Buy Classic Volks – Volkswagen Syncro Westfalia 4WD for sale at California, USA. Excellent condition. Great 1991 VW SYNCRO (4WD) 2.5 Westfalia Full Camper. We priced this after comparing the last 22 Syncro campers in past 6 years by GoWesty, looking at mileage, condition, upgrades & restorations on all 22 & ours. This price is quite fair, considering everything almost all the others don’t have. This is our first VW Westy camper, bought from 2nd owner-a private party 1/’06. Finally the configuration’s exactly as we want, but then hurt my knee & shoulder causing pain getting in & out w/2” lift kit. Almost all of very significant upgrades, restoration & repairs were done by the GoWesty experts, & it has always been garaged. YOU MUST SEE!
