    Thread: VR6 Vanagon Westfalia

    1. 08-08-2011 07:27 PM #1
      I have a 1982 Vanagon westy with a clean VR6 swap for sale or trade. The motor came from my 2000 Jetta that was demolished from the rear. KEP adapter plate and KEP stage 1 clutch, new billett crack pipe, thermostat housing,cover and adapter, totally new suspension, bushings,balljoints, Billstein HD shocks, etc.new wheel bearings front and rear, New brake master cylinder, new calipers in front, new shoes in rear,transmission is BUILT, 10" ring gear instead of 8",reinforced case,4 spider gears instead of 2,TALL Weddle race gears, chipped computer from C2, 17" mercedes wheels,pop top, 2 beds, stove, 3 way fridge,water tank, propane tank, shore power, smoked tail lenses with new bulb holders,smoked corner lenses with new bulb holders, I'm sure there is much more I'm not thinking of at the moment but will update the post as I think of things.
      The bad: it could use a paint job, Has 1 small spot of rust, I have a new patch panel to fix it though, just need to have it installed, carpet could use to be replaced, not torn anywhere, just almost 30 years old....

      I just had some brand new Goodyear Eagle GT tires put on it. 255. 40.ZR17 on the back, 245. 40ZR17 on front, as well as had it aligned, AND got new poptop canvas as well as rubber seals for camper top and luggage rack.

      $7500 or trade

      If I still have it this winter, I plan to take all the windows and interior out and paint it a pearl white inside and out.

      What trades are you considering?

    5. 08-17-2011 04:59 PM #5
      Smaller cars and motorcycles are the main trades I am considering, but am willing to entertain lots of other things as full or partial trades as well.

      It would be nice to know where this was. I'm in eastern Pennsylvania

      I'm interested... Does it seem almost as FAA as the jetta? Gettin bout 22-24 mpg highway or more?

      Where is it? More pics?

    10. 09-16-2011 12:57 PM #10
      The van is located in Louisville KY. I would meet someone halfway with it if they were coming from another state.
      It gets about 20 mpg depending on how you drive it.

      I wish this was posted for sale for this price in late May before I bought my Vanagon Syncro project. More money up front but I could have gone camping this summer.

      If I could unload my Syncro this would make a sweet DD and summer camping rig. GLWS

    20. 05-20-2012 03:15 PM #20
      Pm'ed you.

      Hope to hear back from ya.

    21. 05-30-2012 02:54 PM #21
      This is an awesome van! I took it to Red River Gorge for some holiday camping with the family. 2 beds and a kitchen sure is awesome to have when camping!
      Come get this thing before the price goes up because I constantly upgrade things, but never hardly use it....

    22. 05-30-2012 03:00 PM #22
      I added some new pics

    23. 06-02-2012 12:53 PM #23
      Could you email me some more pictures of your van? I'm very interested, since it would fit into my price range. My email address is patrick.gnehm@gmail.com. Thank you!

    24. 06-09-2012 09:39 AM #24
      Still have the van? I'm in the market, and looking to buy real soon. Also, I have a Ducati Monster to throw in towards trade.
      Let me know


      I sent you a PM also.

      Was this a diesel watercooled van to start or are you running custom rad setup? Awesome, either way. My gf's looking for an auto. If this were I'd have her on it (but it'd also break)
