Go Westy had the van for four months in the winter/spring, and did the following work:

Body / Interior / Pop Top:

  • A complete windows out paint job with three coats of clear was done last winter, painted in VW Vanagon brown on bottom and VW pearl green metallic on top. A heavy protective black bed liner coating was applied all around at bumper level and into the foot wells up front. Newer rear windows were installed with flow through ventilation ducting. All new rubber on all windows installed. Body is rust free.

  • The brown interior is in excellent condition throughout.
  • New acrylic tan 3-window pop-top tent installed

  • Underside of van thoroughly inspected for safety and everything checked out for safety and function.

  • Two German 12 volt power outlets installed in dash

  • High power dual reverse lights now have a toggle kill switch to keep from blinding people behind the van when these auxiliary back up lights are not needed.

Brakes / Wheels / Tires:

  • Front brake rotors to big brake kit were lightly machined, post bread in period

There were numerous other details done, too many to list here. I have all receipts since I bought the van.

Go Westy took this van to Baja during the making of the BUS movie, and it is included in the film.

I have invested over $60k in this great vehicle.

This van has been a joy to own and drive, since I originally purchased it 5 years ago. I have other projects going, and it is time to pass it on to its new owner.

I am asking $54K for the van, or best reasonable offer. Check around, and you will see this van is priced very fairly.
