A good, solid driver. A CA Vanagon since day one.
My kids and I cruise to the beach almost daily in our van, and they LOVE it. Gobs of room for beach stuff, boards, camping stuff, passengers, you name it.
Minimal rust, no accidents. 228K miles. Registered through July 2020. Smog certificate in hand.
Manual transmission. Drives very well. Cruises easily on the freeway. Newer battery and approx. 5K miles on a rebuilt motor. Hankook R80s all the way around with good tread.
Exterior paint is "meh", it could use a good polish. Still, I get compliments on her almost every day. Interior just needs a good cleaning and some cosmetic touches. There are two small patches of surface rust - nothing major at all.
It could use a radio, the doors keyed (the key was lost), and older window tinting refreshed.
Overall, if you want a solid blank-canvas Vanagon to make your own, this is it.
