This Wolfsburg is absolutely immaculate and no expense was spared in ensuring a full restoration. We started with a rust free body. fixed any small dents. and repainted to "factory condition" to ensure a glossy shine. It is difficult to find a restored Wolfsburg because it is a lot of extra labor and material expense to perform the factory two tone paint job. In fact. I have yet to see a properly restored Wolfsburg on eBay (besides this one. of course)! We then replaced many of the components with brand new parts from GoWesty and other suppliers including a brand new pop top canvas. chrome bumpers. bumper end caps. hub caps. bumper impact strips. seals. antenna. mirrors. light housings. vents. wiper blades. and so much more (for a full list of replaced parts scroll down). We left the original Wolfsburg emblems on (even though they are a bit worn to say the least). because they are nearly impossible to find and we felt it showed the vehicles heritage and "antiqueness". All in all. we spent an estimated $3. 00 to $4. 00 in exterior parts and restoration materials with receipts to prove it. and this estimate excludes labor.  
We also cleaned out the interior and added an aftermarket CD player. $250 Lloyd Rubbertite mats throughout. a matching dash cover. and repainted and restored any old or worn looking parts such as handles. Overall. the interior is probably a 8/10 for its age with a few minor imperfections such as small scratches in the dash paint. cracks in the dashboard. and a tear in the drivers seat. The backseat looks like it was never sat in. All interior components such as various switches. stove. speakers. and lights appear to be working and functioning correctly.  
This beautiful Wolfsburg was a special edition Vanagon that was the very first Westy to offer air conditioning. Trust me. on a hot summer day you'll be happy you chose a Wolfsburg edition! In addition to the countless cosmetic repairs and components that were replaced. we performed a thorough inspection of the mechanics of the vehicle to ensure a reliable worry-free ride. We performed a tune up. oil change. coolant flush and fill. wheel alignment. fixed an idling issue. (I have the original heads if you'd like to see them). and fixed a few small odds and ends to get it running like new. The engine was also rebuilt by the previous owner. who gave us the original heads and parts in a separate box. We inspected his work and took it for several test trips and it seems to be running very well. The engine has a solid. steady idle and plenty of power to ensure an enjoyable ride on any fun filled trip! We also replaced the shifter guide bushings and made some adjustments to improve the shifting pattern and eliminate slop. The vehicle also drives straight and has plenty of tread left on all four tires (we meant to take pictures of these. but the location we decided to take pictures at was a bit too muddy. oops).  
Overall. this is a very nice camper with some modern amenities that should make a great vacationing vehicle for a family or group of friends. If you have any questions concerning the vehicle. please don't hesitate to contact us via eBay and we will respond as soon as possible. Happy bidding!

Had some additional questions so I will answer them below:
How does the underbody look as far as rust and mechanics? The van was originally from Tennessee. so the underbody is rust free and the exhaust is in great condition. We checked the brakes and they plenty of life left. and are functioning properly. All suspension and steering components appear good. with the exception of the ball joints which have broken boots but appear to still be functioning correctly.  
Do the appliances such as stove. sink. and refrigerator function correctly? Yes. everything is working.
How long has van been driven since rebuild? Can you tell me more about the rebuild? Maybe 100-200 miles. Previous owner rebuilt it while attempting to restore and then when his buddy passed away lost interest as they were working on it together. I have no documentation of the rebuild to prove it. but the owner did give me what appears to be the original heads in a separate box as they were replaced. Engine appears to be idling and running just fine.  
Is factory A/C blowing cold? Front vent fan working? Yes and Yes.
Just wondering if you could tell me roughly what kind of gas mileage to expect? Roughly 16-20mpg. Depends on driving habits and ratio of city/highway driving.
Does the skylight or windows leak? I'm not aware of any leaks. Seal for the skylight was replaced. and new seals were put on the front windows. All other seals on rear windows looked new so they were not replaced.
