1983 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon Rebuilt engine from Quality German"Mello Yellow" is finally for sale. After many kitchen table discussions, my friend has finally decided to part with his Westfalia. Kids are grown and camping just is not his wife's thing. This is a 1983.5, water cooled Westfalia. A new motor was installed in 2008 from Quality German. Pennisula Automotive Repair performed the engine installation in 2008 and "mello Yellow" has not had many miles put on her since. The clutch was also changed out along the way. "Mello Yellow" was repainted at one time during her life. The paint job still shines nicely. Along the way, "mello yellow" has met with a few bumps and bruises(see photos and video) on the passenger sliding door and rear quarter. Still looks presentable but not perfect. Just adds to her character. She has just been enjoyed.her entire life. When her curtains became old and brittle, the Mrs. sewed her some new ones. All the camping gear works. I fired the burners, pumped the water and checked the fridge. It is ready for your camping adventures. It has stacks and stacks of records, manuals and some spare parts such as filters and hoses. She has never left him stranded. Along the way, a few instrument clusters have been changed out. The latest one has a tachometer along side which in my opinion is more useful than the dreaded non-working clock. The wheels are from a later model and powdercoated to match her body. The pop top is in good condition with exception of the screen which has a few frays. The tables are both present. The z-bed fold flat as does the top bunk. There is no evidence that the current or previous owners smoked in "mello yellow". They just enjoyed her and maintained her to the best of their ability. "Mello Yellow" is selling for NO RESERVE. Final bid gets to take her home and camp away.
