Tim had a blast with this puppy and took really good care of it, but had to part with it for personal reasons. We bought it back from Tim, rolled up our sleeves and did the following for the second owner, John:
Thorough details inside and out
Super major GoWesty ultra major service
-All maintenance back to zero miles
Auxiliary battery updated to current state of the art
Switch from locking F/R differentials to Posi-Traction F/R and one knob
Four new tires on the ground
Space saver tire on 14" alloy wheel above skid plate
Fox shocks and state of the art suspension springs, front and rear
Full page of reliability items, including our new GW-EFI system
Complete AC system overhaul�but don't get too excited...
Total cost delivered it to John in eastern Canada was $78,176.82, click here for details on that sale. He had it for only about a year during which time he put only about 6000 miles on it. John decided a Vanagon was just not right for him--the nearest shop that could service it was hours away, and life was just too busy. So, he decided to sell it back to GoWesty.
It cost us a total of $63,135 to get it back all the way from Canada, including the importation and shipping costs. The price listed this time around includes our cost, a mark up of only 10%, $4500 for a GoWesty bumper to bumper Road Warrior warranty, and the cost to do the following:
Thorough details inside and out
Minor maintenance service
AC recharge and test
It now has only 6000 miles more than when we sold it to John, comes with a much better warranty, is about $3000 less than it cost John, and easily $30K less than it would cost to build another one just like it from scratch.
Yup, this one is a particularly good value!
Brian from Portland gave us a $5000 Dream Deposit back in August of 2014, and has been waiting patiently for the right Westy Syncro to come along, and it has! Way to hang in there, Brian!

Brian has decided on the following options:

3 window gray acrylic tent
Wasser-stopper poptop rainly
Recpver popotop interior ceiling surface
Recover headliner panel to match poptop
2 Swing away trays for the rear universal carrier system
Powder coated wheels
Replace all exterior bulbs with LEDS

More details to come soon, but for now: Congratulations to Brian!
