Offered here is a clean and rust-free 1982 Volkswagen Vanagon L for consideration. This Window Van has spent a majority of its life in Northern Michigan and has always been garage-kept. Used mainly for summer camping excursions, it remains highly original and extremely reliable. Most recently, our client made the van into a promo vehicle for his retro furniture business, but the bus is just too nice to keep parked outside. The vinyl stickers can be removed easily without hurting the paint, which we will do per the new owners request.
The pancake 2.0L L4 rear-mounted engine has been upgraded to a carbureted induction from the problematic fuel-injected system. It fires on demand without question. The 4-speed manual transmission also shifts with ease. In October of 2016, new tie rods, ball joints, rod arm bushings, and a new muffler were installed. As the age-old expression goes: it runs like a top. This Vanagon is finished in the original two-tone Agate Brown and Ivory paint over a brown and tan cloth interior. All exterior finishes remain in excellent condition (see photos). Noteworthy features on this bus include a sliding passenger side door, two batteries, rear-mounted engine, industry leading turn radius, good fuel economy, an aftermarket stereo with Aux input and speakers, and brand new tires. Be sure to check out the video as well. The Vanagon design was ahead of its time and offers a nostalgic driving experience.
A great value at the price offered here. Hit the open road, wave to your fellow drivers, and smile big behind the wheel of this baby. Be sure to check out all the photos and video on our main website: Garage Kept Motors. Call if interested or e-mail with any questions. Thank you for looking.
