This 1990 High Top Adventure Wagon was for sale in Palo Alto, CA recently. The price? $22,000. She was brought to California from Arizona where she spent most of her life. It has an interesting interior with the kitchen sitting right up against the front seats. It looks like it has decent cabinet space with a small sink. Other than that, this van looks pretty normal.

vanagon third brake light

We found a LED brake light online that was wider than the version GoWesty sells. This light did not stick to the back window with double stick tape so the challenge was figuring out how to mount it. We thought about mounting it to the back hatch, but that would mean drilling into the hatch and leaving some exposed wire. We opted for mounting the light on the air conditioner’s evaporator housing.

This Syncro was for sale recently in Washington. The asking price? $37,000. Apparently, this van was for sale in Los Angeles, but people who went to see it were disappointed by a poor paint job, rust, etc. Someone up in Washington put some work into the van and sold it. According to this listing, the work was done by Small Car in Tacoma, WA. She looks great!

This beast is on The Samba and it’s incredible. We’ve seen a lot of tiger and zebra themed Vanagons, but this thing is an absolute beast. Check out the roll bars with the roof rack attached. And how about the semi-truck side view mirrors. Oh, and don’t forget those tires. Dang!

What do you do when you have a Syncro and want a high top? You make your own tent. This is one of the most unique Syncros I’ve seen. You have to click through to see the video. This thing is ready for any adventure.

This tri-color Vanagon could be called the bubble bum Vanagon. It sure looks like bubble gum. Where else would you get this combination of colors? It’s either bubble gum, or Hawaiian shaved ice.

This black beauty is could almost be called an A Team van, but it doesn’t have the red stripe. I love the custom grill and 70’s wheels, but the white roof rails caught my eye. If you zoom in close you can see the light brown interior. The steering wheel actually looks like wood in this pic.

File this one under crazy paint jobs. We will call it the sketch paint job for now, but it could easily be called the crayon paint job. It looks like a regular old Vanagon, but the paint job makes it stand out.

This is your basic Vanagon, but I love it. The Samba user, snwbrdr435, posted it. It’s a little rough around the edges, but the South African grill and custom wheels really make this one. I also love when Vanagon owners make use of all the space including the roof. The rocket box on top with what looks like surfboards adds such a nice touch as does the spare tire on the back hatch.


Here is another themed Vanagon. This time it’s a Coca-Cola lunch box theme. The otherwise stock van looks pretty nice with the two tone paint job. I wonder if they paid a licensing fee to paint this one. I doubt it!
