1982 Westfalia for sale in Quito

1982 Aircooled Volkswagon Westfalia with rebuilt engine in Quito.  We are looking to sell between now and February.  

This van served us well for over 30,000 kilometers across South America. Surprisingly no major issues along the way.  

Our goal was to drive the van to the United States, so we used Ecuador as a base to rebuild the engine and prepare for the Central American leg of our trip.  However, we were forced to call the trip short and are now selling our beloved westy.

The van was purchased in Chile and comes with a Chilian registry.  


It came without the original interior, but has the original cooking gas tank.  We replaced the interior, as you an see from the picture to make it comfortable.  This includes a nice power converter and two new batteries so you can have power throughout the night.  Also, a new two burner gas stove that runs off the external gas tank.  A new CD player with new speakers, etc.  New tires on the van about 10,000 kilometers ago and have two used spares.  


The good: The overall condition of the van is good with no rust. 

The bad: It does have a dent in the driver side door from the wind blowing it open in Patagonia.  The sliding door handle is also removed, but can be opened from the inside (a new one can be easily installed).  

Replacements: Starter, gas lines (upon purchase), break pads (upon purchase), battery, spark plugs and wires, rubber cv joint boots. Fresh engine overhaul.  

If you're looking for a good van for the Pan American this is it. It has made us westy lovers for life. 

- Sorry, for the lack of photos, as mentioned, we were not planning on selling.
