It is time to let go of my 1985 Volkswagen Westfalia. I purchased it from the original owner/family. I have done alot of work to make it road trip ready with my wife and 6 year old. We recently went to the east coast and back with no issues. The engine runs great, doesn't burn oil or leak. The manual transmission shifts like new. It has 153k on it and the odometer and speedometer still work. The AC works fine and has had alot of work done. I have made several upgrades over stock. I have also added AC to use at the campground with a panel that mounts in the passenger window. The Ac unit is 12k btu and 8k btu heat, both work good. Its sleeps 2 above and 2 below. This vanagon drives great, and will go 65-70 all day long. So before anybody asks,  yes it will drive home. It has been a fun vanagon and gets lots of looks and compliments. Even though its not perfect cosmetically it is clean. I will list the work done below. All parts listed as replaced have been done in the last year and 2,500 miles.

Engine- original 1.9l runs great, heads resealed by previous owner. In the last year parts replaced: plugs,wires,cap, rotor, rebuilt throttle body by rocky jennings, intake manifold and plenum  painted w/por 15 and new gaskets, fuel injector seals, all fuel lines and clamps, removed and painted and installed new grommets/gaskets/lines on fuel tank, idle control unit, oxygen sensor, fuel filter, muffler and tail pipe, just changed the oil w/ mobil one synthetic.

Transmission- greased all bushings, changed gear oil w/ proper brad penn oil, new slave cylinder. added shifter extension, quiet, shifts smooth.

lights/electrical- lights work, wipers and washer work, signals work but for some reason the rt. blinkers don't flash when the headlights are on.

interior- new north westy tent this spring, sunbrella material color taupe, 3 windows, cd player 4 new speakers, new german waeco 12v fridge, works great, runs quiet,  keeps popsicles frozen, works 30 degrees out of level-made for boats, keeps 2 half gallon containers in door, made custom panel and door below for more storage, supposed to run for 3 1/2 days on battery.  new agm deep cycle battery under rear seat, power max charger, blue sea fuse panel under sink, yandina combiner/separator, so it charges off alternator, also won't kill the starting battery sink works great w/ electric pump, extra 12v added in cabinet near rear seat for my daughter to watch movies, 4 point harness added for children safety, previous owner had a cb radio at one time so there is a block off plate added in dash and extra ant. on passenger side,

AC- removed and resealed ac unit, new expansion valve, drier, high pressure line, resealed compressor, new ac/fan switch, filled w/ redtek, 12v fan added to help get air to the front, can also be used to cirulate at night.

Wheels/suspension- Mercedes clk wheels w/aluminum Wolfsburg caps, new Pirelli extra load tires, new front an rear shocks, new upper ball joints, 12 mm spacers, new lug nuts, bolts, studs, new power steering rack and tie rods installed a couple of years ago by previous owner, new rear wheel cylinders and all soft brake lines, drives and handles tight. 

Body/paint- wild 80's graffics and repaint which is not that great of quality, It hasn't bothered me since it is used for camping and I won't shed a tear if it gets scratched. It has its share of nicks, scratches, filler, filler in the front right and passenger door, pass. door has to be slammed shut, filler in rt rear, another spot in the left rear from previous owner's neighbor backing into it. The filler is from dents/damage, the chassis is solid and not rusty,no major rust, some small spots at some seams all areas pictured, I sprayed brown paint of spots so they won't stand out as much-pictured as well

parts removed- I removed the propane tank, it is included if requested. It will need painted and the valve updated. The original fridge is included if requested, it is like new but these fridges are small and don't work that well, I also have the original panel. The stove is there, I was going to add an adapter to run 1 lb propane tanks but never did,always used a Coleman stove 

I have a 1980 westfalia for parts for an additional $500 if the buyer wants it.

I can assist with delivery after payment if I can haul it to and from in a day for the expense of fuel.

I may add more, I have retyped this 4 times and stuff disappears.I will add Saturday and take pics of the portable ac unit. 

Shipping is up to the buyer. It can be stored here no problem. If you are from europe you will have to get your own shipping quotes. You can call during the day at 615-604-2567. I have a clean title in my name.

On Aug-31-13 at 07:02:01 PDT, seller added the following information:

temp II sensor, temp gauge sensor, intake boots were replaced on the engine as well, picture added of AC unit. I have spent several thousand dollars in maintenance and upgrades.

Volkswagen iBeetle gets integrated iPhone dock, little else

Fri, 19 Apr 2013 09:30:00 EST

Apple fans have been itching to see the tech giant flex the full muscle of its iOS operating system in an automotive infotainment system for years, which is why we turned all sorts of excited when we caught wind of the Volkswagen iBeetle. The machine is headed to the Shanghai Motor Show for a debut, and VW promised it would be one of the "first cars in the world to have a genuine integrative interface for the iPhone that was coordinated with Apple." Listen closely, and you can hear the contented sigh of a million wallets opening.
Go ahead and close those up, kids.
In reality, the iBeetle offers little more than a dash-mounted dock and a special app that shows a few vehicle functions, which is about as far from an infotainment revolution as you're likely to find. In fact, the setup is little more than a factory rehash of aftermarket items, and hardly worth a whole model debut at an international motor show. And that's to say nothing of the fact that Apple relishes in changing the shape and form of its darling handheld at every generation. Volkswagen better be prepared to keep pace with appropriate docking mechanisms for the upcoming iPhone 5S, 6, 6S, et al.

VW says it has sold over 100,000 TDI diesels in America this year

Thu, 26 Dec 2013 09:01:00 EST

Volkswagen Group of America has lit oil-burning fireworks to celebrate the sales of more than 100,000 TDI Clean Diesel vehicles in the US between its VW and Audi brands this year. According to VW, that means it is responsible for more than 75 percent of diesel-engined cars and SUVs sold here - perhaps not surprising when the two brands offer a total of 12 diesel models.
What might be surprising is that the number of diesels isn't far off the estimated sales of 90,000 battery electric vehicles and PHEVs, with 15,000 of those accounted for by the Tesla Model S, another 12,000 or so being the Toyota Prius PHEV.
VW's keen to play up the ease of making diesel part of your life, stressing that it doesn't need any change to the refueling infrastructure and that "this is a technology delivering real answers to society's concerns about fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions without compromises."

2013 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo Convertible

Wed, 10 Apr 2013 11:57:00 EST

Less Flower, More Power
Pardon our political incorrectness for a moment, but the Volkswagen New Beetle was, undeniably, a "chick car." There was almost nothing that the New Beetle offered to enthusiasts (of either gender), and by the end of its run, VW had even stripped all of the exciting engines from the car's lineup. Looking to resurrect some of the excitement behind the Beetle, the third generation of the iconic car ditched the cuteness when the coupe debuted for 2012, and now the 2013 Volkswagen Beetle Convertible aims to show how much fun drivers can have without a top.
Celebrating almost six and a half decades of the Beetle convertible, Volkswagen is offering a trio of distinct special editions that celebrate three of the car's most popular decades (the '50s, '60s and '70s), but as one of the unofficial cars of the 1960s, it would almost be a crime not to test this version, right? Besides, this is also the only special edition to get the turbocharged engine. While our first drive of the 2013 Beetle Convertible was in the fuel-miser TDI variation, our two-week romp in the 2013 Beetle Convertible '60s Edition came just as peak convertible weather was kicking off down in Florida.
