Go West, Young Man! 1987 Volkswagen Westfalia

This next car comes as a tip from Scott T who writes: Have you ever wanted to pick up someone else’s project after they’ve lost interest? Do you love putting together lego sets with no instructions?  Then this is the van for you friend!  This looks like the seller methodically removed every non driveline part. It’s not blooming in New England yet, so those pics probably aren’t from this year. On the plus side, it’s a non rusty east coast westy and you don’t even have to lift a carpet to inspect it. The Go Westy bumpers the seller has are about $200 for the basic kit, but he might have the heavy duty version, which with the hitch is almost a grand in parts. Find this 1987 Volkswagen Westfalia offered for $7500 in Boston, MA via craigslist.
