The VW Westy/Bus/Vanagon/Camper has been a staple to the great explorers of our past 40 years. With many different setups and configurations this model that VW produced has given many people a fantastic way to explore the USA. Easy to work on, abundant amount of parts, and instant credibility at any campsite or concert that your roll into. The strong following of these will always remain with all generations.

Offered here is a stunning 1981 Volkswagen Vanagon L that was very nicely restored about 8yrs ago and it shows extremely well today. We have had a lot of these VW's through our showrooms and this is a top candidate for originality, cleanliness, and quality. Painted in the iconic Ivory (Elfenbein) exterior and beige cloth seats, really allow this van to stand out. Inside the bus is very nicely appointed with working Clarion stereo with aux and USB setup. LED interior lights brighten up the cabin and provide the extra light during camping. Fold down rear bench to bed is comfortable with newer cushion and easy to operate. Step upstairs to the pop top and the penthouse suite will really get you excited about camping with newer canvas top and screens. Inside the kitchen is a two burner stove, swivel table, working sink, mini-fridge and lots of cabinets for storage of food and supplies.

Behind the wheel is a joy as the massive steering wheel navigates the roads with ease and the peppy 2.0L with 4spd manual can get you around with ease. When not cruising down the highway, swivel the front seats around and deal your best hand in poker and crack open a beer and enjoy the campsite in style.

This bus started its journey in California then Nevada and Arizona before coming to us. Long ownership and a lot of recent service that includes new; 16 gallon fuel tank, fuel pump, fuel lines, injector seals, spark plugs, cap, rotor, ignition wires, clutch plate, clutch disc, resurfaced flywheel, master cylinder, brake master cylinder, front brake pads, rear drum shoes, tie rods, ball joints, bushings, 5 new tires, windshield, new seals on doors and windows, new battery, new speakers, upgraded Shurlfo faucet kit, new flooring, sound proofing and new outdoor camping hookups for water and AC/DC.

This is a stellar setup and one that will get plenty of attention at any car show, campsite, concert or show. Drive and enjoy the ride. Mileage shows 21k on the working odometer and was replaced from a previous odometer that read over 170k miles at one point.
