Purchased out of North Carolina last Summer by a young woman in Ithaca, NY with big dreams of long camping trips in the state parks of Upstate New York, she was unexpectedly relocated for work and cannot take the bus with her, she asked us to find it a new home.
Quick to start and strong running, this Vanagon is a nice cruiser that will need the regular, ongoing Maintenace one might expect from a 40+ year old VW. A number of new, in the package spare parts are included with the van, such as, new fuel lines and a number of other parts from GoWesty.com.
An example worthy of some love and attention while enjoying this unique example on the open road. Adventures await!
