1985 Volkswagen

Vanagon GL Westfalia 4-Speed

What We Like

The Volkswagen Vanagon Westfalia has been synonymous with adventure, long road-trips, and counter culture for decades. This tidy nearly-stock, 98k-mile GL Westfalia retains its factory engine and desirable 4-speed manual transmission, along with its correct camping gear including a pop-top, folding rear bench, stove, refrigerator, dining table, sink, air conditioning unit, and much more. With many of these 1980s Westfalias having extremely high mileage or a host of questionable modifications, this relatively-untouched example is a clean slate to enjoy as-is or personalize however you wish!

Seller Information

Vehicle History & Overview

This 1985 Volkswagen Vanagon GL Westfalia was manufactured in January 1985 per its factory data sticker. According to the included clean Carfax report, this Vanagon was registered in New Hampshire in May 2006, then Maryland in January 2017 showing 98,321 miles. The selling dealer acquired the van in March 2023 and has added approximately 150 of its 98,750 miles. In August 2023, the selling dealer reportedly had this Vanagon re-sprayed to freshen up exterior cosmetics. Described as stock aside from upgraded shocks, GoWesty springs, and a Panasonic radio/cassette player, power comes from a factory water-cooled 1.9-liter flat four-cylinder engine paired with a desirable factory 4-speed manual transmission.

As a full Westfalia camper, features include a pop-up roof with sleeping area, folding rear bench seat for additional sleeping capacity, a stove with dual propane burners, refrigerator, sink, swing-out table, swiveling front seats, air conditioning, various storage areas, and more. Three keys accompany the sale.
