You're looking at a rare, professionally restored 1984 Wolfsburg "Westy" featuring the popular 1.9L water cooled engine. 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 $3,000 to $4,000 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!

Former Porsche boss Wiedeking won't face criminal charges over VW bid

Mon, 28 Apr 2014 11:01:00 EST

Hedge fund managers have been suing Porsche for years now, alleging that the car company lied about its intentions during its failed attempt to take over Volkswagen, a gambit that caused them billion in losses. Over the same period, authorities in Stuttgart built a criminal case against former CEO Wendelin Wiedeking (above, left) and Chief Financial Officer Holger Härter (right), filing charges in December 2012. When those fund plaintiffs lost their most recent court case, one of the dimming lights in the dark and receding tunnel was that the criminal investigation might unearth more evidence about Porsche's actions that could help the plaintiffs in pending litigation.
Bloomberg reports that another light has gone out, though, with a Stuttgart court dismissing the market manipulation case before going to trial because, as a court spokesperson said, "there wasn't enough evidence backing up the charges." When prosecutors get the files back from the court, they have a week to decide to refile, but unless they've been sandbagging evidence that could bolster the case, the only lights at the end of the tunnel will be those welcoming Wiedeking and Härter back to the world of legally unencumbered men.

Volkswagen New Midsize Coupe Concept is an aspirational Jetta

Mon, 21 Apr 2014 13:00:00 EST

Meet the Volkswagen baby CC. Okay, that's not really it's name (VW calls it the New Midsize Coupe Concept), but this sleek, four-door coupe draws more than a little inspiration from the CC while riding on VW's MQB platform.
It's a looker, we think, and is an eye-pleasing departure from the bland styling of the current Jetta. The sleeker front end is complemented by a wider body overall (it's wider than a Passat), while the more sporting roofline and the sharp rear fascia gives the New Midsize Coupe a decidedly sporting character. LED head- and taillights add a bit more personality to this already stylish design.
Thanks to its 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder, it should get along rather sportingly, as well. The run to 62 miles per hour takes just 6.5 seconds thanks to the 217 horsepower on offer. A seven-speed dual-clutch automatic is also fitted, and contributes to an estimated 37 miles per gallon.

Volkswagen Golf Variant Concept R-Line puts the sport in SportWagen

Wed, 06 Mar 2013 07:31:00 EST

With the introduction of the newest Volkswagen Golf Variant, we get an early look at what will most likely be the next-generation Jetta SportWagen here in the US. To further wet our appetities, VW is now teasing something a little sportier with the Concept R-Line. Looking the part of a GTI wagon (or a stretched Golf R), the Golf Variant Concept R-Line has a production-ready appearance that has us hoping we'll see this sporty wagon sooner rather than later.
The R-Line starts off with a new fascia that isn't quite as aggressive as the recently introduced GTI, but it gives the new styling some extra punch. Below the fascia is a lower splitter that visually carries back into the rocker panel extensions, and the rear of the car gets some bright exhaust tips and a rear diffuser. The Lapis Blue Metallic paint job probably does enough on its own to add a sporty flair to the Golf wagon, and it's all finished off with 18-inch split-spoke wheels. Inside, the Concept R-Line shows off sport seats wrapped in carbon leather featuring blue nappa inserts in the middle.
Rightfully so, VW brought the Concept R-Line to Geneva with its TDI and 4Motion all-wheel-drive system. A sporty, all-wheel-drive diesel wagon? Yes, please. Scroll down for the full press blast with all the details.
