FOR SALE: VW Combi Westfalia 1992, Watercooled, Mexico City

We are sadly selling our Mexican 1992 VW Combi, modified by a mexican company (Alzaga Campers) that already disappeared, with Westfalia furnitures.
We have the original title and everything is paid and into our name. We are the 4th owner, previous owners were all teachers of the German School of Puebla (very good maintenance). Insurance 'till end of February 2015.
Since we bought it 15 months ago (the plan was to drive down till Argentina)  we have done the following:

-Motor is original, 1800 watercooled. It has 10K Km since restoration (went to machine shop, new rings, new metals, new seals). Works nicely and very quitely too. 10-12L/100Km. No computer. Very Reliable. Easy and cheap to fix.
-Original Bocar carburator. 2 throats.
-New radiator. New windshield. Disc brakes and drum brakes redone. New shock absorvers.
-80w panel, 15 Amp controller (allows to conect another 80w panel) and second battery instalation. 2nd battery will charge also by runing the motor but disconnect from the main one through a relay system.
-Inox kitchen and stove. German gas tank (5.5Kg) with american adapter to refill.
-30l water tank with its water pump.
-500w inverter, 12v-110v, Jeep.
-Led lights inside.
-2 BFGoodrich Long Trail tires with less than 10k Km. The ones in the front are BFGoodrich too but will need to be replaced soon.
-Mosquito nets in back and side door.
-Many storage space in the different closets. Foldable table to be used outside.
-150cm x 195cm bed down and 115cm x 190 cm bed in the roof.
-Big, 1" PTR basquet to be attached in the back. With plate and brakes lights. Easy to remove by one single person. Perfect for the spare tire (included), a 5 gallon gas-tank/jerry can, a cooler (I used to bring a 102L one), a shadow...
-Alarm and T-Block system for the gear stick.


I may forgive some extras. I can also send more pictures.
The reason to sell it is that we are going to have a baby and the Combi is too small for us to travel and live in it with all our stuff (we're artisans and travel all the time). We would TRADE it for a MB Sprinter, 140WB and tall, or similar (I know is not the same but I really need space!) or something 4x4! We could always negotiate.
The Combi has done this year Veracruz-San Diego through the Baja and back to Querétaro through mainland (6-7K Km). Only thing put in it: gas, a little oil and air in the tires.
When I bought it I decided to rebuild the motor in order to travel long and safe with it. But plans changed and now we sadly need to say goodbye to our beloved combi.

Price is 12,000 Usd obo.
