1988 Volkswagen Syncro Westfalia - Audi 1.8L Turbo!


A desirable Syncro Westfalia camper van, this 1988 Vanagon features many upgrades beginning with a turbocharged Audi 1.8L engine mated to the five speed manual transmission. This engine was installed by Stephan’s Auto Haus in 2019 in California and receipts from the work are included. Refinished in a beautiful blue color over grey interior, the exterior of the van shows very nicely. The 16” Passat wheels are wrapped in 225/60 Michelin Premier A/S tires, braking is provided by front discs and rear drums, and the suspension has been upgraded to Bilstein shocks along with new springs and bushings in 2019. Inside, the grey interior appears to be in very good condition with new carpets just installed, swiveling front seats, a Propex heater and a TruckFridge refrigerator inside. In the rear living space is the standard Westfalia setup with a fold down rear bench seat into the bed, stove and sink kitchen area, as well as the pop top bed above. Inside the cabinets sits a 1,100-watt inverter, dual battery setup, and subwoofer in the rear storage area. If you are on the hunt for a Westfalia Syncro van that you can truly drive and enjoy, look no further than this 1988 Vanagon. Included with the van are documents detailing the work completed on this van, including the massive receipt from Stephan’s Auto Haus totaling over $47,000.
