1987 Volkswagen Bus/Vanagon Westfalia

This is a beautiful 1987 Westfalia Camper, ust look at those pictures. I will add more pictures in the next few days. I've done so much work to this Westfalia it's hard to figure out where to begin.This is my 72nd Westfalia and now as they get older they need so much work to get them looking nice.I have invested over $20,000 and put over 700 hours of my time into this Westfalia. Just for starters it has a rebuilt motor and a rebuilt transmission, nd of course new clutch and everything that goes with it. I put $4500 into the paint work and replaced all the window rubber and installed a new windshield. I had the bumpers rechromed instead of buying new ones, think the chrome is better they look much nicer. I also installed new bumper ends all the way around. I took the headlights out and cleaned the inside, ee how clean they look. I refinished both front grills and they came out very nice. I replaced the pop top with a new three window canvas, nd while I had the top off I cleaned the inside headliner part with soap and bleach three times to remove all dirt and mold that accumulates over the years, his process takes all week to get done, ut just look at it now, antastic. And of course new Westfalia decals at both ends. New tires, rakes and original wheels polished out and windows painted silver, ust how I like them and all wheel wells blacked out. All of the door handles have been redone and new rubber installed. All wipers have been redone and new wiper blades. The hookups, tove vent, ail lights, nd front turn signals have be reworked and replaced with stainless steel screws. The front door glass has new rubber all around so the glass doesn't flop back and forth and is nice and tight. So much more has been done on the exterior but I need to go inside now. I removed all the seats and carpet and detailed out the inside. I cleaned all of the panels, efinished inside of all the cabinets and cleaned out all off the accumulated dirt. I had the face of the stove sand blasted and refinished and replaced all of the decals. Look at the rear folding seat, ee how clean it is. I removed all of the upholstery from the seats, ear cushion, nd the beds up top and washed them over and over until they were clean inside and out, his took a long time to get done because you have to take out about a thousand staples on the rear folding seat, ut now you can put your face down on the bed and it smells nice and fresh. If you try to clean these cushions in place you are just stirring around 25 years of dirt and they only look half ass clean and the material is stiff and they smell. Mine are soft and smooth and smell fresh. The front carpet is new from Sewfine Interior products, still have to glue some of it down and put in the new floor mats. I still have about another 50 hours of work to get done. In the back area I always install commercial grade carpet because of all the traffic it takes. This is top of the line carpet and can really take a beating. All of the curtains were removed, ashed and replaced and smell great. I did a super duper detailed on the inside which took around 5 days. I cleaned and glued down things that were coming loose, epainted pieces, leaned ashtrays, anels, ents, teering wheel, isassembled instrument cluster and cleaned the inside face, eworked the glovebox and replaced the vinyl piece on the bottom so it looks new inside. I had the table stand sand blasted and refinished, efinished all the storage areas to like new. Put a new vent skylight in. I paint all the seat bases, emoved and cleaned all the seatbelts by soaking them in soapy water, an those things get dirty. I fixed and cleaned the map pocket to look like new. There is so much more, just keep going and going, like to get everything in order. I will add more to the description and post more pictures in the next few days. This is just the start because I wanted to get this Westfalia listed for sale. Also, n my opinion I think the 1987 is the best, nd will be the most collectible year because it's the first year with the newer style gray interior, ut still has the more classic exterior with the chrome bumpers. Another thing that might be a concern to you is the mileage 280,000. Don't let this bother you, ust ask the guys at Gowesty. When you are dealing with vehicles of this age, lmost 30 years old, ou buy off of condition not mileage. Like an old bug or Corvette, t's the condition, ondition, ondition. And if you believe that so many of the Westfalia's for sale really have that low of miles, have a bridge for sale you may want to buy. To many 30 year old vans with low miles.
I'm listing this for sale at $37,500 because of the condition.If you think that's expensive check GoWesty.comIf you have ever built your own car you know how much time and money it takes. I'm good at this and I'm in this Westfalia over $20,000 and 700 hours.If you have questions please call me at 619 925-3174 emailing back and forth is hassle.
