Birkenstocks and Bondo: 1993 Volkswagen Eurovan

The T4 generation of Volkswagen’s infamous Transporter was sold in the USA from 1990 through 2003 as the “Eurovan”. For whatever reason, the same barbaric price increases that have plagued the market for the OG rear-engine Transporter has also hit the late model Eurovan market and the perky little cheap vans have now become stupidly expensive little cheap vans. Today’s next example is priced like it is 1999, and it probably has something to do with the mountain of bondo used to fix the driver’s side as it appears otherwise ready to give you the urban hipster street cred you’ve been looking for to go with your ironic moustache and sandal tan. Find this 1993 Volkswagen Eurovan offered for $4000 in Aptos, CA via craigslist.

The car holds a salvage title because it was involved in an accident a few years ago. The dents have been fixed by myself – with a lot of Bondo. There are other cosmetic flaws on the inside but nothing that would interfere with its driving capabilities. Please see pictures for more details.
