I found a couple of nice hacks by Samba user Keyport Westy today. The dash on this 1986 Westy has been enhanced and is awesome! The wood panel ties in with the steering wheel and the painted surfaces just look fantastic. Wait until you see the matching door panel.

Here is another Vanagon spice rack mod. We have seen a spice rack in the back cabinet before, but this time the spices are towards the front of the Vanagon. The Samba user Tyler Anawalt posted pictures of his Vanagon and he has several of his own customizations including the spice rack above. Click through to see a few other personal customizations that may inspire you.


If you need more storage behind your front seats you might try with this Vanagon owner did. Check out the custom rear seat with a pop out table and storage shelf. You can use the table for outside cooking, and hide toiletries in the shelf behind the seat back. Very nice.



We see so many custom Vanagon interiors at Vanagon Hacks, but this one has to take the cake. This interior is was taken from an Audi A8 and replanted into a Vanagon. What?! Whoever did the job is a master because it looks incredible. Click through for more pics and a video walk through.



Check out these striped interior Vanagon cabinets. I’m not sure I could live with these as it would play tricks with my eyes, but the installation looks good. They have a nice Vanagon logo on one of the cabinet doors and seat cushions to match. Nice job.


Check out this VW Double Cab pickup with a custom shifter and housing. If you look closely, the housing is held on by a piece of tape but it still looks okay. Also of note is the compartment where the glove box usually goes. I’ve never seen that before so I don’t know if that was an original option or a custom job. It sure looks stock. Click through for a couple more shots.


When you drive a Vanagon, you find all sorts of places for storage. The Samba user, Alaric.H, likes the rear hatch for storage. What a great idea! It could be taken to a new level if someone would create sliding doors to hide the gear.

Some of the most interesting hacks we’ve seen have come from the Shooftie blog and this one is no different. How would you like some 2015 Dodge Caravan seats in your Vanagon? The installation required custom aluminum rails so the stock seat sliders could be used. Very nice. Click through for more.



Vanagon owners love to customize the interior of their ride with little trinkets, or gadgets, but this Vanagon was completely redone with new cabinets. The Samba user, Wolfphotos, says his van was already tricked out when he bought it, but he’s posting pics anyway. The cherry veneer interior looks great, and has a lot of room for storage. We’ve seen so many custom interiors we may have to create a separate category for them on the site.


This 1982 Westy has quite a bit of character. It is listed for sale at $14,900. While that might seem like a lot, Vanagon’s are a pretty hot commodity these days. The interior looks eclectic, but the palm tree carpet caught my eye. How would you like to live in this van full time?
