This is Jared and Marilyn. They came all the way from Iowa to pick up the sweet Westy. They were here once before about two years ago on a vacation, and spotted a super nice Westy in a parking lot nearby. They waited until the owners came out from shopping and asked them about their Westy. These folks were, of course, GoWesty customers, and they proceeded to tell Jared and Marilyn all about us. Two years later, they finally got their dream Westy! Total out the door price: $44,771.30, including all of the above stuff we had already planned above, plus this stuff added by Jared and Marilyn:
GoWesty 2400cc instead of 2200 engine
Re-geared 4-speed for 2400cc engine
South African big brakes up front
Partial GoWesty pre-runner treatment:
-black texture coating all around bottom
-Torque biasing posi-traction differential
-GoWesty steel bumpers front and rear
Fiamma F45 awning
Nice floor mats throughout
Pioneer in-dash cassette player
Pioneer 12-disc CD changer
AUL "RESERVE" extended warranty
And that AUL warranty came in handy about two weeks after they picked up their vehicle! A small, but somewhat expensive component of the AC system failed. We have only had to replace the AC thermostat on two other occasions. It was a nearly $500 repair, all paid for 100% by AUL! That was a nice buy...
Happy trails, you two! Have a blast!
