Hot shower, Check! 25 mpg turbo diesel, Check! High top for stealth camping, Check! Furnace for those cold nights, you got it!

I was building this van as my daily driver and as the ultimate family adventure vehicle. I never thought Iíd sell it but I have to for different reasons. This van was built up for reliability and livability. It can go anywhere with front and rear diff locks and a decoupler. It has a viscus coupler in it still, which is good for snow and ice. Cruise at 70 with zero issues.

This is an 87 VW Syncro Transporter with an 1.9 m-TDI Diesel engine in it (mechanical AHU) with around 75k miles. The van has around 160,000 miles on the chassis. It was originally a 1.6td (turbo diesel) from the factory and the m-TDI was professionally installed by BRU in San Diego. The pump is a Cummins diesel pump tuned by Westy Ventures. You can read a lot of good stuff about this pump on forums. It has an air-to-air intercooler and a new Donaldsonís air filter with the original Syncro snorkel. The van runs AMAZING and has no problem climbing up hills in 4th gear. I wouldnít hesitate to take this van across the country.

This is a European spec Syncro with a bunch of Euro goodies on it like H4 headlights, blinker guards, a laser cut aluminum Syncro bash guard, locked entry to the license plate door and a few other things. Everything works off of one key! I doesnít have power steering, which is better for reliability purposes, and the horn doesnít work. This is an easy fix, Iíve just never cared about the horn. There is very minimal surface rust. I have a bunch of receipts and paperwork for this van. I have the title in hand.
