1984 Vanagon Westfalia Subaru Conversion and Upgrades
Consignment Van "Trigger" $52,000
Trigger is on Consignment Agreement with Westy World. Owner has approved a viewing of the full Pre-Sale Inspection Report for any serious buyers. Owner approved all mechanical recommended repairs to ensure new buyer could turn the key and go.
Trigger was originally purchased and delivered to the previous owner at the Westfalia factory in Westfalia Germany. It was common then for car buyers to take delivery of a new US specified car at the factory in Europe and travel in it with return shipping to home as a promotional package. The previous owner of Trigger and his retired friends bought several 1984 Westfalia vans together and toured Europe for 6 months. They were white with a red and blue stripe on the van sides representing USA, the van’s final home destination. (Download the History File below to read more about Triggers story.)
