Available for auction is this 1991 Volkswagen Type 2 T3 Vanagon finished in Pastel White over a Grey velour interior. Offered as the Vanagon in the American market, the T3 was first introduced in 1979 and would continue production up until 1992. The T3 was the first Type 2 version to employ a water-cooled engine and the last to feature a rear-engine layout. This single owner 1991 example features a Volkswagen Jetta sourced water-cooled engine paired with a 5-speed manual transmission, upgraded Porsche vented front brakes, and factory air conditioning. Accompanied by a collection of records, this modified Vanagon is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Florida showing approximately 227k miles on the odometer.
Finished in Pastel White, this Vanagon features grey lower body cladding, bumpers, and removable Porsche decals on the front doors. The finish exhibits some stone chips, dings, and scratches commensurate with age and mileage. The driver’s side rear end cap has reportedly been refinished; detailed images can be found in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. Equipment includes Eurostyle halogen headlamps, a vintage Vasak Polak Porsche license plate frame, and 15” 5-spoke wheels dressed in a set of Nokian tires from 2013.
The 7-passenger cabin is upholstered in Grey velour with grey carpets and a black dashboard. Amenities include factory air conditioning, body-colored power-operated mirrors, crank windows, a folding rear bench seat, a rear defroster, and tinted glass. The seller confirms that all gauges, electronics, and accessories remain functional apart from the power mirrors.
Power comes from a Volkswagen Jetta sourced water-cooled engine rated at approximately 140 HP. The rear wheels are driven by way of an upgraded 5-speed manual transmission and the front brakes have been upgraded to vented Porsche units. The suspension consists of an independent setup in front and semi-trailing arms in the rear with telescopic shock absorbers and coil springs. The seller notes the vehicle has received regular oil and filter services as well as a recent tune-up in preparation for sale.
This sale will include a clean title.
