Description

Chassis No. WV2ZB0259EH076658

Volkswagen has a rich history of producing vans that can be easily configured to meet the needs of those who require space, utility, and style. It was no surprise when they teamed up with Westfalia to create a camper version of their Vanagon. The original Westfalia transformed the Vanagon into a camper by adding a raisable roof, which allowed travelers to take their homes with them almost anywhere they went. The Westfalia has gained a loyal following of enthusiasts who love to restore and modify them with modern amenities, and the current owner of this 1984 Westfalia has done just that.

In late 2014, this Volkswagen was sent to GoWesty of Los Osos, California, for a complete restoration. Beginning with the mechanicals, by far the most significant improvement to its usability is the installation of GoWesty's 2,700 cc "Waterboxer" engine that provides 80 percent more performance than the original, rated at 162 horsepower and 197 ft-lbs of torque. This increased performance had a cascading effect through the rest of the mechanical aspects as the transmission was upgraded with a locking differential. New bushings, shocks, and progressive rate springs renewed the suspension. New front spindles were installed to accommodate the bigger front brakes needed to quell the newfound power.

Finished in eye-catching Sage Green, the body was stripped to a bare shell before it was refinished in its current livery with black textured paint on the lower portion. The interior was restored with vibrant green plaid fabric on the seating surfaces and door panels, a perfect complement to the green exterior. When parked, the roof can be raised, allowing for full enjoyment of the interior amenities. The kitchenette has been restored with a two-burner gas stove, a sink with a 13 gallon water capacity, and an Engel combination refrigerator/freezer. The center row of seats can be removed for more space on the side and also serves as the ideal place to sit with the side-mounted awning extended.

Having only covered approximately 600 miles since the completion of its restoration, this 1984 Volkswagen Vanagon "GoWesty" Westfalia remains in fantastic condition. With the perfect blend of classic design, modern features, and functionality, it is sure to attract tremendous attention, whether on the highway, byroad, or at the campsite!
