For personal reasons, Jorge decided he needed to sell it. So, we bought it back, and sold it to Andrew. For details on that sale, click here.

The total out the door price he paid came to $54,434.54. Here is what he got:

GoWesty style detail, inside and out
New windshield and seal
Fresh oil and filter
2-year service: brake fluid and coolant flushed
Espar gasoline furnace installed
Fiamma F45, 10' awning, installed
Additional body mounted swing away carrier on the right side
Updated GoWesty rear bumper with integral hitch
GoWesty progressive suspension springs
Shipping to his front door in Oregon

Andrew had a blast with this puppy—and he took GREAT care of this Syncro. There were no repairs needed at all.

We purchased this Westy back from Andrew for $40,000, and we are marking that up only 10%. On top of that is the cost to ship it here, and the cost to do the following:

Thorough detail inside and out
Gray leather front door panels to match the Recaro front seats
Sound deadening added while panels were off
Upgraded front speakers—separate mid-range and tweeter
Power window switches moved to dashboard
Major service—all maintenance back to zero miles
Tire rotation and alignment
Auxiliary battery system to current state of the art
AC service—blowing cold, but... don't get too excited!

She is basically as good as new and costs about $25,000 less than it would cost to build the same vehicle today. And, it has only about 18k miles since we built it!

Ready for a new home!

Price listed above DOES NOT  include tax, license, and/or shipping from GoWesty, as applicable.
