An Exceptionally nice Camper!!

Greetings to All!! After 23 years in business(44 years if you count when I started), I have decided to Retire!! International Motorcars of Pittsburgh LTD. will close its doors on May 31, 2016(I might be a few weeks late!), after being located in Export, Pa 15632 since June of 2005. It's been a GREAT home, and I feel quite privileged to have been a part of this fabulous community!!
Well...... May came and went, and I am still in the car biz, albeit VERY small! We are going to call this "Semi-retired(or Semi- Retarded?)!! Must be some sort of incurable disease The Export location is cleaned out, and closed. The building is empty, and is available for lease. Interested parties can E-mail me for info and details.
I've re-located to a long time friend/colleague's previous location in late June. He Sadly and unexpectedly passed away in November of 2014, and his wife was kind enough to make it available. This is a VERY small facility, so my activity is limited. The dealer license has been transferred, and I am ready to start offering those unusual finds that you all loved to see over the past 20 years. The photographs were taken at a close friends farm. I hope that you like them!
Many Many Thanks to all of my previous customers. Please keep us on your Favorites just NEVER know what will show up!!
Inspections during the auction are welcomed and Encouraged
Greetings to All!! imotors is quite pleased to offer possibly the BEST one of these available Anywhere! This is very handsome and honest Westy that we purchased at a small, independent auction. We have the original title issued in 1985, along with the original set of owners books. We have never spoken to, or met the previous owners, hence no info on service history etc. I can definitely say that this Low Mileage Vanagon is mechanically in fine condition. We have driven it a few hundred miles with absolutely no issues noted. It runs and drives 200%!! The temp gauge never toes above half, and it just purrs! The tires are good, and were last replaced in 2011.
Judging by the originality of our Westfalia, I would say that it was always garaged when it wasn't on camping trips. The paint appears to be all original, with the exception of the sliding side door below the stripe. Must have been a scrape, or a scratch!! You will note in the detailed photos below that this VW was rustproofed when new. It is evident in all of the door openings etc., and along the lower body seam, where all of these tend to rust! Ours is totally rust free and has never been damaged or repaired.
I tried to take as many photos of the inside as possible. I wanted to show you all just how nice and tidy it is in there! Every Nook and Cranny is nice and clean with no damage or abuse present. The center carpet was covered with the cardboard that you see, so we decided to leave it there. Both front and rear curtains are present, along with the original Ice Cube Trays!! As I am not an experienced camper, I did not attempt to test any of the camping stuff. Judging by the overall meticulous care our Westfalia was treated to it's entire life, I would assume that all works well.
Please realize that the Westfalia is 31 years old. While it is very very nice, and has been apparently treated like a cherished member of the family, it is STILL a 31 year old vehicle. As with all classic and collectable vehicles, our VW is being sold without warranty. We have the clean and clear Original Pa. Title present!

Take a look at the 106 photographs below and see the actual condition of this One of A Kind Vanagon GL Westfalia Camper!!

By bidding you agree to all terms set forth below.

Many Thanks for Your Interest!
Good Luck with Your Bidding!!

Our low mileage Westy is just Gorgeous!!!

You can tell by the condition of the mostly original paint that this Beauty was Always Garaged and Pampered!!

The rocker seams are all original, and are still covered with rustproofing from new!

As I'm sure you all know, it is very typical for this area to be especially dirty and grimy!! This one looks great!.

1985 was the last model year before the outside "refreshing" that included square headlamps, and different bumpers, to mention a few.

The roof tent is excellent, and believed to be original!

The inside is extra clean!

Rustfproofed when new!

Zero Cracks in the dash

Extremely Low mileage
Our Westy have only been driven sparingly over the last 31 years. ...about 1200 miles per year!

You can tell by the condition of the carpet that it has always been protected with cardboard

The front seats both swivel. The passenger is pictured.

The appliances appear to be in excellent condition along with the rest of the van. I assume that they work, but i haven't tried anything.

Note the reflection....super clean!

There are mini ice cube trays included!

I would guess that this was a 2 person vehicle. The condition of the interior, especially the lack of wear would be a good indication! My guess is that it might have been used once a year, maybe less!


All compartments are Spic and Span clean!

Electrical cord for 110. Both front and rear curtains.


The rear seat folds down into a bed.!

Drive belts are fresh. All else appears untouched and original!
Nice and Clean!

All books and manuals still present and accounted for!!

The all important build sheet/sticker is still affixed to the original manual!
