Forum rules
FOR CAR ADS :

Please limit five images per ad. A good mix is best, a 3/4 shot from the drivers side front, a 3/4 shot of the passenger side rear, an interior shot, a shot under front hood, and one of the engine. Please list any major work recently done [ie: engine or transmission replacement]. Tune-up's, brake jobs, or new tires are not considered "major work." Also please disclose any significant issues [ie: rust or loud knocking sounds].

We recommend that you shoot as many pictures as you can in a well lit area. Please show details of any problems. You can supply all these images to any of the potential buyers so they know what they are getting into [both good and bad] before going much further.

FOR PARTS ADS:

Again, limit the photos to five per ad. List years the parts fit, part number if you have it, condition of the part [ie: the windshield wiper motor works], contact info and price.

Last but not least please provide contact info [e-mail address and or phone number] and most importantly, how much you want for the car.

Glad I don't drive a Vanagon.

A little about the van,
the outside is in pretty great condition, so is the interior. The van does come with a sink, stove, and refrigerator. However, the refrigerator doesn't work and the water pump for the sink needs to be replaced. The engine temperature light and the antenna also need a replacement. We originally bought the van like that and possess all the paperwork noting all the various repairs and parts. Recently, we changed the alternator and replaced the entire cooling system as well as the headlights and the wiper blades. The van also comes with a pop top which pulls out as another bed, so ultimately it sleeps 4 comfortably. In addition, it comes with all the storage spaces you could ever need. Like most vintage VW vans, it can go up to 50 mph. It also includes two sets of custom made sheets, a chopping block/ mini writing block, a cover for weather protection/ storage and the upholstery is in perfect condition.
