Here is a southern California born and raised Wolfsburg Weekender. Absolutely NO RUST AT ALL, original paint in EXCELLENT condition. The paint is NOT perfect, but it is way, way too nice to repaint. The tent is also in great shape, but is the original with only one window.
The previous owner had the black texture applied around the bottom, and had already installed a set of our plate steel bumpers and 16" tire and wheel package. It is not exactly the way we do it—he did not do the threshold areas, and extended up higher than we do on the nose panel. But it is done and looks fine.
This WB WE is a bit peculiar option-wise. It HAS power steering, power door locks, power side view mirrors, and AC. But it DOES NOT have a rear wiper! That is strange.... What is really unique about this 1986 model is that it has the later style, 87-91 type AC system. This is the first 86 WB WE I have ever seen with the later 87-91 AC system.
It has the typical 85/86 tan corduroy fabric throughout the interior which is shredded in several places—also typical. The price listed INCLUDES all new upholstery throughout. We have not done that yet, so if you want all Recaro interior instead.... now is the time to do it!
The dashboard is SUPER NICE, very atypical of a BROWN dash... This Westy has obvously been stored inside, out of the sun. The carpet is still in great shape and will clean up like new.
We purchased this vehicle from a local family for $5,000. We are marking that up 20%, so the price of this one STARTS OUT at $6,000, plus tax and license, and/or shipping as applicable. The photos are of the vehicle as it arrived. We have not done anything to it YET.
However: We will not sell it as-is. The price for this vehicle is as listed above, which INCLUDES all of the following we have NOT DONE YET:
