1985 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon Brown

I am very motivated to sell this van. I I live in Alaska. The van is in Ft. Collins, CO. I will be coming to CO to get this sold from March 27th-April 3rd. Must sell!! Please contact me with questions or to make an offer!
It is currently at Mr. Mechanic and Rocky Mtn Westy. The engine was running rich so I took it in and they got it started, but the plugs were fouled. Now it won't start again and I am reluctant to put any money to it, as I need it sold asap. I am selling it as is. The mechanics think it could need heads replaced and a couple other high priced repairs to the engine and a tune up to get it running smooth. **** they do Subaru conversions and currently have a great used 1.9 L engine that they would do an engine replacement with for $2,500.00!!!!*** That is a smoking deal for an engine swap. I would highly recommend this instead of a head repair. Or is you have an engine and want to swap it yourself, or would like to put a more high powered engine in/ conversion, then this is Your Van!
If you did the engine replacement with Mr. Mechanic (mentioned above) and a couple other odds and ends to get it running top, I think you would pay around $3,000.00 and have a really great rig!
1985 VW Westfalia Camping Vanagon. Mocha Brown. Original Paint. Great rig. SO fun! Only selling because I had to upgrade to a Toyota Sunrader to live in for the winter. Need to sell it NOW because I am moving back to Alaska for work for the future.
