1991 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon CaratThis is a 1991 VW Vanagon in good overall shape. I have owned this vehicle for 5 years and have loved it the whole time. It has been my daily driver the entire time. Some good times have been had in it, ut it is time to move on. Here's your chance to take over Murphy's fun filled life. It spent much of its life in Oklahoma, hen made it to Denver where I bought it, hen I traveled with it here to NY 2.5 yrs ago. It has overall proved to be pretty reliable. I have done much to improve it, estore it, r upgrade it. Many of its quirks have been worked out, lthough some do remain of course. (See heading "transmission"... It's not a unicorn after all) Some of that work is outlined here:
Engine:2.1L WaterBoxerNewly rebuilt heads and fresh HeadgasketsNew Full Distributor and Hall SensorNew Plugs and WiresNewer AlternatorNewer BatteryNew Water PumpNew ThermostatAll New FiltersProbably more work that I forgot about... basically it runs smooth.All fresh fluids.New Fuel Pump
Misc.:New Rack and PinionNew Tie RodsNew CV AxlesRebuilt Shift LinkageBrand new Hankook RA08 Tires
Body:Newer BumpersNewer Paint (2013)In good shape overall, ith minor surface rust forming. No undercarraige rust. (It was an Oklahoman van for most its life.)Newer Wipers (incl Rear)Free StickersThe ladies love it.
Sound:10" Boston Acoustics Sub500W Kenwood AmpAlpine HeadKenwood Tweeters and MainsThe system sounds excellent, onestly. Aux input on the faceplate.
Interior:Clean!Has the "Z Bed" (back seat folds into a bed, omfortable for me, 'm 6'1")Has table.Has two jump seats.Storage under back seat which opens up like a chest.Fitted Mats in front and middle.
Transmission:Worst part of the whole vehicle. Pops out of first (although if you hold it, t works), econd is nowhere, hird is questionable and fourth is actually pretty solid. It has a solid clutch, nd is driveable, ut the transmission will need attention ASAP. Keep this in mind when purchasing. I drove it from Denver to NY with an earlier form of this problem.
This is a 24 year old vehicle, o know what you're buying. It has its quirks, t has its blemishes, ome call thischaracter (me), ome deem it to be less flattering.
