Description

Introduced in August of 1979 and produced until June of 2003 (only in the South African market, worldwide production of both the Transporter and the Syncro ceased in 1992), the Volkswagen Transporter, also known as the Type 2 (T3) and better known as the Vanagon here in North America, was used worldwide for many different applications, from personal to commercial and even some military use. This was the final vehicle Volkswagen produced utilizing a rear engine design.

This particular example is finished in a lovely Medium Blue paint. The paint overall is in very good condition, it still has a shine and while it does have some minor scratches, it presents exceptionally well for the age and type of vehicle it is. The paint in the bed of the truck is in fantastic shape as well, with only minor scratches and no dents or dings noticeable. There is a rather shallow dent on the storage door underneath the truck bed on the passenger side, but there is no paint damage. The exterior trim is in capable condition overall, the metal bumpers show little if any noticeable wear marks, the plastic end caps however are beginning to show their age, especially the front driver side as a small crack has developed and is pictured. The wooden strips in the truck bed are also in need of some attention, but are still capable of performing the job they are used for. The interior is in like new condition with the only modifications being an aftermarket head unit installed in the dash and speakers installed in the door cards. The interior was most certainly designed with utility in mind, but it still retains the charm that early 90's Volkswagen products are known for.

This example features a 4 Speed Manual transmission that has a “crawler” gear for getting up steep inclines. Both the engine and transmission are mechanically sound and have no issues to our knowledge. The tires are in great shape and have many miles ahead of them, the wheels have no significant blemishes and present very well. The chrome hubcaps all appear in great shape except for the passenger rear, which is dented, but will be replaced before the Transporter is sold.

This is a superb example of one of the oldest nameplates Volkswagen still produces.
