‘87 2.1 Volkswagon Wolfsburg Weekender PopTop Tent bus/Camper Wasserboxer, 4 spd. VW (no kitchen or 40 yr old parts to break - lots of interior room) $12,000 Or Best Offer. DO NOT CONTACT/TEXT WITH SCAM TITLE REQUESTS THEY WILL BE REPORTED TO THE FBI
Sleeps 4 when new tent s installed - included. No Central Fla. (Photos displaying ramp, gear bag and tent info are approx 5yrs old.) Brand new rebuilt engine, new Clutch excellent mechanical shape (see below)
First powerful radiator cooled engine - every yer prior to 87 is an underpowered, air cooled engine.

Clean title, I am 2nd owner since new. Very good mechanical shape, new engine rebuild this year at only 160,000 miles. Very quiet soft ride. A bit of a project van, but fully useable as camper. Upper bunk best for sleeping with tent.
The body is rough (full maint repair). Lower the bench, add a tarp and you have the best, waterproof p/up truck.
The Pax side rear wheel panel has the known weld rust issue which should be replaced.
The sliding door works fine but was bumped in a mall parking lot. All of it doable. I have a new tent to be installed. Add affordable paint job and you can see she is beautiful.

This van is adventure ready. Install the tent still beautiful with far more power than any van built before 87.

Important Mechanically : w/in last 2000 miles or 4mos. I have receipts for work done.
New rebuild gaskets wet& dry, hoses, all in very goood shape.
New Clutch
Incredible soft ride on 4 Bilstein/Mercedes shocks
New 2 batteries
New radiator/tanks hoses (less than 2000 miles)
New rebuilt steering rack (comes with obligatory sqeaky pwr steering new hose)
New Hydraulic pump, rear brakes,
New tires
Other items: extended gear shifter, new fuel tank with new sender.
Added swivel to front pax seat, Kayak rack, flip desk on front dash, aux led lights for interior. Hyd lifts for rear hatch and PopTop lifting (see pic below). Also flip down shelf to inside of PopTop, extra brake light and peace symbol to front grill. I will include leveling ramps, wxproof gear bag/w net, detachable awning, GW rainfly for pop top, wrap around cover for front/ pax windows.
For a 40 yr old vehicle she is in great shape.
I hate to part with this vehicle but have spent 5+ figures to keep her on the road. if you are buying this, you know what it is worth. Text or Leave message. Asking $12,000.
