Description for Volkswagen Other 1989

No, it's not 4WD, but with the added Torque Biasing Differential for maximized true-2WD traction, you'll barely notice the difference. And with FOX off-road suspension, lift springs, and all-terrain tires, you'll go almost anywhere a Syncro can without the high cost and maintenance.
Mileage is 232,000 but only 35,000 on rebuilt engine and barely 1000 on transmission rebuilt last year.

This is a completely self-contained micro-RV with a full kitchen (sink, running water, propane stove) portable toilet, sun-heated pressurized outdoor shower, efficient modern Engel fridge/freezer, and everything fully powered by Gowesty solar panels that can rest in the roof basket or pop out legs and sit wherever the sun is.
The previous owner and I poured a total of $36,000 into upgrading and renovating this into the ULTIMATE ADVENTURE VAN with all the comforts and functionality you can squeeze into these remarkable vehicles.

A full-system pre-sale inspection from Louis Foreign Auto revealed the following issues:
Low compression on one engine cylinder, resulting in some loss of horsepower. This is not an urgent repair—I've been driving it this way for years and never noticed—but Louis' bid for a valve repair job is $2,500
Leaky coolant line - $200 repair
2 torn CV boots
Cracked exhaust downpipe
1 clogged windshield washer nozzle
A few dings and rust spots (see photos)
Reverse spotlight doesn't work (needs rewiring)
