 Selling A piece of Living History

It's time to part with my beloved '86 VW Westfalia. Luna. This is an incredibly well traveled vehicle having toured four continents (Europe. for direct purchase. nbsp; Asia. nbsp; North Africa. and now North America including all over the US. Canada. and Mexico. I'd prefer to keep it in the family but it's time to find a new home for this incredible machine.

Is it perfect? No.
Is it solid as a rock and battle tested? Yes.
Will I keep answering my own questions? Thankfully. No.

So much has gone into this vehicle I'm not sure we can fit it all in but here goes.

Exterior.
Windows out paint job in '08 with all new seals.
No flop GoWesty side rear view mirrors.
Custom powder coated tube steel rear bumper with 2" receiver hitch (only ever carried bikes).
GoWesty wide swipe windshield wipers.
GoWesty high intensity headlight upgrade.
Custom shovel rack on front bumper (very handy).
2" receiver hitch custom welded to front bumper (for another 1UpUSA bike rack; this puppy can haul up to 6 bikes!)
Recent body work to correct chronic Westy rot (rust) under utility ports.
Fresh rocker panel undercoat.

Underneath.
New propane tank and regulator and line to stove.
New Gas Tank
16" South African rims with 5k miles on super heavy duty Nordstrom tires with tamper proof lugs.
Big Audi front brakes (stops great which is good cause it can get heavy and go fast).
Brake rotors recently replaced.
Blistein shocks.
Automatic transmission cooler.
No major rust down under (foot wells have a few small spots that need attention).
Gary Lee rear hatch ladder.
Custom installed Yakima High Tower roof rack (with galvanized plate steel gusset reinforcing).
GoWesty window rain guard (essential for hot rainy days).


Interior.
Sew Fine interior redo. There is a tear in the rear bench seat cover.
Custom leather steering wheel cover.
Pioneer stereo/MP3 player with four Infinity speakers (it can get loud)
Fully functioning two burner stove and sink.
Refrigerator has been removed (we just use coolers).
Custom window tinting all around (no need for curtains).
GoWesty front privacy screen with window screens.
Rear hatch screen.
Map light.
New water tank lines (the old ones were pretty nasty).
Auxillary battery under bench with 2 A wire (overkill perhaps).
New-ish three window pop top tent.
Front GoWesty bra (not shown).
South African mud flaps (one is missing. last seen in the Yucantan).

Engine.
2. 5 liter Subaru conversion by East Coat Vanagon using Kennedy Engineering parts.
Runs strong and clean and will flat out level a mountain.
New-ish starter. cooling system hoses. rear heater core.

There are no engine or transmission leaks. The radiator is fairly new. doesn't leak and has never overheated.

The Full Disclosure Section.
This vehicle is strong and tight but there are some issues as to be expected of a vehicle of this vintage.
There is a dime sized rust spot on the rear hatch.
The foot wells have some small rust spots (a pretty easy fix as they are covered by the rubber grippers and the finish doesn't matter. )
The skylight leaks (I think they all do). A new GoWesty skylight seal is included but not installed.
Perhaps as a result of the previous issue. the velour on the underside of the pop top is splotchy and stained; a messy job I just haven't gotten to.
The refrigerator opening needs some attention as I got rid of the TruckFrigde; it was too noisy and sucked the auxilliary battery dry).
She might need a front right bushing soon as there is a squeak coming from that general vicinity.
The headlight adjusters are cracked and need replacing; these have been on back-order from GoWesty for ages.

This is much loved and well cared for vehicle; treat it right and it will bring you and your friends and family years of enjoyment; it sure has done that for me. The design of these vehicles is truly remarkable as you can fly down the highway. sneak down tight trails. haul materials on top or inside. carry bikes and boats and dogs and gear. and still slip into a grocery store parking spot without a problem (besides sleep and eat and change in it). This one drives and stops great and is a blast to drive.

Hopefully someone out there gets the special-ness I'm trying to describe and will keep Luna on the road. having new adventures and making people smile.

Sold as is. all equipment and accoutremounts included (except the bike rack); just bring your clothes and your cooler and hit the road.
