!Original R12 unit. These require recharging annually at a minimum. Your research in this area is recommended. R12 (Freon) and CA do not mesh. Vehicle is free of R12. Opening the windows with rain deflectors and side windows with upgraded screens has worked for us in southern CA.You may considerconverting to 134a.(Heater works great front and rear.)

Extremely original look - special attention to preserve the original look of this 2WD Westfalia.

Original canvas tent = rare indeed.

No lifts, fender flares, aftermarket bumpers here.

If that is something the new owner is looking for, this is a clean canvas to begin that project. Otherwise, she's family & user friendly as presented.

Stickers on rear cabinet - seller will remove at new owner's request. No flaws beneath.

Shipping: Responsibility of new owner. Seller available for your or shipping company arrival. This must happen no later than June 26th, 2017. No exceptions. We depart CA on June 27th. Please make arrangements.

Questions: Do not hesitate.

Inspection: Welcomed. Vehicle is available for inspection & located in Thousand Oaks, CA 91362. Passed CA smog 4/27/2017. CA registration good through Feb 2018.

What's next for seller / Why is it being sold:

Vanagon is in the blood. Buyer receives supreme example of 1987 Volkswagen Westfalia Vanagon with above mentioned service and care --- without purchasing associated labor costs.

If she stays, I'm forced to store in climate controlled facility for up to 24 months. Work is taking me out of CA. No time to play. There's nothing left to do other than regular maintenance and bathing. I take a lot joy in fixing, refurbishing and renewing.

This is NOT a business. This is a passion.
