If you are searching for a Westfalia and aren't sure which one to choose, search no further. This vehicle has been meticulously maintained with no expense spared. If you are familiar with VW mechanics in Southern California you will know that Cory Motors is on the top of the list, and they have almost exclusively done all the work on this vehicle. Every single maintenance receipt from the time of purchase has been saved and stowed in a folder that is over an inch thick.
The van was purchased by a close family friend who then sold it to my parents, who drove it for a while, and then sold it to another close family friend. I have a complete Carfax report I can send if desired that details this ownership further.
On the Carfax it also says it has been in an accident. A school bus mirror collided with the mirror of the van when it was parked, cracking the glass. Because a school bus was involved it had to be reported as a registered accident. I have proof of the "accident" in paperwork.
Recent work done in the last 10k miles:
Major Engine Overhaul: $3,927.57
New Transmission CV Joints and Boots, Major Engine Seals Replaced: $7,103.85
Brand New AC System Installed: $1,372.20
Alternator Replaced: $606.00
Brand New Tires & Alignment: $667.00
New Windshield and Seal: $326.85
I am happy to provide the folder of maintenance paperwork upon viewing of the vehicle.
The interior is in amazing condition. The foldout bed and pop top function properly. There are no tears in upholstery or pop top fabric anywhere in the van. It also has all the factory window curtains.
The exterior is in great condition with only minor scuffs that are expected out of a 18 year old car. There is absolutely zero rust.
This van has been completely gone through and re-done mechanically, as the $14k+ of work shows above. It is ready for another 150,000 miles of strong running.
No low ball offers, please. I have bought and sold many, many Volkswagens and know what this vehicle is worth. It comes with the back bike rack!
