1983 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon Westfalia 2wd Full camperLet start at this: Forced to sell this amazing van due to leaving the county and have no time to finish it a proper way.
Spend a lot of time and recourses on this westy, oo bad I’m running out of time and money…. my loss your gain….
So here we go:
1983 VW Vanagon Wesfalia with original 79.917 Miles. Few month ago I decided to fully restore it and swap the motor to Subaru 2.2L.
Striped the body, ulled the motor/tranny, ulled the glass out, asically gut it out to the bones.
Fully restored it at a reputable body shop, omplete pain job was done, sed only high-end materials.
Upgraded front and rear black metal bumpers, ll new seals around pop top.
Now the body is spotless from top to the bottom, o rust underneath.
Undercoated in common rusty spots under the van and engine bay.
Cleaned and painted in black fuel tank ready to be installed.
Interior: Just picked up high-end upholstery front seats, ustom work for this van.
Upholstery guy used high quality material, e-upholstered cushions, prings- super comfortable. Seats build to handle long road trips.
The back folding bench is in great shape despise the age. I have another piece that that goes on atop of the engine bay cover (not shown in a picture).
The carpet is excellent condition all around (79k hwy miles on a van)
Kitchen: Kitchen looks like new, abinets open and close fine, mean its 1983 but it looks well preserved and barely used. I dint test the fridge and appliance recently, ut it worked good back in a days.
Suspension: Van has 2” lift and upgraded aftermarket shocks 8K miles ago.
Mercedes R15 gowesty rims with brand new tires (Nokian Hakkapeliita 205 60 R15 made in Finland) Also have a spare matching rim and tire. Original wheels and tires comes with a van.
Sterling feels tight, an drove like new before I pulled the motor for conversion.
Engine/transmission: We pulled the original air-cooled engine with a transmission at 79.917 miles with intention to convert it to Subaru 2.2.
I have transmission comes with van, hifts great with no issues.
The air-cooled engine I used for another project. (Original engine doesn’t come with a van)
Now I have fully built 1996 2.2L Subaru engine (AJ22) that comes with a van. ONLY OEM parts used to rebuild the motor, ork preformed by Subaru professional mechanic.
I brought a used running 96 Subaru legacy with 170k miles, drove the subi a week before:)) pulled the motor, omplete wiring harness with ECU, peed sensor, tarter, /C compressor, adiator, ll A/C houses and all that stuff for conversion.
All is left to do: Install the engine/finish Subaru conversion and you will have one of a kind, ell built Westfalia Camper.
The sad part: Running out if time to finish the installation of the engine. I build a 35.000$ westy, ot a lot left to finish for it to be perfect and running on a road again for thousands and thousands miles.
The van is not running at a moment, t needs to be "finished" please read the decription:)
