      1991 white Vanagon GL for Sale in Houston, Texas
      3463 mi on new engine. Engine replaced at 193,537. Engine has 12 month, 12,000 mi warranty dating from 1-29-2012.
      197,000ish mi on body
      Zero major accidents. A couple of dents.
      Most paperwork dating to '96 included.

      This is the Vanagon for you! Make an offer.

      This reliable beautiful van has been much loved, cared for, and has been the best cross country companion. I’m the original owner since 1990 and have the work documentation dating back 15 years, plus the original manual and a mechanic book. The only reason she’s being sold is because I’m going on a 4 year kayaking ocean tour and I want her in good hands. She'll take you to all the places of your dreams.

      This is the best type of bus with more room than the camper type, with a handy fold down table and folding couch/bed. Cool original curtains for you to close up shop when you sleep and nice tinted windows for privacy. This is the last year they made these nice big vans before they went to the smaller Euro van.

      Handy Man Specials:

      - The front heater won't turn off. I have the vents plugged so you can't feel the heat.
      - One head rest missing in action
      - The oil light and buzzer is sensitive and goes off every now and then, it doesn't mean anything. Manually check oil levels and the engine heat gauge. This car doesn't ever overheat because everything is new.
      - Engine liner for the engine compartment door on the inside is missing.
      - An interior panel is missing.
      - Slow power steering fluid leak that is around seven months old. I have to top it off about once a month. Haven't determined where it leaks from yet.
      - Few small exterior dents, fixing with touch up kit.

      This is a very cozy and reliable vehicle, however you want a mechanic who knows what they're doing with these cars.

      Don't hesitate to call me with any questions.

      Disclaimer: When you buy it, I need you to drop me off at the water in Houston, Texas so I may begin my four year kayaking adventure!
